Brow lift improves signs of aging by smoothing frown lines, wrinkles and expression lines on your forehead and by repositioning sagging eyebrows that cause hooding of the upper eyelids.

Specialized techniques utilizing endoscopic instrumentation and shorter, temporal incisions hidden behind the hairline, restore a naturally younger, alert appearance.

The temporal brow lifts the tail of the brow and temple area through fewer incisions.

Generally an outpatient procedure, a browlift is most commonly performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, and may require an overnight stay when combined with other procedures.

Recovery depends on the extent of your browlift, and any accompanying procedures. You may engage in light activity the day after your surgery; a return to more normal activity may take 1-2 weeks. Your appearance will gradually refine over the following 6-8 weeks.

Proper skincare and sun protection are essential during healing and to maintain your results.

Results are often long-term, turning back the clock on your appearance from 8 to 10 years. The muscles that create the frown lines and furrows are partially removed therefore the improvement in the appearance of frown lines is long lasting.

“Thank you for my new profile. I adore my new nose and my smooth forehead. Truly, you are a gifted and talented surgeon. I am glad you are my doctor. Thank you for your care and kindness.” Shannon

“We felt compelled to send an extra “thank you” your way! Please know how much we appreciated your willingness to come over and look at my face on a Saturday, (instead of adding to my anxiety and waiting for the office hours Monday) and then again on Sunday. Wow! Dr. Codner, you are a world-class surgeon with an “old school” work ethic, a combination rarely seen today within the elite medical community. So again, thank you for the “above and beyond” treatment I received while in your care.” Doug & Elizabeth
