The Brow Lift By Dr. Kouris
Brow lifts lends dramatic vitalization to the look of your forehead as well as the region between your eyes, compensating for the myriad effects of aging. A brow lift can be done to help smooth furrowed foreheads, frown lines and other signs of aging that have developed in these areas over the years. Brows lifts correct drooping brows protruding over eyelids and elevate the brows, helping your face and eyes to appear much less heavy or tired.
Often, patients who are considering a brow lift find that eyelid surgery, face lift, and wrinkle reducing procedures like Botox® or Xeomin® enhances the lift. Dr. Kouris will council you about all the options.
What To Expect During And After Your Brow Lift Procedure
Since every patient is unique, with varying needs, brow lift methods differ a bit.
One type of lift involves minimal incision, also known as an endoscopic lift. It uses unique instrumentation that goes through tiny incisions made behind the hairline near the temples and scalp, allowing Dr. Kouris to attend to forehead creasing, a drooping brow, or both as needed. He might also possibly create incisions that follow the eyelid’s natural line, which helps in giving a more refreshed appearance.
Another method for creating a brow lift methods is the coronal lift. This procedure will use an incision hidden in the hairline that allows Dr. Kouris to raise the forehead and eliminate excess skin. In patients with a large forehead, Dr. Kouris can also reduce the forehead to more balanced proportions.
Prior to your procedure, you and Dr. Kouris will discuss which brow lift technique will be the best fit for you.
You’ll want to keep in mind that brow lift procedures do entail anesthesia. What kind of anesthetic will be best for you is something you’ll discuss also with Dr. Kouris.
After your lift, you will likely have taping or wraps on your forehead. These are used to aid in reducing post-procedure swelling and bruising. Once swelling and bruising fade, you’ll see how much smoother, fresher and younger your forehead appears.

When you have your initial consult with Dr. Kouris you and he will discuss your expectations, as well as if a brow lift is a good fit for you, or if a different procedure such as eyelid surgery would better suit.
