Grand Rapids plastic surgeon, Dr. Brad Bengtson, uses advanced endoscopic techniques to perform browplasty, also known as a forehead lift or brow lift, at his practice, the Bengtson Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery. When it comes to helping patients who are unhappy with wrinkled, sagging skin on their forehead by performing a brow lift Grand Rapids patients have gotten to discover he performs them with expert techniques and nearly undetectable incisions.

This procedure repositions hooded or low brows to allow for a natural, youthful, and restored appearance. Brow lift surgery, when performed with experience and vision, can result in a vibrant, happy, and youthful appearance. Dr. Bengtson and Dr. Alfonso take great care not to produce artificial or overdone results, and they do not alter the hairline.

A Grand Rapids brow lift treats the upper portion of the face (above the eyes), and it may be performed as a standalone procedure or a complement to eyelid or facelift surgery for optimal results. Brow lifting decreases the creases across the forehead and at the base of the nose between the eyes, while naturally restoring the brows to their higher position. In addition, we are finding that the angle of the brows matters just as much as the level of the brows. Dr. Bengtson or Dr. Alfonso tailor the lateral brow in each patient to sweep the tail of the brow higher, resulting in a more youthful, open eye.

What is a brow lift?

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift or browplasty, smooths expression lines of the brow and forehead, raises a hooded brow, and repositions low-set brows. A Grand Rapids brow lift at our practice typically includes the following techniques:

  • Several short incisions of 1 cm or 1/2 inch hidden within the scalp through which an endoscope, a special surgical instrument, is used to release and reposition your eyebrows to a normal, proportional area on your forehead. This is similar to how gall bladders are removed today, but without larger open incision lines.
  • Short incisions within the hairline at the temples or within the natural crease of the upper eyelid may also improve the appearance of a hooded brow or frown lines.

Ideal Candidates

Who is a good candidate for a Grand Rapids brow lift?

Age alone does not define who might be a good candidate for a brow lift or facial rejuvenation. Men and women at our Grand Rapids practice often choose these kinds of procedures to delay or improve visible indications of facial aging.

The following factors generally define good candidates for endoscopic brow lift procedures in Grand Rapids:

  • You can clearly define why you want brow lift surgery.
  • You understand what the procedure can and cannot accomplish.
  • You accept the potential risks of the procedure and your responsibilities as a patient.
  • You are healthy, emotionally secure, and stable.
  • You accept that you will need to make healthy lifestyle choices to maintain the results achieved by this procedure.
  • You have realistic expectations and are willing to accept minor asymmetries.

Ultherapy and BOTOX CosmeticNew, Nonsurgical Brow-Lifting Alternatives

If you prefer a non-surgical approach to lifting your brow area, Ultherapy and BOTOX Cosmetic injections using a BOTOX Brow Lift technique may also be used to effectively shape and reposition your brows.

Ultherapy is a new, non-surgical brow-lift method that uses ultrasound. Both treatments are office procedures that may be performed in less than one hour with minimal to no downtime. Ultherapy is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive facelift procedure that uses pulsed, focused ultrasound transmitted through the skin without treating or damaging it. Using the body’s own natural healing process, Ultherapy lifts, tones, and tightens loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin.

One Ultherapy treatment can predictably lift the brows 2 to 3 millimeters, effectively shaping the brow angle and creating a greater upward sweep of the tail of the brow. The result is a more open, youthful appearance. For those who prefer a nonsurgical option to improving their appearance, an Ultherapy brow lift can be a great option for patients in Grand Rapids, Detroit, and Birmingham, Michigan.
