About Brow liftS
What is a brow lift?
Traditional brow lift surgery involves an incision along the hairline from ear to ear, lifting the skin and adjusting the muscles in the brow. The result can be dramatic for those with significantly saggy brows but can appear unnatural for those with mild brow heaviness and sagging. Taking needed steps to prevent this kind of surgery is becoming more and more common. Today, brow lift and forehead lift patients have options, including BOTOX and other injectable medications. Those who are displeased with the position of their brow or have excess upper eyelid skin may be good candidates for either a surgical or nonsurgical brow lift with or without upper eyelid surgery.
Who is a candidate for a brow lift?
Patients will undergo a consultation with facial plastic surgeon Dr. Klausner so she can listen to your needs and fully examine the treatment areas. We then discuss options to rejuvenate your brow and forehead. Dr. Klausner may also show before-and-after photos and answer any questions as they come up. Those who would benefit from a surgical procedure will be given pertinent information to take home and read at their leisure. Qualified candidates can then return to her New York office to discuss how to best prepare for the recommended procedure. She will see to it that you fully understand how brow lift surgery and post-operative recovery work.

"Dr. Klausner is hands down the best! She performed a sinus surgery and straightened my septum in 2017 and I could not be happier with the result. Dr. Klausner truly listens to her patients and provides expert guidance and thorough explanations for her recommended approach. When I saw her the day following my surgery she gave me a gentle face wash all around the area and I could've cried it felt so nice. Her follow up with me was impeccable. She took great care of me through my entire recovery journey. Can not recommend Dr. Klausner enough!!"- A. / Google / Feb 25, 2022

"I met with Dr. Klausner to have a large cyst removed from the bridge of my nose in between my eyes. It had become infected and was very painful. My local ER doctor had sliced it open to drain it and I was left with a big gaping wound on my face. Needless to say, I was distraught and very self-conscious. Dr. Klausner was incredible. She inspected the prior doctor’s work and made a few careful incisions to further drain the cyst. It was clear that it was something that had been under the surface for quite a number of years and Dr. Klausner was very thorough in her inquiry and considered all possible causes. Our first consultation lasted for almost two hours. Because of the location of the cyst, she sent me to have an MRI to ensure that it was not connected to any of the bone. When the infection subsided and it was ready to be removed, Dr. Klausner patiently and carefully excised the whole thing. She has also scheduled several follow-up appointments with me to check on how I am healing. I do have a small scar, which was expected, but it it’s getting flatter and less noticeable every day. I cannot speak highly enough about my experience with Dr. Klausner. Highly recommend."- E.R. / Google / Jan 01, 2022
"So grateful that I found Dr. Klausner. She is an amazig doctor and person. After going to numerous doctors/surgeons for my large nasal perforation and saddling she was the only one who listened and diagnosed my problem. She gave me a detailed plan on how to proceed. She was very empathetic, kind and patient through the entire process. My surgery was extremely complicated but I'm happy to report a success! No other surgeon wanted to help me as they all said it was not possible to close such a large perforation. Dr. Klausner did it!!! She has truly changed my life!"- T.R. / Google / Nov 02, 2021
Why do my eyebrows look flat?
As we age, the natural arch of the eyebrow descends due to wrinkles and a loss of fullness between the brow and forehead. The eyebrow can even droop, pushing the skin on the upper eyelid downward. The more the brow falls, the more it accentuates the signs of aging around the eyes, resulting in the need for not only a brow lift but also an upper blepharoplasty to restore a more youthful look.
What is the next step?
If you are in good health, have realistic expectations, and are concerned about the aging of your forehead or brow, you are ready to take your next step by scheduling a brow lift consultation with female facial plastic surgeon Dr. Klausner at her New York, NY office. Schedule your initial consultation today, and let the renowned Klausner Institute manage all your aesthetic procedure needs.
Brow lift FAQs
Should I get a brow lift or a facelift?
Many times, signs of aging can take place in more than just the forehead region. If you have wrinkles or loose skin in the mid to lower face, facelift surgery may be worth consideration. Dr. Klausner can perform an assessment and make recommendations for maximum results.
Will I look fake?
Our clinic has performed countless successful brow lift procedures for patients in New York. Whether you want results that are subtle or dramatic, Dr. Klausner can create outcomes that make you appear more awake and alert in a natural way. An experienced professional works with your facial structure and anatomy every step of the way.
Can I just use BOTOX?
Not necessarily. BOTOX is a good option for patients who want subtle results, but keep in mind that your outcomes are temporary. You will need to return for follow-up appointments every few months. Injections like BOTOX also don't remove excess or sagging skin in the brow.
Can Facelift Surgery Remove Buccal Fat?
With buccal fat removal during facelift surgery, patients can address fullness in the cheeks and classic signs of aging in a single procedure.Read
