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.
What Are The Benefits Of A Brow Lift?
The aesthetic benefits you can achieve with a personalized brow lift procedure performed by Dr. Klausner include:
- A refreshed, more alert, and younger appearance
- Smoothing facial creases (forehead lines, angry 11's between the eyebrows)
- Restoring the natural arch to your eyebrows
- Reducing sagging in the upper eyelids
- Minimizing the appearance of Crow's feet
- Opening up the eyes
- Dramatic, long-lasting, and natural-looking results
"Dr. Klausner is WONDERFUL (and so is her staff!) My daughter wanted a nose-job by a woman..so we interviewed several female doctors in NYC and Dr. Klausner was by far the kindest, most patient, and most thorough person we saw. We chose to go with her and the entire process was super positive - from the pre-op visits, to the surgery, to the post- op -- Dr. Klausner is wonderfully caring and invested in her patients. I highly recommend her (and plan to use her when I need some work done for myself :)"- A.P. / Google / Nov 12, 2022
"Dr. Klausner is a fantastic surgeon and I'm so glad I found her! I first saw her in 2021 for a consult and needed to take some time to think about going through with the surgery proposed (septoplasty, turbinate reduction, fracture repairs) and explore other options. I ended up going back to Dr. Klausner in 2022 because I felt she was the best out there and I needed this surgery. She is extremely detailed in her notes and explained every little detail to me, which I appreciate. Post-op she took the time to check in and make sure I was okay and even called me at night when she knew I was feeling nauseous. I also had weekly office visits to ensure I was healing properly and we’re both very happy with the results. Overall she's a compassionate and skilled doctor and I would recommend her to anyone."- J.S. / Google / Nov 11, 2022
"Juliana Longoria, an aesthetician in Dr. Klausner’s practice, is fantastic! I’ve seen her several times for dermaplaning and most recently, the Clear and Brilliant laser treatment. She is thorough, thoughtful and conscientious, taking the time to understand what I’m looking for and what I can expect with each procedure. I’m so pleased with the results and trust her with all my future skincare needs."- A.W. / Google / Aug 13, 2022

"I am so thrilled that I chose Dr. Klausner as my plastic surgeon, she is absolutely phenomenal. During my visits for both surgical and non-surgical procedures, she gave me her undivided, focused attention. She attends to the smallest of details - - which is what you want in a plastic surgeon - - and I trust her completely. She and her team have been with me every step of the way during this journey and I cannot imagine seeing any other facial plastic surgeon. I love visiting Dr. Klausner's office and seeing Melissa and Jeslyne, and I am so happy I found the Klausner Institute!"- A. / Healthgrades / Mar 13, 2022
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
