Is a sagging, heavy brow making you look tired, old, or unhappy with your appearance? As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity, and the forehead and brow area are the first areas to show signs of aging. This loss of elasticity results in a heaviness around the eyebrows and wrinkles in the forehead, making many men look artificially old, tired, and even angry.
At Facial Aesthetic Concepts, we specialize in surgical treatments that focus on improving our patients’ appearance and self-confidence. If you’ve noticed your forehead getting heavier and showing more wrinkles, a forehead or brow lift may help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
If you are tired of those lines and wrinkles giving off the wrong impression, contact us online or call us today at (888) 713-7814 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Richard Gangnes and his team and create a plan to get the youthful appearance you desire.

Why Choose Facial Aesthetic Concepts?
At Facial Aesthetic Concepts, our team will work with you to better understand your aesthetic goals and create a personalized plan to improve your appearance and self-confidence.
Many men focus on the eyes as the main contributor to that tired or angry look, but it is more often the brow line and forehead that create this unwanted expression. A brow lift can bring years back to the eye area by lifting and smoothing the sagging, heavy brow, giving a more vibrant, youthful appearance.
Many physicians shy away from brow lifts because older techniques left large scars or pulled the skin too tightly, giving a surprised appearance. At Facial Aesthetic Concepts, our brow lifts are performed endoscopically with the assistance of lasers. This minimizes scarring around the hairline and delivers a very natural look and shape to the brow and eye area.
Best Candidates for Brow Lifts
From a health standpoint, the ideal candidate for brow lift surgery is physically healthy and does not smoke. As with any surgery, understanding the limitations of your cosmetic surgery and having realistic expectations for your results can set you up for a successful outcome.
Our surgeons and their highly skilled team will work with you to determine whether a brow lift alone will help you achieve your aesthetic goals. In some cases, additional procedures, such as eyelid surgery may be recommended at the same time to achieve the look you want.
In addition to eyelid surgery, brow lift patients also may want to have BOTOX® Cosmetic to address wrinkles in the eye area. A brow lift can be combined with procedures that address aging in the lower part of the face, such as a microlift, neck lift, or injectable fillers for increased volume in the face or to address wrinkling around the mouth.
What to Expect with Brow Lift Surgery
An endoscopic brow lift is a minimally invasive procedure during which several small incisions are made discreetly behind the hairline. Tiny endoscopes and surgical instruments are inserted through these incisions.
Excess skin on the forehead may be removed if necessary, and underlying muscle and tissue are repositioned or removed to help eliminate a heavy brow line, reduce deep furrows, and help restore a youthful look. The skin and underlying tissue are lifted and then held in place with dissolvable sutures. A typical brow lift procedure takes about 1 to 2 hours to complete.
Your Brow Lift Recovery & Results
Because an endoscopic brow lift utilizes small incisions and tools, you can expect a faster healing time and less bruising than with other options. You can expect to experience some swelling and bruising that can last for up to 10 days following the procedure. Cold compresses can be applied to help reduce these symptoms. You will be given full after-care instructions so that when you return home following the procedure, you will know exactly what to do for optimal recovery. Most patients are able to return to work within 5 to 7 days after the procedure.
Your surgeon and his team will create and carry out a treatment plan to address your concerns and help restore a youthful and natural look to your brow area, giving you the confidence you deserve. Request a complimentary consultation and take the first step to a new and youthful you!
