Brow Lift Overview
Baton Rouge, LA plastic surgeon, Dr. Erick Sanchez performs brow lift surgeries regularly at Sanchez Plastic Surgery. It is a popular cosmetic surgery that corrects sagging skin on the brow due to the natural process of aging, and repositions the forehead skin at the eyebrow. A brow lift erases the tired, sad or angry look of a lowered brow. Additionally, this may improve the appearance of the upper eyelid (to look youthful and rested). Dr. Sanchez can discuss several surgical techniques and post-operation non-surgical treatments available at your consultation, and selection will depend on the severity of your brow and the goals that you wish to achieve.

"He is phenomenal! From Making a decision to actually getting a procedure done it was a 3 year long journey with anual visits and updates. Each and every time him and his staff were sooooo kind, knowledgeable and made sure we were comfortable. The day of the procedure he was there early , introduced me to everyone who would also be in the operating room and all of them were also comforting and keep reassuring us that “everything would be well!!” Every post op visit has been a great experience. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. SANCHEZ AND HIS STAFF. We give him not 10, but 11 (eleven) stars."- A.P. / Facebook / Aug 14, 2019
"I had a neck/chin liposuction yesterday with some fat transferred to my under eye area for a fuller, more awake look. My experience was amazing from the start! Dr. Sanchez and everyone in the office was so sweet! Not to mention everyone who took care of me at the surgery center. I mean absolutely personable and friendly people. He is also very knowledgable and knows what he's doing! It's the day after the procedure and my under eyes look SO SO SO SO GOOD! I was kind of nervou...s because it's the forefront of my face that everyone will see, but as soon as I came out of anesthesia my husband said he's glad I did it and it looked amazing. I have no puffiness or black eyes, although I have been lightly rubbing arnica bruise cream every 8 hours, arnica pills and pineapple juice. He has great bedside manners and truly cares about his work. I will be going back to him for a tummy tuck after I have kids to hide some 3rd degree burn scars I have on my stomach from a BBL from a plastic surgeon in Florida. I wont ever go to another plastic surgeon. I recommend!!!"- C.E. / Facebook / Aug 10, 2019

Best Candidates for Brow Lift
The best candidates for those seeking brow lift surgery, include men and/or women who have:
- Low set eyebrows that produce a “tired” or “frowning” appearance
- Sagging eyelid that is caused by a droopy brow
- Forehead wrinkles that appear near the brow
- Overall good health; non-smokers
What to Expect with Brow Lift
During the initial consultation, we will evaluate the overall health of the skin, which will include skin quality and looseness. He will also evaluate the folds and wrinkles of the forehead and hairline, as well as the position of the inner, middle and outer portions of the eyebrows and the upper eyelids. This evaluation will help him to determine if a brow lift is the best procedure, and eliminate if an eyelid lift is needed instead. During a brow lift, one of several possible surgical techniques will be used. Some common incision approaches include along the natural upper eyelid crease or the brow’s hairline. A slightly more invasive approach is a coronal incision, which runs from ear to ear underneath the patient’s hair. The endoscopic brow lift is most often used, which is the least invasive approach.
Brow Lift Recovery
Swelling and bruising are expected on the forehead and eyes after brow lift surgery, although this will vary between patients. This swelling subsides within the first 1-2 weeks. The forehead may have some decreased sensation that will improve over time. Most patients can resume modest activity in 7-10 days, with a complete recovery in about 3-4 weeks.
