Eyebrow Lift

Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Lift in Santa Rosa

A heavy, drooping brow area can cause hooding of the upper eyelids, which can create an appearance that is tired, sad or even angry. At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Greg Chernoff offers effective non-surgical and surgical eyebrow lift techniques, depending on the severity of the droop, that may help restore the brows and forehead to a more youthful position.

Who Can Benefit From an Eyebrow Lift Surgery?

The indication for an eyebrow lift isn’t always a person’s age. Ideal candidates for a brow lift are healthy men and women who are looking to improve moderate-to-severe sagging or drooping of the eyebrows or eyelids.

If you are experiencing any drooping from the eyebrow, whether it’s mild or severe, there are some solutions to give you that more youthful and relaxed appearance that you desire.

Dr. Greg Chernoff performs all eyebrow lift procedures from advanced surgical to minimally invasive surgical, and non-surgical and will discuss which procedure would best accommodate your goals during your personalized consultation.

Often, the best option for moderate-to-severe eyebrow droop is a surgical correction. The surgical eyebrow lift technique has dramatically improved resulting in an endoscopic technique that is used today.  The endoscopic technique allows Dr. Chernoff to make a tiny incision. This small incision is particularly good for men with receding hairlines that have heavy and droopy hooding of the upper eyelids.

A brow lift also helps smooth any creases that develop across the forehead and softens frown lines appearing across the bridge of the nose and in between the brows.

Some patients may also benefit from an upper and lower eyelid lift to address excess skin, fat deposits and bags. The procedure can be performed in our office, operating suite, or in an outpatient surgery center. It can often be combined with other procedures.

Preparing for Surgery

Prior to any surgical procedure, Dr. Chernoff recommends that all our patients read our “Patient Guide for Plastic Surgery”. The guide explains important points that all patients should think about as they are considering a procedure.

After Surgery Care

Patients are often pleasantly surprised by the minimal amount of pain they experienced during their recovery period. When you wake up from surgery, there will be bandages around the small incisions to promote optimal healing and recovery. Cold compresses can be used to help minimize swelling and reduce pain.*

Following your eyelid surgery, Dr. Chernoff and our dedicated team of recovery and after care nurses will provide you with specific instructions regarding the best way to care for your eyes to promote healing while reducing the potential for infection.

Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery patients who travel to our Santa Rosa office for their eyebrow lift can choose to stay in our Guest House after their procedure. Our staff will advise you with the details.

What is a Non-Surgical Eyebrow Lift?

When an eyebrow droop is mild, neurotoxins such as BOTOX, Xeomin, or Daxxify is often recommended. Neurotoxin is injected into the muscles that raise the eyebrow causing the muscles to relax and helps open up the eye area to provide a well-rested, natural-looking result. Patients are advised that the results are temporary and typically last 3 to 6 months.*

For patients with moderate-to-severe eyebrow droop, however, injecting BOTOX can worsen the condition by making the droop greater. BOTOX can be an excellent option for the horizontal forehead lines as well as the vertical lines between the eyebrows.

What Results Can You Expect After Your Eyelift Surgery?

Dr. Chernoff has safely and effectively performed over 4,000 eyebrow lift procedures by using a combination of endoscopic and advanced surgical techniques. Dr. Chernoff’s main goal is to provide patients with natural-looking results that leave little or no sign of a cosmetic procedure.*
