About Brow Lift Surgery
As we get older, skin laxity causes many areas of the face to sag. This is especially critical in the upper face region and typically affects men and women.
When you look at yourself in the mirror, do you feel you appear tired or angry, notice frown lines between the brows, or are bothered by a drooping brow? Brow lift surgery by Dr. Nachbar at Scottsdale Plastic Surgery may be the right cosmetic treatment for your needs.

"I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Nachbar and his staff. Since his staff were my first and last points of contact, I'll start with them. They were incredibly friendly and helpful. I flew in from out of state for tattoo excision. From the initial contact to walking out the door following my surgical follow-up the day after the procedure, they were kind, polite and accommodating. The smiles and kindness don't feel put on or forced -- his staff seem to be genuinely happy, nice people. Dr. Nachbar was very polite and extremely good at what he did. He gave me a great explanation of what he would do and he was able to exceed my expectations. I had minimal post-surgical pain -- I have actually managed my pain with OTC pain relievers, although he did give me a prescription. Dr. Nachbar was very respectful and treated his staff in a respectful fashion as well. I was very happy with the treatment I received and I highly recommend Dr. Nachbar. I legitimately wish I had known of him and seen him first for excision tattoo removal before spending $2K on laser treatments that had no measurable affect."- E.J. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018
"It's been 7yrs and my surgery results are still amazing. I get a text from Dr. Nachbar's office every year checking in with me. I can't recommend them highly enough. After my experience there my friend also went in and had a procedure and is extremely happy with her results as well."- D.A. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018
"Tummy Tuck - The overall care, skill and follow up by Dr. Nachbar and his staff were outstanding. The same can be said about Greenbaum Surgery Center who did an excellent job.My surgery was done in the morning approx 8:30 a.m and by 5:00 pm I felt very confident that the final result will be great. Dr. Nachbar visited me that night which was very comforting. He's compassionate and highly skillful at his profession."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Sep 06, 2018
"Breast Implant Revision - Dr. Nachbar and his staff were so professional, patient, and put me at ease. I spoke to his staff regarding their surgeries with Dr. Nachbar and I was so impressed. Dr. Nachbar gave me all the time I needed and was so thorough that I had no doubt he was going to be my surgeon, despite the heavy expense. I felt I was in the best hands in the world."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Aug 29, 2018
Dr. Nachbar generally performs brow lift using general anesthesia. The incision technique used during a brow lift is determined based on the severity of the looseness, whether or not the forehead is affected, and the position of the hairline. There are many approaches to consider:
- Traditional Incision
Also called the open lift incision, this places the incision at the top of the head behind the hairline. The traditional incision not only masks scarring, it provides a certain degree of controlled lifting during the procedure. The traditional incision works well for those with both a sagging brow and frown lines. This may be the better technique if you are at risk for having a receding hairline.
- Trichophytic Incision
This incision is placed right along the hairline. This incision allows significant lifting of the brow for women and men who have a strong hairline with little risk for recession.
- Lateral Brow Lift
Also known as a temporal brow lift, this technique sets the incision inside the hairline just above the temples. The lateral incision allows the outer areas of the brow to be raised and helps sagging that is present in the outer brows. The lateral technique also helps to correct Crow’s feet.
- Endoscopic Forehead Lift
This is one of the more modern techniques used in a brow lift. It places several tiny incisions in the hairline and inserts an endoscope, which moves down to the area of the eyebrow to release its attachments. Through the camera of the endoscope, the brow tissue is suspended using stitches to keep the brow in its higher position. While it is effective, it generally does not produce as much improvement as the open techniques.
What to Expect
There will likely be some bruising and swelling in the upper face near the brows and possibly around the eyes. Cold compresses may help to decrease the swelling and Dr. Nachbar advises patients sleep with their heads elevated for 3 – 4 nights following their surgery.
It is important to avoid excessive movement or activities that may place stress on the face. The average recovery time from this procedure is about 2 – 3 weeks. The outcome can usually be seen immediately, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance that looks softer and more alert.
