Aging results in drooping of the eyebrows that can crowd the eyes and make the upper eyelids appear full. Drooping brows can be remedied with a browlift procedure to lift, shape and reposition the eyebrows. This recreates the refined, delicate brow arch that symbolizes youth and beauty.

The browlift procedure can create very natural, subtle and beautiful results in the right hands. In many cases of eye area aging a browlift is the only way to truly rejuvenate the eye area and eliminate the drooping brow that develops over time. A browlift involves elevating the brow into a more youthful position. This has the effect of opening the eyes and reducing the heaviness and hooding of the upper eyelids. In some cases of severe aging of the eyes, a browlift will be combined with an upper eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty to more effectively rejuvenate the eye area.

In my work as a veterinarian, I am accustomed to providing medical care, but I suddenly found myself in the unfamiliar position of patient. Dr. W made that...

I am very impressed with Dr. Weber and his staff. Every person I have met within his office is very nice, and they act as if you are the only patient they are concerned about at that moment. I've met with other surgeons that rushed me through consultations, and it definitely pays to go to one that doesn't treat you...

I found Dr. Weber to have everything I was looking when it came to plastic surgeons. He was professional, caring, honest and from others who had surgery performed by him, he is extremely talented. Both he and his staff are 5-star.

I was recommended by a few friends. Dr. Weber is fantastic! I love the youthful look of my skin now that I have had my treatments. He takes the time to understand my goals, fuller lips, smoother skin, reduction of fine lines. It feels great to constantly hear how young my skin looks and how pretty my face is since...

I found Dr. Weber after looking through the reviews here at RealSelf and after meeting him and his staff I knew that I did not need to look any further. From the time I walked into his office I knew that I had made the right choice. Every member of his staff took a personal interest in me. Camille, who is Dr. Weber...

There are multiple, highly effective approaches to performing a browlift (endoscopic browlift, tricophytic/ hairline approach, coronal approach and direct or mid-forehead). The ideal approach depends upon the severity of brow and eyelid aging as well as the hairline position. A critical part of every browlift or blepharoplasty consultation is to determine how much eyelid aging results from brow droop vs. heavy eyelids. This is an important distinction as the optimal result, in some cases, can involve either a browlift or blepharoplasty or a combined procedure to both lift the sagging brow as well as remove excess upper eyelid tissue.

Browlift can address:

  • Lift the drooping eyebrow
  • Eliminate “hooding” of the outer part of the upper eyelid
  • Recreate the subtle, arched eyebrow synonymous with youth and beauty
  • Reduce or eliminate frown lines
  • “Open” the eyes
  • Lower the hairline
