Which Brow Lift Procedure Is Right for You?

Eye Procedures New York NY

The forehead and brow are susceptible to the effects of aging. The deep worry and frown lines appear, creating an older and grumpy appearance for the individual. The eyebrows can also droop, making the eyes look smaller and tired. A brow lift tightens the skin, eliminating lines and wrinkles, while elevating the eyebrows for a more youthful and alert appearance. Dr. Maurice Khosh in NYC offers three different options in brow lifts, but which one is right for you?

Brow Lift Procedures

The traditional open brow lift surgery requires a long incision across the forehead to remove excess skin and lift the eyebrows. While effective, there is more scarring and a longer recovery with this procedure, as well as numbness in the scalp. An endoscopic brow lift is less invasive with smaller incisions, which is the most popular brow lift Dr. Khosh performs. One other option is the temporal brow lift, which focuses on elevating the outer eyebrows, but does not address the upper forehead.

Each of these procedures can provide a rejuvenation for the eyebrows, but every patient has different expectations for their results. Here are some of the indications to determine which procedure is right for you.

  • Open brow lift surgery. The long incision/scar, longer recovery and possible scalp numbness make the open brow lift less popular. However, for patients with longer foreheads who want a forehead reduction and lift, this can provide the facial balance desired.
  • Endoscopic brow lift. For forehead and eyebrow rejuvenation, the endoscopic brow lift is the premium option. It uses smaller incisions that are hidden within the hairline with a quicker recovery and without the scalp numbness.
  • Temporal brow lift. Patients who do not need a forehead lift, just the eyebrows, a temporal brow lift may be all that is needed.

Dr. Khosh also offers a non-surgical brow lift that can be achieved with cosmetic injectables like Botox®. This can be an option for those with minimal sagging of the eyebrows or forehead.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
