For many patients, the brows are in a low position over the orbital rims. This generally looks masculine, and may also makes patients look angry or tired. A brow lift elevates the brows above the orbital rim, giving a refreshed and feminine appearance.
All three of these procedures are usually be done at the same time. They can also be done in combination with a hair transplant.
What each person wants and needs varies, depending on the size of the brow bone and the length of the forehead. Dr. Rodman will work with every patient to meet their individual goals and bring balance and harmony to the patient’s face.

Types of Brow Lift
There are two ways of performing a brow lift surgery. Either a traditional brow lift or an endoscopic brow lift will be used depending on your individual needs.
Using the traditional method is more extensive and requires one continuous incision made starting from your ears and ending around your hairline. Based on where your hairline is, Dr. Rodman will try to avoid making a visible scar. The method allows for more significant corrections to be made, but will also lead to a longer recovery time.
The endoscopic lift is the less extensive method where Dr. Roman makes a few short incisions in the scalp to insert a small camera into the treatment area. This allows her to see the area clearly without making a full incision. Since the incisions are small, this procedure is considered less invasive than a traditional brow lift. Also, you will have a shorter recovery period and minimal scarring.
Preparing for the brow lift
Before you can have your brow lift procedure done, you might have to make some lifestyle adjustments. You will get detailed instructions from Dr. Rodman that you will need to adhere to in order to experience the best results. These instructions will require you to stop smoking, drinking alcohol, and taking certain medications in the time leading up to the procedure and for some time after.
Dr. Rodman will also perform an examination of your facial features and ask you about your medical history to determine if you’d make a good fit for the procedure. Patients undergoing a brow lift should be in good physical health and have realistic expectations.
