What is a Direct Incision Brow Lift?

Direct brow lift is a cosmetic surgery to elevate and reposition the brows to a natural-looking, higher position. Where are the incisions for a brow lift? While all brow lift procedures involve incisions and lifting the skin, the term �direct� refers to the way Dr. Buonassisi accesses the underlying brow structures and involves fine incisions made just above either eyebrow, in the forehead area. The incisions are carefully placed inside the patient�s natural facial creases and they fade over time. This procedure allows for a direct and significant lifting of the eyebrows.By removing excess sagging skin around the forehead and repositioning the muscle and tissues that lie below the surface, a direct incision brow lift corrects a heavy or sagging down to rejuvenate and restore the upper third of the face.

Who is a Direct Incision Brow Lift For?

People who desire a brow lift often feel like they have a grumpy, tired, or angry expression. It�s common to wonder, �will a brow lift open my eyes?� In the right candidates, this result is one of the main benefits of this procedure. Patients who make excellent candidates for direct incision brow lift are concerns with these conditions:

  • Deep furrows or lines in the forehead due to aging
  • A genetically predisposed low-set brow
  • Deep creases that require more than neuromodulator or dermal filler injections to correct
  • Sagging skin and brows that will benefit from removing excess skin
  • Tired, aging eyes
  • Hooded or sagging eyelids
  • Heavy brows

For the right patient, these concerns are all treatable with a direct incision brow lift.


How is a Direct Incision Brow Lift Performed?

To perform a direct incision brow lift, Dr. Buonassisi makes small incisions just above the lateral eyebrows. He carefully places incisions in the patient�s natural forehead creases to lift the brow area. The incisions are closed with very fine stitches that are removed one week later. Dr. Buonassisi hides the incisions in the natural forehead creases, and over time they are not noticeable at all.[embed][/embed]

What to Expect with Direct Incision Brow Lift Surgery

Direct incision brow lift surgery takes 1 to 2 hours and is performed under general anesthetic, so you won�t feel anything during your procedure. Most patients take at least 1 week off work but it takes about 2 weeks for swelling to subside. Dr. Buonassisi removes your stitches about 7 days after your surgery.You�ll see a change right away but it can take up to six months to see full results. How long does a direct incision brow lift last? You can enjoy the results for years to come, but the skin on the forehead will naturally sag with age.

Complementary Treatments to Enhance Your Direct Incision Brow Lift

Many patients choose a direct incision brow lift as part of a holistic facial rejuvenation plan. A brow lift is often combined with a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) or a facelift. Laser skin treatments, or medical microneedling will boost collagen production and improve the tone and texture of your skin, and are a great complement to your more youthful appearance after your brow lift.
