Brow Lift/ Forehead Lift for San Jose

Serving Mountain View & the Bay Area

Our beautiful plastic surgery center in Mountain View specializes in brow lift procedures. A brow lift can give our San Jose Bay Area patients a younger, rejuvenated look, taking years of aging off the face in one procedure.

A brow lift, also called a forehead lift or eyebrow lift, corrects the skin wrinkling and loss of tone that causes sagging of eyebrows and hooding of upper eyelids. A brow lift softens the deep creases across your forehead. It reduces horizontal frown lines at the top of your nose and vertical lines between your brows. The result is a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. It is the only procedure that can increase the distance from the lateral brow to the upper eyelashes. To set up a consultation for a brow lift Bay Area residents should contact our plastic surgery center conveniently located in Mountain View.

Brow Lift Candidacy

A brow lift can restore natural beauty and youthfulness to a face, but there are many things to consider before deciding on this procedure. To find out if you are a good candidate for a brow lift, call our plastic surgery center in Mountain View today. Our team of experienced professionals can guide you towards an informed decision.

A brow lift is often performed along with a facelift or other facial rejuvenation procedures. Some people have brow lifts to correct aging problems, while others have inherited traits that cause them to seek treatment in their 20s or 30s. You may be a good candidate for a brow lift if you have any of the following types of conditions:

  • If you have drooping lateral brows that are close to or below your orbital bony rim
  • If you feel you always look angry or scowling
  • If you like your appearance and your brows and eyelids when you pull up your forehead with your fingers at your hairline above your lateral brows
  • If you desire the ideal benefits of facial rejuvenation and you are already considering a face and neck lift

If you believe you could benefit from the facial rejuvenation effects of a brow lift, San Jose Bay Area residents can contact our plastic surgery center in nearby Mountain View.

Brow Lift Benefits

By slightly elevating the brows and smoothing surrounding lines and wrinkles, brow lift restores a pleasant, approachable appearance to the eyes. After brow lift, you may look years younger and much more rested.

Comparison to Other Procedures Targeting the Same Area

BOTOX® injections are another common way to lift drooping brows and create brighter-looking eyes. However, there are several limitations with BOTOX®: for example, the results only last three to six months on average, and treatment must be repeated regularly to maintain the effects. Also, BOTOX® is best for mild to moderate amounts of sagging. Very heavy or droopy brows will not respond as well to BOTOX® injections.

If your brows sag too low on your face, or the cost and inconvenience of repeat BOTOX® treatments has become too much to bear, Dr. Ereso is happy to discuss brow lift as an alternative. Request a consultation with him today.

Consultation with Dr. Ereso

A personal consultation is the first step. Dr. Ereso will assess your physical and emotional health and discuss your specific cosmetic goals for surgery.

You should arrive at the consultation prepared to provide complete information about:

  • Previous surgeries
  • Past and present medical conditions
  • Treatments you have received
  • Medications that you are taking, including nutritional supplements and herbal remedies

Preparation for Forehead Lift Surgery

You will receive a complete set of pre-operative instructions from Dr. Ereso in anticipation of your brow lift. These instructions will ask you to not smoke, drink a lot of alcohol or take blood-thinning medications for three or more weeks before surgery. Also, Dr. Ereso may request that you undergo a medical evaluation with your primary care physician prior to surgery. With a clean bill of health, you can focus on more practical preparations, such as setting up a recovery space at home and making other arrangements for transportation, child and pet care.

Brow Lift Procedure Details

Many patients are good candidates for an endoscopic brow lift. The endoscopic brow lift is a minimally invasive technique that requires several small incisions in the scalp behind the hairline. The endoscope, inserted through these incisions, allows our plastic surgeon to modify or remove parts of the muscles that cause wrinkling and frown lines. Your lateral brows will be suspended with internal sutures placed behind your hairline.

For people with heavy brows, significant brow asymmetry, and deep forehead frowning, our surgeon never hesitates to use the traditional coronal brow lift. Incisions are hidden well behind the frontal hairline.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of an endoscopic brow lift, San Jose Bay Area residents can call our world-renowned plastic surgery center in Mountain View.

Endoscopic Brow Lift Recovery/Results

After surgery, you will have temporary puffiness and discoloration that may involve your eyelid and cheek areas as well. You may experience numbness and itchiness of your scalp. You should be able to wash your hair in 3 days and be back to work within 7-10 days.

Our patients have been very pleased with their refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. Although complete healing may take some time, you can expect the end results to be worth the wait.

A number of factors, including your heredity and your lifestyle, play a role in how long the results of your brow lift will last. Even though the aging process continues, patients are usually very happy with their appearance for many, many years. Some patients find that they want to make additional improvements at a later time.


Like other facial plastic surgery procedures, brow lift risks include the following:

  • Infection
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Poor wound healing
  • Adverse reaction to anesthesia
  • Temporary or permanent changes in skin sensation
  • Overcorrection or under-correction
  • Facial nerve injury
  • Bad scarring

The first step toward managing the risks of brow lift is to select a board-certified plastic surgeon with plenty of experience in brow lift. Having performed many brow lift procedures over the course of his career, Dr. Ereso understands exactly how to reduce the likelihood of complications and how to address them if they occur. You can feel secure knowing that he works tirelessly to make brow lift safe and successful for his patients.

Complementary Cosmetic Procedures

Whether you choose to combine brow lift with another facial plastic surgery procedure depends on how your face has responded to the aging process. Other patients complement brow lift with a facelift to target tissue laxity, sagging and wrinkles in the middle and lower regions of the face. Another popular combination is brow lift with eyelid surgery to completely transform tired, sad-looking eyes.

Patient Reviews/Testimonials

“Dr. Ereso was one of the only plastic surgeons I interviewed who took the time to discuss the medical details of the procedure and draw out WHY he does things in a certain way. He explained various options and described the likely aesthetic outcome. I am very pleased with the results. In all follow up visits, he sees me on time and spends as much time as I need to respond to my questions.”

Brow Lift Costs/Financing

Dr. Ereso offers fair, competitive pricing for brow lift surgery. The exact cost of your treatment will depend on the surgical approach he recommends and whether you choose to combine brow lift with another procedure.

You have the option of paying for your surgery several different ways. Our office accepts plans through CareCredit, a reputable healthcare financing company. For more information about brow lift costs and financing, call or email us today.
