With age, many women and men develop drooping or heavy eyebrows and deep forehead lines. These can cause an undesirable angry or fatigued appearance. Dr. Konstantin Vasyukevich performs browlift surgery in Manhattan for NYC patients who want to regain their youthful eyebrow contour and position. It can also help to smooth out deep creases across the forehead and get rid of the excessive fullness and droopy skin over the upper eyelids.

How the Brow Ages

A youthful and attractive brow provides a natural “frame” for the eyes, enhancing and supporting their natural beauty. An ideal brow position can vary greatly between different people and is determined primarily by mimetic muscle activity and the strength of the ligament support system. There are differences for women and men:

  • In women, the brow is generally higher than in men. It curves gently upward, extending from the inner part of the orbital rim to the area of the temple.
  • In men, the brow is generally heavier, positioned slightly lower, and straighter in shape.

Aging of the brows leads to the loss of their youthful contour. As the forces of gravity cause the brow to fall to a lower position, the whole aesthetic of the upper face is adversely affected. The descent of the brow makes the eyes appear smaller and often imparts a tired look to a face. When the aging process causes a lowering of the inner part of the brow, a person might be perceived as angry or excessively stern. When the outside part of the brow descends, a person may look sad or worried.

In addition, as the brows descend and lose their youthful position, excessive fullness and sagginess of the upper eyelid skin might develop. This heaviness might further contribute to an aged and tired eyelid appearance. Furthermore, the excess of skin and tissue fullness leads to the sensation of heaviness of the upper eyelids, which causes many people to begin elevating their brows with forehead muscles. This excessive activity of the forehead mimetic muscles leads to the formation of deep creases across the forehead, which further contributes to the appearance of age.

How Much Does a Browlift Cost in NYC?

The cost of an endoscopic browlift in Manhattan, NYC, performed by Dr. Konstantin is typically about $12,000. Because a browlift, like all cosmetic plastic surgery, is customized to meet the specific needs of each patient, it’s not possible to provide a specific price for your surgery without first meeting you in a consultation. The cost of a browlift depends on several factors—primarily the extent of the procedure needed for your desired result. If you decide to have other procedures performed during the same operation, that may lead to a final price outside this range, as well.

Modern Rejuvenation Techniques

The choice of browlift technique primarily depends on the degree of brow descent and individual variations in eyelid and forehead aging. The primary goal of brow rejuvenation is the restoration of the brow contour and elevation of the brow to its youthful position.

Dr. Konstantin can use a number of techniques to improve the contour and position of the brow. Below are some of his most commonly used methods.

Direct Browlift

In the past, the preferred method of brow rejuvenation involved making a long incision around the head and pulling the brows upward while removing a strip of skin. This method involved a significant amount of surgery and required a longer recovery time. Today, direct browlifts are rarely used for cosmetic brow rejuvenation as several other less invasive techniques have been developed.

Endoscopic Browlift

Dr. Konstantin performs most browlifts today with the aid of a small camera called an endoscope. He inserts the camera through a small incision within the hair-bearing part of the scalp. The endoscope aids with visualization of the brow-supporting structures and enables a significantly less invasive surgery.

After releasing the underlying tissue, Dr. Konstantin elevates the brows to the desired position and fixes them in place. This procedure can be performed without general anesthesia, and the recovery is far shorter than with a direct browlift.

Transblepharoplasty Browlift

This procedure is usually performed in conjunction with the removal of excess skin of the upper eyelid during blepharoplasty. In order to elevate the brow and strengthen its support system, the sutures are placed under the brow through a small incision that can be hidden in a crease of the upper eyelid. This procedure is far less invasive than other surgical methods of brow rejuvenation and is most appropriate when a subtle elevation is desired.

What To Expect From Browlift Recovery

Because most browlift procedures performed by Dr. Konstantin are minimally invasive, browlift surgery doesn’t require significant recuperation. Typically, most browlift patients can return to work and other social engagements within 1 week. This time frame could be shorter if only an endoscopic procedure was performed. At this point, the most significant bruising and swelling will be behind you.

Browlift FAQs

What is a nonsurgical browlift?

A nonsurgical browlift can improve the contour of the brow, elevate the eyebrows, and rejuvenate the area around the eyes. Nonsurgical brow rejuvenation is accomplished with the strategic use of neuromodulators such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA.

BOTOX and its counterparts Dysport® and XEOMIN®are commonly used to elevate the brow and improve its contour by modifying the effect of mimetic muscles in the area. In addition to neuromodulators, some degree of elevation can also be accomplished with the use of fillers. Both injections of temporary fillers or much longer-lasting techniques, such as fat grafting, could be used to counteract the loss of volume in the area of the upper eyelids, brow, and temple. Restoring volume in the brow area can help improve its contour and aid in brow elevation.


When is the best age to undergo a browlift?

There is no magic age when browlift surgery becomes universally necessary. Instead, the best time to undergo browlift surgery is when you feel it’s necessary. Some people have a naturally heavy brow that is present from a young age. Others see brow sagging begin to appear as the result of aging. For this reason, Dr. Konstantin sees browlift patients of many different ages.


How long will my browlift results last?

Although no facial plastic surgery procedure creates truly permanent results, the changes can be quite long-lasting—especially when performed by an experienced facial plastic surgeon. Dr. Konstantin’s browlift patients typically enjoy their results for up to a decade before the signs of aging are noticeable again. Think of facial aging as a clock. Surgery does not stop the clock, but it can turn it back several years.
