What is a Brow Lift?
Brow lift surgery (sometimes called browplasty or a forehead lift) is a popular aesthetic treatment that helps create a higher brow appearance, which offers a younger look to the upper area of the face. A drooping brow can often cause an angry or tired appearance. A brow lift surgically corrects a drooping brow and provides a refreshed face by eliminating excess skin from the forehead and lifting the eyebrows. Dr. Raj TerKonda is a cosmetic facial surgeon in Denver, CO who has completed brow lifts on hundreds of patients, giving them a more youthful look. Dermal fillers and BOTOX® are commonly used along with brow lift surgery at Cherry Creek Face and Skin for ideal results, producing a smoother and softer appearance.
"Thank you Dr. Terkonda! I went in for a chin implant because I inherited my mothers weak chin. Dr. Terkonda and I had a good discussion about the symmetry of my face specifically that I have a round face and the result I was looking for was a more angular masculine jaw line. He explained the difference between a chin implant and genioplasty.He explained how genioplasty would actually pull the muscles attached to the bone in my chin forward and give my face a slightly more angular look. Because of my round face he also performed lipo under my chin and buccal fat removal. It’s been 6 weeks and I am extremely pleased with the results. The recovery was just as he explained, I was out of work only a couple of days and the majority of the swelling was gone in 10 days."- R. / Healthgrades / Jun 18, 2021

Where as I could not breath before because the side of my nose had been crushed from an assault, I can breath well now! Insurance I used at the time was Blue Cross.Dr Terkonda has a great bedside manner, and really cared about me and my outcome. His surgical skills were awesome performing a septoplasty, turbinate reductions, in addition to other items in the same visit. Make sure to consult with this doctor if you need help with your nose and sinuses for breathing, have suffered traumatic injury, or would like cosmetic surgery.

How is a brow lift performed?
When you grow older, skin laxity diminishes and causes various aspects of the face to sag. This is particularly critical in the upper face region. A drooping brow can make your expression appear tired or angry, and a surgical brow lift at Cherry Creek Face and Skin may help create a lifted, more youthful upper face. A brow lift is typically performed under general anesthesia. The incision used in a brow lift is chosen, depending on the severity of sag, if the forehead is addressed, and the position of the hairline. Recovery following a brow lift varies in each patient, depending on where and how the incision was made. Overall, patients feel slight swelling and bruising in the upper portion of the face near the eyebrows and possibly around the eyes. Cold compresses may help to diminish the inflammation. Our team advises patients to sleep upright for the first several nights after their brow lift. The typical recovery period from this procedure is around 2 – 3 weeks. The results can often be seen immediately, resulting in a refreshed appearance that looks softer, more alert, and with a noticeable reduction in fine lines and sagging in the upper face.
