Brow Lift in Manhattan, NYC
If creases and wrinkles around your forehead are causing you concern or embarrassment, a brow lift by board-certified Manhattan plastic surgeon and general surgeon Richard W. Swift, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S. can help turn back the clock and give you a more youthful appearance.
What Is a Brow Lift ?
A brow lift is a procedure that uses incisions in carefully selected places so the skin can be lifted. It makes your face look years younger and reduces wrinkles that detract from your youthful appearance. Brow lifts, also known as forehead lifts, are helpful because as time goes by, your forehead is one of the most noticeable places that will begin to show signs of aging. You’ll start to see age lines that are a result of things such as years of stress and time in the sun.

You’ll find out what you can expect in your particular procedure when you have your consultation with Dr. Swift, who will give you more information on the procedure and how it works.
How is a Brow Lift Performed?
Dr. Swift will make an incision behind the hairline, extending between the ears and across the top of the forehead. If you have thinning hair or are bald, he will adjust the location of the incision as needed. Dr. Swift will then lift the forehead skin, remove excess tissue, and adjust the muscles in that area. He may also lift your eyebrows. After excising the excess skin, he will close the incisions with stitches or clips and bandage the area.
Dr. Swift may use an endoscopic approach for your brow lift. An endoscopic forehead lift includes a few short entry points known as incisions behind the hairline. Through these entry points, he will embed a tiny camera called an endoscope to help guide him as he conforms the muscles and underlying fat. Endoscopic surgery is less invasive than traditional open surgery.
Preparing for a Brow Lift
When you decide to have a brow lift, there are ways that you can prepare for the procedure. Things you may be asked to do include stopping the use of aspirin or products that have aspirin in them, along with herbal supplements, within the two weeks preceding surgery. These items may cause increased bleeding. You should also quit smoking several weeks before you have your brow lift done. This will help your body to recover more quickly following the procedure. It’s also a good idea to enlist someone to drive you to the surgery center and then bring you back home.
Brow Lift Recovery
After your brow lift, you’ll have regular follow-ups with Dr. Swift, who will assess your recovery and give the okay when you’re able to get back to your sports and workouts. In the area of the procedure, you’re likely to have some bruising and swelling. This may last for a few weeks, but it’s a normal part of the healing process. Within a couple of days of your procedure, you’ll be able to start washing your hair. You can usually go back to work within a week and a half.
Is a Brow Lift Right for Me?
If you’re a man who is between the ages of 40 and 60 years old and would like to reduce lines and wrinkles, a brow lift may be a good option for you. If you’re younger than 40 but have extensive wrinkling, Dr. Swift may opt to give you the procedure. Remember this procedure is about feeling better about yourself, not about impressing anyone else.
How Much Does a Brow Lift Cost?
Costs for your brow lift will vary depending on the extent of surgery or the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired result. Most insurance plans do not cover plastic surgery or specific cosmetic treatments. Dr. Swift accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well as Alphaeon Healthcare Lending as a financing option.
