Things Are Looking Up!
Westport | Fairfield CT
If you’ve begun to notice forehead frown lines or drooping eyebrows, consider a brow lift from Westport and Fairfield, Connecticut-area plastic surgeon Dr. Ellen Mahony. You’ll be surprised at how even subtle changes in your forehead and brow area can produce dramatic results, in the form of a younger, smoother look.
Wake Up to the Benefits of a Brow Lift
Dr. Mahony makes a brow lift simple and convenient for you. In a minimally invasive outpatient procedure at her practice, she will smooth the skin across your forehead, then reposition your brows to a more youthful and natural position.
For women, Dr. Mahony can soften the forehead, raise sagging eyebrows, and restore the natural arch above the eyes. For men, she can elevate the brows and correct any overhang, while maintaining a natural, masculine look.
What is a Brow Lift, Exactly?
Do you have questions about forehead and brow lifts? For example, some people wonder about an unnatural, “pulled” appearance after surgery. Others are confused between a brow lift (also known as a forehead lift), which lifts and repositions the skin surgically vs. neurotoxins, which soften and reduce forehead lines. Dr. Mahony is here to answer all your questions. Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, she combines the compassion to get to know you and understand your concerns…the training to give your surgical experience a personal touch…and the surgical skill to provide you with a naturally enhanced look.*
Your Brow Lift with Complementary Treatments
In addition, Dr. Mahony recommends that you prep your skin for any facial surgery with one of her Platelet-Rich Plasma procedures to stimulate collagen production, increase blood flow and repair elastin fibers in deep layers of your skin.

ASK DR. MAHONY
Although a brow lift may be the answer, I would really like to see you before making that suggestion! Keep in mind that although aging lax skin will impact on the position of the eyebrows, the muscle action will as well. We all develop ‘habits’ in how we move our foreheads, eyebrows and mouth. You probably have noticed people who always seem to have their brow raised, right? Well, sometimes we also favor one side more than the other, contributing to an asymmetric look. The key word is ‘look’ because the look is not necessarily permanent, it may be due to uneven muscle action. So, the first thing to consider is a little bit of a neurotoxin (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) and see if that corrects the asymmetry!
Any procedure that raises the position of the eyebrows (not eyelids) can be considered a brow lift. Ideally, our eyebrows sit above the rim of bone above our eyes. With aging, the forehead skin becomes lax and the position of the eyebrows drops and they sit lower. Sometimes it even seems as though the lowered position is crowding the eye space. A variety of incisions and techniques are available to tighten the forehead skin and raise the position of the eyebrows. Incisions for this procedure include those within the hair, at the hairline or directly over the eyebrow.
In comparison, an upper eyelid lift is for removing the excess upper eyelid skin folds and sometimes a small amount of protruding fat. This involves the upper eyelid skin only, not the eyebrow.
