Do you want the effect of a brow lift with fewer incisions?

A Mini Brow lift, sometimes known as a Lateral or Temporal Lift, from Dr. Kate O’Connor may be exactly what you need to improve your appearance. A mini-brow lift in Nashville can raise sagging brows and make you look younger and more alert.

Depending on what you want to be corrected, a Mini Brow lift, which is an easier procedure than the traditional brow lift, can be the solution. You may also hear the term “ponytail lift” to describe this type of brow lift, as similar to a tight ponytail, it pulls the skin of the forehead and brows upward. These are not your typical brow and upper facelifts. The results are much more natural and longer-lasting.

What is a Mini Brow Lift?

Nashville Brow Lift

A Mini Brow lift is one of the procedures that lift the eyebrows. Over time, the soft tissues that cover the area above our eyes tend to droop. Heredity and the condition of your skin play a part as well. The outer one-third of the brow is the first part of the brow to droop as we age.

This can cause a heaviness to the upper eyelid. A mini brow lift can raise the eyebrows and sometimes even reduce the frown lines as well as the crow’s feet at the outer edge of your eyes. It is a less extensive technique than the usual brow lift and affects that first sagging section of the brow. The mini brow lift results in a more youthful natural improvement, which is often significant and has less risk and a shorter recovery time. As one of the few female plastic surgeon's in Nashville, Dr. Kate O'Connor strives to offer the best mini brow lift Nashville has to offer.

Shortly after having a Mini Brow lift in Nashville with Dr. O’Connor, you will notice that you have a rejuvenated and vibrant appearance. The procedure has a shorter recovery time and has fewer risks. The incisions are made behind the hairline so are not obvious after healing. It is not considered major surgery. It can also be customized to tighten up the looseness under the lower eyelids and at the corner of the eye.

What Happens During a Mini Brow Lift Procedure?

Dr. O’Connor will first spend time listening to what you hope to achieve with a mini brow lift. She will evaluate your overall health, discuss your options, and what to expect from the procedure.

She will analyze your skin texture and elasticity. She will find out about your diet, supplements, and medications you are taking. She will outline the expected recovery process. There are additional procedures that might be a better fit for your needs including a traditional brow lift and blepharoplasty (or eyelid lift). Dr. O’Connor will help you determine which procedure is right for you.

During a mini brow lift, you will most likely be given local anesthesia. Dr. O’ Connor will discuss any concerns you have and what you would prefer. The procedure usually takes under an hour. Incisions are made at your temples behind your hairline and the surgery is performed beneath the skin and this tissue is lifted and repositioned. There is no pulling or stretching of the skin. This procedure can be combined with eyelid surgery if needed. In a mini brow lift, only the sides of the face and forehead are affected. Dr. O’Connor’s technique is accomplished by going under the muscle to create longer-lasting, more comprehensive results.
