Brow Lift

GRACEFULLY EMBRACE THE NATURAL AGING PROCESS AND FEEL GREAT ABOUT YOUR APPEARANCE.

A brow lift is a surgical procedure that involves careful consideration of the face, eyes, eyelids, tear troughs, forehead and the symmetry of the face. There are many factors that affect the aging process of the brows and forehead, including sun damage, facial expression, gravity, and genetics.

A brow lift can improve the appearance of the eyes and forehead, particularly a downward expression, frown lines, or forehead creases. People often feel that their eyes look “closed in” and they want everything to me more “opened up”. There are other surgical techniques that may be considered with a brow lift, including facelift, eyelid or blepharoplasty, temple lift, laser skin rejuvenation, and facial injectables, which can also significantly improve the expression of the face. Dr Shortt will discuss these facial cosmetic surgery techniques during your consultation and go over the pros and cons of the different procedures to help you best meet your goals.

Dr Shortt will go over your options, so you feel that your surgery is specifically planned for you.

When to consider having this procedure?

Candidates for brow lift surgery, which may accompany other surgical procedures for facial rejuvenation or a facelift, are generally aged 50 – 70+ years, are in good health and are able to have general anaesthetic, and may have one or more of the following characteristics:

N

desire to improve the expression of the face and decrease the appearance of frown lines or forehead creases

N

brow lift surgery to accompany other surgical procedures such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or face lift surgery

N

desire a more youthful appearance by lifting the brow and “opening” up the eye area

N

are planning to have other facial rejuvenation surgery already

N

self conscious of facial appearance due to sun damage, chronic facial expression, gravity or genetics

What is the recovery time?

In general, the recovery time following brow lift surgery is approximately 2-4 weeks. As with any surgery under general anaesthetic, there are potential risks or complications to consider. During your private consultation, Dr Shortt will take a thorough medical history from you, discuss your surgical options or surgery that may compliment your brow lift surgery, explain the complete procedure and potential risks, what to expect pre and post surgery and your estimated recovery time.

I recently received breast augmentation and am extremely happy with the results

I recently received breast augmentation and am extremely happy with the results! Dr. Shortt and his staff are wonderful and very talented. I definitely recommend this surgeon to anyone who is interested in cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Shortt is a very talented and compassionate doctor

Dr. Shortt is a very talented and compassionate doctor. He takes the time to listen to your concerns, and he lets you know what’s possible and what isn’t – he will never do something that will make you look fake or “done.” Dr. Shortt likes to say that he will make you into a better version of yourself, not someone else. He goes above and beyond to achieve your goals and truly cares about his patients.

I had a septorhinoplasty done to correct my breathing and the appearance of my nose. I have always been insecure about the size and shape of my nose – I had a bit of a bulbous tip and a prominent dorsal hump. I am so thrilled with the results of my surgery! In addition to breathing better, I am also feeling a lot more confident. I used to freak out if anyone took a photo of me from the side, but now I actually encourage it!

The support staff at Briarwood are wonderful, too. They make the experience comfortable and easy.

I am extremely happy that I finally took this step

I just want to say Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job on my tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). I am very pleased! The care I received prior to, during, and after my surgery has been great. Dr. Shortt and the stuff at Briarwood cosmetic surgical centre have been very thorough and detail oriented when tending to my needs, concerns and questions. I am extremely happy that I finally took this step and LOVE my results. I wouldn’t have changed a thing and am glad I chose Dr. Shortt for my surgery.

Dr Shortt did an awesome job

I recently had a breast reduction and am so happy with the final result – Dr Shortt did an awesome job!

Dr Roger Shortt is a Genius, I am so happy with the result

I recently had a scar revision surgery to repair scars from a bilateral mastectomy. Dr Roger Shortt is a Genius, I am so happy with the result it is more than I could have hoped for. I am so grateful to Dr Shortt for his empathy kindness and professionalism. His staff reflected that image and were helpful, knowledgeable and efficient. Even though I had a bilateral I feel very happy when I see myself in the mirror. That says everything.

Best Choice I Made!

The stretch marks, loose skin and a deformed belly button from my twin pregnancy really affected my self confidence. Dr. Shortt helped me get that “old me” feeling back! He is patient, professional and truly cares for you during the recovery process. I always felt that Dr. Shortt and his team were there when I needed questions answered. Before I went for my surgery, I had no idea how important the weeks and months after would be. Now, I couldn’t be happier that I chose Dr. Shortt to be my doctor. He also makes sure that you know what to expect and that made the journey so much easier for me. Best choice I made! I finally feel like myself again.

Extremely pleased to share my recent experience with Dr. Shortt

Extremely pleased to share my recent experience with Dr. Shortt and his professional staff. The entire experience was more than I had hoped it would be.
