Brow Lift Surgery

Dr. Kristina Zakhary is trained in Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery and exclusively in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, performing Forehead/ Brow lift surgery on both men and women in Calgary, Alberta.

What is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift, also referred to as a forehead lift is a common cosmetic plastic surgery, and can have long lasting results for up to 10 years. Brow lifts are a common response to the effects of aging, which can be seen in the areas around the eyes and brow.

Brow lifts are most often performed on both men and women from ages 40 to 60 who are experiencing hooding of the upper eyelids and sagging and drooping of the brow.

As you age, your eyebrows may sag and droop. As a result of lowering of the eyebrows, it can worsen the appearance of hooded upper eyelids and deepen the wrinkles in your forehead area. Low eyebrows also tend to make you look a lot more aged and tired. Low brows and a wrinkled forehead are often corrected together with eyelid blepharoplasty surgery or a facelift operation.

Although the Brow lift surgery will not stop the aging process, it can reduce the signs of aging while smoothing the forehead and tightening the forehead muscles to reposition your eyebrows to a more desirable and youthful position.

Brow Lift Surgery Procedure

The Forehead lift incision is placed along the front of your hairline where it will be well hidden as it heals. The brow lift surgery involves lifting the forehead skin, tightening the muscles or weakening other muscles to reduce deep wrinkles in your forehead or in between your eyebrows. The eyebrows are raised to your desired position.

Dr. Zakhary will then close the incision very carefully with absorbable stitches that usually dissolve naturally over the 2 weeks after your surgery. The incisions heal very well and are hidden in your hairline. The recovery time from Brow lift surgery is typically between 2 to 3 weeks.

What our patients have to say

Dr. Kristina does faces only, so she was my choice. So, she lifted my brows and managed my older upper eyelids. I look ten years younger now, and people pay attention and compliment me all the time. I feel so confident in my looks now. All the staff here was nice and sweet, not to mention their qualifications. For me definitely Dr. Zakhary is number one facial surgeon! Give stars!
Dr Zakhary did an amazing job of my forehead lift, and upper eyelids . There was a lot to go over during consultation and preop appointment. She was very patient and reassured me we won't proceed with surgery unless I had all my questions answered. I am ecstatic with my result and don't even wanna look at my old pictures. Thank you for making my life so much more enjoyable.
I recommande Dr. Kristina Zakhary a 150%, i've had a brow lift and upper eyelid surgery. The scars are not visible. It as changed the way I feel about myself and gave me alot of confidence in myself also. She is so attentive and generous, the staff make you feel confortable. Go, dont wait, you'll know what i'm talking about.
Dr Kristina did my forehead lift and eyelid lift surgery two months ago and now she is treating my ski for anti aging. My friends and family have told me how fresh I look so I feel like my results are very natural. People have stopped asking me if I'm tired or angry, so I feel great about the results overall. I really like her because she seems invested in my good satisfaction. I am going to continue to use her as my plastic surgeon.
Great forehead and eyebrow lift. She went through every last detail to make sure I was comfortable. I look 15 years younger now and I just got a compliment on the street. I’ll definitely be coming back if I need anything else in the future.

Very happy to take the service from Dr. Kristina Zakhary. I went to her for the upliftment of my brows and she did it very efficiently. Also, it was not too expensive.

I had a brow lift done by Dr. Zakhary a couple years back and it still looks as sharp as a month after I got it. I had a lot of forehead and wrinkles at the time and I didn’t want to look like I was in my 60s yet. Dr. Zakhary sat down with me at consultation and we went through every possible scenario to resolve the issue. Very nice person to talk to! I did have some itchiness in my forehead but it went away after about a month. Thanks to that, I look 15 years younger!
Scarlett G
I had a fantastic experience with Dr.Zakhary on my forehead lift and upper eyelids. I enjoyed talking to her and felt really comfortable in her presence as she was very reassuring and polite. We did the surgery and it went very well as well as the recovery, that I was hoping would be over sooner. I love my new look and why I didn’t have my surgery earlier? Thank you for your fantastic job!

Dr. Zakhary is very professional, knowledgeable in her field and a fantastic doctor overall. Waiting for an appointment is well worth the wait! She's gone out of her way more than once and that is usually hard to find in a busy practitioner.
