Your eyes are a focal point when people are looking at you or communicating with you, and the areas above and near them can also prominently show signs of age and stress. Do people tell you that you look tired or sad when you are not?

Tired eyes and sad eyes can be from eyebrows that have fallen or have assumed a different shape. Also, frown lines in the forehead could be a factor in having someone appear stern or upset. Upper eyelid hooding can also result from fallen eyelid and eyebrow tissue. These conditions may lead to misunderstandings or misinterpretations of someone’s feelings. The forehead lift, or brow lift, can often address these issues and smooth out signs of age and stress.

If you would like to obtain additional information or to schedule a consultation for forehead lift (brow lift) with board-certified plastic surgeon Patrick K. Sullivan, MD, please contact us today.

Forehead Lift – Browlift

You can be certain that a huge priority of ours is to give your forehead, eyebrows and eyelids a rejuvenated appearance that looks natural. This is our specialty, and we have meticulously studied the artistic shapes of the eyebrows, the ideal appearance, and position. We have also published our findings and results in an effort to share this information and show how effective this treatment can be when done appropriately with a careful artistic eye and thorough knowledge of the anatomic details.

Both safety and effectiveness are both key to forehead and brow lifting, and we are happy to be able to perform the treatment with intravenous sedation as opposed to general anesthesia. This procedure can also be performed as an outpatient. Dr. Sullivan performs this procedure endoscopically, using tiny instruments and small incisions, making for a faster recovery process and virtually invisible scars that are hidden under the hairline. Dr. Sullivan will lift and smooth out the skin in the area of the forehead and brow for a smoother appearance. If you feel you have a “high forehead,” we can also lower the forehead height for an appearance more in keeping with how you want to look. Recovery from a forehead lift (brow lift) usually lasts about one to two weeks. Any discomfort during the recovery process can be alleviated with medication.

Dr. Patrick K. Sullivan can give you beautiful results and a less stressed, more youthful appearance with this effective procedure. To arrange your private consultation, or for additional information, please contact our plastic surgery practice for details.

Dr Sullivan And his staff are absolutely wonderful! Starting with the consultation the Dr and staff were professional,friendly and very knowledgeable and immediately put me at ease. The patient’s privacy and comfort was a priority and everything explained thoroughly . There were many followup calls and several postop visits all which were positive experiences. My surgery was a success and I was very happy with my results. I would encourage anyone interested in plastic surgery to choose Dr Sullivan- you will be in excellent hands. His surgery is a work of art.

We are also now seeing patients in the office again following all guidelines and taking every precaution possible to provide an incredibly safe environment for all patients and staff.

If you have any interest in summer surgery or services, please call us or contact us immediately so we can help you coordinate this before those spots become unavailable. Further, if you are seeking any services or surgery in 2020, we are anticipating an increase in price soon to deal with operating room fee increases.

We are here for any surgical or cosmetic questions you may have. Get in touch with us to see if there is any way we can help you.

We will continue to be here virtually for all those who prefer to have consultations in the comfort of their home.

Our online virtual consultations have been a very popular option for patients from as far away as Asia as well as usual coast to coast patients from New York to California, Oregon to Florida and many in New England.

Our virtual web consultations can be done right in the comfort of your own home, all you need is a secure internet connection and a computer, tablet or smartphone! We have 5 main steps we aim to accomplish with the virtual consultation:

  1. We listen to each patient carefully to establish exactly what it is they are looking for.
  2. We will give instructions to each patient on the specific pictures we will need from them as part of the virtual consultation. We send out sample pictures of just what we need, and the patient can send back their pictures that replicate this.
  3. We have chosen specific before and after photos of Dr Sullivan’s patients in order to show the patients what a prospective patient can expect (note, individual results will vary).
  4. We plan out and together come up with what we think is going to be a superb treatment plan for them.
  5. Finally, we find a time that is best for them that we can get this done.

We welcome you. Please come - we are open & here for you. If you would like to have a VIRTUAL CONSULTATION or an IN PERSON CONSULTATION or have any questions at all, please give us a call at 401-214-5121 or contact us via the website to set up your virtual consultation today!
