Brow Ptosis Fort Myers

Conveniently located to serve Fort Myers, Naples, and Bonita Springs

Brow ptosis in Fort Myers is a condition that occurs when your eyebrows sag lower than normal and lose their natural shape. When the brow droops, it crowds more skin over the upper eyelids and exaggerates the hooding and crow’s feet at the outer corner of the eyes. This can make you appear sad, tired, or angry. One of the most common treatments for this issue is a brow lift, which elevates drooping eyebrows and eliminates wrinkles to give you a younger and fresher look.

The Brow Lift

The brow lift is the most common procedure used to treat brow ptosis. It is also known as browplasty or a forehead lift. A brow lift elevates drooping eyebrows and removes the deep worry lines on the forehead.

The procedure is often combined with eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, which helps to reduce sagging skin on the upper eyelids that block your field of vision.

Dr. Stephen Laquis, an acclaimed ophthalmic plastic, and reconstructive surgeon can achieve natural-looking results for clients in Fort Myers.

The Procedure

There are many brow lift methods that can be performed based on the needs of each individual patient. With a traditional brow lift, an incision is made across the hairline (either at or behind the hairline). The internal tissues are then tightened to raise the eyebrows and smooth out the skin of the forehead. Finally, the incision is closed with the help of sutures.


After your brow lift to resolve brow ptosis, you will need to heal and recover. The recovery process will involve dealing with a degree of swelling and bruising in the region. Ice packs can help to ameliorate these issues. Time off from work will be required. It will be necessary to avoid physically strenuous activities like sports and heavy exercise since these can negatively affect the healing process.

Brow Lift Cost

The cost of a forehead lift procedure varies from case to case. The exact price of your brow lift will depend on the techniques employed, the anesthesia administered, the time required to perform the procedure, and many other factors.

Dr. Laquis is one of those doctors that will take the time to listen to your concerns and not make you feel rushed. His attention to detail sets him apart from other surgeons. I’m 100% happy with my results and so grateful I found him!! During season he books quite far out but trust me, it’s worth the wait! ;))
