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.

“My results were above and beyond my expectation”

I was pleased with my first visit till my last! I went in for an eyelid surgery consultation in November and I really wanted the surgery be completed before 2017 since my insurance covered the procedure. The girls in his office were able to get everything approved quickly and I made it. My results were above and beyond my expectation. I look amazing and natural. Most people get a brow lift and Dr. Laquis said I would not need it was the best decision for me. He was correct!
