Young woman with closed eyes

The first sign of aging is the descent of the brow. An ideal brow position for a man is straight, giving them a more squared-off forehead and hooded eyes. The lateral brow should be positioned above the eyesocket on females, and directly over the eye bone on males. This placement creates an open, airy, awake and youthful appearance.

Various ways can be used to lift or correct the brow. By relaxing the muscle that lowers the brow, Botox® can be used to elevate the brows in mild cases of brow sagging. Alternatives to surgery include radiofrequency called Thermage and ultrasound, sometimes called Ultherapy.

Both open and endoscopic procedures are generally available. A scalp incision is made from one ear to the other ear and excess scalp tissue is removed to elevate the brow. There is the possibility that this approach alters the hairline and leaves permanent scarring in the open treatment.

A Better Option

Plastic surgeons prefer endoscopic browlifts for their minimally invasive approach. Endoscopic browlifts use much shorter incisions to lift the brow. Hairlines will not be distorted by endoscopic browlifts, and scars will be small. These minimally invasive procedures are done in the office setting and are a very safe alternative. They require less downtime and quicker recovery and results. If you want to avoid the complications of a more open, traditional browlift surgery, this is a great option for you.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
