Reconstructive Brow Lift in Washington DC

Also Serving Mclean, Alexandria, Loudoun County and Arlington


Reconstructive brow lift is a procedure focused on restoring eyebrow and forehead symmetry. Dr. Rad commonly performs reconstructive brow lift to restore normal eyebrow and forehead position and symmetry. It should be performed in an operating room under anesthesia. A very safe procedure, reconstructive brow lift offers permanent results and recovery is about 2 weeks.

Procedure Cost


The cost of reconstructive brow lift is $8,500 – $15,000 depending on the complexity of the reconstruction and the number of procedures performed simultaneously (i.e. forehead shortening, brow lift, frown line reduction, forehead line smoothing, etc.). While total cost increases with multiple procedures, surgery is cost-effective when combined. Cost is a reflection of the skill and experience required to obtain excellent results. Under Dr. Rad’s care your experience is guaranteed to be the highest quality.


The eyebrow frames the eye and, if it droops, can give a fatigued appearance. Dr. Rad uses 3 techniques for mild, moderate or significant brow elevation, and he tailors the surgery to each patient’s needs.

Reconstructive Brow Lift Q+A

Dr. Rad first assesses your forehead, hairline and eyebrow anatomy. Together with Dr. Rad, you will determine the exact placement of your hairline in order to optimize brow, forehead aesthetics and overall facial proportion. While you are standing upright with your forehead relaxed Dr. Rad takes precise measurements and makes markings while double checking to ensure symmetry. Dr. Rad plans his incision placement with the aesthetic vision in mind. Sometimes other procedures, such as facial fat transfer, facelift, neck lift, and blepharoplasty are needed to create a balanced overall result. During surgery Dr. Rad makes meticulous adjustments measured in millimeters to ensure optimal results.

Reconstructive brow lift is very safe. The most common complications that can occur are slight asymmetries, visible scar and numbness. Dr. Rad is extremely meticulous in surgery and the chance of these problems occurring is extremely low. Patients who have had suboptimal results from other surgeons often seek Dr. Rad’s experience for corrective work.

What Patients Are Saying

We consulted with three plastic surgeons before choosing Dr. Rad for my 17 year old son’s rhinoplasty and chin implant in March 2017. From the first meeting, we felt confident that Dr. Rad is a skilled, experienced and talented surgeon who pays attention to every detail. He is also a super guy – warm, caring, attentive and welcoming. Everything went smoothly and we are extremely happy with the results. We are very pleased with the whole experience and recommend him without hesitation.
