Las Vegas plastic surgeon, Dr. Marvin Spann, creates natural results for patients seeking a Brow Lift. This facial surgery can correct droopy, sagging eyebrows by elevating them to give the face a more alert, awake appearance. This procedure is sometimes confused with a Forehead Lift. Both surgeries produce similar results, but they use different incision techniques. A brow lift places the incision either directly above the eyebrow (direct brow lift), or in the middle to lower section of the forehead. A Forehead Lift places the incision along the hairline, which lifts the forehead and elevates the eyebrows to a higher position. Each method will be discussed in detail during your initial consultation with Dr. Marvin Spann. We look forward to seeing you!
"I could not be more pleased with my results. I would recommend Dr. Spann without hesitation."- Anonymous / Other / Apr 03, 2020
"While it is true that I did not leave the office 40 years younger, any thinner and/or smarter, (I really was not actually expecting any magical transformation), it was great. So when I was seen on time, treated well, given excellent consultation and no one made fun of my big big silly sun hat, I began to think I must be loosing my touch at being an insufferable windbag of a patient. Well at least they are giving me the chance to try again at my next visit. Thanks for that."- W.M. / Google / Feb 26, 2020

She has saved my life literally on several occasions from skin cancer. I adore her and so will you!"- K.M. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2020

"I can not say enough about both Dr. Marvin Spann and Dr. Candace Spann. Let's start with Dr. M., I met him 24 hours before my bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction surgery. I don't care for male Dr.'s, will go out of my way not to see them, but when cancers involved, you don't always have a choice. Honestly I'm grateful that he ended up on my side, months of visits, 2 surgeries and I got a beautiful pair of foobs. As far as him blowing off infections, haha I developed one and had more added appointments than I wanted. Now to Dr. C, I originally made an appointment to get my skin checked, and while there she pointed out 3 things, one of which was flared up thanks to one of my medications. I had been suffering for months, my skin and I thank her. Then I went back for Botox and filler, best choice I've made. My husband also sees Dr. C. He had a spot she didn't like, she cut it out and his back looks just fine. I always say there's a reason for everything, so for me cancer added 2 amazing doctors that actually care to my side, and in Vegas that's hard to find."- J.G. / Yelp / Feb 10, 2020
There are several techniques that can be considered during a Brow Lift procedure. Some of the approaches are interchangeable with a Forehead Lift, but may be used to achieve different objectives.
Also known as a direct Brow Lift, this approach places the incision in the natural crease of the upper eyelid. Depending on the structure of the brow, an incision can also be made at the brow hairline to complete this process. Weak and sagging skin and tissue will be lifted and reattached to the brow bone. This approach does not affect the forehead and works to treat a sagging eyebrow and eyelid.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
This approach provides a subtle change in the position of the eyebrows. It uses several small (1-inch or smaller) incisions near the hairline of the forehead where an endoscope (specialized camera) is placed, and surgical tools are used to elevate the eyebrows. The stitches are located inside the incision to help minimize scarring. While this technique is a common approach, sometimes the results can be unpredictable.
Coronal Brow Lift
This approach places the incision lines several inches above the hairline of the head. These incisions are typically long, yet still hidden by the patient’s hair. This technique repositions the eyebrows by pulling them up to offer an alert and revitalized appearance. Sometimes hair will need to be removed during the incision closure process where the skin is reattached. This particular approach does offer dramatic results and in most cases actually repositions the hairline higher.
All Brow Lifts are performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure in an accredited surgical facility. The surgery typically takes around 2 hours to complete depending on the approach. Patients can generally return to work and resume normal activities within a few days following surgery. Patients may feel that their new facial structure is not as symmetrical as it should be, nor how they anticipated. This is a common anxiety. Facial features will settle and take on a natural look within a few weeks. It may take several months for the optimal surgical results to take effect.
Each Brow Lift surgery is tailored according to how subtle or dramatic patients desire their results to be. Most patients can expect to pay between $6,000-$8,000 for this procedure.

Brow Lift or Facelift?
This will be discussed in detail during your initial consultation. Many times, the effects of aging take place in the forehead region alone. If wrinkles, loose skin and sagging eyebrows exist on the forehead, then a Brow Lift or Forehead Lift may be sufficient. For drooping jowls and wrinkles along the lower area of the face, then another procedure such as a full Facelift may be worth consideration. Sometimes these procedures can be combined for maximum results.
Will I Look Fake?
While a Brow Lift produces results that allow patients to appear more awake and alert, the results are often subtle. An experienced surgeon will work within the confines of a patient’s facial structure and skin tone to create natural results that avoid a wide-eyed or hyper-alert appearance.
Can I Just use BOTOX?
No, not necessarily. BOTOX is a great non-surgical option that can improve the wrinkles and fine lines of the forehead. However, it will not lift the forehead and improve sagging and drooping features if they exist. Patients who are contemplating surgery may want to try BOTOX first and see if the results satisfy their aesthetic goals. If BOTOX proves ineffective, then a Brow Lift will probably help in this area.
The incisions made during a Brow Lift procedure are usually well-concealed once they heal. Whether they are placed in the hairline or brow line, every effort is made to keep the incisions along natural folds and hairlines so they are not visible after surgery.
