The effects of aging are inevitable, and often, the brow and forehead areas show the first signs. The sun and other environmental factors, combined with gravity and time, result in frown lines, wrinkling across the forehead, and an increasing heaviness of the eyebrows and upper eyelids. This heaviness may create an angry or sad appearance that does not reflect how you feel on the inside. A brow lift in West Des Moines at Koch & Carlisle Plastic Surgery & Spa can help women and men from Ankeny, Ames, Davenport, and surrounding areas restore a smoother brow and a more youthful expression.
Dr. Brent Koch and Dr. Cody Koch can help you achieve a more refreshed appearance with a brow lift. As board-certified facial plastic surgeons, they have extensive training and more than 45 years of experience in facial procedures.
If you are considering brow lift surgery, our doctors can provide answers to your questions. Please request a consultation or call our office at (515) 277-5555. We look forward to meeting you to discuss how you can achieve your cosmetic desires.

About Brow Lift
A brow lift is a proven procedure that safely and effectively:
- Elevates drooping brows
- Smoothes horizontal lines and furrows of the forehead
- Restores a calm, youthful appearance to the upper face
Although most patients undergoing brow lifts are between the ages of 40 and 60, the procedure can be performed at any age if the person is in good health. Your doctor will meet with you for a consultation before your procedure to determine if you are a good candidate for brow lift.

Brow Lift Procedure
A brow lift involves tightening loose skin and removing any excess. As a result, forehead wrinkling and drooping brows are corrected. If necessary, your surgeon will alter the muscle that causes vertical lines between the brows. Repositioning forehead skin may be necessary to achieve the optimal improvement in brow lift surgery, attracting attention to opened, more inviting eyes. New techniques include using lighted scopes placed through small, well-hidden incisions within your hairline. This leads to less swelling and bruising, making your recovery time much quicker.
Most brow lift procedures are performed in an outpatient surgery center. The brow lift procedure itself typically takes between 1 to 2 hours to complete, and is most commonly performed with general anesthesia.
Many of our brow lift patients report that they experience minimal discomfort after their procedure, however, this can be controlled with prescribed medication. Most are able to return to work after 7 to 10 days, and resume strenuous activities after about a month.
The nominal consultation fee covers an extensive, personal consultation with either Dr. Brent Koch or Dr. Cody Koch. Your doctor will spend a great deal of time with you, discussing your goals, concerns, and physical and lifestyle considerations. He will listen intently to what you have to say, and together the two of you will develop the best approach to your treatment. Women and men who schedule their surgery at the time of consultation will have their consultation fee applied toward their procedure.
