Forehead and Brow Lifts

Forehead Brow Lifts

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a cosmetic procedure that can help to achieve a more youthful appearance. The brow lift works by correcting drooping brows and smoothing out wrinkles in the forehead region. This can help to create a more open and alert look. In addition, the browlift can also help to improve vision by lifting the brows out of the way of the upper eyelids.

The Best Candidates for Brow Lifts


Droopy brows


Deep forehead wrinkles


Heavy upper lids

As we age, the skin on our forehead can begin to sag, causing us to develop wrinkles and a “hooded” appearance. brow lifts are a surgical procedure that can help address this issue. The best candidates for brow lifts are those who have drooping or sagging brows, deep wrinkles in the forehead, or hooded eyelids. The procedure can help to create a more youthful appearance by reducing wrinkles and lifting brows.

The surgery is typically performed on an outpatient basis, and most people are able to return to their normal activities within a week. If you are considering a brow lift, consult a plastic surgeon who can help you determine if the procedure is right for you.

Botox can be a non-surgical option to address frown lines and other wrinkles in the forehead. Additionally, forehead reduction can be considered for patients who want to lower their hairline and balance their facial proportions.

Different Methods for Brow Lift

There are several different techniques that can be used, and the best approach for each patient depends on their individual needs and goals. However, all browlift procedures share the same goal of achieving a more youthful appearance. Following are some of the most popular methods:

Classic Lift


Classic Lift

This procedure involves making an incision across the brow, which allows the surgeon to remove excess skin and tissue. The brow is then lifted into a new position and held in place with stitches or surgical tape. In addition, this type of browlift can help  improve visibility by opening up the brow area. For these reasons, the classic browlift continues to be a popular choice for patients seeking rejuvenation of the brow and forehead region.

Endoscopic lift


Endoscopic lift

An endoscopic lift involves making small incisions in the scalp and then inserting a tiny camera, called an endoscope, into the incision. The doctor can then view the internal structures of the face and make any necessary adjustments. This type of browlift has several benefits over traditional browlifts. First, it is less invasive, so there is less risk of complications. Second, it provides a more precise browlift. Additionally, an endoscopic lift typically requires less recovery time than a traditional brow lift.

Temporal lift


Temporal lift

This brow lift method involves incisions along the hairline at the temples, allowing access to the forehead muscles. The surgeon then repositions or removes the muscles as needed to achieve a more youthful appearance. Temporal browlifts can be very effective in reducing wrinkles and brow drooping, and they often result in a more natural-looking outcome than other browlift methods.

Benefits of Brow Lifts

The main goal of a brow lift is to change the appearance of your brows by restoring a more youthful position to the eyebrows. In addition, a brow lift can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the forehead region. As a result, patients who undergo this procedure often report feeling much more confident and self-assured.

A Brow Lift works best for:


Balanced brows


Minimizing wrinkles and fine lines


Removing excessive skin


Improving sagging skin

Risks Involved in Brow Lift

Like every other procedure, browlift involves some risks too. Although not fatal or serious, minor risks can include bruising or swelling that lasts longer than expected, longer recovery time, poor healing of scars, discomfort around the incision areas, or numbness of the forehead.

A brow lift poses risks, including:


Possible scarring


Changes in skin sensation


Asymmetry in brow position

This process can help to eliminate any horizontal forehead wrinkles and frown lines that may have been caused by age, stress, or other factors.

While it’s important to remember that individual results may vary, most patients can expect the effects of a forehead lift to last around 5-10 years. Factors such as age, skin type, and lifestyle habits can all influence the longevity of the procedure.

No, a brow lift does not increase the size of your forehead. Instead, the procedure focuses on elevating the position of the eyebrows and smoothing out forehead wrinkles and lines.

While both surgeries target the forehead area, the intention and technique behind each one varies. A brow lift, also known as a browplasty, focuses on lifting the brow line to create a more youthful appearance and address sagging skin. In contrast, a forehead lift primarily aims to smooth out wrinkles and creases on the forehead.

If you have deep wrinkles across your forehead, sagging eyebrows, or a furrowed brow that makes you look angry or tired, a brow lift may be a good option.

While the swelling can vary from person to person, most patients experience swelling for the first few days after the procedure. It is normal and part of the body’s natural healing process.

Unfortunately, in most cases, brow lift surgery is classified as an elective cosmetic procedure, which means that insurance will not cover the costs. However, insurance may provide coverage if the surgery is deemed medically necessary because of a medical condition, such as a drooping brow that impairs vision.

An endoscopic brow lift typically provides long-lasting results, using minimally invasive techniques to lift and tighten the skin above the eyebrows. The exact duration of the procedure’s effects will vary from patient to patient, depending on several factors, such as the patient’s lifestyle habits and skin quality. However, most patients can expect the effects of an endoscopic brow lift to last for several years, providing a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
