What Is a Brow or Forehead Lift?

Brow lifts, also known as forehead lifts or browplasty, are cosmetic surgical procedures performed to address wrinkles, sagging skin, and other signs of aging in the brow and forehead area. We aim to lift and tighten the skin, smooth out forehead lines and furrows, and elevate sagging eyebrows to create a more youthful and refreshed appearance. 

During a brow lift, we may use one of a few techniques based on your needs and desired outcome. These techniques may include:

  1. Traditional Brow Lift: This method involves creating an incision behind the hairline, typically from ear to ear, to access the underlying tissues and muscles. We will then reposition and tighten these structures, removing any excess skin if necessary.
  2. Endoscopic Brow Lift: In an endoscopic brow lift, several small incisions are made within the hairline. A thin, flexible tube with a camera (endoscope) is inserted through one of the incisions to visualize and modify the tissues and muscles. Then we use specialized instruments to lift and secure the brow into a more youthful position.
  3. Limited Incision Brow Lift: This technique involves smaller incisions placed within the temples or along the upper eyelids. It is suitable for patients with less extensive sagging or those who require a more localized correction.

Why Do I Need a Brow or Forehead Lift?

There are several reasons why someone might consider getting a forehead lift, also known as a brow lift. Here are the ones we commonly see:

  1. Reducing Wrinkles and Lines: As we age, wrinkles and lines can develop on the forehead due to factors such as sun exposure, genetics, and the natural aging process. A forehead lift can smooth out these wrinkles and lines, giving you a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
  2. Elevating Sagging Eyebrows: Over time, your eyebrows may begin to droop or descend, which can make your eyes appear tired, sad, or angry. A forehead lift can lift and reposition the eyebrows to a more youthful position, opening up the eyes and creating a more vibrant and alert look.
  3. Correcting Brow Asymmetry: Sometimes people have naturally asymmetrical eyebrows, or can develop asymmetry due to factors like muscle imbalances or previous trauma. A forehead lift can help address brow asymmetry, creating a more balanced and harmonious appearance.
  4. Enhancing Facial Harmony: The position and shape of the forehead and eyebrows play a significant role in overall facial aesthetics. If you feel that their forehead or eyebrow area is out of proportion with the rest of their features, a forehead lift can help create better facial balance and harmony.
  5. Boosting Self-Confidence: Some of our patients choose to undergo a forehead lift to improve their self-esteem and confidence. By addressing concerns and insecurities related to forehead wrinkles, sagging eyebrows, or asymmetry, you can feel more positive about your appearance and project a greater sense of self-assurance.

What Should I Expect During a Brow Lift?

The choice of technique will depend on factors such as how severe your brow sagging is and the results you are trying to achieve. Depending on your needs, we can perform the brow lift under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. This is something we would discuss at your consultation.

After your procedure, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed pain medication. Everyone is different, but generally brow lifts involve a week or two of downtime before returning to normal daily activities.
