A brow lift (forehead lift) can reverse the signs of aging in the upper face by improving the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead and removing sagging skin on the eyelids. Through this procedure, patients can restore a relaxed appearance to the forehead and eyelids to make the face appear more youthful.


The best candidates for a brow lift are in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the procedure. Although many patients who undergo the procedure are over the age of 40, there is no specific age required to get a brow lift.


The procedure takes a couple of hours to complete and is performed under twilight or general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. During the procedure, an incision will be made just behind the frontal hairline across the scalp to the temporal regions. Tissue and muscle are repositioned or removed, the eyebrow is lifted, and excess skin is excised. The endoscopic technique corrects tissue, muscle, and brow position, and only requires small incisions to be made within the hairline.


Plenty of rest is recommended after the procedure is complete. Although pain and swelling may be apparent for the first few days, prescribed medication can help alleviate these symptoms. Patients usually feel good enough to return to work in about a week, but should avoid any exercise or rigorous activity for a couple of weeks.


Brow lift surgery is an effective procedure that can revitalize the upper portion of a person’s face. Often times, individuals develop a renewed sense knowing that they look well-rested and more youthful.
