The Brow Lift or Forehead Lift repositions the eyebrows and smoothes the forehead to address one of the very first signs of aging, lengthening of the forehead and drooping of the eyebrows. The result is a more youthful and rested appearance to the forehead and upper eyelids and a softening of lines in the forehead and between the eyes.
A Forehead Lift can be performed as early as the 30s, and well into the 70s.
The Brow Lift can be approached through several different incisions depending on the individual’s anatomy, hairline, and preferences. By far the most common approach is the Endoscopic Surgery using a tiny camera through very small incisions in the scalp. Other possible incisions are just above the eyebrows, within a horizontal forehead crease, or along the hairline. The coronal browlift incision from ear to ear is rarely the preferred method anymore due to hair loss, sensory loss, and greater recovery time. Frequently, the muscles that cause frowning are carefully weakened during surgery to create a pleasant, relaxed appearance. This creates the same effect as Botox injections but unlike Botox which is temporary, the effects of surgically weakening the muscles are permanent.

Surgical Time and Recovery:
Brow Lift Surgery is performed on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia and oral or IV sedation, and takes about an hour. Discomfort is minimal to moderate. Stitches or skin clips are removed in 7 to 10 days. Most patients return to work in one to two weeks.
