Brow Lift

What is Brow Lift surgery?

What is Brow Lift surgery?

Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift minimizes the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose; improves what are commonly referred to as frown lines; and repositions a low or sagging brow.

A brow lift is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else's desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image. Brow lift surgery is a good option for you if:

  • You are physically healthy
  • You don't smoke
  • You have limited visual field as recorded on a visual field test performed by your optometrist or ophthalmologist
  • You have a positive outlook and specific, but realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance

Step 1 - Anesthesia

Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.


Step 2 - The incision

A brow lift may sometimes be performed using an endoscope (surgical video device) and special instruments placed through small incisions made within the hairline. This allows the tissue and muscle beneath the skin to be repositioned, altered or removed, correcting the source of visible creases and furrows in the forehead.

Correction of a low-positioned or sagging brow may be made with or without the use of an endoscope through incisions at the temples and in the scalp.

This technique may be done in conjunction with incisions hidden within the natural crease of the upper eyelids to eliminate frown lines between the brows, on or above the bridge of the nose.

An alternative technique uses incisions at or within the hairline. This technique involves an incision partially or completely across the hairline depending on the patient's needs, lifting the forehead and removing excess skin from the scalp.

The incision lines from a brow lift are well concealed within the hair and generally inconspicuous if placed at the hairline.

Results appear gradually as swelling and bruising subside to reveal smoother forehead skin and a more youthful, rested appearance.


Step 3 - Closing the incisions

Brow lift incisions typically are closed with:
  • Removable or absorbable sutures
  • Skin adhesives
  • Surgical tape
  • Special clips

Step 4 - See the results

Brow elevation may be maintained by the use of:
  • Permanent sutures
  • Small surgical screws
  • Absorbable fixation device placed inconspicuously at the temple
