A brow lift is a surgical procedure to elevate your brow line and smooth creases and lines on your forehead. It raises the skin and soft tissue of the forehead and subtly lifts the eyebrows and upper eyelids to create a more refreshed, healthy, youthful appearance.
Who is a good candidate for a brow lift?
Some individuals have inherited a lower eyebrow position that can become more pronounced with age, as the skin loses elasticity and the bone shrinks. Vertical scowl lines may form between the eyes, and horizontal creases can become etched into the forehead from repeated eyebrow movement over time, which can contribute to a sagging brow and creased forehead that leaves you looking tired, sad, or angry. If you are experiencing these effects of aging, you may be a candidate for a brow lift.

What is recovery like after a brow lift?
After surgery, your forehead may be taped and your head wrapped to minimize bruising and swelling. A drain may be placed under the skin to remove excess fluid. You may experience mild to moderate pain, which is managed with prescription medication. Rest with your head elevated for the first few days. Take gentle walks to aid circulation but avoid strenuous exercise for the first few weeks after surgery.
What should I do to prepare for a brow lift?
If you are a smoker, stop at least two weeks before and for three weeks after surgery. Do not take aspirin or anti-inflammatory medications for two weeks before and for two weeks following a brow lift. Thoroughly wash your hair with antibacterial shampoo the night before your surgery. On the day of the procedure, wear loose, comfortable clothing that buttons or zips and does not have to be pulled over the head.
Where are the incisions for a forehead lift?
There are four tiny incisions hidden in the hairline.
Is any hair shaved during a forehead lift?
No. The incisions are placed in the hairline, but no hair is actually shaved.
Is it true that anyone who has a brow lift experiences an upset stomach?
While this was true 20 years ago, today, preventive medication is used to prevent this from occurring.
If you are considering a brow lift, what can be done if you already have a “high” forehead?
The procedure is performed in such a way as to maintain balance and proportion. A hairline or “pretrichial” incision is used, which maintains the forehead height while raising the brows.
