Brow Lift - Forehead Lift To Reduce Wrinkles & Fine Lines

Brow Lift

Brow Lift

Undergoing a brow lift, also referred to as a forehead lift or foreheadplasty, can restore the eyebrows to a youthful-looking position and ease forehead creases. As we age, forehead tissues begin to sag and lose definition, leading to the formation of deep wrinkles or folds. Often called “worry lines,” these horizontal forehead creases can contribute to a stressed or tired appearance. Brow lift surgery can remove excess skin from the brows and reposition lax forehead skin to smooth wrinkles. Technological advancements have led to safer, less-invasive methods for restoring younger-looking brows, including the endoscopic brow lift, temporal brow lift, and internal brow lift, or browpexy. There are multiple types of forehead lifts available to help patients achieve natural-looking results that fulfill their individual procedure goals.

Your Brow Lift Procedure

Depending on the specifics of your browlift, your procedure can be performed at an outpatient surgical facility or a local hospital. Incisions are strategically placed either behind the hairline or in the natural crease of your upper eyelids. Your brow lift surgeon can elevate forehead tissues to improve drooping brows and reposition loose skin to minimize the appearance of frown lines. Excess skin may also be carefully removed to restore natural-looking contours to the brows. Patients who experience impaired vision from drooping eyelids may require a greater amount of skin removal, depending on the specifics of your treatment.

Oftentimes, brow lift surgery is combined with blepharoplasty to re-contour the brows and eyelids for a rejuvenated expression. Foreheadplasty can be used in conjunction with facelift surgery, rhinoplasty, and chin augmentation, as well.

What To Expect After Undergoing Brow Lift Surgery

Brow lift patients can expect to have slight swelling and bruising after undergoing their procedure. Foreheadplasty healing time will depend on the type of browlift performed, as well as your particular procedure. However, bruising and swelling will usually resolve within 7 days of your forehead lift. Patients are usually back to work within 1-2 weeks of completing their browlift surgery. Your brow lift surgeon will carefully monitor your recovery in the weeks following surgery. Patients can expect follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing. Exact timeframes can be discussed during your forehead lift consultation.

Brow lift surgery is designed to yield long-term facial rejuvenation results. Patients who are suffering from laxity around the brows or worry lines can undergo a forehead lift for a firmer, youthful-looking expression.
