Brow Lift

A forehead lift or “brow lift” is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. The procedure corrects drooping brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired.

Brow lifts can be performed alone, or is frequently performed in conjunction with other procedures such as facelift or eyelid surgery. The brow lift corrects the deep horizontal lines in the forehead and raises the brows back to a more youthful position when they fall below the orbital rim (eye socket). This procedure can be performed through an incision running over the top of the head or with very limited incisions along with upper lid lift.

After surgery you may be wrapped in a light head dressing for 48 hours. Mild bruising and swelling during the first week to ten days is not unusual. Most patients are able to resume a normal level of activity within two weeks after surgery. Possible risks associated with a brow lift include numbness and weakness in the muscles of the forehead. Complications are rare and usually temporary.
