Who is a candidate for Forehead Lift/Brow Lift?

  • If your forehead sags or your brows hang too low and too close to the eyes.
  • If you have deep vertical furrows between the eyebrows (frown lines).
  • If the outside corners of your eyes are covered by a “hood” of brow skin.

Intended results of Forehead Lift/Brow Lift:

  • A more youthful and rested appearance to the forehead and upper eyelids.
  • A more feminine brow position.
  • Correction of the “hooding” of the outside corner of the eyes.
  • A result that conveys feminine rise of the outside of the brows and not an overall surprised look.

Forehead Lift/Brow Lift procedure description:

  • The plastic surgery procedure is done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia.
  • Usually, endoscopic or minimally invasive techniques are used to minimize scarring.
  • Specialized absorbable implants (endotine by MicroAire) are used for the lift of the brow.
  • When open techniques are used, the incisions are usually made behind the hairline. For patients with high foreheads, the incisions can be placed in front of the hairline.
  • The forehead skin is lifted and re-positioned, weakening the muscles that cause frown lines.
  • Specific attention is paid to the natural feminine position of the eyebrow, without the surprise look.

Recuperation and healing following forehead lift

  • The patient goes home with head wrapped in dressings, which are usually removed on the first day after surgery.
  • Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication.
  • Sutures or staples are removed within 10 days.
  • Most swelling and bruising is gone in 7-10 days.
