It can be distressing to see your brow area drifting down, with your brows sinking below the bone structure and deep lines and creases appearing on your forehead. A brow lift can restore your brows to a more youthful position, tightening forehead skin to reduce the appearance of deep creases, and through the process, lift your eyelids as well. Are you dismayed to see the signs of aging, with drooping brows and deep wrinkles and creases? Find out more about a brow lift procedure.


Who is a Candidate for a Brow Lift?

If your forehead sags or your brows have drifted down and are now too close to your eyes.

If you have deep vertical furrows between the eyebrows (frown lines).

If the outside corners of your eyes look hooded due to drooping brow skin.


Intended Results

  • A more youthful and rested appearance to the forehead and upper eyelids.
  • A more feminine brow position.
  • Correction of the “hooding” appearing at the outside corner of the eyes.
  • A result that conveys a lovely, feminine rise to the brows – not a surprised, tight, or unnatural look.

Brow Lift or Forehead Lift Procedure Description:

  • It is done on an outpatient basis, with the patient under general anesthesia.
  • Usually, endoscopic or minimally invasive surgical techniques are employed to minimize scarring.
  • Specialized absorbable implants (endotine by MicroAire) are used to help lift brow tissue.
  • Different techniques such as temporal lift, hairline lift or a standard lift are used to address the type of aging that is presented.
  • When open techniques are used, the incisions are typically placed inside the hairline. For patients with higher foreheads, the incisions can be placed in front of the hairline.
  • The forehead skin is lifted and re-positioned, tightening the muscles that have created the frown lines.
  • Specific attention is paid to the natural feminine position of the eyebrow, to avoid that surprised, unnatural look of a poorly performed brow lift.
