A brow lift, also known as forehead lift or forehead rejuvenation, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the forehead, the brow and the area around the eyes. You might choose to have a brow lift to:

  • Lift low, sagging or drooping brows
  • Remove or soften the frown lines between your eyebrows
  • Remove or soften the horizontal lines and furrows across your forehead

A brow lift can be done by itself or in conjunction with other facial procedures, such as eye lift surgery or a facelift.

A brow lift can be done in a number of ways, however there are two main methods:

  • The classic “open” lift: The classic lift involves one continuous cut starting at the level of your ears and moving up around your hair line. The incision is usually made well behind the hairline to hide the scar.
  • Endoscopic lift: For the endoscopic lift, the surgeon makes a few shorter cuts in your scalp, rather than one long incision. He or she will insert an endoscope (pencil-like camera device) into one of the cuts and use another device inserted in another cut to make the necessary changes. Because the cuts are smaller, this procedure is less invasive than the classic lift.

The type of brow lift you undergo will be based on your facial features and aesthetic preferences.

Your recovery will vary depending on whether you had a classic or endoscopic brow lift procedure. In either case, your surgeon will recommend a cold compress for 48 hours following surgery with your head elevated when resting. The stitches or sutures are removed approximately one week following surgery. You will probably have swelling and bruising that can affect parts of your face that wasn't operated on, including your cheeks and eyes. These should also subside in about a week. Most patients fully recover within two weeks and are able to return to their normal routine.
