What is a Brow Lift? Is it Right for Me?

Aging skin becomes less resilient — and over time, begins to develop creases and lines, often appearing on the forehead. A brow lift can smooth away the years and create a look that is far more youthful, open, and appealing. The procedure steps will vary from person to person based on the extent of the issues that require correction.

A brow lift may be performed endoscopically (with very small incisions and instruments, guided by real-time video), with an incision hidden within the hairline.

This procedure is ideal if you have:

  • Visible, deep creases across your forehead
  • Your eyebrows have drifted lower over time and are now below the orbital bone
  • You have a heavy, overhanging brow
  • Your eyelids are sagging
  • You appear tired or unhappy due to sagging or creased forehead

A Brow Lift Creates a Refreshed, Healthy Look

This surgery can dramatically, but subtly, enhance your facial appearance. A smoothed, lifted brow creates a more open, refreshed facial look. If you perpetually appear tired due to a heavy, creased brow, the difference in your appearance can be life-changing. If you inherited a heavier brow and want to create a refreshed, youthful look, this custom surgery will bring out the best of your most attractive facial features.

What to Expect in Brow Lift Surgery: The Process

A brow lift is a custom facial rejuvenation surgery geared to smooth forehead lines and lift the brows. This procedure may be performed with other procedures such as a facelift, neck lift, or eyelid surgery for comprehensive facial rejuvenation. The procedure is never one-size-fits-all and will be based on your unique condition. The various approaches that may be employed can include:

Endoscopic Brow Lift

This procedure involves smaller incisions, hidden within your hairline. In endoscopic surgery, a small thin tube with a camera on the end is inserted into the incision, allowing Dr. Shah to see the inner structure of the brow. A surgical instrument is inserted in another incision, and the corrections to the skin, tissues, and muscles are performed. This procedure has a faster healing time and smaller incisions.

Hairline Brow Lift

This approach involves an incision directly at the hairline from which the excess skin and tissue are removed and then reconnected with tiny, meticulous sutures. This approach may be appropriate for people who need to avoid pulling the hairline back.

Coronal Brow Lift

A coronal brow lift involves placing an incision within your hair behind the hairline (from ear to ear), or at the top of the head, based on your unique condition. The forehead skin and tissue are lifted and smoothed, and reconnected.

What are the different types of brow lift procedures?

There are a few different techniques for performing a brow lift, including the traditional or coronal brow lift, endoscopic brow lift, and the temporal or limited incision brow lift. The choice of technique depends on the patient's specific concerns and the surgeon's expertise.

Are there non-surgical alternatives to a brow lift?

Non-surgical options for brow rejuvenation include injectable treatments like Botox and dermal fillers. These treatments can temporarily lift the brow area and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but their effects are not as dramatic or long-lasting as those of a surgical brow lift.
