What To Know About a Brow Lift

Your face changes as you age. Your skin loses moisture and elasticity, so your skin begins to sag. Sagging skin shows up everywhere, including your forehead and brows. Your plastic surgeon can give your forehead and brows a more lifted, younger look, thanks to a procedure known as a brow lift.

How a Brow Lift Can Help You

A brow lift is a surgical procedure performed by a plastic surgeon. A brow lift is done for cosmetic reasons to raise the forehead and brows. The procedure can enhance the appearance of the forehead, the brows, and the area surrounding the eyes.

Typically, the plastic surgeon makes an incision at the hairline. The skin on the forehead is lifted and excess tissue and fat are removed. The skin is then repositioned, raising the eyebrows and forehead tissue. A brow lift will:

  • Raise and enhance the appearance of the forehead and brows
  • Give your face a younger appearance
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead
  • Enhance the appearance of the eyes
  • Tighten the sagging skin on the forehead

A brow lift may be done in combination with a variety of other plastic surgery procedures including a facelift or an eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty.

A brow lift procedure takes between 1 and 2 hours and is performed under IV sedation. You will experience some swelling and bruising which may last up to 10 days after your procedure. Recovery takes about 2 weeks, during which time it’s important to avoid strenuous activities. During recovery, it’s important to keep your head elevated to limit swelling. Your plastic surgeon can help with pain management while you recover.
