Brow/Forehead Lift

A brow lift reduces forehead creasing and raises sagging eyebrows, opening up the eye area. Other procedures are often combined with a brow lift to achieve a full rejuvenation effect.


Procedure: 1-2 hours in surgery. Several incisions, hidden within the hairline, allow your surgeon to use an endoscope to tighten tissues, modify muscles and raise brows. If necessary, a longer incision may be made within the hairline and across the top of the scalp. Click here for procedural renderings.

Anesthesia: Local with sedation, or general.

Length of Stay: Plan to spend about half a day at the Cosmetic Surgery Center.

What to expect: Oral medication relieves the initial discomfort of swelling, tenderness and headache. Most bruising and swelling resolves within 1-2 weeks, with full recovery from bruising in 3 weeks.

Resuming Activities: Plan to go back to work in 2-3 days, and resume more strenuous activity in a few weeks. Sun exposure should be avoided for several months.

Duration of results: 10-15 years.

Risks: Bleeding, infection, wide scars, hair loss, hairline change, nerve injury causing loss of motion, muscle weakness or asymmetry may occur. All surgeries carry risks associated with anesthesia.
