A brow lift, also commonly called a forehead lift, rejuvenates the face above the eyes to restore a more refreshed appearance that better reflects a patient’s natural vibrance. By removing excess sagging, skin on the forehead and repositioning the underlying muscles and tissues, a brow lift can correct a heavy, sagging brow, eliminate deep furrows, and restore a smoother, more youthful contour to the upper one-third of the face.


Aging can make the skin saggy and may also cause wrinkles and creases. Over time, the tissues around the eyebrows and forehead also start to lose their elasticity and weaken. All this can ultimately lead to a tired or stressed appearance. If you are concerned about your appearance because of your saggy brow or asymmetry brow then brow lift surgery is your option A brow lift might also boost your self-confidence.

During your consultation, you and your plastic surgeon will discuss why you need the surgery, and what you hope to achieve. You will also discuss the process of the surgery and everything that will be involved until your recovery period. You should be completely open with the doctor about your expectations, concerns, and habits. Your medical history will be evaluated to determine your candidacy for the surgery. The doctor will also take photos of your face so that you can see the difference after the surgery.

There are certain guidelines that the doctor will advise you to follow before the surgery, like maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regularly, stop smoking at least three weeks before the surgery, strictly avoid anti-inflammatory drugs or medicines having aspirin so that the risk of excess bleeding is reduced.

A brow lift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under intravenous sedation or general anaesthesia. Your surgeons may also combine this procedure with eyelid surgery to fix visible signs of aging on the upper or lower eyelids. There are different types of techniques for brow lift, the technique to be used depends upon your expectation from the surgery.

Endoscopic Brow Lift: This procedure is becoming increasingly common among surgeons and is a minimally invasive technique. For an endoscopic brow lift, your surgeon will make a series of very short incisions just behind the hairline. Then, using a special tiny camera and thin instruments, he or she will reposition the muscles and lift the underlying tissues of the forehead, removing excess fat and tissue as needed to create a naturally more youthful brow.

Coronal Brow Lift: Coronal brow lift is an old method of brow lift surgery. Your surgeon will make an incision behind your hairline across the top of your head, from ear to ear, or primarily on the top of your head. He or she will lift your forehead into its new position, with the scalp in front of the incision overlapping the scalp behind it. The overlapping scalp is then removed, and the remaining scalp is sewn together. This technique is not typically done in people who have high hairlines, thin hair, or who are likely to lose their hair.

Temporal Brow Lift: A temporal brow lift involves slightly longer incisions than an endoscopic brow lift and is mostly performed in conjunction with eyelid surgery. Your surgeon will make incisions about 1 inch long just above each temple, behind the hairline. Through these incisions, your cosmetic surgeon will lift and reposition the tissues of the outer brow area. Then, through the incisions made for an upper eyelid procedure, the area between the eyebrows is lifted to smooth out frown lines.

After your surgery, your forehead may be taped, and/or your head may be loosely wrapped to minimize swelling and bruising after the procedure is completed. A thin tube may be present to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect under the skin.

You will experience very little pain, but it is common to feel slight discomfort as well as a sensation of tightness throughout the forehead. Swelling and bruising are most common during the first 10 days or so after surgery and are mostly resolved after about 2 weeks. The timeline for resuming activity after a brow lift depends on the individual, if you are having a brow lift alone, recovery is usually much quicker than that for a patient having a brow lift in conjunction with a facelift or other more extensive procedure.

In order to have successful long-lasting results it is important to follow the below:

- Take pain medication as per prescription.
- Apply cold compresses to relieve swelling.
- Avoid exposing your incisions to excessive pressure or motion.
- Keep your head elevated while resting or sleeping.
- Contact your doctor immediately if you experience shortness of breath, chest pain, or irregular heartbeats.

It is important to attend follow-up appointments with your doctor to keep track of your progress.
