About brow lift surgery

In a forehead lift with our plastic and cosmetic surgeons, the underlying facial muscles and tissues causing the folds and wrinkles are repaired to smooth the skin on the forehead, elevate the eyebrows to a youthful position, and minimize the appearance of frown lines. Usually, the surgeon hides the incision approximately two and a half inches behind the hairline to avoid visible scarring. We will not have to shave any hair in order to perform your brow lift.

Surgeons sometimes perform a forehead lift in conjunction with a facelift to provide a smoother look to the face. You may choose to have eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) at the same time as a forehead lift, especially if you have significant skin overhang in the upper eyelids in addition to sagging brows. Sometimes, patients who believe they need upper-eyelid surgery find that a forehead lift better meets their surgical goals.
