The effects of aging are inevitable, and often the brow and forehead area are the first to show the signs of growing older as your skin begins to lose its elasticity. Sun, wind, and the pull of gravity all affect the face, resulting in frown lines, wrinkling across the forehead, and droopiness of the eyebrows. Not only do forehead wrinkles cause you to look older, but the sagging of the brow can also result in a permanently tired, angry, or sad expression. A brow lift, which repositions the eyebrows, results in wider eyes and a more alert, energized look.

What to Expect
A heavy, fallen brow can not only make you look prematurely aged, but can also give the false impression that you feel tired, angry, or stressed, no matter how you feel on the inside. By lifting and tightening the supportive structures of the forehead, the eyebrows will be returned to a naturally youthful position, and deep horizontal forehead furrows will also be greatly improved or eliminated.
Not everyone is a candidate for brow lift surgery. Aging in the lower face, like jowling or the appearance of “turkey neck,” would be better resolved with a facelift. For those men and women who notice droopy eyelids, eyelid surgery may be a better option to help you meet your goals. Eyelid surgery and brow lift surgery are often combined for even better results.
There are two techniques for performing brow lift surgery: the open (classic) procedure and the endoscopic forehead lift. During your consultation, your age, skin type, skin laxity, ethnic background, degree of brow droop, and your desired results will be taken into consideration to determine which approach will give you the best results.
For patients who want a less invasive procedure option to lift the brows, Dysport® to relax the facial muscles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles is a possible nonsurgical alternative.
Preparing for Your Brow Lift
The brow lift takes between 1 to 2 hours to complete, depending on the surgical technique used and whether other procedures are scheduled at the same time. Further, for the comfort of the patient, a brow lift is a performed under general anesthesia.
Recovery & Results
You may initially feel uncomfortable after your brow lift or notice a feeling of tightness in your forehead. Any swelling or bruising should be reduced more quickly by keeping your head elevated, including while you sleep.
You should see the final results of your brow lift by a month or two after your surgery, and enjoy a renewed, refreshed appearance and a younger-looking forehead and eye area.
