Brow Lift / Forehead Lift
The effects of aging can be efficiently reversed with a brow lift plastic surgery. You can restore youthful contours around the brow area and forehead. Drooping brow tends to create an unattractive facial appearance. In some people, it also causes vision impediments. Plastic surgeons may recommend getting a brow lift surgery.
However, patient should be unhesitant in asking questions regarding their brow lift during pre-operative consultation. Surgeons in some cases recommend combining brow lift cosmetic surgery and eyelid lift for creating comprehensive results.

Procedure and Technique Options
Brow lift surgery has evolved over the years from being an open surgery to one that is less invasive. The procedure doesn’t involve more than a tiny incision now. Your surgeon will make an incision in your scalp in most cases. However, sometimes the incision needs to be made on the forehead or upper eyelids as well.
Open Brow Lift
This technique involves making a long incision across the forehead. Your surgeon will use the natural creases around the hairline to make the incisions. They will lift the skin and reposition muscles to remove excess fat. The surgeon will then remove the loose skin and suture your brow into a new and refined position.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
The surgeon in this procedure will make a small incision in your scalp to insert the endoscope. The endoscope will have a tiny camera attached at one end to allow the surgeon to look at the internal structure. This technique is more precise and less invasive as compared to a brow lift surgery.
Limited Incision Technique
The procedure involves tinier incisions even though it is not endoscopic in nature. The external parts of your brows will be elevated in this procedure using tiny incisions. Subsequent scarring will be inconspicuous and limited within the temporal hairline.
Benefits of Brow Lift
Your surgeon will recommend the best brow lift procedure depending the extent of sagging skin and your individual aesthetic goals. The procedure requires incisions of different lengths which depends on whether the brow lift is being performed in combination with a forehead lift or upper eyelid lift or as a standalone.
Brow lifts can go a long way in improving the appearance of your forehead and upper face. Primary advantages include:
- Repositioning droopy or low brows
- Lifting brows for an alert and youthful appearance
