Brow Lift / Forehead Lift
Forehead lift or brow lift surgery techniques have become more advanced over the years. The procedure has become less invasive and has dramatically improved success rates. However, the procedure needs to be performed intricately since even the most minor changes to the brow shape can have a profound effect on the overall facial appearance.
The surgical procedure involves the eye area which makes it delicate in any case. You should always work with a qualified plastic surgeon for minimizing your risk. The surgeon should have dedicated experience in the field of brow lift and eyelid lift surgery.

Sundin, provides forehead lift and brow lift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.
Options for Brow Lift Surgery
Open Brow Lift
This technique involves a longer incision made across the forehead. Your surgeon will do everything possible for keeping the incision hidden near the hairline or within the forehead creases. They will use the incision to lift skin away from the underlying tissue. The surgeon will also reposition all loose muscles. Any loose skin will be excised before suturing the brow in a new and refined position.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
This cosmetic surgery technique makes use of an endoscope and is less invasive in nature. Small incisions are created in the scalp through which a tiny camera is inserted. This provides the surgeon with a view of the internal structures. The forehead and brow skin are tightened through the incisions so as to provide a subtle lift.
Potential Complications and Risks
These are a few potential risks of a brow lift or forehead lift surgery:
There will be some degree of scarring after any surgery. This holds true in the case of a brow lift as well. Significant incisions are involved in traditional brow lift surgery. These tend to leave some amount of scarring which fade away into thin, white lines over the months.
You may experience receding hair line at the surgical site after a forehead or brow lift plastic surgery. You should speak with a surgeon in advance if this is a concern to you. They may be able to modify or adjust the surgery plan.
Loss of Movement or Numbness
Damage to underlying nerves in rare cases can cause loss of movement or numbness in a particular spot. This is why you should choose to work with highly qualified and experienced brow lift surgeons that can minimize the risk.
Temporary Side Effects
There are several temporary side effects to brow/forehead lift surgery. These generally resolve on their own within the first few days of the surgery.
- Irritation from the dressings
- Minor soreness and discomfort in the incision area
- Firm skin
- Swelling and bruising
- Minor sensation changes in the treated area
Patients in very exceptional cases may suffer from irregular or asymmetrical skin contours. These can usually be corrected using a revision brow lift surgery.
