The forehead and brow are often the first areas of the face to display signs of aging. Fortunately, deep forehead wrinkles, frown lines, brow furrows, and sagging eyebrows can all be corrected. A brow lift, also called a forehead lift, is an excellent way to restore a refreshed and youthful appearance.

What is Brow Lift Surgery?
A brow lift combats the effects of gravity, time, and even genetics by smoothing and tightening the upper third of the face. It can have a significant positive impact on your appearance.
This surgery can benefit you by:
- Reducing deep horizontal creases in the forehead area
- Improving the appearance of furrows or frown lines between the eyebrows
- Raising eyebrow position to a more youthful and alert height
- Correcting sagging brows that hang over the upper eyelid
In addition to accomplishing the cosmetic goals above, a brow lift has the added advantage of making you look happier and more approachable. Lines, wrinkles, and sagging can work against you by giving off a tired appearance that no amount of sleep or relaxation can fix. By improving these concerns, a brow lift helps you make the right impression.
Eyebrow Lift Candidates
Most people looking to rejuvenate their upper face are great candidates for a forehead lift. During your initial consultation, Dr. Weiss will determine if the procedure is right for your situation.
The ideal brow lift candidate is in good health and has realistic expectations for the procedure. While many brow lift patients are over the age of 50, it can also be beneficial for younger patients who have genetically low eyebrows.
How is a Brow Lift Performed?
Dr. Weiss typically performs endoscopic brow lifts. This means that he makes four to five small incisions behind the hairline. Through one of these incisions, he inserts a tiny camera. The camera allows Dr. Weiss to visualize the area beneath the skin and to mark the small muscles responsible for deep furrows and other concerns.
Then, Dr. Weiss uses another instrument to alter the underlying tissues and release wrinkles. At this time, the eyebrows are lifted and placed into a higher position. Finally, he closes the small incisions.
Brow Lift Recovery
Patients generally experience a short and simple recovery period following a forehead lift. This procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, so you can return home after the surgery is complete.
You may notice manageable discomfort, swelling, and numbness in the first few days. Typically, you can return to work within 7-10 days, potentially sooner.
When it comes to avoiding certain activities and caring for the treated area, Dr. Weiss will give you detailed instructions. It is important to follow these guidelines to ensure a safe and speedy recovery. He is available throughout the healing process to answer any questions you may have.
Combining Procedures to Achieve Your Goals
A brow lift may be enough to correct your cosmetic concerns. However, many patients choose to combine the surgery with other aesthetic procedures to address multiple areas of the face.
Forehead lift surgery is frequently performed alongside an eyelid lift as part of a complete approach to dealing with the upper face and forehead. If volume loss in the forehead and temples is a concern, it can be addressed at the same time as a brow lift with a fat transfer procedure. A brow lift is also commonly combined with a facelift for thorough facial rejuvenation.
