About the Forehead Brow Lift

Wrinkles and frown lines often first appear in the forehead and brow area. A forehead lift or brow lift can reduce the horizontal wrinkle lines on the forehead & bridge of the nose and the frown lines between the eyebrows.* A forehead brow lift can also raise sagging eyebrows into a more alert and youthful position.*

A brow lift can be performed alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures, such as a facelift, eyelid surgery, or laser skin resurfacing.

Forehead Brow Lift Procedure Methods

There are two methods to perform the procedure.


During the open method, the incisions are placed behind the hairline, or just at the hairline if you have a very high forehead. Improvements are made to the muscles of the forehead and brow area then the skin and muscles are tightened to raise the eyebrows.


Many patients today may be candidates for an endoscopic brow lift. Instead of making a large incision across the top of the head, several small incisions are made within the hairline and an endoscope camera and special instruments are used to perform the muscle work. The brow is then elevated and suspended with special anchoring sutures to hold the brow and forehead in the ideal position. With this approach, scarring, hair loss, and other minor drawbacks associated with the standard approach can be avoided.
