The forehead lift, also known as the brow lift, is a relatively simple procedure that can be customized to your needs to improve a sagging brow, forehead creases, hooding over the eyes, and forehead furrows and frown lines. The minimally-invasive endoscopic forehead lift is a commonly used technique today. It can help to maximize the youthfulness of your appearance while brightening up your face and outlook on life.
If you are in good general health and have realistic expectations for improving aging signs in the forehead, the forehead lift may be right for you. Brow lift patients are typically looking to improve sagging eyebrows, forehead creases or furrows, hooding above the eyes, and/or frown lines.

General anesthesia or a combination of local anesthesia and sedation may be used for the forehead lift. The surgery takes just one to two hours to complete in most cases. The endoscopic technique is commonly used today, and this is performed through three to five very short incisions located within the hairline. A small camera device known as an endoscope is then inserted through the incisions and used as an aid to help the surgeon remove excess tissue and alter the forehead muscles.
The eyebrows may also be elevated before closing the incisions with fine sutures. A longer, headphone-like incision is made across the top of the head just within the hairline for the traditional forehead lift. This allows for the removal of excess skin if needed.
Following brow lift surgery, patients can expect some degree of swelling, bruising, and numbness. Bruising and swelling typically take one to two weeks to resolve, while the swelling may take a week or so to fade. Any discomfort that patients experience can be managed with medication. Bandages applied after surgery are typically removed within a day or two, while sutures may be removed within one to two weeks.
