Brow Lift - Cosmetic Surgery Procedures

A brow lift or forehead lift is a cosmetic procedure that restores the look to the area above the eyes. The procedure lifts ‘hanging’ brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows between the eyebrows that can make a person appear to have a constant frown.

The brow lift operation takes 1-2 hours to complete and normally involves an overnight stay in hospital; the surgery is carried out under a general anesthetic.


In a brow lift surgery, muscles and tissues are removed or changed to smooth the forehead, raise the eyebrows and reduce frown lines.

A brow lift surgeon may use the usual surgical method, in which the incision is just at the hairline and the skin is literally lifted and stapled into place. Another method is to use an endoscope, a pencil-thin camera device that is connected to a television monitor, allowing the procedure to be performed with much smaller incisions. Both techniques yield similar results -- smoother forehead skin and a more animated appearance.

For the endoscope method of a brow lift, 4-6 inch long incisions behind the hairline will be made; the endoscope is then inserted through each incision in turn, allowing the surgeon to see the muscles and tissues beneath the skin. He will then remove some of these to produce the smoother and younger looking forehead. When the incisions are closed, they are done so horizontally to give additional lift to the forehead area.

Brow lift patients may experience numbness and swelling, with only a little discomfort. In order to keep swelling to a minimum you should keep your head elevated. Bandages are removed one or two days following brow lift surgery and stitches or metal clips removed within two weeks of the brow lift operation. The scars will usually fade within a few months and you will be requested to make follow-up visits in the months after surgery to check on your brow lifts progress.
