Brow Lift Surgery

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, can improve the appearance of an aging brow area. The procedure does this through lifting and tightening the forehead and raising the eyebrows. After a brow lift, forehead wrinkles and tension lines are minimized. This creates a fresher, more youthful look to the area above the eyes.

Why a brow lift

The best time to have a forehead/brow lift is at the first signs of drooping and wrinkles in the forehead and eye area. Both Dr. Daniel Butz and our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Andrew Campbell, have treated male and female patients in a wide range of ages with eye brow and forehead problems. To determine the possible outcome of brow lift surgery, you can conduct this simple test. While looking in a mirror, place your palms at the outside areas of your eyes just above your eyebrows, and then gently move the skin out and up to raise the area. The resulting elevation of the eyebrow brightens the appearance of the eyes by providing a more youthful, rejuvenated “frame” around the eye.

The forehead lift procedure

Our doctors use an endoscope, a small tube used to view the body’s interior, in the majority of our brow lift procedures. This allows for minimal incisions during the procedure. Because the incisions are hidden within the hair and all of the surgery is performed under the skin, the incisions are virtually undetectable. During brow lift surgery, small muscles are removed between the eyes to lessen the wrinkles between the eyebrows. Forehead tissue is moved, elevated, and secured in a more pleasing position. A high forehead can actually be reduced in size. At the same time, the brows are elevated by making a beveled incision within the hairline. This results in lowering the hairline and the resulting scar is hidden just behind the first few hairs.

Brow lift recovery and results

Brow lift surgery at Quintessa is done as an outpatient procedure. Patients who undergo endoscopic brow lift surgery will typically recover and no longer see signs of surgery within one to two weeks. During recovery, there is usually little or no bruising and minimal swelling. The resulting improvement to the brow area is immediate and results last a lifetime.
