Create a more pleasant, welcoming facial expression with brow lift surgery
As the eyebrows and forehead age, they may become quite wrinkled, in some cases even sagging down to obscure the vision. This drooping skin can give off a negative impression of exhaustion and depletion, and can also make the expression appear angry or disgruntled.
You may be in perfect spirits, but find others are responding to these unappealing facial expressions that have simply been created by a low-hanging brow. In these cases, it may be time to consider surgical intervention with a brow lift. A brow lift can restore a friendly, vivacious and youthful aesthetic. It can also uplift your self-confidence, making you feel more energetic and refreshed.
Some of the major signs that you may need a brow lift are:
- Hooding of the upper eyelids
- Low-hanging eyebrows
- Trouble seeing due to drooping eyebrows
- Deep creases within the forehead
- Deep furrows or “frown lines” between the eyebrows
Benefits of a brow lift include…
- Helps to reverse a tired, angry or sad facial expression
- Can improve vision impaired by a low-hanging brow
- Smooths away facial wrinkles, fine lines and creases
- Creates a brighter smile through improvement in the eye area
- Minimal scarring
- Increases self-confidence in one’s image
- Can be highly customized to suit your goals
- Long lasting, sustainable results

Details of the procedure
Here at Associates in Plastic Surgery, we perform endoscopic brow lifts. An endoscopic brow lift is an advanced technique that uses smaller incisions at the hairline, rather than one long incision across the hairline, as was common in the past. The endoscopic technique produces great results with much less scarring.
During the procedure, a small instrument called an endoscope is inserted through the small incisions. The endoscope allows the doctor to work with a high level of precision. The brow is raised just enough to open up the eyes and still look natural, and fixed at the higher position.
As you begin to age, there are many factors at work that leave to your skin looking aged. Sun exposure, heredity, skin care, lifestyle factors like cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption, and the natural pull of gravity all affect your facial skin over time. These individual facets come together to create loose sagging skin on the forehead that can give you face a heavy look, with deep lines and wrinkles that no longer disappear with a good night’s sleep. This often gives you a tired appearance, no matter how much sleep you have had.
A brow lift, also referred to as a forehead lift, can be the solution to your tired visage. At Associates in Plastic Surgery, our team of board-certified plastic surgeons understands the intricate surgical techniques required to produce natural results. Our personalized approach allows us to create a unique surgical plan designed specifically to meet your goals for facial rejuvenation.
What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift is a surgical procedure designed to restore the skin of the forehead to a more youthful place. During a brow lift, your surgeon will smooth the skin of the brow and underlying muscle, lifting the eyebrows to a more natural resting place. This cosmetic procedure also works to smooth frown lines that have developed between the eyes. The result is a face that appears more youthful, better rested, and eyes that are opened.
What is the Difference Between a Brow Lift and an Eyelid Lift?
Upper eyelid surgery, or Blepharoplasty, focuses solely on the skin of the upper eyelids. With an eyelid lift, an incision is made in the crease of the upper eyelid, and excess skin and fatty tissue is removed.
With a brow lift, an incision is made at the hairline and the skin and underlying muscle tissue are smoothed and lifted to a more natural resting place. This procedure lifts dropping eyebrows as well, restoring them to their previous location thereby opening the eyes for a more alert appearance.
Will a Brow Lift Affect my Hairline?
Contrary to what you might have heard, a brow lift will not raise your hairline. Incisions for a brow lift are placed at the hairline, allowing it to remain perfectly intact following your brow lift procedure.
Will there be Visible Scarring with a Brow Lift?
Whenever you undergo a surgical procedure, there will always be scars. The talented surgical team at Associates in Plastic Surgery are particularly versed in how to place incisions so they will provide minimal scarring once they have healed completely. It is important that you use sunscreen on your face and especially on your scars following your brow lift procedure to allow them to fade over time.
