What is a brow lift?

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate the area above the eyes, including the forehead and brows. By lifting sagging eyebrows, reducing forehead wrinkles, and smoothing etched-in frown lines, a brow lift leaves you with a more youthful and alert appearance. This procedure is often the ideal rejuvenating surgery for men and women with aging in the upper face or who have a sagging, heavy-looking brow.

Who is a candidate for brow lift surgery?

Ideal candidates for a brow lift are individuals in good general health and non-smokers. Signs that you may be a good candidate for a brow lift include:

  • Sagging or low eyebrow position that creates a tired or unhappy appearance
  • Etched in horizontal creases across the forehead
  • Deep, visible frown lines between the eyebrows
  • A heavy, overhanging, or sagging brow
  • Eyebrows are now below the orbital bone

What to expect in brow lift surgery?

During a brow lift, Dr. Davidson makes small incisions within the hairline or in the forehead, depending on what will be most appropriate for the patient. Through these incisions, he will lift and reposition the skin and underlying muscles to create a smoother, lifted appearance. The procedure is performed with meticulous attention to detail for exceptional results.

Complementary procedures for enhanced results

To achieve a more comprehensive degree of facial rejuvenation, a brow lift can be combined with other facial procedures. 

These may include:

  • Eyelid lift (blepharoplasty): To address sagging eyelids and under-eye bags, creating a more alert and youthful eye appearance.
  • Facelift: To lift and tighten sagging skin in the mid and lower face, complementing the results of the brow lift.
  • Lip lift: To enhance the volume and shape of the lips if thinner due to age or genetics.

Recovery after brow lift surgery

Brow lift surgery is typically performed as outpatient surgery, with patients going home the same day. It is performed under general anesthetic. Patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which generally subside within a week. Discomfort can be managed with prescribed pain medications. Dr. Davidson and his team provide detailed aftercare instructions and are committed to supporting you throughout the recovery process to ensure a smooth and comfortable healing journey.
