Forehead & Eyebrow Lifts

Forehead & Eyebrow Lifts

Your forehead and eyebrows often show early signs of the normal aging process. Forehead and eyebrow aging changes are sometimes hastened by a lot of sun and wind exposure or just by the pull of gravity. Aging of the forehead area and eyebrows can result in forehead furrows, “frown lines”, wrinkling across the forehead and a “heaviness” of the eyebrows making them a bit droopy. Sagging eyebrows can make you project a tired, sad or even grumpy appearance.

About Forehead & Eyebrow Lifts

A forehead lift, or “browlift,” is a procedure that we use to restore a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. It can also help people of any age who have developed furrows or frown lines due to stress or muscle activity.  

Some individuals with inherited low, heavy brows or furrowed lines above the nose can also achieve a more alert and refreshed look with this procedure. A forehead or brow lift may be combined with eyelid surgery such as blepharoplasty to provide the best results for a more harmonious, youthful appearance. We find that sometimes patients who seek consultation for an upper eyelid blepharoplasty surgery find that a forehead lift better meets their personal appearance goals. The surgical objective of a browlift is to tighten excess loose skin, smooth forehead wrinkling and modify drooping brows in order to create a smoother brow and a more youthful expression. The primary goal, in most patients, is to rejuvenate the eyes, making them look more rested and youthful. Having a thorough consultation and discussion will help us identify your areas of concern and personal goals.

Consider Forehead & Eyebrow Lifts?

Patients who might find a brow lift beneficial are typically concerned about having a sad expression due to the outside of their brow sagging or those who have an angry expression because their central brow hangs or droops downward. Others who can benefit from brow lifts are unhappy with the presence of “frown lines” on their forehead and women who have difficulty applying makeup to their upper eyelid as the surface has been obscured by droopy skin as well as those patients who can see a pleasant improvement in appearance by gently lifting the skin above their eyebrows. For some, combining a brow lift with a blepharoplasty has a major benefit as it allows us to improve baggy tissue and crow’s feet providing a much happier overall look.
