50 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift or browplasty, improves signs of age and stress that become visible within the forehead and brow region. Sagging of the brow, like the face, is a telltale change that comes with age. The downward drift of a lax brow makes the eyes appear smaller and is responsible for some of upper eyelid excess that is seen with age. Frown and furrow lines above the nose and across the forehead make the face appear angry, unhappy, and old. These lines also have the effect of making a person appear tired, especially with age. The board-certified plastic surgeons of The Peer Group offer brow lift surgery in northern New Jersey to help women and men look younger, more approachable and alert. The result is a smoother, softer, younger looking face.

Surgical Technique

There are several techniques that can be considered during a brow lift procedure. Some of the approaches are interchangeable with a forehead lift, but may be used to achieve different objectives. 

Lateral Eyebrow Lift

If you look in the mirror and lift your eyebrow above its arch with your fingertip, and notice how much better your eyelid and crow’s feet area looks. See how much younger and more beautiful the upper face becomes. This is what a lateral brow lift does. It is a simple procedure recommended for sagging eyebrows. It does not lift the medial eyebrow, which may produce a surprised look. The incision is usually hidden behind the hairline.

Endoscopic Brow Lift

This approach provides a subtle change in the position of the eyebrows. It uses several small (1-inch or smaller) incisions above the hairline of the forehead where an endoscope (specialized camera) is placed, and surgical tools are used to weaken the frown muscles and elevate the eyebrows.

Coronal Brow Lift

This approach places the incision above the hairline of the head. These incisions are typically long, yet still hidden by the patient’s hair. This technique repositions the eyebrows by lifting them up to give an alert and revitalized appearance.  If the patient has too high a forehead, it can be lowered as the brows are lifted. This approach offers dramatic results.

During/After Surgery

All brow lifts are performed under anesthesia as an outpatient procedure in an accredited surgical facility. The surgery typically takes 1 to 2 hours to complete depending on the approach. Patients can generally return to work and resume normal activities within a few days following surgery. Although most swelling disappears within a week, complete resolution usually takes a month.

Brow Lift FAQs

Do I Need A Browlift?

This will be discussed in detail during your initial consultation, following a thorough examination by your plastic surgeon. Usually, the effects of aging take place in the forehead region along with the rest of the fac.  If wrinkles, loose skin and sagging eyebrows are contributing to a tired, aged appearance, then a brow lift or forehead lift may be what is needed for a younger look. For drooping jowls and wrinkles along the lower area of the face, then a facelift may be worth consideration. These procedures are frequently combined for the best result.

Will I Look Fake?

No! The surgeons at The Peer Group always strive for a natural, beautiful result.  A brow lift produces results that allow patients to appear more youthful and rested. Your surgeon will work with you to create natural results that restore the youth and beauty of the brow area.

Can I Just use BOTOX?

Not necessarily. BOTOX is a great non-surgical option that improves the wrinkles and fine lines of the forehead. It can temporarily lift the lateral brow, however, it will not permanently lift the forehead and improve sagging and drooping features. Patients who are contemplating surgery may want to try BOTOX first and see if the results satisfy their aesthetic goals. If BOTOX proves ineffective, then a brow lift will probably help in this area.

Visible Scarring?

The incisions made during a brow lift procedure are usually well-concealed once they heal. Whether they are placed above or at the hairline, every effort is made to keep the incisions along natural folds so they are not visible after surgery.  When placed at the hairline, the incisions are camouflaged by an irregular pattern that closely follows the contours of the hair follicles. This heals with a scar that is hard to see.
