Brow Lift

What Is a Brow Lift?

As we age, the skin on our forehead and above our eyebrows begins to sag. That slight drooping can give the impression that you’re tired, sad, even angry. But a brow lift can bring back the real you.

A brow lift softens forehead wrinkles and frown lines, tightens the skin across the brow, and gives you a more relaxed, youthful appearance.

The “coronal” brow lift involves one continuous incision across the scalp, beginning above each ear. The scarring is hidden within the hairline. Recent advances in endoscopic technology have enabled a new approach, an “endoscopic” brow lift. In this brow lift, Dr. Saltz makes a few small incisions along the scalp line and inserts an endoscope (a small camera on the end of a thin tube) into one incision and a surgical tool into another, allowing him to see exactly what he is working on. Scarring is minimal with the endoscopic brow lift.

If you feel that your sagging skin on your forehead and above your eyebrows is making you look old and tired, or if you’d like to erase those creases on your forehead, a brow lift could be a good solution. Good candidates for the procedure are in good overall physical health and have realistic expectations for the procedure. As with all cosmetic surgeries, you should do some research on your own before your consultation with Dr. Saltz.

A brow lift is normally performed under local anesthetic, but if you prefer you can request general anesthetic. If Dr. Saltz is performing an endoscopic brow lift, he will make small incisions at the temples and along the scalp line. This will allow him to manipulate the tissues as needed with the visual aid of the endoscope. Obviously, an endoscopic brow lift is far less invasive than a coronal brow lift.

In a coronal brow life, a single incision is made along the hairline, spanning from ear to ear. The skin is then lifted, excess tissue is trimmed, and the skin is re-draped.

Yes. Specifically, a brow lift, by tightening the skin over the eyes and in the temple area, can improve your field of vision. You may notice that your field of vision feels wider and that your peripheral vision is clearer.

Brow lift surgery focuses on the uppermost area of the face. It does not address the age-related concerns that affect the lower region of the face, nor the eyes in some cases. To correct more significant cosmetic concerns, some people have a facelift or eyelid lift and brow lift concurrently. During your consultation, the surgeon will perform a thorough evaluation of your facial structure, your skin, and underlying tissues to determine the anticipated outcome of a personalized surgical plan. 

A descending brow line can push down on the upper eyelids, making them appear heavy and hooded. It is not uncommon for a person to mistake heavy eyelids for an actual eyelid problem. There are a few ways you can begin to identify if an eyelid lift or a brow lift would be right for you. One is to observe where your brow line sits on your forehead. They should lie right at or very near to the bony ridge over the eye. Another way to assess your eyelids and brows is to use fingers to gently raise your eyebrows to a position that looks natural. If your upper eyelids continue to look heavy and baggy, or you cannot see your eyelid crease, you may need an eyelid lift. In some cases, the best results are achieved by combining the brow lift with upper blepharoplasty so both the eyelids and the brows are lifted. 

After your surgery, your forehead will be taped and bandaged. A thin tube is also inserted to drain any excess fluid. You may have temporary fixation screws to hold the elevated brow in place.

There will be swelling and bruising and it could spread down into your cheeks and eye area. This should be gone in about a week to 10 days. For the first two days after your surgery, you’ll need to keep your head elevated to reduce the swelling. Ice packs will also help with swelling.

A coronal brow lift, due to the length of the incision, will require a more involved recovery. There will be more pain, so you will receive prescription pain medication. You may also experience more itching, particularly across the incision area. This can last for a few months. Numbness or tingling can also be present, but will ease over time.

Most patients can return to work within 10 days, but must avoid vigorous exercise and heavy lifting for three or four weeks.

No. The objective of the brow lift is to restore the proper height of the brows above the eyes. The surgeon uses the upper orbital rim as a guide for youthful brow placement, also keeping in mind the variations that exist between masculine and feminine facial anatomy. For example, women's brows tend to sit at the upper orbital rim. Men's brows, on the other hand, may sit just below that mark. The procedure may also subtly enhance the curve of the eyebrows. It lifts and trims muscle, fatty tissue, and the skin but does not disable the muscles. After your brow lift, you can expect to be able to make facial expressions just as you always have. 

The surgical brow lift achieves results that generally last several years. You may never need to repeat this procedure in the future. While surgery does not stop the clock on your appearance, it can significantly turn it back to a more youthful starting point. Your skincare and sun habits after your rejuvenating surgery can influence the ongoing resilience of your skin to potentially prolong the effects of surgery. If the signs of aging at some point become frustrating, you may achieve satisfying correction via nonsurgical modalities. This is not to say that you cannot repeat the surgical brow lift if you would like but that you shouldn't have to do so until a decade or more after your initial procedure. 

A brow lift can take 1 to 2 hours in the office. Because a mild sedative is administered, you may spend a brief amount of time in the office after your procedure is done so the team can monitor you. This time is much less than you would spend in recovery if you were to receive general anesthesia for your brow lift. You should have a loved one accompany you to our office so they can drive you home and stay with you for the remainder of the day.
