A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that elevates the position of the eyebrows. It addresses wrinkles, sagging brows, and a tired or angry facial expression.

Reasons for a Brow Lift

  • Reduce forehead wrinkles and lines:** Horizontal creases across the forehead and frown lines between the brows can be smoothed.
  • Lift sagging eyebrows: Drooping brows can obstruct vision and create a tired or grumpy appearance. Lifting them opens up the upper eyelids and creates a more youthful look.
  • Improve facial aesthetics: Brow lift can enhance facial proportions and create a more balanced appearance.

Types of Brow Lifts

  • Endoscopic Brow Lift: Minimally invasive procedure using a small camera and specialized instruments inserted through tiny incisions in the scalp. This technique leaves minimal scarring.
  • Coronal Brow Lift: Traditional technique with a larger incision made across the top of the head from ear to ear. It allows for more extensive lifting and adjustment of tissues.


The specific technique depends on the surgeon’s choice and your desired outcome. Generally, the surgeon loosens and repositions the underlying tissues and muscles that contribute to brow position. Excess skin may also be removed to tighten the forehead area.


  • Reduces wrinkles and smooths the forehead
  • Lifts sagging brows for a more youthful appearance
  • Improves visibility and creates a brighter expression
  • Can boost self-confidence


  • Surgical procedure with potential risks like infection, bleeding, and scarring.
  • Requires recovery time with limitations on activity.
  • Temporary bruising, swelling, and discomfort are common.
  • Unnatural appearance if brow position is excessively elevated.


  • Botox injections Can temporarily relax frown lines and elevate brows, but effects are not as dramatic or long-lasting as surgery.
  • Fillers: Injected substances like hyaluronic acid can plump wrinkles and create a smoother appearance, but don’t address sagging brows.
  • Non-surgical skin tightening procedures: Treatments like laser therapy may offer some tightening effects, but results are usually subtle.

Recovery Time

  • Typically 1-2 weeks for initial healing, with limitations on activity and strenuous movement.
  • Swelling and bruising may subside over several weeks.
  • Full recovery with unrestricted movement can take up to 4-6 weeks.
