What is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a procedure for elevating and smoothing the forehead area to give you a more refreshed or youthful appearance.

What Does a Brow Lift Treat?

A brow lift treats visible signs of aging in the forehead, like heaviness in the brow. If people are constantly saying you look tired or angry, no matter how well-rested or how good you feel, a brow lift can help you get the refreshed, relaxed appearance you used to have.

Is a Brow Lift For Me?

A brow lift is one of several procedures available to rejuvenate the forehead area. If you have the appearance of a heavy brow, a brow lift is the right procedure for you. However, some of the other signs of aging in the forehead area, such as wrinkling or a tired, angry appearance, might be better addressed with other treatments. For wrinkles in the forehead area, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections work very well, while sagging eyelids can be corrected with eyelid surgery.

What is Brow Lift Surgery Like?

There are several different types of brow lift procedures available. Which one is right for you depends on the degree of your facial aging and your anatomy. At Gayoso Plastic Surgery and MedSpa, we perform temporal brow lifts which means your incisions will be hidden in your hairline and at the temple. However, our brow lift surgery is unique to the patient’s desired goals, so you and your provider will discuss how we personalize your procedure for you.

Will a Brow Lift Make Me Look Surprised or Affect My Ability to Move My Forehead?

No. A brow lift elevates your forehead by a moderate amount to give you a more youthful, refreshed appearance, but the results are designed to be subtle and natural. You can see some of our brow lift surgery results in our Before and After Gallery.

The brow is lifted to prevent heaviness, not to prevent it from moving. You will still be able to move your forehead normally after your brow lift procedure.
