What is a Brow/Forehead Lift?
A browlift, also known as a forehead lift, is an outpatient procedure that helps correct expression lines and the signs of aging in the upper part of the face by reducing the vertical creases, known as frown lines, between the eyebrows and raise the sagging brows which hood the upper eyelids.
In most cases, wrinkle lines develop horizontally across the forehead, on the bridge of the nose, and between the eyes over time; however, some people experience these problems when they’re young as a result of family genes. A brow/forehead lift repositions sagging eyebrows and removes forehead wrinkles for a fresher, uplifted appearance. Furthermore, this procedure can be performed in conjunction with other surgeries, such as a facelift or skin resurfacing.
Why Should I have a Brow/Forehead Lift?
Aging changes our facial expressions. A sagging, furrowed brow can make us look tired, worried, or even angry. Additionally, some people are genetically predisposed to a heavier, thicker brow, which gives them the appearance of a constant frown.
A brow lift addresses all of these issues by helping you achieve a naturally refreshed and more youthful appearance. With a brow lift, you will no longer appear constantly angry or concerned. Your eyes will appear brighter, and your self-confidence will rise dramatically knowing you look your best.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Brow/Forehead Lift?
A good candidate for a browlift is a person who is a non-smoker, in good general health, and has realistic expectations.
What Should I Expect During My Brow/Forehead Lift Consultation?
During your brow lift consultation with Dr. Sinha, be prepared to talk about your complete medical history, any prescription medications you are taking, including over-the-counter medications, and your tobacco and alcohol use. Additionally, you should be prepared to discuss your appearance goals.
Dr. Sinha will evaluate your overall general health, discuss your options, measure and photograph your face, and recommend a course of treatment. It is important to be truthful in your medical history discussion, ask questions, and fully understand your upcoming brow lift procedure. It is also common to feel a certain measure of anxiety about your upcoming procedure.
Discuss any anxiety and concerns you may be feeling with Dr. Sinha during your consultation. During your consultation, Dr. Sinha will also advise you to make plans for someone to drive you home after you leave the hospital and stay with you at home for, at least, the first night of your brow lift recovery.
What Should I Do Before My Brow/Forehead Lift?
Before your brow lift, Dr. Sinha may advise you to: Stop smoking since smoking decreases blood flow in the skin and slows the healing process. Dr. Sinha will also advise you to avoid certain medications such as aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements, which can increase bleeding.
How Long Does Brow/Forehead Lift Surgery Take?
The duration of your surgery will depend on the type of brow lift you are receiving, as well as whether or not you are having another procedure performed at the same time as your brow lift.
How is Brow/Forehead Lift Surgery Performed?
Prior to surgery, you will be given anaesthesia either intravenously or under general anaesthesia. All brow lifts are considered endoscopic procedures, meaning small incisions are made behind the hairline. An endoscope is a specialized surgical telescope that is inserted to help visualize the forehead anatomy and to mark the small muscles that create the deep furrows in the forehead. The forehead and brows are elevated, and excess skin is removed.
The flap is then sutured. By using an endoscope and specialized instruments, the healing process is accelerated. Brow lift incisions are generally closed with sutures, skin adhesives, or special clips, and results appear within a few weeks as swelling and bruising subside revealing your smoother forehead skin and more youthful, rested appearance.
What Should I Expect Following My Brow/Forehead Lift Procedure?
Typically, patients experience very little pain following a brow lift, but it is not uncommon to feel slight discomfort, as well as a sensation of tightness across the forehead. During your brow lift recovery, your forehead may be taped, or your head may be loosely wrapped, to minimize swelling and bruising. A thin tube may be present to drain any excess fluids that collect under your skin.
Antibiotics may be prescribed for several days following surgery. Dr. Sinha will give you specific instructions that may include how to care for the surgical site, medications to take, any concerns to look for, and any follow up appointments. Dr. Sinha may also prescribe ice compresses and eye exercises to reduce swelling and regain mobility. Be prepared to keep your head elevated and perform limited exercises for the duration recommended by Dr. Sinha.
What Type of Recovery Should I Expect from My Brow/Forehead Lift?
Generally, the initial wound heals in 10 – 14 days, and your stitches will be removed about 2 weeks post-surgery. Swelling and some bruising may occur, which should subside within a few weeks, and even though you will look presentable after about 2 weeks, you will find that healing continues as the swelling subsides and the incision lines fade.
Generally, women can begin wearing cosmetics approximately two weeks after surgery. You can proceed with your normal daily activities within 1-2 weeks. It is important that your surgical incisions are not subjected to force, motion, or abrasion during your time of healing.
Generally, 1-2 days following surgery, showering is permitted. One week after surgery, you can return to a sedentary job. One to two weeks following surgery, you may return to driving if you have full mobility and are not taking prescription medications. Two to four weeks after surgery you may begin exercising again.
What about Complications?
Brow lift incision points typically heal extremely well, and complications from an endoscopic brow lift are rare. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, fewer than 1% of endoscopic brow lift patients report any complications. However, there are some common side effects after an endoscopic forehead lift that includes forehead discomfort (treated with medication), swelling (managed with head elevation) and numbness. None of these effects typically last for longer than one week.
What is the Average Cost of a Brow/Forehead Lift?
In general, you can expect to pay approximately $3,600for a brow/forehead lift. However, this average cost does not include anaesthesia, operating room facilities, or other related expenses. Your insurance company may pay for a portion of the cost of surgery if the procedure is performed as a result of visual impairment.
Because every insurance carrier is different, it is recommended that you check with your insurance company to determine the level of coverage. Please remember, when choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon, the surgeon’s experience and your comfort and trust in the surgeon is just as important as the cost of the surgery.
