What is a Brow Lift?

A surgical brow lift (sometimes known as a forehead lift or browplasty) is a popular cosmetic treatment that helps create a higher-brow position, which provides a younger look to the upper section of the face. A droopy brow can often create an angry or tired appearance. A browplasty surgically corrects a sagging brow to create a refreshed face by eliminating excess skin from the forehead while lifting the eyebrows. Dr. Ben Schultz, ABPS Certified, is a plastic surgeon in Baltimore, MD, who has completed the browplasty surgery on both women and men to create a younger appearance. Wrinkle fillers and relaxers are frequently performed in conjunction with a forehead lift for ideal results, creating a smoother and softer appearance.

How is a brow Lift performed?

Prior to the procedure, anesthesia will be used. This may be done through IV sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the nature of the surgery. The incision used during a brow lift is determined based on the degree of skin sag, if the forehead is addressed, and the appearance of the hairline.

Some of the many approaches to consider:

  • Traditional Incision
    Also called the open brow lift incision, this places the incision at the top of the head behind the hairline. This incision not only masks scarring but also allows a certain amount of controlled lifting throughout the procedure. The open incision is good for those with both a sagging brow and frown lines. This is the better incision for patients who are concerned about a receding hairline.
  • Trichophytic Incision
    The trichophytic incision is placed directly against the patient's hairline. A trichophytic incision allows significant lifting of the brow for patients who have a strong hairline with little risk for recession.
  • Lateral Brow Lift
    Also known as a temporal browplasty, the lateral method starts the incision in the hairline just above the temples. The lateral incision allows the outer areas of the brow to be treated and works well for sagging that is visible in the outer brow. A temporal brow lift also helps to treat crow’s feet.
  • Endoscopic Forehead Lift
    The endoscopic lift is a more modern method used in brow lift surgery. This method places several small incisions beyond the hairline and inserts a tool known as an endoscope, which is pushed to the eyebrow to release its attached tools. Using the camera of the endoscope, the brow tissue is repositioned with stitches to lift the brow into a better position.
