A brow lift can correct a drooping brow.

A brow lift or forehead surgery will not change your appearance but subtly shift your look to one that is refreshed. Imagine a smoother forehead with reduced frown lines and a brighter face that appears more alert and youthful. People will be quick to notice your pleasant appearance and even comment on how bright your eyes look. Only you will know it’s not your eyes at all, but a brow lift that erased the signs of aging.

As the aging process advances, the collagen-producing cells diminish and the long-term effects of gravity cause the underlying muscle to stretch, making the brow prone to sagging and wrinkles. This can cause the eyebrows to droop, giving the face a tired or sad appearance and make you appear older than you really are. In some cases a drooping brow can affect a person’s vision.

A brow lift or forehead lift corrects sagging brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a face appear angered, sad or fatigued. This procedure can also remedy a fleshy brow or one that is naturally lined that often gives the face a severe or aggressive look.

There are two types of brow lifts:

Endoscopic Brow Lift

Endoscopic Brow Lift - the most common type of procedure, the lift requires 5 small incisions hidden in the scalp and severing the muscles between the brows used for expression. The combination of tightening and relaxing smooths the forehead, trimming years and overly pronounced expression from your face.


Browpexy - performed most often in combination with an eyelid lift (upper blepharoplasty), this brow lift procedure returns the eye brows to an anatomical and appealing location on the face.
