The brow area may sag as part of the aging process due to fat loss and skin laxity. The result is a brow area that hangs lower over the eyebrow bone, as well as wrinkles across the forehead and between the eyes. A forehead lift restores the brow area and lifts the eyebrows to a proper position.

What are the Benefits of a Forehead Lift?

  • Raises drooping eyebrows
  • Softens lines on the forehead and between the eyes
  • Helps the eyes look more open
  • May be combined with eyelid surgery

What is the Procedure for a Brow Lift?

Prior to your forehead lift, you should be in good health and able to tolerate general anesthesia without complications. The incision for the procedure is made behind the hairline in the scalp, so the scars are not visible to others once you heal. After making the incision, Dr. Barbour pulls the skin taut so that it drapes over the upper face area. The excess skin is trimmed, and the incisions are closed.

What Should I Expect After a Forehead Lift?

Expect to rest for the first 10 to 14 days after your brow lift. If you have a job that does not require strenuous activity, you may be able to return to work sooner, but only after Dr. Barbour clears you based on how well you heal. It may take up to 12 months for you to fully heal.
