Brow Lift

As you age, the stresses of everyday life can begin to show on your face in the form of forehead creases, vertical frown lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. The effects of aging can take away from the vibrancy in your eyes and make you appear older, tired or even unhappy. A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure that can reposition a low or sagging brow. By raising your eyebrows to a more youthful position, forehead creases and “frown lines” are reduced and smoothed leaving you with a younger and more alert appearance.

An eyebrow lift is performed under general anesthesia.

Frequently Asked Questions

For information about your personalized consultation, how to prepare for your upcoming procedure and what to expect during recovery, please visit our Patient Resources page.

Is a brow lift right for me?

If you feel like you could benefit from a raised and smoother forehead, the Brow lift surgery may be the right procedure for you. Brow lift surgery is usually performed on adult men and women who have healthy facial tissue and muscles and have realistic goals for improvement of the forehead and brow area. As with all cosmetic surgeries, this is a very personal decision and you should only do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.

Good candidates are:

  • Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
  • Non-smokers
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for a brow lift

Where are the incisions made during a forehead lift?

Dr. Vartany will make small incisions within the hairline. This allows the tissue and muscle beneath the skin to be repositioned, altered, or removed, correcting the source of visible creases and furrows in the forehead. The incision lines are well concealed within the hair or natural contours of the face unless they are placed at the hairline to shorten the forehead. Results appear gradually as swelling and bruising subside to reveal smoother forehead skin and a more youthful, restful appearance.

An alternative brow lift technique is the Coronal Brow Lift. The Coronal Brow Lift can pinpoint specific regions of the brow to correct. This technique involves an incision from ear to ear, lifting the forehead and removing excess skin from the scalp. Recovery time is often longer than the typical brow lift due to the size of the incision.

Are there additional instructions for my eyebrow lift recovery?

Bruising typically takes 7-10 days to resolve. Incision lines will continue to heal for several weeks as the swelling dissipates and incision lines refine and fade. Cosmetics may be used, once the staples are removed, to camouflage bruising and healing incisions.

You may gently wash your face and hair 3 days after surgery. Be gentle when washing near the incision line. Pat the incisions dry and allow your hair to dry naturally. Be careful when combing through your hair.

Staples will be removed, in the office, 6-8 days after surgery.

Keep your head elevated above your heart for 2 weeks after surgery.

Avoid getting overheated, sunbathing, exercise, and/or any strenuous activity that could potentially elevate your heart rate or blood pressure for 2 weeks after surgery.

How much time should I take off of work?

You will need to allow for about 7 days off from work for this procedure.

What are some procedures that may complement a forehead lift?

Important facts about the safety and risks of a brow lift

Dr. Vartany will explain, in detail, the risks associated with a brow lift. It will be your personal choice in determining if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications are acceptable.

You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure and any risks or potential complications.

Some risks include:

  • Unfavorable scarring
  • Bleeding (hematoma)
  • Infection
  • Poor wound healing
  • Anesthesia risks
  • Blood clots
  • Correctable hair loss at the incisions
  • Elevated hairline
  • Facial nerve injury with weakness or paralysis
  • Facial asymmetry
  • Skin loss
  • Numbness or other changes in skin sensation or intense itching
  • Changes in skin sensation
  • Eye irritation or dryness
  • Eyelid disorders that involve abnormal position of the upper eyelids (eyelid ptosis), loose eyelid skin, or abnormal laxness of the lower eyelid (ectropion) can coexist with sagging forehead and eyebrow structures; Brow lift surgery will not correct these disorders; additional surgery may be required
  • Fluid accumulation
  • Pain, which may persist
  • Skin contour irregularities
  • Skin discoloration and swelling
  • Sutures may spontaneously surface through the skin, become visible, or produce irritation that require removal
  • Possibility of revision surgery

Dr. Vartany is just amazing! He has performed my breast lift and breast augmentation and I absolutely love it!! He is so kind, patient, and very detail orientated. He answered all my questions and was very realistic about what the outcome was going to be like. He doesn't sell you a story, he explains how each body type is different and even if you do the same surgery the results can be different from person to person. His entire staff is wonderful as well. Front desk was welcoming and friendly, and the surgery nurses very caring and thoughtful. Surgery went so smooth, it felt like I just went to sleep and woke up. No extra commotion. They called me the next day to see how I was doing and at my post-op everyone was just very attentive. Overall, it was a great experience!!! I recommend that Dr. Vartany to anyone who wants a beautiful natural look.

Get laser hair removal by time block instead of by area. Get more areas covered for your money. Laser facial is awesome, got rid of my preggo spots and dark freckles!

One of the best doctors around. I had three procedures on my nose and my eyes.For years I was skeptical to go under knife as I am a 56 years old male with some underling heart problems. The surgery was practically painless and to my wonder recovery was super fast. On cosmetic side, he did exactly what I asked for, no more, no less. The entire staff are super polite and professional.
