Refresh Your Eyes & Forehead

A brow lift or forehead lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that rejuvenates the upper face by correcting sagging brows and smoothing out forehead wrinkles. As we age, the skin loses elasticity, and underlying tissues weaken, leading to the descent of the eyebrows and the formation of horizontal forehead lines. Additionally, repetitive facial expressions can exacerbate these concerns, creating a perpetually tired or aged appearance.

During a brow lift, the surgeon strategically lifts and repositions the eyebrows to a more youthful position, eliminating excess skin and tightening underlying muscles if necessary. This results in a more open and refreshed look to the eyes and forehead. Dr. Snider expertly performs brow lifts, combining her surgical expertise with a compassionate understanding of her patients’ aesthetic goals to achieve natural-looking, long-lasting results that enhance their confidence.

Brow Lift Treats:

  • Sagging or drooping eyebrows
  • Forehead wrinkles and creases
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines)
  • Hooding of the upper eyelids caused by low brows
  • Uneven or asymmetrical eyebrows
  • A perpetually tired or angry appearance due to brow descent
  • Excess skin on the forehead
  • Lack of definition in the brow arch

Brow Lift: The Recovery Process

After a brow lift, you can expect a recovery period during which you may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort around the surgical site. Your surgeon will provide specific post-operative instructions to manage these symptoms and promote healing. Please keep your head elevated and avoid strenuous activities during the initial days following surgery.

Typically, patients can return to work and normal daily activities within one to two weeks, although full recovery may take several weeks to months. As the swelling subsides and the healing process progresses, you’ll begin to see the final results of your brow lift. Please remember to attend all follow-up appointments with your surgeon to ensure proper healing.

Brow Lift FAQs

What is the ideal age for a brow lift?

The ideal age for a brow lift varies for each individual, but it’s typically performed on patients in their 40s to 60s who are experiencing noticeable signs of aging in the brow and forehead area.

Is a brow lift permanent?

While a brow lift can provide long-lasting results, it does not stop the natural aging process. Over time, some degree of sagging or wrinkling may occur again, but the effects of the procedure can be expected to last for several years.

Will a brow lift affect my hairline?

Most brow lift techniques do not alter the hairline. Dr. Snider will plan the incisions to minimize any changes to your natural hairline and ensure a discreet and natural-looking result.

How soon can I wear makeup after a brow lift?

You should avoid wearing makeup on or around the surgical site until your surgeon gives you clearance, usually one to two weeks after the surgery. Please follow Dr. Snider’s specific post-operative instructions to ensure proper healing and minimize the risk of complications.
