If the eyes are the windows to the soul, eyebrows are the frames that set off your eyes and contribute significantly to that all-important first impression. Brow lift surgery, also known as a forehead lift or browplasty, is a cosmetic procedure aimed at rejuvenating the appearance of the forehead and brow area. As one of the most visible areas of the face, the forehead and brows can show signs of aging over time, such as drooping skin, furrows, and wrinkles.

Brow lift surgery is designed to address these concerns by lifting and tightening the skin and muscles of the forehead, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Am I a Candidate for a Brow Lift?

If your brows are low or straight (not arched), you may be a good candidate. If you see furrowed brows, “11 lines,” or deep creases in your forehead, you might be a good candidate for a brow lift. The term “11 lines,” also called glabellar lines, denotes the vertical furrows that may emerge between the eyebrows due to stress, age, or both. Ideal candidates do not smoke and are committed to following all Dr. Weinfeld’s instructions.

Call (512) 253-2845 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Weinfeld. Learn more about brow lift surgery, and find out if you’re a good candidate for this procedure.

What Are the Benefits of Brow Lift Surgery?

Brow lift surgery offers numerous benefits for individuals seeking to rejuvenate the appearance of their upper face:

  • Elevated brow position: Brow lift surgery lifts the position of the eyebrows, reducing the appearance of sagging and creating a younger and more refreshed look.
  • Reduced or eliminated forehead wrinkles: By tightening the skin and muscles of the forehead, brow lift surgery can reduce the appearance of horizontal forehead wrinkles and furrows to restore a smoother and more rejuvenated appearance. The vertical oblique lines between the eyebrows, known as the “11 lines,” are also reduced or even eliminated.
  • Improved brow symmetry: Brow lift surgery can address asymmetry in the eyebrows for a balanced and harmonious relationship between the brows and other facial features.
  • Bigger eyes: Lifting the brows can open up the eye area, making the eyes appear bigger, alert, and more youthful.
  • Enhanced self-confidence: Achieving a more youthful-looking and rejuvenated upper face through brow lift surgery can boost self-esteem and confidence, leading to a more positive outlook.

How Is a Brow Lift Performed?

A successful surgery includes at least two steps: the consultation and the procedure itself.

The Consultation

Before scheduling your brow lift surgery, you’ll need to meet with Dr. Weinfeld for a consultation. After listening carefully to your concerns and goals, he will assess your health, medical history, and current health conditions to ensure you are a good candidate for this surgery.

Dr. Weinfeld also performs a comprehensive examination of your forehead and brow to assess skin elasticity, muscle tone, wrinkle depth, and the extent of laxity. He will explain the surgical technique best suited to achieve your desired results, whether it involves a traditional brow lift, endoscopic brow lift, or temporal brow lift, and answer any questions you have.

You will receive an accurate cost quote and detailed instructions on pre-operative preparations, including medication adjustments and lifestyle modifications.

Brow lift surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation, depending on the extent of the surgery and patient preference. The surgical technique can vary depending on the patient’s unique anatomy and aesthetic goals.

Endoscopic Brow Lift  – The Procedure

This technique is most commonly used in Dr. Weinfeld’s practice. In addition to repositioning the eyebrows, the forehead and the temples are also addressed. An endoscopic brow lift is a minimally invasive technique that involves making small incisions within the hair-bearing scalp just behind the hairline through which an endoscope and specialized instruments are inserted.

The endoscopic brow lift incisions are tiny and placed within the hair-bearing scalp just behind the hairlines. Their locations are carefully chosen to allow access to the majority of the upper third of the face.

Dr. Weinfeld uses an endoscope to visualize the underlying structures and perform the necessary adjustments to lift and tighten the brow. The forehead muscles are realigned to permit them to relax, smoothing the overlying skin.

While BOTOX® Cosmetic is excellent for temporary improvements, a brow lift naturally reduces and softens the horizontal forehead lines without the frozen mannequin look associated with the overuse of neuromodulator injectables.

While the endoscopic method is most often preferred, Dr. Weinfeld also uses the following techniques when appropriate:

  • Traditional Brow Lift: In a traditional brow lift, our surgeon makes discreet incisions within the hair-bearing scalp or along the natural creases of the forehead to minimize scarring. Excess skin is removed, and the underlying muscles and tissues are tightened and repositioned to lift the brows to a more youthful position.
  • Temporal Brow Lift: A temporal brow lift targets the outer corners of the brows and can be performed in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures. The surgeon makes small incisions within the hairline near the temples to access and lift the outer portion of the brows, creating a more lifted and youthful appearance.

After the procedure, incisions are closed with fine sutures, and dressings may be applied to promote healing.

Combining Other Cosmetic Procedures With Your Brow Lift

The comprehensive effect of the endoscopic brow lift on the upper third of the face compliments other cosmetic facial surgeries, such as the following:

  • Fat transfer: to restore volume to the cheek and midface areas
  • Facelift surgery: to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation
  • Upper lid blepharoplasty : for more complete upper face results
  • Combination of upper and lower eyelid surgery : for increased mid-to-upper face enhancement

What Is Recovery Like After Brow Lift Surgery?

Recovery after brow lift surgery usually involves mild to moderate swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be controlled with prescribed pain medication and a cold compress. Patients are typically advised to follow these five rules:

  • Follow all postoperative instructions closely.
  • Keep the head elevated to reduce swelling and promote healing.
  • Take prescribed medication as directed to manage pain.
  • Attend follow-up appointments with our surgeon so he can check your healing progress and address concerns.
  • Avoid strenuous activities, such as heavy lifting and bending over, until cleared by Dr. Weinfeld to resume.

What Results Can I Expect From a Brow Lift?

Long-lasting results can be accomplished with the endoscopic brow lift, including:

  • Youthful and natural brow position
  • Softening of forehead lines
  • Elevation of the temple, lateral upper eyelid, and the upper cheek
