A brow lift also known as a forehead lift targets wrinkles and sagging skin above the eyebrows. This surgical technique can reduce the visible signs of aging by improving the appearance of deep lines on the forehead. Brow lifts are able to lift and smooth this problem area and raise the eyebrows to a more naturally elevated position on the forehead.

How involved is the brow lift procedure?
Brow lift surgery is performed with general anesthesia, and takes about two hours. This procedure may be performed as either an endoscopic or open surgery, which determines the incision pattern needed. Endoscopic surgery is performed through a small incision using a camera attachment and specialized surgical tools, while an open brow lift requires a slightly larger incision. During the surgery, the tissue ois lifted, sculpted, and trimmed to create a smoother forehead appearance. The muscles causing frown lines can be loosened to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Finally, the incisions are closed with sutures.
How long is the recovery after a forehead lift?
Following forehead lift surgery, most West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens area patients experience some degree of bruising, swelling, and soreness. Skin numbness or tightness are also common. These side effects may last up to two weeks. Most patients are back to work within two weeks, although vigorous exercise and sun exposure should be avoided for a month or more.
