(Forehead Lift) at The Langdon Center in Guilford
The brow and forehead are often one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Loss of skin elasticity, exposure to sun, and overactive frown and forehead muscles all contribute to the aging process, resulting in frown lines, forehead wrinkles and heaviness of the eyebrows.
The forehead lift is a remarkable procedure that corrects each of these problems at once. With a forehead lift, many of the upper facial wrinkles are improved forever, compared to the temporary results of Botox injections. These include the frown lines (between the eyebrows), the crow’s feet wrinkles (in the temple area) and the horizontal forehead wrinkles.
Benefits of Brow Lift include:
- Improves brow position
- Reduces excess skin of upper eyelids
- Minimizes frown lines
- Improves crow’s feet wrinkles
- Reduces horizontal forehead wrinkles
- Creates a more youthful and refreshed appearance

Common Questions & Answers About Brow Lift
What is a Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)?
At The Langdon Center the newest approach to the forehead lift, endoscopic surgery, is used. Endoscopic surgery is the least invasive technique in cosmetic surgery. The endoscope is a sophisticated miniature optical telescope that gives the surgeon a “beneath the skin” view on a video monitor. Small incisions are made in the scalp just above the hairline to allow placement of the endoscope and of surgical instruments. The brow depressor muscles are inactivated and the forehead tissue is loosened to enable lifting. In the forehead, the lifting occurs naturally through normal action of the frontalis (forehead) muscle and is facilitated by fixation with the Endotine bioabsorbable device. In the temple, as in a face-lift, the fascia is pulled to a higher level using sutures.
Althought this technique may require more surgery time, it is less invasive and results in a smaller chance of temporary scalp numbness.
A more limited Temple Lift can be performed without the need for an endoscope. This procedure accomplishes the same lifting of the lateral brows and does not address frown muscle activity.
Who is the best candidate for Brow Lift Surgery?
The Forehead Lift is particularly well suited for physically healthy patients who have sagging eyebrows, deep horizontal creases in the forehead or frown lines between the eyebrows.
How long does a Brow Lift take to perform?
Treatment times vary from patient to patient but typically the Brow Lift is performed within a few hours.
What is the recovery like?
After a Brow Lift surgery, patients will experience swelling and bruising lasting approximately 10 days following surgery. Swelling and bruising may be present in the cheek, eye and forehead area. Numbness and itching may be present at the incision sites as these areas begin to heal.
For most patients, recovery time will not exceed one week. Dr. Langdon will advise you on what to expect after surgery, post-operative care and when you can resume normal activities.
What are the complications of a Brow Lift surgery?
Every surgical procedure carries certain risks and the potential for complications. The potential complications associated with the Brow Lift procedure may include the following: bruising, swelling, sensitivity to anesthesia, infection, nerve injury and poor healing.
How much does a Brow Lift cost?
Every person’s situation is unique and will require a consultation. Please contact The Langdon Center to schedule a consultation by calling 844-551-9880 or click here to contact us.

“Good explanations given, very responsive office team. Two weeks post op, a handyman I use regularly asked ‘What did you do.’ I responded ‘why.’ He said’ because you look good, really good!’ While scrutinizing my face. I responded that I must just be very well rested lately. One-week post op, I was surprised and thrilled that I could look up to the ceiling and see it without having to raise my head. The ‘hoods’ on my eyes were gone so no longer obstructed my vision. Because I chose the brow lift vs the blephoroplasy, there areas no visible incision. I also like that the visible appearance of the change is mild, so no one should guess I have had cosmetic surgery.” – Unknown
