Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)

Surgical Face Brow Lift

The brow and forehead are often among the first areas to show signs of aging. Loss of skin elasticity, exposure to the 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, taking years off of your appearance.

What is a Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)

A brow lift is a cosmetic procedure to rejuvenate the forehead area by tightening sagging skin and reducing wrinkles. Dr. Langdon performs the most effective brow lift technique to give you the best anti-aging results with minimal downtime.

With a forehead lift, many upper facial wrinkles improve for years, 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 a brow lift include:

  • Improves brow position
  • Reduces frown lines
  • Reduces horizontal forehead wrinkles
  • Reduces excess skin of upper eyelids
  • Improves crow’s feet wrinkles
  • Creates a more youthful and refreshed appearance

Frequently Asked Questions

At The Langdon Center, we prioritize using the latest and most innovative surgical methods that give our patients the best results. Dr. Langdon uses the most effective approach to the brow lift, the subcutaneous lateral brow lift. This procedure is performed with local anesthesia and typically takes less than two hours.

Dr. Langdon prefers a simplified subcutaneous brow lift because of its superior results and safety. Because the eyebrows are a cutaneous feature (part of the skin), they are more reliably lifted with a superficial (subcutaneous) release compared to surgery at deeper levels. A single skin incision is made high in the lateral scalp/temple area on each side. The less-invasive subcutaneous technique carries much less risk of side effects such as temporary scalp numbness.

After a brow lift, patients can expect swelling and bruising to last approximately seven days following surgery. Swelling and bruising may be present in the cheek, eye, and forehead areas. Some patients may also have numbness and itching at the incision sites as these areas begin to heal.

For most patients, recovery time will not exceed 7-10 days. Dr. Langdon will advise you on what to expect after surgery, post-operative care, and when you can continue normal activities. You may need to wait longer to resume strenuous exercise.

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.

A brow lift offers patients exceptional anti-aging benefits for their appearance, helping them look rejuvenated and feel more confident. Unlike non-surgical alternatives, brow lift surgery offers long-lasting results that will keep you looking younger for years to come. For many patients, the results of a brow lift last a decade or more.

Your skin will continue to age, so new wrinkles and sagging may gradually develop over the years. Taking care of your skin to boost its health and elasticity can help delay these signs of aging and preserve your brow lift results. 

Consider incorporating medical-grade skincare products into your regimen to keep your skin firm and youthful. The Langdon Center also offers numerous non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments that can boost collagen production, tighten the skin, and diminish or help delay signs of aging. Giving your skin this extra care can help extend the results of your brow lift.

The forehead lift is particularly well suited for patients with sagging eyebrows, deep horizontal creases in the forehead, or frown lines between the eyebrows. Ideal candidates are physically healthy, have realistic expectations for the procedure, and don’t have naturally high-set eyebrows. 

During your consultation, Dr. Langdon will evaluate your goals and concerns to determine if a brow lift is right for you. Patients with wrinkles and other aging concerns around their eyes may also benefit from blepharoplasty, and some patients have their brow lift combined with a facelift for comprehensive results.
