Brow Lift

Gravity and collagen loss can lead to drooping brows and a sagging, wrinkled forehead. A forehead lift can tighten loose skin and underlying structures to rejuvenate your brow area. If your brows make your eyes look hooded or you have deep creases across your forehead, this procedure can make you look young again.

What is a Forehead or Brow Lift?

A forehead or brow lift is a surgical procedure that lifts and tightens the forehead and eyebrows. This can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin in the forehead and upper face. Dr. Coville will customize your procedure to meet your specific needs and goals. He performs several types of brow lifts, including the minimally invasive endoscopic technique.

How Do I Know if I Need a Forehead Lift? 

You may need a forehead lift if you have wrinkles, a sagging forehead, or drooping brows. A forehead lift can correct sagging skin in the forehead and upper face that makes you look tired, angry, or older than you feel. 

Not everyone who has these issues will need or want a forehead lift. Other options, such as injectable treatments like Botox®, may work for you. A fully- trained and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Coville can help you determine whether a forehead lift is the right choice for you during an initial consultation.

How Does a Forehead Lift Work? 

Dr. Coville customizes each forehead or brow lift to ensure your best results. He carefully considers each aspect of the procedure before choosing the best method for you. 

Endoscopic Brow Lift

An endoscopic forehead lift uses three small incisions hidden within the hairline. Dr. Coville inserts tiny endoscopic tools to perform the procedure. You can enjoy the full benefits of a brow lift without large incisions. 

Lateral Brow Lift

This procedure addresses the outer edges of the brows, lifting this part while leaving the inner edge in position. The result looks naturally youthful without visible scars, providing a subtle improvement that highlights your foundational beauty. 

Non-Surgical Brow Lift

If you have brow lines and wrinkles without significant loose skin, you may see dramatic results with Botox® or related products like Xeomin® and Dysport®. These injectables relax brow lines for a more youthful appearance.

What is Recovery Like From a Brow Lift?

Recovery from a forehead lift can vary depending on the specific technique used and the extent of the correction performed. Most people can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the first few days following the procedure.

You will need to take some time off work and other activities to heal fully. Avoid strenuous activity or exercise for several weeks after the procedure, and follow all of Dr. Coville’s instructions for post-operative care to ensure the best possible results.

How Much is a Forehead Lift?

The cost of a forehead lift can vary depending on a variety of factors. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports cost of a forehead lift at about $3,500. However, this average does not include all fees and expenses associated with the procedure, so we recommend a consultation for a better estimate.
