What is a Brow Lift?

A Brow Lift, also referred to as an eyebrow lift or forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that raises your eyebrows to reduce wrinkles and frown lines while lifting sagging skin.

The main target of this procedure is to correct certain cumulative effects on the facial anatomy that are associated with aging. This is achieved by releasing and repositioning the muscles and skin of the forehead that create drooping eyebrows, forehead furrows, and frown lines in the upper facial area.

When performing a brow lift, Dr. Savannah Moon & Dr. Stephanie Scurci will tighten up your facial skin, reposition your eyebrow arch to a more elevated and flattering position, and remove forehead wrinkles.

A Brow Lift often includes one or more of these different techniques:

Classic Lift

Also called a Pretrichial (hairline) incision, this classic lift makes an aesthetically “friendly” incision along the hairline to create a powerful and long-lasting look. This procedure is ideal for patients who want to lift their eyebrows while shortening the forehead by removing a strip of skin and underlying tissue along the incision.

By shortening the forehead, your hairline will be lowered – which is ideal for those with a high forehead. This procedure lifts everything upwards from your eyebrows, even addressing the shape and symmetry of your brow shape and symmetry.

Temporal Brow Lift

This technique is similar to a Classic Lift but with more minimal incisions. It is sometimes called a Mini Brow Lift or Lateral Brow Lift Incisions are made in the hairline near the temples allowing the surgeon to target lifting of the lateral brow primarily. Good candidates for a temporal brow lift have good positioning of their medial brow and drooping of their lateral brow. Because of the more minimal approach, patients tend to experience and quicker recovery and less downtime.

Coronal Lift

A Coronal brow lift is like the classic lift, except the incision is made on the crown of your head, further back in the hairline. While this method will hide the incision well, it will increase the height of the forehead which may not be best for some patients.

Direct Brow Lift

Sometimes called a mid-forehead Lift or a “Gull Wing” Lift, a direct Brow Lift removes a section of skin and underlying tissue above the eyebrows. This procedure is best for a patient with a severely drooping brow and significant forehead wrinkles where your surgeon can naturally hide the incision. It is preferred for patients with an extremely thin or balding hairline.

Endoscopic Lift

The Endoscopic Lift is a very popular technique that only requires five small incisions that are hidden in the hairline, leaving no visible scar.

This procedure can lift everything from the hairline to the eyebrows. It tightens and smoothes the entire forehead while lifting the eyebrow area to “open up” your upper face. Eyebrow shape and asymmetry can also be addressed with this type of lift.

This type of lift may not be ideal for someone with severe brow descent or heavy skin, and may not be as long-lasting a lift as the Classic Lift.

Your surgeon will discuss the pros and cons of each technique so that you can determine which option is the best choice.

First Steps

What’s the first step?

If you are looking into a Brow Lift in Fort Lauderdale, FL, your first step is to schedule your consultation with highly reputed plastic surgeons, Dr. Savannah Moon & Dr. Stephanie Scurci. During the appointment, you can ask questions about the procedure, discuss your aesthetic goals, and have your surgeon examine your face and forehead. She will also ask you some questions about your medical history to create a personalized treatment plan that integrates your aesthetic preferences, individual needs, and desired results.

Using the information she collects, your surgeon will then create your surgical plan, which will include the techniques she plans on using, the anesthesia, and every other aspect of the procedure. If you are satisfied with the plan, you will meet with our Patient Coordinator to schedule your surgery. You will also be provided with some instructions to promote a higher potential of having a smooth surgery and recovery.


What to expect on the day of Brow Lift surgery

On the day of your surgery at Himmarshee Plastic Surgery in Fort Lauderdale, FL, after meeting with your surgeon and going over your procedure one more time, you will be administered general anesthesia so your brow lift procedure is more tolerable. In certain cases and with prior discussion, this procedure can also be performed under local anesthesia.

Once you are sedated, your surgeon will begin your surgery using the techniques that were discussed during the consultation.

A Brow Lift will typically take a few hours to perform the procedure, depending on the techniques your surgeon uses and the extent of the outcome you are looking to achieve.

Brow Lift Recovery

Your Brow Lift will be an outpatient procedure, which means most patients will be able to return home with the help of a family member or friend.. There will be some expected mild swelling and bruising, which should subside over the coming days. You will be provided post-operative instructions that will help make your recovery as easy and successful as possible.

During the first five days after your procedure, you are encouraged to have minimal activity, routinely apply ice to your forehead, and keep your head elevated to reduce the amount of swelling.

You may go on some light walks, as well as up and down stairs, on the first day post-surgery. If you are feeling well enough, you could potentially return to work in about 10 days, but you should plan on taking a few weeks off and expect to return to full activity only starting three weeks from the procedure.

As with all surgical procedures, there is some scarring from a brow lift procedure. However,  the incisions are designed such that the scars will be hidden within or at the hairline.
