What is Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)?

During a forehead lift, the tissues, and muscles responsible for the drooping, creases and lines on a person’s brow are altered or removed, resulting in raised eyebrows, a smoother forehead and fewer frown lines. A brow lift is designed to restore the area above your eyes to a more refreshed and youthful visage. This incredibly popular procedure pumps up your drooping brows and noticeably improves the creases and horizontal lines that may be making you appear to be tired, angry or sad, even when you are not.

We highly recommend scheduling your consultation now with Dr. Schwartz to see if a brow lift is right for you.

Dr. Schwartz and his staff will make you feel welcome and comfortable, so schedule your consultation now and let us help you look amazing.

Elements of a Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)

Dr. Schwartz is genuinely personable and has an excellent bedside manner. He will use your consultation to give you the information you need about the different elements of a brow lift. You may opt for a conventional surgical procedure, in which an incision is covered by the hairline. Or Dr. Schwartz may recommend that you opt for the endoscopic method, which uses an endoscope for minimal incisions. Both types of procedures are quite common and result in a smoother and more youthful-looking forehead.

What Is a Brow Lift (Forehead Lift) Procedure?

For a classic forehead lift, prior to your operation, you will have rubber bands tied in place in your hair where the incisions will be made. While you will not need to have your head shaved, you may need to have the hair trimmed that is growing directly in front of the incision area. A coronal incision, which starts at ear level and runs around the top of the forehead to the other ear in a headphone-like pattern, is used for most classic forehead lift patients and is typically made behind the hairline, making the scar invisible. If you have a high or receding hairline, Dr. Schwartz may make the incision right at the hairline to avoid raising your forehead further, which is something he will discuss with you during your consultation. While the incision is being made, the forehead skin is gently lifted up, allowing for the removal of underlying tissue. The eyebrows may be elevated as well, and any excess skin at the point of the incision is carefully trimmed away to create a much smoother and refreshingly youthful appearance. Afterward, your incision is closed with clips or stitches, your hair and face are cleaned, and the rubber bands in your hair will be removed. Dr. Schwartz may place gauze padding over the incision and bandage your head.

If Dr. Schwartz is doing an endoscopic forehead lift, then the preparation steps for the classic forehead lift and the endoscopic forehead lift are virtually the same, but instead of undergoing a single long coronal incision, you will have three to five short scalp incisions, each of which will be less than an inch long. A pen-like camera device, known as an endoscope, is then inserted into one of the incisions to provide Dr. Schwartz with a clear view of the facial tissues and muscles underneath the skin. Another instrument is inserted through a different incision to lift the forehead skin and allow for the underlying tissues and muscles to be altered or removed. The eyebrows may be lifted as well and secured into their raised position via sutures beneath the skin or temporary screws inserted behind the hairline. When the procedure is finished, the incisions are closed with clips or stitches and the entire area is washed. Gauze or a bandage wrap may be placed over the incisions as well.

How Long Is The Recovery After a Brow Lift (Forehead Lift) Procedure?

For those patients who undergo a classic forehead lift, they may have a significantly different experience immediately following surgery than a patient who had an endoscopic procedure. In addition to numbness, patients who undergo the classic forehead lift can experience some temporary discomfort along the incision area, which Dr. Schwartz will help you manage with prescription medication. As a preventative measure, headache-prone patients may be given additional local anesthesia, which lasts longer and increases post-operative fatigue. Some patients will be required to elevate their heads for up to three days following their surgery to minimize swelling in the eyes and cheeks, which typically begins to disappear after one week. Numbness is often replaced by itching on the top of the scalp as a patient’s nerves heal. If Dr. Schwartz uses bandages, they will be removed in one or two days after your surgery. Staples or stitches will be removed approximately two weeks later. Normal hair growth usually resumes in less than three months.

Patients who undergo an endoscopic forehead lift may experience some numbness, mild swelling, and discomfort around the incision area. Discomfort at the incision sites is typically minimal and, if necessary, can be controlled with prescription medication. Endoscopic patients usually feel less of an itching sensation on their scalp as well. While the temporary fixation screws are usually removed within two weeks, Dr. Schwartz removes staples or stitches within one week.
