Elevate Your Brows
& Smooth Away Wrinkles

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, rejuvenates the upper face by lifting and tightening the skin around the eyebrows and forehead. Over time, factors such as aging, sun exposure, and genetics can cause the brows to droop and wrinkles to form on the forehead, contributing to a tired or aged appearance. A brow lift addresses these concerns by smoothing out forehead wrinkles, raising sagging eyebrows, and restoring a more youthful look to the face.

During a brow lift procedure, your surgeon will carefully lift and reposition the skin and underlying tissues of the forehead, removing excess tissue if necessary. This creates a more elevated and youthful brow position while also reducing the appearance of forehead lines and wrinkles. The result is a smoother forehead contour and a more rejuvenated appearance, helping you look as vibrant on the outside as you feel on the inside.

Brow Lift FAQs

Who is a good candidate for a brow lift?

You may be a good candidate for a brow lift if you have drooping or sagging eyebrows, noticeable forehead wrinkles, frown lines between the eyebrows, or excess skin hanging over the upper eyelids. The ideal candidates are in good overall health, have realistic expectations, and are looking to rejuvenate their appearance. During your consultation, Dr. Magill will evaluate your brows and review your medical history to determine your candidacy.

What happens during a brow lift procedure?

During a brow lift, Dr. Magill will make incisions either within the hairline or along the forehead creases, depending on the technique chosen. The skin and underlying tissues of the forehead will be lifted and repositioned to create a more elevated brow position and smoother forehead contour. Excess skin may be removed, and the incisions will be closed with sutures.

Is a brow lift a painful procedure?

While discomfort is common after any surgery, Dr. Magill will take steps to minimize pain during and after your brow lift. You may experience bruising, swelling, and mild discomfort in the days following the procedure, but these can be managed with pain medications. Most patients find that any discomfort subsides within a few days to a week after surgery.

What is recovery like after a brow lift?

The recovery period after a brow lift varies from person to person but generally involves a few days of downtime. You may experience bruising, swelling, and mild discomfort during the first week, which can be managed with pain medication and cold compresses. It’s important to follow Dr. Magill’s post-operative instructions carefully, which may include keeping your head elevated, avoiding strenuous activities, and attending follow-up appointments.

How long do the results of a brow lift last?

The results of a brow lift are long-lasting, although individual experiences may vary. While the aging process will continue, you can expect to enjoy the benefits of your brow lift for many years. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, protecting your skin from sun damage, and following a good skincare regimen can help prolong the results of your brow lift.

Will I have visible scars after a brow lift?

Dr. Magill takes great care to minimize scarring during a brow lift. The incisions are typically placed within the hairline or along the natural creases of the forehead, where they are well-hidden. Over time, any visible scars should fade and become less noticeable, especially with proper scar management techniques.
