Brow Lift

A brow lift is a surgical procedure used to permanently restore the positioning of low or heavy eyebrows. A brow lift will improve the appearance of drooping brows, forehead wrinkles, upper eyelid hooding, and crow's feet.

There are several types of brow lift surgery. Patients will need to discuss their individual concerns with an Appearance Center board certified cosmetic surgeon before the appropriate procedure is selected. Most commonly, incisions will be made somewhere in the scalp or hair line, and the forehead and brow muscles will be repositioned accordingly. 

Yes. There are a few different mechanisms our Orange County facial plastic surgeons use in order to achieve the results discussed in consultation. You will want to speak with your cosmetic surgeon to determine which procedure is best suited for your cosmetic needs. 


In this procedure the surgeon makes a few small incisions in the hair line to elevate the brow. When patients undergo an endoscopic brow lift, the muscle that once caused wrinkles between the eyebrows can be removed. 


In this procedure two small incisions are made on both sides of the hairline or within the hair-bearing scalp. 


A coronal brow lift incision extends across the entire scalp. This is highly effective in correcting severe brow drooping, particularly of the medial brow. One disadvantage of a coronal brow lift is the size of the incision, which requires a longer recovery period. A possible complication is the loss of sensation in the posterior scalp region.


A temporal brow lifts the outer corner of the eyes, and dramatically improves hooding of the upper eyelid, which makes patients look tired or sad. This is also an excellent way to remove crow's feet that are a direct result of excess skin.

Patients will experience mild to moderate bruising and swelling for 10 -14 days. They should not undergo heavy or rigorous activity during this time. Patients will be given specific aftercare instructions which will include information on bandaging, icing, and caring for sutures.
