A forehead lift (brow lift) is a procedure performed on men or women that restores a more youthful, brightened look to the area above the eyes. The procedure helps to correct drooping brows and may improve wrinkle lines and furrows that can make you appear angry, sad or tired. Muscles and tissues that cause furrowing or drooping of the eyebrows may be altered to smooth the forehead and minimize frown lines. At the same time, the eyebrows are elevated and excess skin may be trimmed to help create a smoother, more relaxed appearance.
The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia or conscious sedation on an outpatient basis. Most patients return to their usual activities after one week.
