Forehead Lift (Browlift), including Endoscopy

A forehead lift, or browlift, can revitalize your drooping or lined forehead, the area between the eyebrows and, to some extent, the upper eyelids and lateral eye area helping you to look less angry, sad or tired. We can:

  • remove or alter the muscles between your eyes, smoothing the lines between the eyebrows,
  • release the forces pulling your brows down raising your eyebrows for a more youthful appearance,
  • minimize the creases in the forehead,
  • remove hooding from the upper eyelids,
  • and reduce the lateral “crow’s feet” beside the eyes.

You can combine the procedure with other operations such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and facelift to improve the look of your eyes and other areas of your face.  However, if the descent of your brow, which pushes the brow tissue into the upper eyelid areas, is the main cause of your upper eyelid problem, then you may need only the browlift to correct both the brow and the upper eyelids.

We generally perform the full procedure in a minimally invasive manner, using four or five short incisions hidden in the hair, and an endoscope, a slim instrument with a camera on the end. This reduces scars, hair loss and numbness and generally provides you excellent improvement and fast recovery while maintaining a natural appearance. We actually strive to place your eyebrows where you naturally hold them, but without having to use the wrinkle causing muscles of the forehead to do so. You should be able to return to most activities in a few days with minimal, or easily concealed bruising. For those not needing a total browlift, a modification using only lateral incisions, again, hidden in the hair, can provide excellent correction of the more lateral problems. There are also modifications for those with a high hairline, including elevation of the brow through a blepharoplasty incision.
