Your forehead is probably one of the most expressive facial features, playing a significant role in nonverbal communication, particularly of your mood, and thoughts. However, deep furrows can often create permanent frown, making you look older, tired, and angry. Offered at Unique Aesthetic Center, a brow lift can be an effective cosmetic procedure for rejuvenating your appearance and it is generally performed in conjunction with other procedures.

Brow lift procedure
There are two main types of brow lifts:
Coronal brow lift – This procedure is performed through an incision just above the hairline to help reduce the amount of visible scarring.
Endoscopic brow lift – This procedure involves four small incisions. Then, an endoscope is inserted in the forehead tissues to free the attachments and raise the eyebrows to a more youthful position.
A brow lift is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. Following surgery, patients should keep their heads elevated for several days and may return to work in 7 to 10 days. It’s essential you follow instructions provided by your surgeon, which may include:
Applying cold packs to reduce swelling
Sleeping on your back with your head raised
Don’t miss follow up visits
Expect tightness, discomfort, swelling, and some bruising
May drive in two to three weeks
May resume regular activities within a month
Your initial brow lift consultation
During your initial consultation, your plastic surgeon will assess your wellbeing while also explaining the techniques available for the brow lift procedure. The different surgical techniques will be demonstrated. After the method has been chosen, patients are asked to fill out all pre-operative responsibilities such as blood work, drug testing, and physical examination. Patients are advised to stop smoking and discontinue all blood thinners before surgery.
Brow Lift procedure key Faqs
How much does a brow lift cost?
The average cost of a brow lift is $3,500, which can vary depending on your surgeon’s skill and experience. Brow lift is a cosmetic procedure, so your insurance may not cover it, but we have several financing plans available.
At what age can I have a brow lift?
Women may do this procedure as early as their late twenties, and men in their later forties.
Are there any risks associated with a brow lift?
It’s very uncommon for patients to experience any significant risks or complications from a brow lift. This procedure doesn’t involve any major issues. But just like any other cosmetic procedure, there are some complications you should be aware of, which will be explained in more details during your initial consultation:
Problems with anesthesia
Bleeding, infection, and scarring
Dissatisfaction with the results
Hematoma or seroma
To reduce the risks, patients should follow all instructions provided by the surgeon so that they will not encounter any health issues along the way that may lead to altered results.
What type of anesthesia is used?
Local anesthesia and sedation are used. However, general anesthesia is required most of the time, based on what you want to accomplish.
How painful is the procedure?
Since anesthesia is used, the procedure itself is painless. However, you will experience some swelling and tightness for a week. Most of our patients require little medication to alleviate any discomfort experienced during recovery.
Are there any scars left after a brow lift?
This procedure involves small incisions at the top of the forehead; therefore, the hair will conceal it.
What results can I expect?
The results are immediate. Your face will look refreshed and younger once the swelling has resolved and the incisions lines fade. While the results are permanent, a healthy lifestyle and sun protection will help you keep the results for many years to come.
Can I combine a brow lift and a facelift?
Yes. Patients often combine this procedure since both surplus eyelid skin and brow drop are experienced at the same time.
