Our foreheads are one of the first places to truly show signs of aging. While the rest of your body may remain youthful, your forehead can rapidly develop wrinkles, fine lines, or loose skin. When this happens, it can give you an appearance that is at odds with how lively you still feel inside. Fortunately, a brow lift can help you regain a rejuvenated appearance and a more youthful aesthetic.

This popular cosmetic procedure aims to restore the forehead area to a younger, fresher look with subtle adjustments.

What Is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift is a popular cosmetic procedure that aims to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on your forehead area. Also known as a forehead lift, this procedure has helped countless patients look younger and improve their confidence in their appearance. A proper brow lift carefully tightens the forehead skin to create a smoother look.
When done by an experienced surgeon with an eye for beauty, you can achieve a natural look that draws upon your innate features. At Dr. Brent’s practice, we avoid the artificial look that comes with over-tightening your features. Instead, we make subtle changes that deliver powerful, yet natural, results.
No two brow lifts are the same. Dr. Brent uses a variety of techniques to customize your procedure to best suit your needs. Every method he uses is at the forefront of cosmetic medicine, designed to deliver optimal results.
Dr. Brent’s top forehead lift techniques include:
- Coronal Brow Lift: The traditional method
- Minimally-Invasive Brow Lift: A lighter intensity brow lift for milder results
- Endoscopic Brow Lift: Using an endoscope allows for detailed working on internal structures
What Is the Recovery Like?
Since a brow lift is a surgical procedure, there will be a recovery period. However, each patient heals at a different rate. Generally, you can expect to take the first week after surgery off from work. During this time, it will be crucial to give yourself time to rest and heal. The more rest you get, the better your long-term results will be.
Some swelling and discomfort are to be expected, but you will be able to manage it with proper medication. However, these should subside with a few days to around a week. The total time to recover from a forehead lift can be several weeks, but you can gradually return to your daily life during this time. As the weeks pass, you will see continual improvements in your results.
Dr. Brent will provide you with a complete list of instructions to achieve the best results possible. By following these, you can ensure a shorter recovery period and a better overall result. If you have any questions at any point, do not hesitate to call us. We are here for you along every step of your rejuvenation journey.
While there will be scarring, Dr. Brent aims to minimize their visibility. By hiding any incisions in your hairline, any scarring should barely be visible. Also, any scars should improve over time on their own.
