Forehead Lift / Brow Lift / Endoscopic Brow Lift / Upper Face Lift at Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C.
Performed at our Atlanta, Alpharetta and Cumming, GA locations.
With age, many people begin to form expression lines, or wrinkles and furrows, on the forehead. Thus, a forehead lift, also known as a brow lift and endoscopic brow lift may be recommended to give the face a more lifted and rejuvenated look. A forehead/brow lift can help correct aesthetic problems by minimizing the furrows between the eyes or on the forehead, lifting the upper eyelids by getting rid of heavy, excess skin on the brow, or raising the position of the eyebrows for a more alert look and youthful brow arch.
Candidates include men and women, usually in their forties to sixties, who have visible effects of aging, including the forehead furrows, frown lines, and “hooding” over the eyes caused by excess skin. The procedure can also help people with inherited conditions, such as a droopy brow or furrowed lines above the nose.
In order to minimize incision lines, surgery incisions are hidden in the hair on top of the forehead. Forehead skin is then carefully lifted and the skin and muscles that cause the aesthetic problems are then removed or altered. Another advanced surgical method for upper face lift involves making very small incisions and endoscopically removing excess fat found in the brow area. This procedure significantly reduces the risk of post-operative numbness of the scalp and hairline.
This procedure is often done in conjunction with laser resurfacing to even skin tone and texture after the procedure.

How long do the results from a forehead or brow lift last?
Facial rejuvenation procedures like a forehead or brow lift can effectively turn back the clock, erasing many of the effects that time and gravity. However, they cannot stop the aging process entirely. Over time, brow wrinkles and sagging will eventually return. Minimally invasive cosmetic maintenance procedures like Botox® injectable treatments can, in many cases, help delay the appearance of lines and wrinkles and preserve your brow lift results.
Are there visible scars left behind after a forehead or brow lift?
Advanced surgical techniques usually make it possible to perform a brow lift procedure with only tiny, nearly invisible incisions hidden within the hair line. This endoscopic “key-hole” approach makes adjustments to the tissue and underlying muscle using only a thin tube fitted with a camera and special instruments, avoiding unsightly scarring and significantly reducing overall recovery time. Even in cases where the surgery needs to be completed in a more traditional manner, our experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons can use various techniques to keep scarring to a minimum.
Can a forehead or brow lift be performed in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures?
Many patients opt to combine facial plastic surgery procedures in order to reduce overall cost and minimize their recovery time. Brow lift results are often complemented by a blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, that removes excess sagging skin and fat deposits from the upper and/or lower eyelids, giving the eyes a refreshed and rejuvenated look. Patients also frequently choose to give the skin a refreshed and renewed appearance and even out the overall skin tone after a brow lift with laser skin resurfacing or a chemical peel.
