How Does a Brow Lift Work?
A brow lift, sometimes called a forehead lift, is a procedure that restores a youthful, well-rested appearance to the area above the eyes. During a forehead lift, muscles and tissue that cause the furrowing or drooping are tightened. Excess skin and fat pads are also removed to help smooth the forehead, raise the eyebrows, and minimize frown lines.
Brow lift surgeries are tailored based on the patient’s unique needs. Dr. Craig may use the conventional surgical method, in which the incision is hidden just behind the hairline to dramatically improve the upper portion of the face or shorten the forehead with an anterior hairline incision.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Brow Lift?
A forehead lift is most commonly performed on patients between the ages of 40-60. However, the procedure can help adults of any age who have developed furrows or frown lines due to stress or repetitive facial movements. Individuals with inherited conditions, such as a low, heavy brow, or furrowed lines above the nose can also achieve a more alert and refreshed look with this procedure.
You may be a good candidate for a brow lift if you are:
- In overall good health.
- Have realistic expectations.
- A non-smoker.
- Can undergo general anesthesia.
The forehead lift is sometimes performed in conjunction with a Facelift for more dramatic results. A forehead lift may also be combined with an Eyelid Lift (blepharoplasty) if the patient has excessive skin in the upper eyelids. Conversely, it’s not uncommon for patients to inquire about upper-eyelid surgery only to discover that a forehead lift better meets their ultimate goals.
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?*
Brow lift surgery can vary depending on your individual goals as well as the methods enlisted to achieve them. On average, the procedure takes about 1-2 hours. Brow lifts are done under general anesthesia and are an outpatient procedure.
“I saw Dr. Craig and his staff. From the time that I walked in the door they were friendly and informative. I didn’t have a long wait time. Dr. Craig came in the room talked with me like I was his only patient that day. I would recommend him and his sweet staff to anyone.”
What Results Will I See?*
Some initial results can be seen immediately following your procedure. For example, the skin above the eye will appear firmer, tighter, and wrinkle-free. The majority of swelling and bruising will subside within 2-weeks leaving you with gradual improvement. An optimal outcome will be visible in 2-4 months post-op. Although the skin will continue to age, most patients report a high patient satisfaction rate even years after their surgery.
Is There Any Downtime?
Recovery times will be based on a variety of factors that Dr. Craig will outline at the time of your consultation. Most patients need about 10-14 days of recovery from traditional brow lift surgery. Strenuous activities should be avoided for several weeks with any procedure.
