Have you noticed that your brows have started to sag down toward your eyes? The skin and muscles of the forehead area lose strength and resilience over time. Skin laxity leads to lines, wrinkles, and sagging, heavy-looking brows. A brow lift tightens the skin and muscle layers to restore a more youthful, alert appearance.
What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift is a surgical procedure that tightens the skin and muscles that support the brow area. It can rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes and upper face. A brow lift can even improve your vision by removing skin that hangs low enough to get in the way of your eyesight. Dr. Brenman will develop a treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results. A brow lift works well alone or in combination with other procedures, such as a facelift or eyelid lift.
Am I a Candidate for a Brow Lift?
Candidates for a brow lift have sagging brows and lax forehead skin. You should be in good health and prepared to take the needed time off to let yourself recover. Ideal candidates want to restore and refresh the upper part of the face for a younger appearance. You may not make a good candidate if you are pregnant or have certain medical conditions.
How is a Brow Lift Performed?
Dr. Brenman performs direct and endoscopic brow lifts, so he can provide you with the best available options.
An endoscopic brow lift uses small incisions hidden in your hairline to lift and reposition the skin and muscles. The incisions for a direct brow lift are made just above the eyebrow or within the folds of the upper eyelid. A direct brow lift gives your surgeon more access to adjusting your muscles. In exchange, you may have slightly more visible scars.
How Much is a Brow Lift?
The price for cosmetic procedures will vary depending on where you live, your provider, and the type of procedure you have. An average brow lift costs about $3,900. This may not include other fees and expenses such as anesthesia, medications, and post-surgical products. We recommend a consultation so we can give you an accurate estimate.

What Results Will I Achieve With a Brow Lift?
When performed by a skilled surgeon like Dr. Brenman, brow lift results can look as natural or as dramatic as you prefer. A direct brow lift allows more significant repositioning of the muscles than an endoscopic procedure. You will see results immediately, but swelling can take several months to resolve completely.
What is Recovery Like From a Brow Lift?
You will have some swelling and bruising after your procedure. These will fade within about a week. Most people will need three to five days to recover before returning to work. You should wait several weeks before resuming strenuous activities.
