The upper third of the face is defined as the forehead, brow, and upper eyelids. While less well known to patients, a Brow Lift is the most appropriate procedure to produce dramatic improvement to this important aesthetic unit.

  • A properly executed Brow Lift raises and separates furrowed and drooping eyebrows and smoothes the forehead to create a more youthful appearance. Good technique and judgment will avoid a surprised look or an overly elevated hairline.  This procedure can be performed in conjunction with other surgeries such as facelift or rhinoplasty.

  • For a Coronal Brow Lift, an incision is generally made across the top of the head away from the hairline. The forehead and brows are elevated, muscles are released, and excess skin is removed. The tissue flap is then sutured.
  • A hairline brow lift is similar, but the central portion of the incision is carefully positioned along the hair / forehead skin border.  For patients with a high forehead, the hairline incision reduces the forehead height. Dr. Wigod will discuss the merits of each technique and suggest the most appropriate one.
  • Patients are discharged to home on the day of surgery. Swelling, bruising and brow weakness may occur, but improve within a few weeks. There may be long lasting numbness behind the incision. Patients may wash their hair on the second day after surgery and patients return to regular activity in two week . Sutures are generally removed in one to two weeks.
