A brow lift or forehead lift is a procedure that corrects drooping brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows in a face that make a person look angry, sad or tired.
The procedure involves the removal or alteration of the muscles and tissues that cause furrowing or drooping. There are two basic methods employed in a brow lift. The first involves the surgeon creating an incision that is hidden just behind the hairline. The second involves the use of an endoscope, an instrument that allows the procedure to be performed with minimal incisions. Both techniques yield similar results in a smoother forehead and a more animated appearance.
Recovery time: 1 week to 10 days.
