Forehead & Brow Lift

What is Forehead and Brow Lift Surgery?

Brow lift surgery, also known as forehead lift surgery, is a cosmetic facial surgery. Patients that undergo this procedure can have a more youthful appearance. It can:

  • Reduce horizontal wrinkle lines across the forehead and bridge of the nose
  • Improve the vertical lines that develop between the eyelids
  • Raise eyebrows that are sagging over the upper eyelid

Am I a Candidate for this Surgery?


If signs of aging like lines or furrows in your brows bother you, you may want to consider brow lift surgery. The most successful candidates are:

  • In good health
  • Nonsmokers
  • People with positive, realistic attitudes about what the procedure can do for them

How Does Brow Lift Surgery Work?

The eyebrows are central in conveying human emotion. Downward eyebrows convey grumpiness or anger, while droopy eyebrows make you look tired. When done right, brow lift surgery can make you look happier.

At Discover Facial Appearances we perform endoscopic forehead and brow lifts. This is done by using an innovative surgical device called an endoscope. An endoscope is a thin tube with a tiny camera on the end.

The surgeon makes a small incision hidden behind the hairline. The endoscopic forehead lift is a face lift of the upper part of the face. It elevates and shapes the eyebrows, while removing droopiness and forehead wrinkles. It is an excellent choice for men and women alike.

Dr. McCann also performs pretrichial brow lifts. Pretrichial brow lifts are an excellent choice for women with strong hairlines. They can help make your forehead look shorter and reduce mid-forehead wrinkles. This involves an incision behind the hairline, and some removal of forehead skin.

The internal brow lift is commonly performed with upper blepharoplasty (eyelid lift surgery). The surgeon uses the same incision used to rejuvenate the upper eyelids. The internal brow lift raises eyebrows and removes furrows between brows. It is an appropriate procedure for men and women who have a small amount of droopiness between the brows.

Dr. McCann is an experienced expert at eyebrow and forehead lifts. In fact, he has performed thousands of these procedures throughout his career. Dr. McCann customizes each procedure to the individual patient and how they want to look after. He has achieved a very high level of patient satisfaction with brow lift surgery.

During your consult, our team will discuss the surgical method that will give you the best results.

How Long Will It Take to See Results?

Some patients notice results right away, but the skin needs time to recover and heal. It can take a month or two to see the full benefits of the surgery.

Are There Any Risks or Complications to Eyebrow Lift Surgery?

All medical procedures have some level of risk. Possible complications may include:

  • Bleeding
  • Pain that persists
  • Loss of hair around the incision
  • Infection

You should discuss the risk of complications with your doctor before the surgery. It’s important to have realistic expectations before any procedure.

Many patients select Discover Facial Appearances for their procedure because of Dr. McCann’s expertise and experience. Dr. McCann is trained in both ophthalmology and facial plastic surgery. There may be less risks if you have a brow lift performed by an experienced oculoplastic surgeon.
