The brow lift or forehead lift procedure provides a fresher, more rested appearance to the eyes and face. A brow lift is often performed in conjunction with eyelid lift or blepharoplasty surgery. The forehead lift or brow lift procedure is the surgery of choice when excess upper eyelid skin is caused by drooping eyebrows or when deep forehead wrinkles are present. Upper eyelid skin excess may, in many cases, be treated by a blepharoplasty or upper eyelid lift alone. When moderate or severe excess of the eyelids is due to brow droop, a brow lift procedure is considered.

To be able to achieve a harmonious and youthful face, brow lift or forehead lift may also be combined with a facelift, fat transfer (autologous fat grafts), and other rejuvenation procedures.
Following brow lift or forehead lift surgery, depending on whether there were any other additional procedures performed, you will go home on the same day or the next day with a friend or family member.
