About Brow Lift Surgery
When you get older, skin elasticity reduces and causes many areas of the face to sag. This is particularly critical in the upper face and typically impacts men and women. When looking at yourself in a mirror, do you appear angry or tired, see deep wrinkles in between your eyebrows, or are bothered by your sagging brow? Brow lift surgery at the Center for Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery can be the ideal aesthetic procedure for your needs.
"My name is Timothy Edwards and I really appreciate Dr. Movagharnia and his staff. He is the first doctor that really talked to me and explained the process of the surgery and all the events that would happened pre and post surgery.

Before the procedure, anesthesia is given to the patient. This may be done under IV sedation or general anesthesia based on the extent of the procedure. The incision performed in a browplasty is chosen depending on the degree of skin sag, whether or not the forehead is being addressed, and the appearance of the patient's hairline. Some of the different techniques that may be used:
- Traditional Incision
Also known as the open lift incision, this puts the surgical incision behind the hairline at the top of the head. The traditional incision not only masks scars, it allows a certain amount of lift control throughout the surgery. The traditional incision is good for those with both frown lines and a sagging brow. The traditional brow lift is the better technique for patients who are concerned about a receding hairline.
- Trichophytic Incision
The trichophytic incision is made directly against the patient's hairline. A trichophytic incision permits more dramatic lift in the brow for women and men who have a low risk for hairline recession.
- Lateral Brow Lift
Also called a temporal browplasty, the lateral method sets the incision inside the hairline slightly over the temples. The lateral incision permits the outer areas of the brow to be raised and helps sagging that is visible in the outer brow. The lateral technique also helps to correct Crow’s feet.
- Endoscopic Forehead Lift
The endoscopic lift is a more modern method employed in a brow lift. This method makes multiple small incisions beyond the hairline and inserts an endoscope, which moves to the eyebrow to release its attached tools. Using the endoscope's camera, the brow tissue is repositioned with stitches to place the brow in a better position.
What to Expect
The recovery period after a brow lift can vary, with the most swelling and discomfort reported with the traditional technique compared to the temporal or endoscopic approaches. In general, patients feel some swelling and bruising in the upper portion of the face around the eyebrows and sometimes near the eyes. Cold compresses can help to decrease the inflammation. Dr. Movagharnia recommends patients sleep with pillows propped under their head for 3 – 4 nights after their brow lift. It is critical to avoid any activities or movement that can put pressure on your face. The typical recovery period from a brow lift is around 2 – 3 weeks. The results can often be seen right away, with a refreshed appearance that seems more alert, softer, and with a visible improvement in sagging skin and fine lines in the upper half of the face.
