Expression is one of the most amazing gifts human beings are given. We can show the world every emotion we’re feeling - happiness, sadness, anger, etc. But at some point, some of these expression lines begin to linger even when we aren’t making any faces. These lines grow more and more pronounced as our skin matures, causing the weight of gravity to be reflected in our faces.

Ideal Candidate:

If you’ve noticed horizontal wrinkle lines across your forehead, around the bridge of the nose and between the eyes, or have noticed droopy eyebrows or eyelids due to excessive skin sagging over the eyes, then a Forehead / Brow Lift may be your perfect solution to a younger, happier-looking version of yourself.

What To Expect:

An incision is made along the hairline above the ears and around the forehead. Muscle and tissue are also repositioned and the excess skin is then removed, leaving the patient with a smoother and more youthful appearance to the top one-third portion of the face.


Your recovery time will vary depending on what type of Brow lift you’re planning on having done.

Stitches or staples are used to seal the incisions and are typically removed a week after surgery. During the first 10 days of recovery, you will typically experience an extra tight feeling in the forehead region, as well as bruising and swelling.

After a week, you are able to return to a sedentary job and in about a month are able to resume a fitness routine approved by your surgeon.
