Want a more rested and youthful look to the eyes and face? As we age, our facial features undergo a series of changes. Gravity, the sun, and other factors can all contribute to the lowering of the eyebrow position which causes drooping eyelids and an overall older appearance.

While many focus on the lips and eyes, the eyebrows and forehead play a critical role in our appearance. Brow lift surgery is sometimes the solution for someone thinking they need a blepharoplasty, as low eyebrows affect the appearance of the upper eyelids as well.
Brow lifts safely improve the appearance in the upper eyelid and eyebrow region of the face and are often combined with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or other facelift and facial surgery procedures.

What is a forehead and brow lift?

Forehead lifting, also known as brow lifting, is a permanent surgical procedure that corrects saggy eyebrows, resulting in a refreshed and less tired appearance.

It is often combined with upper blepharoplasty.

What are the potential benefits of brow lifting?

he normal position of the eyebrows in females should be about a centimeter above the orbital rim, and at the level of the rim in males. With time, the eyebrows sag, causing heaviness in the upper eyelids and causing a tired or angry look.

A brow lift procedure opens the eyes and decreases this tired or angry look that many patients complain of.

Some of the other benefits of a brow lift include:

  • Smooths away forehead muscles and reduces the appearance of wrinkles
  • Restores a youthful arch to the eyebrows.
  • Reduced appearance of sagging upper eyelids
  • Improved appearance around the eyes (reducing crow’s feet)
  • Dramatic and long-lasting
  • Improve a tired or angry appearance

What Are The Different Types Of Brow Lifts?

There are two main types of brow lift:

Open Brow Lift – Also known as traditional brow lift, the doctor makes an incision across the forehead where the skin is gently lifted away. Other names include Coronal brow lift and trichophytic brow lift. Some open techniques are called “direct” where the incision is hidden in a deep forehead wrinkle or right above the eyebrow.

Endoscopic Brow Lift – The endoscopic technique involves making small incisions in the forehead area and inserting an endoscope (metal tube with an attached small camera), where the surgeon observes the operation through a screen rather than through the open wound.

What is the difference between a forehead lift and a temporal lift?

A temporal lift is a variation of the forehead lift where it is the lateral aspect of the brows (closer to the temples) that is mainly lifted.

The temporal lift is also known as the fox eye lift or ponytail lift, where it gives the effect of having your hair tied in a ponytail permanently.

What happens during a forehead lifting consultation?

A consultation starts with a complete questionnaire and physical examination. Photos are taken and analyzed with your surgeon. This is an essential communication tool as some patients want changes that are not always possible in surgery.

Then, we talk about surgery and recovery, and Dr. Moubayed answers any questions you may have.

Multiple consultations are sometimes necessary before deciding to proceed with surgery. Cosmetic facial surgery is an important decision to make and you are well informed before proceeding with it.

What are the risks of forehead or brow lifting?

Like any facial plastic surgery, forehead lifting presents the universal (but minimal) risks of scarring, bleeding (and bruising), infection (superficial or deep), and pain (temporary or permanent).

However, the main risk of any cosmetic surgery is not being satisfied with the result. After a proper consultation that includes a complete examination and photo evaluation, Montreal surgeon Dr. Moubayed can generally produce the results desired by the patient. However, we do not control the healing of tissues, and some patients heal in an unpredictable way producing asymmetries or irregularities that can sometimes require touch-ups.

Forehead lifting involves the risk of producing paralysis of a facial nerve branch, temporary (and sometimes permanent) numbness of the forehead and scalp, hair loss, and changes in skin pigmentation.

Dr. Moubayed is a board-certified surgeon that is exclusively trained in facial surgery. His clinic has a conservative and individualized approach with each patient. All patients are followed closely after surgery with very precise and very clear instructions from doctors. All of this is done to minimize the risks listed above.

Things You Should Know Before Getting Browlift

Browlift: Frequently Asked Questions for Cosmetic Browlift Surgery.

Forehead lifting is a surgery that is executed with finesse and precision to minimize nerve injury. When practiced using modern technique, it takes in general about an hour.

Forehead lifting can be performed under local anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. When combined with a more extensive surgery such as a facelift, it can be performed under general anesthesia.

For general anesthesia, the type of anesthesia used is total intravenous anesthesia (without using anesthetic gases). This type of anesthesia is safe and helps reduce nausea and coughing after surgery. Our patients often report how positive their anesthesia experience was.

Patients leave the surgical center the same day and recover at home with a dressing and very precise instructions.

Your first post-operative appointment will take place 5 to 7 days later, where your dressing and stitches and staples will be removed, and your wound will be examined. At that point, you can return to your regular activities and any bruising can be hidden with concealer. 

Light physical activity can be resumed after the first week, but for more vigorous activities like weightlifting, it is recommended to wait three weeks to minimize bleeding risk.

How long does swelling last after A brow lift procedure?

After a week, you will be very presentable in society. The majority of swelling decreases over the first three months, but minimal (barely visible) swelling can persist for up to a year.

Non-surgical brow lifting is when neuromodulators (botulinum toxin) are used to raise eyebrows. This is a temporary solution that must be repeated.
It is important to look at multiple factors during your submental liposuction surgeon choice:
  1. Does your surgeon have specific expertise in facial surgery and anatomy to be able to minimize complications?
  2. Can your surgeon perform all types of procedures on the forehead and eyes to be able to choose which one is most adapted to your needs?
  3. Did you have a positive experience and feel comfortable during your consultation?
