What is a Brow Lift?

In a brow or forehead lift, the tissues and muscles responsible for the drooping, creases, and lines on a patient’s brow are altered or removed, resulting in raised eyebrows, a smoother forehead, and fewer frown lines. A brow lift is designed to restore the area above your eyes to a more refreshed and youthful appearance. This popular procedure smooths out your drooping brows and noticeably improves the creases and horizontal lines, lines that can tend to make you appear to be tired, angry, or sad, even when you are not.

Benefits of a Brow Lift

If you want to freshen up your looks, with a smoother and more youthful looking forehead, then a brow lift may be right for you. Brow lifts are often performed alongside facelifts to provide patients with a smoother and more youthful appearance overall, and the natural restoration of your appearance. With a brow lift by Tennessee plastic surgeon Dr. Mike Hueneke, you can improve the look of your forehead, eliminating age lines, and regaining your youthful appearance. At his Plastic Surgery Affiliates office in Nashville, Dr. Hueneke works with various patients from Brentwood, Hendersonville, and nearby locations.

How is the Brow Lift Performed?

For a classic brow lift, prior to your operation, you will have rubber bands tied in place in your hair where the incision will be made, and while you will not need to have your head shaved, you may need to have the hair trimmed that is growing directly in front of the incision area. A coronal incision, which starts at ear level and runs around the top of the forehead to the other ear in a headphone-like pattern, is used for most classic forehead lift patients and is typically made behind the hairline, making the scar invisible. If you have a high or receding hairline, Dr. Hueneke may make the incision right at the hairline to avoid raising your forehead further which is something he will discuss with you during your consultation. While the incision is being made, the forehead skin is gently lifted up, allowing for the removal of underlying tissue. The eyebrows may be elevated as well, and any excess skin at the point of the incision is carefully trimmed away to create a much smoother and refreshingly youthful appearance. Afterward, your incision is closed with clips or stitches, your hair and face are cleaned, and rubber bands in your hair will have been removed, and gauze padding is placed over the incision to bandage your head.

Endoscopic Brow Lift

An endoscopic brow lift is similar but requires three to five short scalp incisions, each of which will be less than an inch long. A pen-like camera device, known as an endoscope, is then inserted into one of the incisions to provide Dr. Hueneke with a clear view of the facial tissues and muscles underneath the skin so he can lift the forehead skin and allow for the underlying tissues and muscles to be altered or removed. The eyebrows may be lifted as well and secured into their raised position via sutures beneath the skin or temporary screws inserted behind the hairline. When the procedure is finished, the incisions are closed with clips or stitches and the entire area is washed. Gauze or a bandage wrap may be placed over the incisions as well.

Recovery from a Brow Lift

Following your brow lift procedure, some patients will be required to elevate their heads for up to three days to minimize swelling and sometimes, but this typically disappears after less than one week. Dr. Hueneke uses bandages, and they will be removed only one or two days after your surgery. Your normal hair growth usually resumes in less than three months.
