One of the signs of aging is a saggy brow line, occurring as a result of the main tendon in the eyelid becoming stretched. In addition, the brow and forehead area are both prone to wrinkling and creasing as the skin succumbs to age and environmental factors. Sun, wind, and gravity can all have detrimental effects on the skin. These factors can give the face a sad, angry, or fatigued appearance. Brow lift (which is similar to forehead lift) is intended to elevate the brow line to a more pleasing position and “open up” the face so it looks happier, younger, and more rested.

Am I a Candidate for Brow Lift?
You may qualify for brow lift surgery if:
- Your eyebrows sag or droop
- Your forehead has deep creases and wrinkles
- You have frown lines between your eyebrows or at the top of your nose
Dr. Katz will meet with you for a consultation to learn more about your specific needs and determine whether brow lift is a good fit. The consultation will include a physical examination of your forehead and brow area, as well as a medical review to ensure that you are healthy enough to undergo surgery. Dr. Katz will inquire about your personal goals of surgery, and use this information to put together a personalized treatment plan. He will also discuss what you can expect after surgery.
What Does the Surgery Involve?
Dr. Katz will focus on the underlying structures of the brow and forehead. He may remove excess skin and tighten the muscles to raise the brow line naturally.
A forehead lift can be performed several different ways, depending on your desired results.
What Is the Recovery Like?
It is normal to have mild post-operative swelling, soreness, and bruising. These symptoms will subside with time, generally within a week or two. For any pain or discomfort after surgery, oral medication is prescribed by Dr. Katz to alleviate these symptoms.
During the initial recovery, it is best to avoid any bending, heavy lifting, or strenuous activity. Take time off work to relax and rest your body. Dr. Katz will advise when it is safe to return to work, exercise and your normal activity level. He will also meet with you to follow up on your healing progress, remove any stitches, and answer any additional questions.
