Keep reading to discover how a brow lift can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.


What is a brow lift?

A brow lift (also called a browplasty or forehead lift) is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to raise the eyebrows and smooth the forehead. During the procedure, Dr. Myint will make small incisions in the hairline and lift the skin and underlying tissue to create a more youthful, rested appearance. A brow lift can also correct drooping eyebrows that may be affecting vision.

A brow lift can provide numerous benefits, including:

  • Smooth forehead lines and wrinkles
  • Lift eyebrows for a more youthful appearance
  • Reduce frown lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows
  • Enhance self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Improve vision if drooping eyebrows were affecting it
  • Long-lasting results

There are several causes of forehead lines, including a decrease in collagen and elastin production as we age, which results in thinner skin that is more prone to damage. The natural fat pads that help keep our skin looking firm and smooth also begin to diminish over time. Repetitive facial expressions such as frowning can also lead to dynamic lines that persist even when our face is at rest.

While drugstore creams may provide some temporary relief for fine lines, they are not a long-term solution for the underlying problem. For those looking to manage unwanted forehead wrinkles and sagging skin, a brow lift can be an effective option.


What type of brow lift is right for me?

Dr. Myint offers various brow lift techniques to help meet the unique needs and goals of each patient, including:

  • Traditional brow lifts to smooth out frown lines and raise sagging brows
  • Endoscopic forehead lifts to reposition brow tissue
  • Lateral brow lifts to reduce sagging in the outer brows and to treat Crow’s feet


Brow lift recovery

After the procedure, patients may experience some swelling and bruising around the eyes and forehead, which should subside within a few days. Full healing typically takes about 6 – 8 weeks.

Dr. Myint will provide detailed aftercare instructions, including how to care for the incisions and what medications to take to manage any discomfort. Patients should avoid strenuous activity for several weeks following the procedure to allow for proper healing.

Most brow lifts last for years, although sagging skin is a natural part of aging.
