What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift (browplasty), or forehead lift, is a popular aesthetic surgery that tightens lax tissue in the upper section of the face to achieve a smoother and younger-looking profile. A droopy brow or wrinkled forehead can oftentimes create an angry or tired appearance. This procedure surgically improves these cosmetic concerns by removing excess skin and using specialized tightening techniques. Dr. Shoib Myint is a highly trained and experienced oculofacial plastic surgeon who has performed brow lifts for many years with great success and has helped countless men and women achieve youthful, natural-looking results.

"I am a little more than 2 weeks post op for a brow lift done by Dr Myint. I am thrilled.

"Looking 10 Years Younger!!!! I feel confident and see the bright, young eyes I knew before - Dr. Myint performed my brow lift two weeks ago, and I absolutely love the results. The procedure resulted in minimal discomfort relieved by Tylenol for two days. Before my brow lift, I disliked looking at pictures of myself, and always appeared exhausted. Now I feel confident and see the bright, young eyes I knew before. I have tried multiple non-invasive lasers over the last few years, and have even tried injectables. I am very happy that I consulted with Dr. Myint and proceeded with a surgical procedure that will benefit my looks for many years to come. If you want youthful, beautiful, natural-looking results, treat yourself to Dr. Myint's talents. Dr. Myint is highly accomplished, has a superb bedside manner, and will provide ample information before and after the procedure."- E. / RealSelf / Jun 15, 2020
"Couldn’t be happier - Here I am one week from a brow lift done by Dr Myint. I can honestly say that it has exceeded my expectations. With the surgery on a Thursday, bandages off on Friday, I was out and about with just a bit of makeup to cover some bruising by my eye. Everyone is different, but I had no pain and the only thing I can say is that it felt like I had a hat on that was a bit too tight. I would highly recommend Dr Myint. He is professional, personable and answered all my questions. I also found the office staff to be supportive and caring."- Anonymous / Vitals / Jun 21, 2019
Candidates for a brow lift
When you grow older, skin elasticity diminishes and can cause many areas of your face to droop. This is particularly true in the upper face and impacts both men and women. When looking at yourself in a mirror, do you seem angry or tired, do you see frown lines between your brows, or are bothered by a drooping brow? Brow lift surgery at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery may be the ideal cosmetic treatment for your goals.
types of brow lift techniques
A brow lift/forehead lift is generally performed with IV sedation and local anesthesia on-site within our accredited surgical facility in Las Vegas. The incision technique performed during a browplasty is determined based on the degree of skin sag, whether the forehead is being addressed, and the position of the hairline. There are different approaches that may be used:
- Traditional Incision
Also called the open browplasty incision, this places the surgical incision behind the hairline at the top of the head. The traditional incision not only conceals scars, but it also allows a certain amount of controlled lifting during the procedure. The traditional incision tends to be good for those with both frown lines and a sagging brow.
- Trichophytic Incision
This incision is made right against the hairline. It allows for a more dramatic lift in the brow for patients who have a low risk of hairline recession.
- Lateral Brow Lift
Also known as a temporal brow lift, the lateral technique starts the incision in the hairline slightly over the temples. The lateral incision permits the outer parts of the brow to be treated and helps to reduce sagging that is visible in the outer brows. A temporal brow lift also helps to treat Crow’s feet.
- Endoscopic Forehead Lift
The endoscopic lift is a more modern technique used in brow lifts. It places multiple tiny incisions beyond the hairline and inserts an endoscope, which is pushed through the area of the eyebrow to release its attachments. Using the camera of the endoscope, the brow tissue is repositioned using stitches to lift the brow into a better position.
after brow lift surgery
Recovery after brow lift surgery varies for each patient, with more swelling and discomfort occurring with the open method versus the endoscopic or temporal techniques. In general, patients often feel slight swelling and bruising in their upper face near their brows and sometimes near their eyes. Cold compresses and over-the-counter pain medication may help decrease swelling and general discomfort. Dr. Myint advises patients to sleep with pillows propped under their heads for at least three nights following their brow lift. It is critical to avoid any movement or activities that may place pressure on the face. The average recovery time is about 6 – 8 weeks.
