What Is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift, or forehead lift, restores a youthful appearance to the upper face. This procedure concentrates specifically on the soft tissue over the eyes: the eyebrows and forehead. During a brow lift, excess skin is removed, sagging is corrected, deep creases are smoothed, and contours are refreshed.
Sagging brows can cause you to convey the wrong emotions. You may look saddened, angry, or tired, even if you aren’t feeling that way. Lifting the brows restores your youthful appearance, helping you to look happier, more vibrant, and refreshed. Although a brow lift treats the upper third of the face, patients often see improvement in their overall facial appearance from the balance it brings to their facial features.
Brow Lift Surgery at Connecticut Facial Plastic Surgery - What to Expect
If you’re considering brow lift surgery, come in for a consultation with one of our board-certified surgeons. A consultation is an ideal first-step toward rejuvenation.

Call us to schedule yours today.
After your consultation, you’ll have all the information you need to decide if brow lift surgery is right for you. If you’re ready for surgery, we’ll help you schedule your procedure. We perform surgeries at an off-site surgical center.
On the day of your procedure, you’ll arrive at the surgical center, check-in, and head into pre-op. To prep the skin for surgery, patients wash their face and hair using an antibacterial soap. Your surgeon will meet you in pre-op to review treatment goals and discuss recovery instructions. If needed, we’ll make surgical markings at this time.
Brow lift surgery usually takes one to two hours, longer if we’re combining your lift with other facial plastic surgery treatments. Depending on the type of brow lift most suitable to meet your unique needs, several different incisions and techniques may be used. Specific techniques will all be discussed during the consultation process.
The skin of the brow is lifted, and we tighten and remove muscle as needed. Excess skin is carefully trimmed away when necessary. Finally, the incision is closed using metal clips or sutures.
Our goal is always a natural looking result. Our procedures are always customized to meet the unique anatomical needs of our patients and maximize their results.
Brow Lift Recovery
Our brow lift patients can recover in the comfort of their own homes. After surgery, you’ll spend one to two hours in our recovery area before returning home. Make sure you arrange for someone to drive you and stay with you for a couple of days. We’ll call that night to make sure you’re doing well, and you’ll come to our office for a follow-up check a day or two later.
Bandaging may be used after a brow lift, but not always. If we use bandaging, we’ll remove it one to three days after your procedure. Sutures are removed about a week after surgery. Patients can resume hair washing after a few days.
Bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort are common and expected. Most patients won’t need prescription pain medications, although we do provide them if needed. You may feel numbness or itching around the incision site.
Most patients return to work after two weeks. Visible signs of surgery are usually gone in about three weeks. Limit strenuous activities for several weeks, until you’re cleared to resume these activities by your surgeon.
Many of our patients are pleasantly surprised by the ease of their recovery experience after a brow lift. We’re always available if you have any concerns. Please get in touch if you experience any unexpected symptoms or if you’re not healing as expected.
