Also called a forehead lift, a brow lift can smooth away deep wrinkles and creases that form across your forehead, as well as the vertical lines called “11 lines” that form between your eyebrows. This procedure can also address a drooping brow that may interfere with your upper eyelids. Many men and women choose to get a brow lift in order to achieve a more energized and youthful appearance.

Am I a Good Candidate?
The forehead is often one of the first places that people notice wrinkles, sagging skin and other signs of aging. If you are bothered by the appearance of lines and wrinkles in your forehead and brow area that nonsurgical solutions such as BOTOX® are unable to treat, a brow lift could be an appropriate solution for you. In some cases, including eyelid surgery with your brow lift can help you achieve more comprehensive results.
Ideal candidates for facial cosmetic surgery will be in good physical health, not smoke and have realistic goals for their cosmetic surgery results.
While a brow lift can very effectively address cosmetic concerns in your upper face, it does not treat wrinkles in your lower face. If marionette lines, jowls and other signs of aging in your lower face are also a concern, you might consider combining your brow lift with a facelift or a neck lift.
Brow Lift FAQs
How much does a brow lift cost?
The average cost of a brow lift is around $3,623, according to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This figure does not include anesthesia, operating room fees or other additional costs. The cost of a brow lift also varies by location. Don’t hesitate to discuss financing options during your consultation to help make your procedure as affordable as possible.
How do I choose the best brow lift cosmetic surgeon near me?
Look for a reputable and experienced cosmetic surgeon who focuses on facial cosmetic procedures. Once you’ve narrowed down your search, schedule a consultation to make sure this is the best fit for you.
Is a brow lift the best facial cosmetic procedure for me?
A brow lift could be right for you if you have deep forehead wrinkles, lines between your eyebrows or a drooping brow that nonsurgical treatments are unable to adequately address. Dr. Pugao would be happy to discuss your specific needs and goals with you to help you decide if a brow lift is the best solution for you.
What age should you get a brow lift?
While there is no “right” or “wrong” age to get a brow lift, the best candidates for this procedure are typically in their 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond. If prominent forehead wrinkles are a concern in your 20s and 30s, consider nonsurgical treatments first. Once they are no longer able to produce the same level of results, you could be a good candidate for a brow lift or other facial cosmetic surgeries.
Does a brow lift hurt?
Brow lifts are typically performed using general anesthesia, so you should not feel any pain at all during your procedure. Most people report very little pain after getting a brow lift, although some discomfort, swelling and bruising are common.
What can I expect after a brow lift?
Plan on taking it easy the first few days after your brow lift and focus on resting. After 1 to 2 days, most people feel up to walking around the house. After the first week, you should be able to return to work, depending on how physically demanding your job is. By week four, you should be able to resume your regular exercise routine, under Dr. Pugao’s guidance.
When will I see my brow lift results?
While you may notice changes in your brow area right away, swelling can temporarily camouflage your full outcome. Expect to see gradual improvements in your appearance over the course of several months following your brow lift.
