Brow Lift Q & A

What is a brow lift?

Despite its name, brow lift surgery isn’t just for the eyebrows. This procedure encompasses the upper one-third of your face, including: 

  • Reducing horizontal forehead lines
  • Improving “11” lines between the eyebrows
  • Improving horizontal lines at the top of the nose
  • Elevating sagging eyebrows

A brow lift can rejuvenate the top of your face and create a younger appearance in that area. 

Where are the incisions for a brow lift?

Brow lift incisions range from several tiny incisions hidden in the hairline (endoscopic brow lift) to one ear-to-ear incision within the hairline (coronal brow lift), with other variations also possible. 

Dr. Madni plans your brow lift based on your goals for the surgery, the degree of sagging, the depth of the wrinkles, and other individual factors. 

Regardless of the method, Dr. Madni skillfully conceals brow lift incisions within or around your hairline as much as possible. Even if you have a small amount of scarring after the surgery, it won’t be highly visible. 

How does a brow lift compare to Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injectable that treats forehead and between-brow lines by temporarily freezing the muscles that cause them.

While Botox can be quite effective and is a popular treatment, it’s not a long-term solution. On average, Botox works for 2-3 months, so you need to schedule regular treatments to maintain your results. 

In contrast, a brow lift surgically repositions the skin and fat (and sometimes the muscles) in the brow and forehead area. So, a brow lift lasts much longer than Botox and can produce a more impressive change in your appearance. 

A brow lift is more expensive than a single Botox session, but when you consider that you need 3-4 Botox sessions every year, the cost of a one-time brow lift may make more sense.

Just like Botox treatments, a brow lift is typically an outpatient procedure. However, it takes around 10-14 days after a brow lift for your wounds to heal. Most people return to work and other regular routines within a couple of weeks. 

If the effects of aging are dragging down your brows — and your self-confidence — brow lift surgery could be right for you. To learn more about this long-term solution for a sagging and wrinkled forehead, call the office of Tarik Madni, MD, or book your consultation online today.
