The Browlift Basics

Also known as a forehead lift, a browlift is a surefire way to elevate the eyebrows to a more youthful position. The procedure also decreases forehead lines and crow's-feet and can diminish any hooding that may be occurring in the upper eyelids.

In most cases, a browlift is performed using an endoscope, a special surgical tool that has a video camera on the end. The advantage of using an endoscope is that it allows your surgeon to manipulate tissue and muscle without having to make large incisions. When this technique is used, the incision is made in the hairline so that once you're healed, any scars will be almost undetectable.

About 10 days after surgery, the majority of the swelling and bruising should have gone down, and you'll be able to notice a difference in your apperance. A browlift provides a subtle improvement that makes you look refreshed. When the brows are moved to an elevated position, you convey a younger, fresher, more feminine appearance because the eyes look wider and more alert. 

For a less-invasive approach, you can also consider a botox browlift as an alternative treatment.
