What is an endoscopic brow lift?

A brow lift — known as a forehead lift — can lift and rejuvenate the forehead and eye area on its own, or enhance the improvements made during an upper blepharoplasty or droopy eyelid surgery.

Many people believe that excess skin in the upper eyelids is the main cause of an aged, droopy look in the eye area. More often, however, it’s the brow that contributes significantly to these age-related cosmetic changes. An endoscopic brow lift can fix this.



You may be an ideal candidate for a brow lift if you have any of the following concerns:

  • Lines or creases on the forehead (horizontal forehead furrows)
  • Lines between the brows (frown lines)
  • Loose, excess skin on the brow that droops over the upper eyelids
If lifting your face like this makes you look younger, more refreshed, and relaxed: you might benefit from a brow lift.

What does the brow lift procedure look like?

A brow lift is performed as an outpatient procedure, either with minimal sedation or with a general anesthetic based on patient preference. The specific surgical steps and incision technique vary based on the needs of each patient. Typically, the tissue and muscle underneath the skin are adjusted to smooth creases and furrows on the forehead. Asymmetries can be addressed if necessary. A brow lift is commonly performed in conjunction with eye lift surgery.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Wulc will evaluate your forehead and overall facial anatomy. We will discuss your aesthetic concerns and goals in order to develop a treatment plan that best achieves the desired outcome. Rest assured that our brow lift surgeons are aptly trained and skilled in achieving great results. Dr. Wulc will work carefully to preserve your unique beauty. The degree of lifting is carefully planned prior to surgery in order to avoid an unnatural look.

How to prepare for an endoscopic brow lift

To prepare for a brow lift, patients should stop taking anti-inflammatory medications, like aspirin, since they may interfere with the healing process. Ideally, old photographs will help us determine the optimal location to place the brows. 

This way, once they are healed, there is a semblance to their position in the past, and you’ll achieve natural-looking results tailored to your facial structure and original features. 

What will recovery after a brow lift be like?

In most cases, it takes between one and two weeks for patients to recover from a brow lift. While patients may be able to resume work and other daily activities after a week, we recommend they take about 10-12 days off, if possible, so their surgical wounds have enough time to heal. This will also allow the swelling and bruising time to subside.

Although it’s important to get plenty of rest, it is generally safe for patients to engage in light activities during recovery. Moderate to strenuous activity and exercise, however, should be avoided during the first few weeks.
