Types of Brow Lifts

Open Brow Lift 

The open brow lift allows the skin and underlying forehead tissues to be lifted and repositioned to elevate the eyebrows and set the forehead back to its youthful position. One long incision will be made along the hairline to access and visualize the underlying facial structures. This approach is best for patients with moderate to severe wrinkling and sagging skin.

Endoscopic Brow Lift

The endoscopic brow lift involves the use of a surgical telescope to elevate the brows and smooth forehead wrinkles through small incisions made behind the hairline. Endoscopic surgery is less invasive than the traditional approach, and the scars are much smaller. This approach is typically best suited for patients who do not have deep horizontal lines across the forehead or a lot of loose skin on the forehead. 

Brow Lift Procedure

The brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is typically performed under IV sedation, meaning patients will be awake but sleepy and relaxed. Using the brow lift technique discussed during your consultation, our doctors will make the incision(s) along your forehead and reposition the brow tissues to create a more elevated, youthful appearance.

Best Candidates for Brow Lift Surgery

The best candidates for a brow lift are men and women who are bothered by forehead wrinkles, sagging skin, or droopy eyebrows. Patients should be in overall good health without an allergy to anesthesia or underlying medical conditions. The brow lift can be combined with other cosmetic procedures and we will discuss your options in detail to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets all your aesthetic goals.

Brow Lift Recovery

After a brow lift, swelling, bruising, and mild tenderness are common. To limit swelling and discomfort, patients should sleep with their heads elevated for a few days and take pain medication as needed. Although most patients can return to work and light activities after 1-2 weeks, strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least four weeks.

Results of Brow Lift Surgery

After a brow lift, it can take several months for the swelling to reduce and the incision scars to fade. Most swelling will improve after two weeks which is when you can start seeing results, but it can take 2-3 months to see the final results of your procedure. Although natural aging will gradually cause new wrinkles to develop, most patients can expect their results to last 5-10 years.

Brow Lift Risks

No surgical procedure is risk-free and that includes cosmetic surgery like brow lift surgery. During your consultation with Dr. Sabbagh or Dr. Baca, they will review the risks so you can make an educated decision. With an established track record of over 80 years, an accredited facility, and thousands of satisfied patients throughout Dearborn, metro Detroit, Michigan, and the U.S., the Straith Clinic has earned an excellent reputation for cosmetic surgery of the face and body. 

Brow Lift Combination Procedures


A brow lift can be included with a facelift procedure to rejuvenate the entire face. While the facelift addresses wrinkling and sagging skin on the midface (area between the eyes and cheeks) and lower face, the brow lift can enhance the upper face, creating a harmonious result.

Eyelid Lift 

Blepharoplasty or eyelid lift surgery is commonly included with a brow lift to effectively brighten and refresh the entire eye area. An upper eyelid surgery removes excess skin and fat deposits from the upper eyelids to lift droopy eyelids while the lower eyelid lift addresses under-eye hollows or heavy bags. Combining these procedures with an eyelid lift will give you a more elevated, youthful appearance.


Injectables like Botox or hyaluronic acid fillers are non-surgical treatment options that can be combined with a brow lift to simultaneously add volume or smooth fine lines around the eyes and brows. These injectable fillers can also be used to treat wrinkles and deep folds around the mouth, nose, cheeks, and jawline for full-face rejuvenation.
