Forehead/Brow Lift Surgery

The forehead and brow can have a significant impact on the youthfulness of the face. When deep lines or furrows develop and the forehead tissue begins to sag, it can move the eyebrows lower and make the eyes appear less defined. A forehead or brow lift can reduce deep lines and improve the shape of the eyebrows for a more youthful appearance. Dr. Rousso uses advanced techniques to create a natural-looking improvement in the brow and eyes that can help our patients appear years younger.

As the tissues in the forehead begin to droop, the eyebrows can lower. This can put pressure on the upper eyelid and increase sagging around the eyes. The result may be a change in the resting expression of the face. You may look upset, angry or tired, even when you are happy and well-rested. A brow lift moves the tissue and muscle of the brow to elevate the eyebrows back to a more youthful position, usually on the brow rim. In some cases, excess skin is removed, but each procedure is tailored to the needs of the patient. Once elevated, the brow can appear smoother and the eyes more open, helping the patient look more like a younger version of themselves.

Incorporating a Brow Lift with Other Procedures

Forehead or brow lifts are rarely a stand-alone procedure. If the brow has sagged, it is common that the upper eyelid has also drooped or gained excess skin. Brow lifts can be incorporated with an eyelid lift surgery or to complement a midface lift or complete facelift. The ideal combination can create a look that gives you a refreshed appearance without looking stretched or pulled. Dr. Rousso puts extensive emphasis on creating a natural appearance for our patients with brow lifts and other cosmetic enhancements.

If you want to enjoy the confidence of looking like a younger version of yourself again, a brow lift may be one of the options to give you the results you desire. Contact our NYC office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rousso to determine if a forehead lift is right for you.
