A brow lift or forehead lift is a relatively simple surgical procedure where the tissues and muscles of the forehead are adjusted and excess skin removed to create the desired ‘lifted’ effect. There is also the option of endoscopic brow lift that minimizes incisions and hides the scars behind the hairline. These procedure can address a furrowed brow, brow asymmetry, frown lines and drooping brows. A consultation with Dr. Lemckert, ENT – Facial Plastic Surgeon, will ascertain if a forehead or brow lift surgery will optimally address your skin objectives.

How It Works
Depending on the brow lift or forehead lift technique incisions may be made in various positions on the forehead or scalp, but always care is taken to hide the incision lines. They are generally hidden in the hairline or behind the hairline to minimize the appearance of scars. Muscles which cause undesired frown lines can be interrupted to minimize these. Excess skin on the forehead can be reduced to smooth the skin and the brows can be lifted for an improved and rejuvenated appearance.
