The appearance of aging lines or furrows between the brows and horizontal lines on the forehead may make you appear older, tired and angry. Brow lift or forehead lift surgery is an ideal procedure to reverse these effects and restore a tighter and smoother appearance of your upper face.
During the initial consultation, your surgeon will determine whether you are a fit candidate for brow lift. In some cases, they may recommend brow lift in conjunction with eyelid lift to create more harmonious results. Sometimes, Botox injections may also be a prudent choice, if you want to avoid surgery. Your surgeon will give you the right advice according to your aesthetic goals and your unique facial issues.

People who are 40 or above usually make good candidates for brow lift or forehead lift plastic surgery. At this age, brow line typically begins to droop, and conspicuous wrinkles and fine lines may appear along the forehead. A few candidates may be only in their 20s or 30s when they need brow lift, if the problem of sagging brows runs in the family.
An ideal candidate will have realistic expectations and will be committed to following the surgeon’s pre- and post-surgery care instructions. If you suffer from one or more of the following conditions, you could be a candidate for a brow lift / forehead lift:
- Droopy brows
- Older or tired look on the face
- Heavy upper lids
- Deep horizontal lines on the forehead
- Visible furrows between the brows
- Vision obstruction caused by heavily sagging brows
Correction of Forehead Lines
Fine lines and wrinkles along the forehead may emerge over the years because of repetitive expressions and the forehead skin becoming loose. You may start feeling self-conscious due to these apparent aging signs.
While Botox and dermal filler injections are a good way to address these conditions, they will only produce limited improvement and the effects will last for a shorter duration. If you are seeking more sustainable and substantial enhancement in the upper face appearance, a brow lift or forehead lift may be the right solution for you.
Reversing Dull and Tired Upper Face Appearance
Underlying muscles in your forehead will become loose as you age, which will create an older or less alert looking upper face appearance. It will also cause sagging of your brows.
Even if you may be feeling refreshed and youthful from inside, this appearance will make your face appear dull and tired. If you want your outer appearance of the upper face to reflect youthfulness, brow lift cosmetic surgery may be your best option.
Additional Candidacy Requirements
You should be in good general health, have a positive mindset and clear aesthetic goals if you want to achieve satisfactory results from your brow lift. To be an ideal candidate, you should avoid smoking for a few weeks before and after the surgery and follow your surgeon’s preparation and recovery guidelines.
