What is a brow lift?

A brow lift, or “forehead lift,” is a cosmetic procedure that lifts the forehead and the eyebrows to create a more refreshed appearance. When the eyebrow line begins to sag from aging, it can make you look tired and weathered. A brow lift can restore a more youthful appearance, smoothing the wrinkles and lines on the brow and between the eyes. These can be performed as a traditional brow lift or as an endoscopic brow lift—a less invasive procedure.

What are the benefits of a brow lift?

Benefits of a brow lift include:

  • Improved appearance and reduced wrinkles
  • Correcting droopy or heavy brows
  • Enhanced symmetry
  • Improvement of vision due to raised brows
  • Increased confidence and self-esteem

Am I a candidate for a brow lift?

If you suffer from any of the following aesthetic issues, you may be a good candidate for a brow lift in Miami with Dr. Paul Afrooz:

  • Sagging skin on the forehead, onto the brow area
  • Heavily creased brow
  • Eyebrows have descended lower
  • Wrinkled brow skin
  • Heavy, overhanging brow tissue

What can I expect during my brow lift? 

During a brow lift in Miami, incisions are made along the hairline. The skin is lifted and tightened, and the incisions are closed with stitches. During an endoscopic brow lift, much smaller incisions are made within the hairline. This procedure requires advanced surgical techniques, takes less time to perform, and has a faster recovery. Many people are good candidates for this approach, which has the advantage of not requiring any of your hair to be shaved to perform the surgery.

Brow Lift Recovery

After your brow lift in Coral Gables, you can expect a recovery period of about two weeks. We recommend that you get as much rest as possible during this time, as it allows the incisions to heal properly.

It is essential to be gentle around the incision area, especially when washing your hair. After an endoscopic brow lift, the bruising or swelling lasts just a few days after treatment, and you can enjoy the full results within a week or so. Both procedures offer long-lasting, natural-looking results, although they do not prevent further aging on the forehead area.

Temple Lift in Miami

Many patients can achieve a youthful smoothness in the middle brow by getting BOTOX injections. However, the corner or outer area of the brow can begin to sag or fall, making us look sad. This outer area of the brow, around the temples, can be lifted to match the smoothness of the mid or center brow. This procedure is called a temple lift.

During the temple lift, one small incision is made in the hairline. Dr. Afrooz will then use this incision to go under the skin and raise the corners of the brow to achieve a more lifted, naturally-youthful appearance.

For many patients, the temple lift is enough to achieve the maximum benefits of a traditional brow lift when combined with Botox treatments that target the center of the brow.
