How Is a Brow Lift Performed?

A brow lift (or forehead lift) is performed on an outpatient basis under sedation with local anesthesia.

Brow lift techniques include:

  • Endoscopic brow lift: Several short incisions are placed in the hairline. The operation is performed using an endoscope (a narrow, hollow instrument with a fiber-optic light source and camera. The surgeon uses small instruments specially designed to fit under the forehead. The forehead tissue is lifted and re-positioned, and the muscles that cause frown lines are weakened or partially removed.
  • Coronal brow lift: The incisions are usually made behind the hairline. For patients with high foreheads, the incisions may be placed in front of the hairline.

What Is Brow Lift Recovery Like?

With a forehead lift, the patient leaves the recovery area with the head wrapped in dressings, which are usually removed on the first or second day after surgery. Initial discomfort is usually controlled with oral medication.

Sutures or staples are removed within 5 to 7 days. Most swelling and bruising are gone within 7 to 10 days but may last for several weeks. Camouflage makeup is available to temporarily conceal any redness or bruising once the sutures have been removed.

Insurance Guidelines

If a brow lift or forehead lift is being done to improve the field of vision, insurance may cover the surgery. Otherwise, the surgeries are considered cosmetic procedures and the patient is responsible for payment.

While we no longer participate with insurance, we do offer a self-pay option to give patients the opportunity to receive insurance benefits for medically necessary procedures. With the self-pay option, patients have their procedure performed in the hospital by our physicians. Patients pay upfront for physician fees and are responsible for initiating the reimbursement request with their insurance company. If you have questions or would like to explore this option, please call us at (734) 712-2323.
