Brow Lift

Sagging eyebrows and wrinkles in your forehead can give you a tired or aged expression, even if you're wide awake and feel energized.

Plastic surgeon Arnold Lee can perform a brow lift to give you a more alert and youthful appearance.

Look and Feel Younger With a Brow Lift

As time passes, your forehead will naturally develop wrinkles and fine lines. These signs of aging can make you look older than you feel.

Sometimes referred to as a forehead lift, a brow lift can produce dramatic results in a relatively short amount of time. Brow lift surgery tightens the soft tissue in your forehead to reduce wrinkles. Frown lines, drooping brows, and folds in your forehead can be corrected by our plastic surgeon, Arnold Lee.

Dr. Lee performs endoscopic brow lifts, which have smaller incisions than traditional brow lifts, resulting in reduced scarring and easier recovery.

"Nothing short of outstanding." A 5-Star Review for Dr. Lee

"My experience with Dr. Lee has been nothing short of outstanding. He was extremely honest, helpful, accessible and accommodating throughout the whole process and wanted to make sure it was 100% safe before he did any work on me. He really takes the time to listen to your concerns, and never once did I feel rushed. He even gives patients his cell number for any questions/concerns that may come up. I couldn't be happier with the care and results I've received." Caroline L

Consider a Brow Lift If You Have These Cosmetic Concerns

Forehead Lines and Wrinkles

Brow lift surgery can smooth out crow's feet, forehead lines, and frown lines that appear on your upper face, all in a single procedure.

Drooping Brows

Hanging brows can give you a sad, angry, or sleepy look, which may not reflect how you're really feeling. A brow lift can readjust the distance between your eyes and brows, allowing you to express yourself more accurately.

A Prematurely Aged Appearance

Depending on your genetics and other factors out of your control, you may develop more noticeable wrinkles and other signs of aging earlier than expected. A brow lift can smooth out fine lines in your upper face, giving you a more youthful look. 

Is a Brow Lift the Same Thing  as a Blepharoplasty?

No. Forehead lifts are often confused with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). Both of these surgeries can help reduce drooping skin around the eyes.

However, a blepharoplasty focuses exclusively on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Eyelid surgery does not address frown lines and wrinkles of the forehead.

Patients who combine brow and eyelid surgeries can experience excellent results by eliminating signs of aging in the forehead and around the eyes all at once. Ask our plastic surgeon if combining these treatments can better help you achieve your cosmetic goals.

What to Expect  During an Endoscopic Brow Lift 

This style of brow lift uses smaller incisions and has a faster recovery time than traditional brow lift surgeries. 

Day of Procedure

This style of brow lift uses smaller incisions and has a faster recovery time than traditional brow lift surgeries. 


Before your brow lift procedure, you will receive anesthesia to make your plastic surgery virtually painless. You can receive local or general anesthesia, allowing you to be awake or asleep during your brow lift. Our team will monitor you closely throughout your procedure, ensuring your safety from start to finish. 


A series of small incisions will be made behind your hairline so Dr. Lee can access the tissue beneath your forehead. 


Using specialized endoscopic equipment, Dr. Lee will gently release and elevate the tissue in your brow, smoothing over creases and lines that appear on your upper face. After these adjustments are complete, he will use sutures to tighten your underlying muscle tissue. 

Skin Lift

After the muscles are tightened, Dr. Lee will lift the skin on your brow and trim the excess away. Once your skin has been adjusted into optimal position, our plastic surgeon will close the incisions behind your hairline. 

Recovering From Brow Lift Surgery

Dr. Lee will provide detailed recovery instructions after your brow lift. Here are some helpful tips for you to follow:


You will need to rest for the first few days after your procedure to ensure a successful recovery. We also recommend having someone keep you company after surgery while your sedation wears off. 

Sleep Upright

To reduce swelling, bleeding, and discomfort during your recovery, Dr. Lee advises elevating your head while you sleep for the first few weeks after your surgery. 


It's normal to experience some discomfort after brow lift surgery. You may be prescribed medication to help you manage pain during the early stages of your recovery.

Cold Compress

In addition to prescription or over-the-counter medication, you can use cold compresses to manage swelling and inflammation. 

Covering the Cost of Brow Lift Surgery


Cosmetic surgery can elevate your self-esteem and improve your quality of life. These benefits are the top reasons why patients choose to undergo procedures like brow lifts. We accept CareCredit, which splits the cost of treatment into manageable monthly payments. Thanks to financing, you can enjoy the benefits of cosmetic surgery with a plan that fits your budget.
