A brow-lift, also known as a forehead lift or browplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to elevate a drooping eyebrow that may obstruct vision and/or to remove the deep “worry” lines that run across the forehead and may portray to others anger, sternness, hostility, fatigue or other unintended emotions.
Patients commonly request rejuvenation surgery on the forehead because the area is large enough to comprise the major focal and expression point of the face, the eyes notwithstanding. Given time and gravity, the muscles that hold the forehead smooth become loose and weak, allowing deep wrinkles to appear. Correction of a wrinkled forehead usually leads to a more youthful look. Patients requesting the procedure commonly range in age from 40 to 60.
A forehead lift is often used in combination with eyelid surgery to reduce sagging skin found on the upper eyelids.
