What is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift or browplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at rejuvenating the appearance of the forehead, eyebrows, and upper eyelids. This procedure is typically sought by individuals who are bothered by sagging brows, forehead wrinkles, and drooping eyelids, which can contribute to a tired or aged appearance. During a brow lift, various techniques may be employed, including traditional or endoscopic methods. These techniques involve making small incisions either along the hairline or within the scalp, allowing the surgeon to access and reposition the underlying tissues, tighten muscles, and remove excess skin. By elevating the eyebrows and smoothing forehead wrinkles, a brow lift can create a more youthful, refreshed, and alert appearance. Additionally, it can improve the symmetry and balance of the facial features, enhancing overall facial harmony.

What's Involved in a Brow Lift?

Dr. Yaghoubian typically includes the following steps in her Brow Lift:

Consultation and Evaluation:

The process begins with a consultation with Dr. Yaghoubian to discuss your concerns, goals, and medical history. Dr. Yaghoubian will evaluate your candidacy for a brow lift and discuss the most suitable technique based on your individual anatomy and desired outcome.

Incisions and Tissue Repositioning:

Dr. Yaghoubian will make carefully planned incisions within the hairline or along the scalp. Through these incisions, the underlying tissues of the forehead and brow area are lifted and repositioned to create a smoother, more youthful appearance.


Before the procedure begins, anesthesia is administered to ensure your comfort. This may include local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on your preferences and the specific technique chosen.

Excess Skin Removal and Closure:

Any excess skin contributing to forehead wrinkles or hooded eyelids is trimmed away, and the incisions are meticulously closed with sutures or surgical staples. Dr. Yaghoubian ensures minimal tension on the skin to promote optimal healing and minimize scarring.
