What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift (also known as a forehead lift or browplasty) is a popular cosmetic treatment that can help you create a higher-brow appearance, reducing the tired or angry appearance a sagging brow tends to create. This surgical procedure gives you a rejuvenated face by removing excess skin from the forehead and raising the eyebrows. Plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang has provided many Atlanta, GA men and women with brow lifts, giving them a youthful look to the upper portion of their face. Injectable wrinkle relaxers and fillers can be used along with a forehead lift to create a smoother, softer, longer-lasting appearance.

Can I Have A Brow Lift?
As we age, skin elasticity decreases and can cause many aspects of our face to sag. This is particularly common in the upper face and tends to typically affect both men and women. When looking in a mirror, do you appear tired or angry? Do you notice frown lines between the brows? Are bothered by your sagging brow? If you answered yes to any of these, a brow lift at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery may be the ideal cosmetic treatment for you. Call Dr. Mang today to find out more.
Prior to your brow lift, anesthesia will be administered. This can be done under IV sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the nature of the procedure. The incision used will vary, depending on the severity of sag, if the forehead is affected, and the appearance of the patient's hairline. Some of the techniques used are:
- Traditional Incision
Also known as the open brow lift incision, a surgical incision is placed behind the hairline at the top of the head. This incision conceals scarring and provides a certain degree of controlled lifting throughout the procedure. The open incision is good for those with both frown lines and a sagging brow or who are concerned about a receding hairline.
- Trichophytic Incision
The trichophytic incision is made directly against the hairline. It allows for the more dramatic lifting of the brow for patients who have a low risk for hairline recession.
- Lateral Brow Lift
Also known as a temporal browplasty, the lateral technique starts the incision in the hairline just over the temples. A temporal incision permits the outer sections of the brow to be raised and is best for sagging that is present in the outer brow. It also helps to smooth Crow’s feet.
- Endoscopic Forehead Lift
The endoscopic lift is a more modern technique used in brow lift surgery. It makes multiple tiny incisions in the hairline and inserts a tool known as an endoscope, which is pushed to the eyebrow to release its attachments. Through the endoscope's camera, the brow tissue is suspended using stitches to lift the brow in a better position.
What to Expect
The recovery period after brow lift surgery varies with the most discomfort and swelling occurring with the open approach compared to the temporal or endoscopic techniques. In general, there will be slight bruising and swelling in the upper portion of the face around the eyebrows and sometimes near the eyes. Cold compresses may help to diminish the inflammation. Dr. Mang advises patients to sleep upright for at least three nights following their brow lift. It is critical to avoid any activities or movements that may place stress on your face. The average recovery time from this procedure is about 2 – 3 weeks. The outcome can usually be seen right away with a rejuvenated appearance that seems more alert, softer, and with a noticeable improvement in sagging skin and fine lines in the upper half of the face.
Brow Lift FAQ
How much does a brow lift cost?
It's better to focus on finding a skilled surgeon, like Dr. Mang, who can give you the results you want rather than going with the lowest price. Your costs for brow lift surgery will vary based on the technique used, anesthesia, facility fees, and other factors. When your treatment plan has been created during your consultation, cost estimates can be discussed. Dr. Mang will also go over payment methods and where to apply for low-interest medical financing — so your surgery is easier to afford.
Do I need a brow lift or facelift?
Whether you need a facelift or brow lift will depend on where you have sagging skin as well as your goals. You should candidly discuss your wants with Dr. Mang, so he can help you choose what is best for you. Some patients who come in thinking they want a full facelift may find they only need a brow lift and vice versa. With his years of experience, Dr. Mang can confidently help you decide on your unique treatment plan to give you your best results.
What about nonsurgical treatments?
You may consider one of the many nonsurgical options, including laser skin tightening and injectables (like BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM®), that can provide some improvements. However, a surgical brow lift is better for longer-lasting results and significant improvements. During your consultation, Dr. Mang can go over both your nonsurgical and surgical options to help you decide which is best for you.
What technique should I choose?
Dr. Mang will explain brow lift surgery techniques in your consultation, so you know the benefits. He will then help you decide on the best technique for your needs and goals. Some of the factors that might influence your choice are your hairline (taking into account both your current hairline as well as your risk of developing a receding hairline), the amount of loose skin, and the recovery time available.
Will my results look natural?
If you choose a skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. Mang, your brow lift results will look natural. He will create your treatment plan with the right technique for your needs and goals to help you look refreshed, not frozen or tight. During your brow lift, Dr. Mang will concentrate on removing excess skin. The remaining tissue and skin will be smoothed — so your results don't lift your eyebrows too high or limit your facial expressions.
