Quick Facts

Quick Info

  • A brow lift is a procedure to help your eyebrows move into a higher position on your forehead, and to help reduce the appearance of horizontal lines in your brow.
  • As we age, our brow tends to descend, creating a tired or angry look. A brow lift moves the brow back up to a more youthful position.
  • A brow lift surgery takes about 1-2 hours to perform at our AAAHC accredited surgery center. The recovery is only about one week long.
  • People usually combine a brow lift with an eyelid surgery to help their upper or lower eyelids. This completes the rejuvenation of the upper face.


Deep creases and folds on the forehead that result from the natural aging process can make people appear much older than they actually are. Fortunately, these individuals can undergo brow lift surgery to take years off their appearance. Also known as a forehead lift, brow lift surgery can correct droopy brows, lines on the forehead, and heavy upper eyelids for a dramatically younger and more vibrant appearance.

Before Brow Lift Surgery

Those interested in brow lift surgery must meet with our surgeons for an initial evaluation prior to the procedure. We strive to provide the best brow lift Bakersfield, Fresno and Stockton has to offer, and having all patients meet one-on-one with the surgeon helps achieve this. During the evaluation, our surgeons will determine whether or not the patient is a suitable candidate for a brow lift. Ideal candidates are those who are in good health, over 40 years of age, and who have wrinkles, creases, and sagging skin on their forehead and near their eyebrows.

Also during the initial brow lift consultation, our surgeons will discuss what the procedure entails and evaluate the patient's goals for surgery. Our surgeons will take the time to answer any questions or concerns the patient may have. Our surgeons want you to receive the best brow lift Bakersfield, Fresno and Stockton provides, and work with you to attain that. Contact our practice to schedule an evaluation with one of our skilled surgeons.

Brow Lift Procedure

During brow lift surgery, the surgeon creates two small incisions in your hair above the hairline. Next, the surgeon removes specified sections of muscle and skin near the eyebrows and pulls the skin taut to smooth out any wrinkles on the forehead. Sometimes an anchor is placed to hold the brow in place. The incision is then sutured shut with precise closing techniques. The entire process is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia and takes approximately one hour.

For optimal results, brow lift surgery at our Bakersfield, Fresno and Stockton plastic surgery practices can be combined with other procedures we offer, such as facelift surgery, fat transfer injections, cosmetic eyelid surgery, or dermal fat injections. Contact us to learn more about these procedures.

Brow Lift Recovery and Results

After brow lift surgery, patients enjoy a more youthful appearance. Full results become apparent a few weeks after the surgery. Patients should keep their head elevated for a few days after surgery to reduce any bruising and swelling. Our surgeons will prescribe pain medication to help ease any discomfort patients experience after surgery. Patients can schedule a follow-up appointment one week after the surgery to have the stitches removed and can normally return to work and resume their normal activities at this time.
