Brow Lift (Forehead lift) Surgery


Brow lift is a popular facial cosmetic surgery procedure among men and women to rejuvenate the upper face and remove the frown lines or unwanted lines on their forehead which give unwanted expressions.

Often, the brow and forehead area show early signs of ageing, which includes wrinkles, frown lines or heaviness of the eye brows. Few people have deep lines or "worry lines" on their forehead, which sometimes portray unintended emotions. With age, the skin above the eyes, begin to droop making the eyes look tired and face look old, commonly known as hood effect.

Brow lift also popularly known as forehead lift, elevates the eyebrows and the area above the eyes giving the face a youthful appearance. The procedure involves lifting the brow, tightening the skin and loose muscles in the area thereby reducing the wrinkles on the forehead, heavy eyebrows, frown lines, deep furrows and sagging. There are different techniques of doing the procedure- it can be done either as open brow lift surgery or through an endoscope and thus called as endoscopic brow lift surgery.

It is quite advantageous for you to get the brow lift plastic surgery abroad in India as the cost of brow lift in India is much less as compared to the cost of brow lift surgery in UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada or any other western country for the same quality of services and equally skilled surgeons. You would stay at the hospital/ clinic for 1 or 2 nights for brow lift which is part of the surgical cost. Another week in India is required before you can fly back to your country. Thus, a total of eight days are required for brow lift surgery overseas in India.


Men and women usually above 40 who look tired, older or whose forehead portrays unintended emotions can undergo brow lift plastic surgery. However, even if you are younger but have concerns with your forehead or eyebrows whether inherited or not can undergo brow lift. The best candidates for brow lift surgery are those who are physically fit, emotionally stable and understand the procedure well.


Brow lift is usually done under general anesthesia and takes anywhere between two to three hours. The time varies with the kind of technique used to perform the procedure- whether open or endoscopic. Which technique is best for you depend on your skin type, your hairline and the texture of your skin.


In an open brow lift plastic surgery, an incision is made from one ear along the hairline to the other ear, such that it is well hidden in the natural creases of your skin. The surgeon then separates the skin from the underlying muscles and tissues, removes extra fat, if any and tightens the muscles. The skin is stretched and stitched in place.


In an endoscopic Brow lift, the surgeon makes 3-5 small incisions on the forehead and through these incisions, endoscope is inserted and the surgeon operates on the muscles and fat in the area. The eyebrows are then lifted and held in place with stitches. The technique is lesser invasive as compared to the open technique and requires lesser downtime and early recovery.
