What is a brow lift?

A brow lift (forehead lift) can deliver a much more alert, youthful appearance. Over the years, the skin and muscles of the forehead tend to stretch and sag.

This can cause the entire forehead and eye area to take on a drooping look, making you seem overall sad or angry.

A brow lift is a surgical procedure in which these concerns can be addressed, and a more youthful countenance can be restored. 

Brow lift techniques 

During your consultation, she will discuss the ideal technique for your specific areas of concern and desired results, as well as what will work best for you based on your hairline and facial features. Dr. Hessler performs either a direct or indirect brow lift technique for her male patients.

Direct brow lift

In a direct or “open” brow lift, Dr. Hessler makes a small incision just above the eyebrow hair. From here, a small amount of fat and muscle are removed. The incision is typically hidden well in the wrinkle lines above the brow, or within the brow hairs. A direct brow lift is a particularly good option for older male patients who want to enhance their brows, or for balding men who want to raise their hairline.

Indirect brow lift

In an indirect brow lift (mid-face brow lift), Dr. Hessler makes an incision within the creases of the forehead, through which fat and excess skin are removed. The indirect brow lift is a great option for male patients who have a receding hairline, drooping brows, or significant forehead wrinkles.


The general recovery time for a brow lift is 10 to 14 days. After your procedure, your head will be dressed to prevent swelling. These dressings will need to remain on for a few days.

During recovery, bruising, swelling, numbness, headache, and nausea are all common — especially within the first week. You can expect to see final results in four months.
