A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, improves the appearance of the forehead, upper eyelids and brow line. The accumulated effects of sun exposure and natural aging may result in wrinkles, loss of elasticity and sagging brows. If you are looking to correct these facial changes, brow lift surgery may be a good option. Vaishali B. Doolabh, MD, FACS, has extensive experience with brow lifts, customizing each procedure to the needs of the patient to create a more youthful but natural-looking appearance.
Benefits of a Brow Lift:
- Reduces the wrinkle lines that develop horizontally across the forehead, as well as those that occur on the bridge of the nose, between the eyes
- Improves frown lines, the vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows
- Raises sagging brows that are hooding the upper eyelids
- Places the eyebrows in an alert and youthful position

More Frequently Asked Questions:
You may be a candidate for brow lift surgery if you:
- Have deep horizontal lines across the forehead or sagging brows
- Are physically healthy
- Have a positive outlook and realistic goals
For this procedure, incisions are placed in the hairline at the temples towards the sides of the face. Each surgery is individualized to meet the goals and needs of the patient.
To correct sagging of the outer brow line, Dr. Doolabh may recommend a lateral brow lift, also known as a temporal brow lift. It can produce an exotic look to the outer arch of the brow while reducing wrinkles in the outer forehead and upper eyelid sagging not relieved by a traditional eyelid lift. Unlike a traditional brow lift, a lateral brow lift will not raise the middle of your brow but will help alleviate the creasing at the outer corners of your eyes.
If drooping eyebrows are causing your hooded eyes, a brow lift or forehead lift may be the appropriate procedure. However, sometimes excess skin on the upper eyelid can be the cause of hooded eyes and eyelid surgery may be the better option. A consultation with Dr. Doolabh will help determine which procedure would achieve your desired results.
A traditional brow lift will not change the overall shape of your eyes. The goal of a lift is to place the eyebrows in a more alert, youthful position and reduce wrinkle lines throughout the upper face. A lateral brow lift can achieve a more dramatic change by only lifting the outer arch of the brow.
BOTOX® injections cannot address the skin laxity issues or produce the lift that this surgical procedure can. However, BOTOX® can be used in conjunction with a brow lift to further relax wrinkles in the forehead and between the eyebrows. For patients who have received brow lift surgery in the past, BOTOX® injections are great at extending the life of the lift and maintaining a youthful facial appearance.
The cost of a brow lift or forehead lift can vary depending on the extent of surgery required. To determine the exact cost of treatment, we invite you to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Doolabh in Jacksonville, FL. During your consultation, Dr. Doolabh will help develop a personalized plan to satisfy your unique cosmetic goals. The expected procedure cost can then be provided at that time.
During your brow lift recovery, your forehead may be taped and/or your head may be loosely wrapped to minimize swelling and bruising after the procedure is completed. You should keep your head elevated and perform no vigorous physical activity according to Dr. Doolabh’s instructions.
You will be given specific instructions that may include:
- How to care for the surgical site and drains
- Medications to apply or take orally
- Specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health
- When to follow up with Dr. Doolabh
As with any surgical procedure, you can expect some post-surgical scarring. However, the scars from a brow lift are minimal and are usually well-hidden in the hairline or natural skin creases around the eyelid. The best way to keep scars from worsening is to closely follow Dr. Doolabh’s post-operative recovery plan.
