About Brow Lift Surgery
Deep forehead wrinkles and a drooping brow line can cause an angry, tired facial expression. Dr. Gary Rosenbaum, our board-certified plastic surgeon and the founder of Gary J. Rosenbaum, M.D., P.A. Plastic Surgery in Miami Beach, FL, can address this common condition with brow lift surgery. During this surgical procedure, the skin of the brow and forehead will be tightened, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and lifting the brow into a more natural position. During a consultation with Dr. Rosenbaum, patients can discuss whether or not a brow lift will provide them with the aesthetic results they desire.
The best candidates for brow lift (sometimes called a forehead lift) surgery:
- Have excess skin creating folds and creases
- Droopy eyelids and eyebrows
- Dynamic wrinkles on their brow
- Want a long-lasting solution
- Do not need a full facelift

"I had implants done with him and am so happy with my choice. Dr. Rosenbaum was referred to me by a very accomplished New York plastic surgeon, who specializes in breast surgery. I live in South Florida and wanted to do my surgery here. I had such a great experience with Dr. Rosenbaum and am so thankful. He is thorough, knowledgeable, made me feel extremely comfortable during the entire process, and most importantly, gave me beautiful results! Exactly what I asked for."- J. / Healthgrades / Sep 03, 2018
"It's not easy finding a doctor who you can trust these days but I have to say Dr. Rosenbaum exceeded my expectations. At our first meeting he was honest and forthright in what his outcome for my breast augmentation would be. I've had several surgeries and at this point I was a bit hesitant as to what Dr. Rosenbaum was able to fix. After fifteen years of having implants I removed them in December. As you know with age things don't look the same so I opted to put them back in after being out seven months. The results after surgery were amazing!!! I am so happy to have my body back to normal. Dr. Rosenbaum and his staff were very professional and I would recommend him. Especially if you have a challenging case he is your go to doctor to fix it. I'm so grateful for making me look and feel beautiful again."- C.R. / Google / Aug 09, 2018
"At 72...a tummy tuck was not on my bucket list...but 2 abdominal surgeries left me with a large hernia and my general surgeon said I would get the best result by having a plastic surgeon do the "tuck" at the same time. He recommended Dr. Rosenbaum and I am so happy he did. The result is AMAZING! The surgery was more complicated than expected and Dr. R went above and beyond to make sure I had the best result..which I did. I highly recommend him."- B.K. / Healthgrades / Jul 25, 2018
"At the age of 50 the last thing a woman wants to hear is that she has breast cancer, but I was immensely blessed that I was referred to Dr. Rosenbaum. He and his staff are a blessing. To me Dr. Rosenbaum is the best surgeon anyone can have. He is very caring and knowledgable and his staff very professional and accommodating to your needs. Look no further, you can not find in Florida a better surgeon than Dr. Rosenbaum and his staff"- E.R. / Healthgrades / May 16, 2018
What To Expect
Most brow lift surgeries are performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient surgery at an accredited hospital or surgical center. Small incisions are placed in low visibility areas, such as behind the hairline or in the eyebrows. The most common brow lift techniques are the open brow lift, limited incision brow lift, and endoscopic brow lift, one of which will be chosen based on the patient's goals and their individual features. Once the incisions are made, Dr. Rosenbaum will remove any excess skin, then smooth and re-position the muscles and soft tissue to erase wrinkles while elevating the eyebrows to an appropriate level.
Brow lift surgery usually takes about two hours. Once the patient has been cleared by Dr. Rosenbaum, they may be taken home by a responsible adult to recover at home. Most patients take 1 – 3 weeks to recover after a brow lift, but they are generally able to drive and return to work in two weeks. For the first days after the surgery, patients should expect some temporary bruising, discomfort, tightness, and numbness. Dr. Rosenbaum will talk to each patient about what they need to do during their recovery and provide tips for an easier recovery. Patients will need to return for a follow-up appointment in one week to have their sutures removed and have their healing progress checked. While visible improvements can be seen immediately, the final results of the brow lift are usually seen about 4 – 6 months after the surgery.
Plan Your Procedure
Awake, Alert, Ageless
Many patients fear that a brow lift will leave them looking permanently surprised, unnaturally wide eyed, or like they obviously had plastic surgery. A plastic surgeon with experience in brow lift surgery, such as Dr. Rosenbaum, will focus on creating a younger, natural-looking appearance that refreshes the face. Using simulation software, Dr. Rosenbaum and the patient can decide how dramatic or how subtle they want the results to be. After brow lift surgery, patients will look more awake, more alert, and more like the age they feel. During a complimentary consultation at our Miami Beach facility, patients can decide whether brow lift surgery can provide the results they seek.
