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

"Barbara SorianoWhen I lost over 30 lbs a couple years ago, I was not happy with the way my neck and my breast looked. I started researching plastic surgeons that could help me with a neck and breast lift. I consulted a few in New York and New Jersey, but wasn’t satisfied with what they were offering. Then, after taking my cousin’s advice, I started to look for a doctor in Miami. That’s how I came across Dr. Rosenbaum I read all his credentials and reviews, and I wrote an email to his staff. From the first response I got from Gladys, I felt confident that I had found the place to have my surgery. Not long after, I flew to Miami to meet Dr. Rosenbaum. Everything was great— his office, his staff ,the way he spent time with me explaining the surgery and recuperation, the fact that he does his surgeries in Mt Sinai OR and you stay overnight. Not to mention, the personalized care and attention. I was sure I had found the doctor I was looking for. Dr. Rosenbaum is caring, professional, experienced, and a lovely person. I must also praise his staff. Nora was upfront about all costs and explained the financial aspects of the procedure in a simple, honest way. Yoli, his nurse, is lovely, and very professional , while Gladys was there for me every time I needed her before and after my procedure. I am so glad I flew from New York to Miami to have my 2 procedures with Dr. Rosenbaum, and could not be happier with the results! He’s changed my life and confidence.!"- B.S. / Google / Jun 05, 2019

"Dr Rosenbaum changed my life for the best. I got exactly what I wished for and I couldn’t be more pleased with my amazing breast reduction results. From myfirst consultation, I knew I had chosen the right surgeon. Not only is he very professional, it is obvious that he’s an expert in breast surgery from his detailed explanation of the procedure. He made me feel comfortable from the start of my journey. The staff was also incredible, Yoli was always available to answer any post of questions."- C.N. / Google / May 26, 2019
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.
