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

"Still me, only younger! My main fear when I considered a lower facelift was not looking like myself after surgery. But while the surgery did change how I looked in terms of how old I looked, I was tremendously happy with how natural and refreshed my face looked. My skin is more taught, the sagginess in my neck is gone and the jowls are gone. Dr. Rosenbaum far exceeded my expectations in skill and professionalism. I am very happy with the results. I look 15 years younger. Thank you Dr. Rosenbaum!"- G. / Healthgrades / Feb 07, 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.
