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 a neck lift, lower facelift and an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) Dec 2019 by Doctor Rosenbaum. If I would have known how little pain and downtime involved with this surgery I would have done this 5 years ago. I was out to dinner with friends within 4 days! I love the results and I already have 2 friends signed up to do their facelift. My husband tells me how beautiful I am everyday and friends tell me how young I look (15 years younger) or the people that don’t know keep asking what skin care products are you using? I did not even want to look at myself in the mirror and now I welcome the mirror. Smile lines gone, sagging Jowls gone and my Neck! I never thought it was possible to have a neck with no wrinkles. I’m am so pleased not only with the results but the interaction throughout the whole process with Doctor Rosenbaum. I interviewed plastic surgeons in Boca Raton that friends told me about and I was so uncomfortable so I put it off (years passed and more and more Botox). Then a lightbulb went off and I remembered Doctor Rosenbaum and within that moment I knew I was going to have him perform my facelift surgery. When I went into his office to talk to him I was at ease (still a little nervous) but I trusted him that he had my best interest at heart and he understood exactly what I wanted. So if I can say two things Doctor Rosenbaum is your doctor for your facelift and if you are nervous don’t wait. Also his staff Yoli and Noora were so wonderful I can’t say enough good things."- K.S. / Google / Jan 09, 2020
"I couldn’t be happier with the care, service and outcome I received from Dr. Rosenbaum and his entire staff. Time and nursing several babies took its toll and I decided to get a few consults for a breast lift. Dr. Rosenbaum made me feel extremely comfortable. He took the time to explain everything and answer all my questions. I never felt rushed, pressured to make a decision, or pushed to do anything. Dr. Rosenbaum listened to my concerns and helped me decide the best course for me. I felt well prepared for what to expect after surgery. I went home the same day and had no pain from the breast lift. The care and attentiveness provided by Dr. Rosenbaum made me certain I had made the right choice in choosing him as my surgeon. Special mention for Nora who helped coordinate appointments and hospital scheduling, and Yoli who made herself available for anything and everything, and always with a warm smile. The entire staff was warm, professional and as helpful as could be. I couldn’t be more pleased for having this cosmetic procedure done by Dr. Rosenbaum. Highly recommend!"- M.R. / Google / Dec 19, 2019

"I had a great experience with Dr. Gary R. He is an excellent surgeon and is a perfectionist. I am really amazed with the results of my breast reduction. He exceeded my expectations! His staff was also very caring and very willing to help. Without a doubt I recommend Dr. Gary for anyone who is looking to get breast surgery."- F.A. / Google / Dec 13, 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.
