An ideal candidate for a brow lift (forehead lift) is a person with very severe "hooding" of the upper eyelid. Such people will benefit from both brow lift and/or blepharoplasty. If you have brow lines and eyelids that sag noticeably and wrinkles or creases appear along the forehead, you could be a good candidate for a brow lift. The average age for this surgery is between 40 to 70. During this procedure, the brow is elevated, and the "worry lines" and forehead wrinkles are smoothed out for a vastly improved appearance.

A brow lift will not solve personal problems or psychological issues. A patient needs to determine how important is the need to change and how bothered would he or she be if they didn't got for this procedure. In order to get to the muscles that need lifting, several small incisions are made in the scalp. An endoscope is introduced through one of the small incisions and the operating instrument through the other. The brow muscles are surgically altered. The skin is closed after fixing it in position. With the brow lift procedure, there is no long scar, no ‘pulling back' on the forehead skin, and no hair loss. The basis of the procedure is altering the balance between brow depressors and brow elevators.

Like all surgeries there are risks associated with brow lift surgery. The primary risk with this procedure is infection. Skin and nerve damage are also possible risks. The risks and benefits of brow lift surgery should be thoroughly weighed before you decide if the procedure is right for you. Complications from brow lift surgery are rare, and not severe. The benefits of brow lifts are a more youthful and relaxed appearance as a brow lift will tighten loose and sagging forehead skin, lift the eyebrow line, and reduce or eliminate forehead wrinkles and creasing between the eyebrows. Brow lift involves a relatively short recovery process and patients usually experience minimal discomfort. Brow lift will make you appear years younger, but will not dramatically change your appearance.

A candidate must bear in mind the financial investment for this surgery. Financing options are more readily available now than ever before making brow lift surgery affordable to many more.
