What is a brow lift?

A brow lift reduces frown lines, horizontal lines on the forehead, and creases between the eyebrows while smoothing out upper-nose bridge creases. Eyebrows and eyelids are also gently lifted. Brow lifts are utilized for these ‘expression lines’ when injectables like BOTOX cannot achieve the desired look. A brow lift can:

  • Even out furrows and frown lines
  • Create more impactful changes than injectables 
  • Correct ‘heavy brows’

Brow lifts are also a very effective solution to ‘heavy’ brows. In some cases, the brow may hang low or sag over the eyes, which causes the face to look tired or heavily aged. Lifting the brow can restore a more youthful appearance that lasts for up to ten to twelve years.

The procedure

Dr. Markelov considers each patient’s skin quality, age, and desired look to determine the best way to conduct their procedure. He will make a discreet incision either along your hairline or across the top of your head. The length of the incision is determined by what corrections are needed. 

Dr. Markelov strives for minimal scarring and tries to keep the incisions as small as possible. The skin of the forehead is carefully lifted, and excess skin is removed from the scalp. Brow lifts are often performed in conjunction with facelifts and eyelid surgeries.
