Brow lift surgery revitalizes the forehead and upper face by removing sagging skin, firming the muscles, and trimming excess fatty tissue to reveal a brighter, more youthful countenance. At Peak Plastic Surgery Center, we use a precision-oriented, meticulously detailed approach to ensure balance, symmetry, and elegance.

What is a Brow Lift?

Dr. Locketz will perform one of three types of brow lifts: an endoscopic lift, a temporal lift, or a coronal lift. The surgery is designed to rejuvenate the upper face, smoothing away heavy folds, lines, and wrinkles while tightening and toning the underlying muscles. It is often performed in conjunction with blepharoplasty to accomplish comprehensive improvement in the facial expression.

How is a Brow Lift Performed?

Dr. Locketz will choose the best surgical approach based on your goals, concerns, and unique anatomy. 

Endoscopic Lift

Here, Dr. Locketz will create small incisions well hidden within the hairline. A slender tubular camera (endoscope) will be inserted that affords him improved accuracy when viewing and manipulating the tissue and muscle.

Temporal Lift

A temporal brow lift is often accompanied by eyelid surgery and relies on a one-inch incision above the temples within the hairline to reshape the outer brow area, reducing entrenched lines and creases.

Coronal Lift

The more conventional brow lift involves an incision stretching across the scalp from ear to ear that is well concealed by the hairline. Once the forehead skin has been lifted and pulled back, wrinkles, lines, and folds are reduced.

What is a Non-Surgical Brow Lift?

For patients who seek to look more youthful but who aren’t quite ready for invasive surgery and downtime, a non-surgical brow lift can temporarily improve the facial expression without incisions, scarring, or anesthesia risks. BOTOX is injected into the forehead muscle to relax the upper face. Each patient receives a unique injection pattern according to the areas most in need of refinement.
