A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, can address wrinkles, fine lines, deep furrows, or drooping skin along the upper part of the face. These common signs of age and stress can impact the aesthetics of the entire face and make individuals appear older, more tired, or even angrier than they actually are. With a brow lift, Midland plastic surgeon Kevin Cook, MD can give you a smoother and more youthful complexion while achieving results that look exceptionally natural. If you are seeking to reverse signs of aging or exhaustion, a brow lift can provide a more refreshed and energized appearance. Some of our patients at Midland Plastic Surgery Center even choose to combine a brow lift with cosmetic injectables to maximize their results.
Benefits of Brow Lift
Most of our brow lift patients are in their 40s or 50s; however, patients in their 20s and 30s may also benefit from this surgery. A brow lift offers benefits including:
- Smoother skin above and between the brows
- Reduction of creases on the forehead
- Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- A more energized, youthful appearance

Brow Lift Procedure
Brow lift surgery typically utilizes an incision just above the hairline to minimize any visual scarring. During the procedure, excess skin is removed, underlying facial muscles are tightened, and the remaining skin is lifted to achieve a smoother, firmer look. In most cases, a brow lift is performed as an outpatient surgery, requires a local anesthetic and a mild sedative, and takes about one to two hours to complete.
Recovery and Results
Immediately following your brow lift, you will likely experience some mild bruising and swelling. In the first few days following your procedure, Dr. Cook recommends patients keep their head elevated to reduce swelling and aid in the healing process. Some patients may experience temporary numbness after their procedure. Brow lift patients usually return to work or their daily activities within seven to ten days. Dr. Cook recommends avoiding any strenuous activity for three or four weeks to help ensure optimal healing. The results of brow lift surgery can help you maintain a less stressed, more youthful appearance for years to come.
