At Dermacare Cosmetic Surgery, we offer traditional Full Brow Lift and a Minimally-Invasive Brow Lift (Lateral Brow Lift). Typically, the most evident sign of brow aging is descent and hooding of the outer third of the eyebrow. This exaggerates the wrinkling of the upper eyelid skin. The lateral brow (outer portion) usually descends more than the medial brow because that portion of the brow has no direct attachments to the forehead muscles or skull.
What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift, or forehead lift, repositions a low or sagging brow that is hooding the upper eyelid. When raised, the eyebrows appear in a more alert and youthful position. A brow lift will also minimize expression lines on the brow such as the vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows, the lines that develop across the forehead or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose.
Who is a good candidate for a Brow Lift?
If your brows are hooding the upper eyelids and make you look tired or your frown lines make you seem "too serious" or angry, then you may want to consider a brow lift. Schedule your consultation today with the experts at Dermacare Cosmetic Surgery!

What is a Minimally-Invasive Brow Lift?
For many of our patients, the Minimally-Invasive Brow Lift will address their concerns. This technique is used to lift the lateral portion of the eyebrow (up toward the temples). The procedure can be performed in office and no IV sedation is required. When combined with an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty), this technique is effective in preserving or restoring facial harmony.
What is a Full Brow Lift?
This surgery is more comprehensive. It is designed to address the entire forehead: eyebrow position, forehead wrinkles, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose, and frown lines. Light IV sedation (twilight sleep) is required for this procedure. In this procedure, the whole forehead is mobilized. The muscles that produce the deep vertical wrinkles in the area between the eyebrows (“the angry 11’s”) are partially removed. The result is a dramatic improvement in appearance, providing a freshened, revitalized, natural look.
