A brow lift, or forehead lift, has several functions, including correcting the low position of the eyebrows, softening horizontal creases across the forehead, and correcting the worried or angry expression that can result from frown lines. While there is no age limit for the procedure, brow lifts are generally performed by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. John Williams, for men and women in the 40 – 60-year age range. Dr. Williams is highly skilled in the latest brow lifting techniques, such as the endoscopic brow lift. With 3 – 5 small incisions at the hair-bearing scalp, behind the hairline, a lift is then performed with specialized instruments and a small camera device. This allows for minimal downtime, well-hidden incisions, and limited complications.
"I could not be happier with Dr. Williams and his staff. From the first appointment he made me feel comfortable and provided so much information. I knew at the first appointment he is who I wanted to go with. I had my surgery Friday and already back to work Monday. His staff is beyond nice and caring I highly recommend!"- K.B. / Facebook / Mar 13, 2018

"It's been almost a year since my breast augmentation and I am extremely happy with the work Dr. Williams performed. Not only am I happy with the results, during the whole process (pre, during, and post surgery), Dr Williams and his staff were EXTREMELY supportive. They answered any and ALL questions and concerns I had. I was pretty nervous throughout my healing process but they reassured me everything I was experiencing was completely normal and made sure I was not experiencing any negative symptoms. I highly recommend Dr. Williams. He and his team are phenomenal!! :) :)"- A.B. / Google / Mar 09, 2018
"My experience with Dr. John Williams was the most amazing experience I've had. Out of all the Plastic Surgeons I have seen in the past, he by far was the best decision I ever made. The first time I seen him, there was no other choice to see another Plastic Surgeon, My decision was made right away. I have to say that him and his wonderful office staff made me feel so comfortable and at home from the moment I called the office just to set up a consultation to the last time I seen him. Nicole and Mckenna were so amazing! After about 9 years to finally decide to get implants, Dr. Williams changed my life forever. I absolutely recommend him to everyone and if you are still trying to decide then at least make an appointment to go and talk to him. I want to say a big Thank You to Dr. Williams for helping me become more self confident and that you changed my life."- J.S. / Yelp / Aug 21, 2017
The best candidates for those seeking brow lift surgery, include men and women who have:
- Sagging or low position of the eyebrows, creating a tired or sad appearance
- Deep horizontal creases across the forehead
- Frown lines or furrows across the top of the nose and between each eyebrow
- Non-smokers in overall good health
What to Expect
During the initial consultation, we will evaluate the overall health of the skin, which will include skin quality and looseness. He will also evaluate the folds and wrinkles of the forehead and hairline, as well as the position of the inner, middle and outer portions of the eyebrows and the upper eyelids. This evaluation will help him to determine if a brow lift is the best procedure, and eliminate if an eyelid lift is needed instead. During a brow lift, one of several possible surgical techniques will be used. Some common incision approaches include along the natural upper eyelid crease or the brow’s hairline. A slightly more invasive approach is a coronal incision, which runs from ear to ear underneath the patient’s hair. The endoscopic brow lift is most often used, which is the least invasive approach.
Brow Lift Recovery
Swelling and bruising are expected on the forehead and eyes after brow lift surgery, although this will vary between patients. This swelling subsides within the first 1-2 weeks. The forehead may have some decreased sensation that will improve over time. Most patients can resume modest activity in 7-10 days, with a complete recovery in about 3-4 weeks.
