The Top 4 Benefits of a Brow Lift

Posted April 24, 2023 in Brow Lift


If you’ve been hearing a lot about the brow lift lately, it’s because it’s quickly becoming one of the most popular facial rejuvenation procedures on the market. If you’re curious about the brow lift or are wanting to learn more, the best thing to do is schedule a consultation with a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon such as Dr. David Gilpin. In the meantime, here are four of the biggest benefits of the brow lift and how you can maximize your results.

What is a Brow Lift?

The brow lift is a facial rejuvenation procedure that smooths and lifts the skin of the brow and upper face. One of the first areas that people tend to experience aging signs is in the brow, where they may begin to experience laxity, sagging, and wrinkles. The brow lift is a distinct procedure from the facelift, which what many people tend to think of when they consider facial plastic surgery. In short, the brow lift is a better option for patients who have sagging brows or deep forehead lines but minimal signs of aging in the rest of the face.

4 Benefits of the Brow Lift

There are many benefits to the brow lift, which is why it’s one of the most popular procedures performed by Dr. Gilpin at our Nashville, TN office. Here are just a few benefits to consider.

Minimal Incisions

Traditionally, the brow lift was performed with a long incision across the hairline that allowed access to the underlying tissues. Today, Dr. Gilpin exclusively performs the endoscopic brow lift which uses minimal entry points around the temple hairline that allow him to use small surgical tools to rejuvenate the brow. This means there’s very little risk of scarring and minimal downtime.

Reduced Sagging in the Brows and Eyelids

Many people experience sagging hoods on the upper eyelids and opt for upper eyelid surgery. However, the brow lift can also be a great way to lift the eyelids and open the eyes. Hooded eyes that are caused by sagging brows can be corrected with a brow lift, restoring a more rested and neutral expression to the upper face.

Restored Brow Arches

The eyebrows normally help frame and define the upper face. When your brow begins to sag with age, it can cause the eyebrows to appear flat and heavy. A brow lift can restore the eyebrows to a more upright and youthful position, giving them the shape they had when you were younger.

Reduced Forehead Lines

Forehead lines are one of the telltale signs of aging. Although Botox can be an incredibly effective way to smooth lines, you may reach a point where it no longer produces the results you want. In this case, the brow lift can lift and restore the underlying tissues that cause the sagging, lined appearance in the brow.

The Top Procedures to Combine With Your Brow Lift

Although the brow lift can achieve excellent results on its own, it’s also commonly paired with a variety of other facial plastic surgery procedures. The right add-on can depend on your cosmetic goals – if your focus is on your eyes and reducing sagging, blepharoplasty can help rejuvenate the upper and lower eyelids for more complete anti-aging results in the upper face. If you have signs of aging in the mid-face as well, a facelift may be the best option to combine with your brow lift – especially if you’re worried about your brow lift results not matching the rest of your face. Finally, laser resurfacing can be a great non-surgical way to further smooth fine lines and wrinkles in the brow and around the eyes. Dr. Gilpin and our team can help you put together a personalized treatment plan during your consultation.
