A brow lift can reduce the effects of a drooping forehead by elevating the brow and relaxing furrowed brow muscles. Brow lifts improve frown lines and allow the brow to be elevated to a more youthful position. The muscles that cause forehead wrinkles can also be weakened to provide a smoother, more youthful appearance. This procedure is performed with a general anesthetic on an outpatient basis. Recovery time and risks vary depending on the type of procedure used. Your surgeon will explain the benefits and risks in detail during your consultation.
