A brow lift may be an ideal procedure to help address signs of aging that are focused primarily on the forehead. Time, weight changes, sun damage, and various external factors can affect the appearance of our skin and speed up the aging process. Sagging, loose skin, wrinkles, and folds are common side effects that affect both women and men at varying ages.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift or browplasty, is a facial plastic surgery procedure that targets the forehead to treat signs of aging and correct skin laxity in the area. Much like the more traditional facelift, this procedure allows a plastic surgeon to pull the skin taut and reduce the appearance of common aesthetic concerns like wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.
This can often affect your eyebrows and cause trouble seeing due to drooping skin around the brow and eyes. A brow lift allows patients to achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance for years to come, enhancing their facial profile and brightening their entire visage.
Skincare, makeup, and even non-surgical cosmetic enhancements like facial fillers can all offer temporary enhancement, but generally require constant maintenance. As this area continues to sag or loses firmness, it can impact the other areas, leading to sagging in the mid-face section or around the eye. It is not uncommon for patients to combine this treatment with other facial plastic surgery to help achieve a more balanced result.
A brow lift is a facial enhancement procedure popular among men and women in Atlanta who want to address certain signs of aging, skin laxity, and sagging brows.
A brow or forehead lift is a facial cosmetic surgery procedure, so it is important for patients to be mentally and physically able to undergo surgery. Ideal candidates are in good general health, have a realistic understanding of the surgery and potential results, drink alcohol minimally, and are non-smokers.
The results of each patient will vary, but it is often recommended for patients who want to address drooping above their eyes, such as around the eyebrows or forehead.
Patients who have considered a facelift, but don’t need to address such an extensive area, may consider a more focused procedure like a brow lift or blepharoplasty. A consultation with Dr. Jones will help you to determine which procedure is appropriate for you.
Dr. Jones will address each brow lift surgery individually, which means his approach may vary slightly depending on your needs. To help reduce any visible scarring, incisions will be made as close to the hairline as possible and within the natural curves of the skin.
To achieve a tighter, smoother appearance in the face, during the surgery, the forehead skin is lifted and muscle tissue is tightened. The incisions are then closed using medical-grade sutures, skin adhesive, or special clips. During your consultation, Dr. Jones will discuss exactly what you can expect during the procedure, as well as your results and recovery.
To determine if a facial enhancement surgery, like a brow lift, eyelid surgery, or facelift is right for you, you must first schedule a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon. DrNipAndTuck, Dr. Nicholas Jones offers patients an in-depth consultation at our facility to help determine the best approach for you.
To better prepare our patients for an upcoming surgery, we advise them to plan ahead for any time they may need to take away from work or responsibilities to allow them a smooth recovery. Patients should also plan to quit smoking if they currently do, reduce alcohol intake, and discontinue certain medications. You can discuss these details with Dr. Jones during your consultation.
Just about everyone will develop wrinkles at some point in their life. But that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. With facial enhancement surgery, you can turn back the clock on your appearance and achieve brighter, beautiful skin free of wrinkles, loose skin, or drooping muscles.

Unfortunately, there is no real way to stop or slow the aging process. It’s a natural part of life that affects us, although it is often different for everyone.
Some adults may discover it on their hands, others may notice loose skin develop around the midsection. For most patients, however, wrinkling and sagging in the face is often the most problematic. As this is the area that is most exposed to the sun and elements, it often starts to show signs first, often as early as your 20s or 30s.
Some patients may notice that their skin starts to sag dramatically, causing drooping in the forehead, around the eyebrows, or above the eyelids. In these cases, a brow lift may be a beneficial approach to help address these signs of aging. Other benefits include:
