Many people struggle with visible signs of aging like forehead lines, sagging skin, and hooded eyes, making them look older than they feel. But you aren’t stuck with these issues forever! With a brow lift and Dr. Andrews’ years of experience, you can turn back the clock. With this simple procedure, you can achieve the youthful look you’ve been dreaming of and feel more confident when you step out into the world each day.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a cosmetic procedure that raises the tissues and skin around the brows to improve the appearance of the forehead, brow, and area around the eyes.
The procedure can:
- Reduce the appearance of horizontal wrinkles across the forehead
- Smooth out the vertical lines between the eyes
- Raises sagging brows that may cause hooding of the upper eyelids
- Makes the eyebrows look more alert
You may be a good candidate for a brow lift if you meet the following qualifications:
- Are physically healthy
- Have realistic expectations
- Are struggling with fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead and around the eyes and/or sagging skin or hooding of the upper eyelids

One of the hardest parts of getting cosmetic surgery is knowing what you’ll look like after the procedure is done. Dr. Andrews can describe the procedure and the results perfectly, but being unable to see it can make some patients apprehensive. With the Crisalix 3D Imaging software, you can actually see a visualization of your “after” pictures.
At Dr. Andrews Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer the Crisalix 3D imaging technology. This game-changing tool allows you to see your “after” before you ever schedule your procedure.Learn More
At the start of a brow lift, anesthesia will be administered to ensure you’re comfortable throughout the procedure. Once that sets in, Dr. Andrews will make small incisions to start the procedure. The incisions are made along the hairline so that an endoscope with a camera on the end can be inserted under the skin. This allows Dr. Andrews to see what’s going on as he adjusts the tissues and muscles and corrects any wrinkles or sagging skin.
Once he’s finished, Dr. Andrews will close the incisions using sutures and skin adhesives.
As you recover, your head may be loosely wrapped with a bandage to minimize swelling and bruising. Dr. Andrews will provide specific instructions on how to properly care for your incisions, what medication to take, and when to schedule a follow-up appointment. You will be able to go home the same day, but you will need a friend or family member to drive you home.
Once at home, you’ll want to keep your head elevated and avoid any strenuous activities. You’ll also want to avoid putting ice or heat on the treatment area.
You will be able to remove your bandages in one to three days. If dissolvable stitches are used, you don’t need to worry about getting them removed, but if they aren’t dissolvable, we usually remove them seven to ten days after the procedure.
You will likely see some results immediately, but the full results will become visible once the swelling diminishes completely.
Are you tired of looking older than you feel? Are you struggling with forehead lines and sagging skin that’s hooding your upper eyelids? A brow lift may be the perfect treatment option for you. It can make you look more awake, well-rested, and years younger.
