What Is a Brow Lift?What Is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift is a surgical procedure to correct drooping eyebrows. It is often combined with eyelid surgery to eliminate the problem of sagging lids. Rejuvenation of the upper face may be the first step or part of a larger plan to reverse the signs of aging. Many patients complain that their eyes appear smaller or deep-set, making them look sad and tired, even though they do not feel this way.

The drooping of the outer end of the eyebrows is often the first sign of aging. This droop tends to cause the upper eyelids to bulge and be pushed down to lie almost on top of the eyelashes. An eyebrow lift or forehead lift can correct the underlying cause of this.

Who Are Ideal Candidates?

Brow Lift Procedure

Dr. Fedok selects the best procedure based on each patient’s anatomy and his extensive experience. For men with a receding hairline but a heavy brow, Dr. Fedok may perform what is known as a mid-brow lift. The skin may be excised directly above the drooping section of the brow or in a forehead crease just above the brow, hiding the scar in a natural crease. Over time, either on its own or utilizing several ointments or laser interventions, the wound becomes essentially invisible.

In patients with a stable and appropriate hairline, Dr. Fedok frequently performs brow lifts at the pretricheal level, which is right at the level of the hairline. By placing any incision there the resultant wound is usually hidden by the natural hairline. Another advantage of the pretricheal level of incision is that the hairline can remain stable and not be changed.

Alternatively, adjustments can raise or lower the hairline, with these techniques typically preferred for most patients. Dr. Fedok also has extensive experience in performing various procedures like coronal forehead lifts, endoscopic forehead lifts, scalp expansion, and others for patients with different anatomical needs.

Remember, an eyebrow lift alone will not address excess skin on the upper or lower eyelids or the bags caused by fat herniation at the inner corners. A brow lift is often combined with other surgeries to address these issues. It is typically best to position the brow in a more youthful location in conjunction with a facelift’s temporal or forehead portion, even though it can be a standalone procedure in many cases.



After a brow lift surgery, a period of downtime is required for healing. Patients may experience bruising, swelling and discomfort. The final results will appear gradually over time, leaving you with a more youthful appearance. Trust Dr. Fedok’s expertise for a smooth and successful recovery.
