As we age, our tissues begin to sag, including our eyebrows, creating a heavily furrowed forehead. As skin and soft tissues lose elasticity, the distance between the eyebrows and eyelashes also shortens. The lower position of the eyebrows can make you look tired, angry or sad. . This can be frustrating, especially if you feel your brows are portraying emotions that you are not feeling. A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift or forehead rejuvenation, is a cosmetic procedure to raise the brows. A brow lift improves the appearance of the forehead, the brow and the area around the eyes by raising the soft tissue and skin of the forehead and brow. You might choose to have a brow lift if you have a low, sagging brow or brow asymmetry to restore a refreshed, more pleasing appearance. Some individuals may also be genetically prone to have thicker and heavier brows. A brow lift is a great option to help boost your self-confidence. It can be done alone or with other facial procedures, such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or a facelift.

How much does a brow lift cost?
The cost of brow lifts varies and depends on multiple factors including type of brow lift performed, location of surgery, and other factors. When your treatment plan has been decided during your consultation with Dr. Walker, a team member will go over estimated costs with you. Although finances are important, you should focus on finding a skilled and caring surgeon you trust rather than on the cost associated with your procedure. Dr. Walker’s team will be happy to go over financing options with you as well.
Does insurance cover the cost of brow lift?
Brow lifts are considered a purely cosmetic procedure and insurance carriers do not typically participate in payment.
Can brow lifts be combined with other facial procedures?
Yes, in fact, most commonly a brow lift is not a stand-alone procedure but performed in conjunction with other facial procedures including facelifts, eyelid surgeries, skin resurfacing, or rhinoplasties.
Are there non-surgical alternatives to brow lift surgery?
There are many non-surgical treatment options for the eyebrows, most commonly BOTOX®, Dysport®, or other neuromodulator injections. A surgical brow lift is better if you desire long-lasting results and if your eyebrows have descended more than what injectables can treat. Some surgeons also offer thread lifts on the forehead as an alternative. During your consultation, Dr. Walker can go over your surgical and nonsurgical options so you can decide which is most suited for you.
Which brow lift technique is right for me?
During your consultation, Dr. Walker will not only thoroughly examine your entire face including your eyebrows, but also listen to your goals, possible concerns, and tolerability for downtime. Once all factors are taken into consideration, a treatment recommendation and treatment plan will be formulated with your input. He will go over the various surgical techniques in as much detail as is necessary to help you understand the advantages of each. Some of the factors that may influence your decision are your hairline position, scar concealment, the degree of eyebrow descent, depth of forehead creases, and how much time you can devote to recovery.
Will brow lift results look natural?
Although true for most plastic surgeries, less is more is particularly true in brow lift surgery to avoid an over-lifted eyebrow, as it may lead to a surprised look that may be quite unnatural. When you choose a skilled facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Walker, your surgical results should look natural and harmonious with the remainder of your face. Dr. Walker is a strong believer of natural-looking results. He will customize your treatment plan for your needs and goals so you look like a refreshed and younger version of yourself.
