The Difference Between an Eyebrow Lift and a Forehead Lift

patient at the doctors office As we age, our skin loses collagen and elasticity. As a result, unattractive wrinkle lines can mar the forehead area. Frown lines appearing between the brows and across the upper brow area can make you appear angry, worried, or too severe or downbeat. Sagging forehead skin can make your eyebrows droop, resulting in hooded upper eyelids.

Drooping eyelids can add more years to your appearance, making you look tired and block your vision. If these signs of aging in the brow and forehead are bothersome because they make you look older than you really are, a lift procedure in these areas could be the solution you need.

What’s the better procedure for you: an eyebrow lift or a forehead lift?

While some may differentiate between a brow lift and a forehead lift, in fact, a brow lift and a forehead lift are two names for the same type of plastic surgery procedure.

What can an eyebrow/forehead lift do for you?

A brow lift/forehead lift is facial plastic surgery that corrects the brow line as well as smoothing out forehead features, creating a more youthful-looking appearance. A brow/forehead lift can vary in intensity, from the less invasive endoscopic brow lift to a coronal full forehead lift. Which lift is best for you will depend on your individual needs and facial anatomy.

An eyebrow/forehead lift will:

  • Reduce wrinkle lines (worry lines) that appear across the forehead, the bridge of the nose (bunny lines), and between the eyes
  • Improve frown lines, which are the vertical creases that appear between the eyebrows (also known as the “11s”)
  • Lift sagging brows that cause hooded upper eyelids
  • Reposition the eyebrows in a higher, more youthful-looking location
