Can a Brow Lift Help Reduce Frown Lines?

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


With age, many people begin to notice their brow descending and lines, wrinkles, and creases appearing on the forehead and between the browns — often referred to as frown lines. If you're considering your options for smoothing out frown lines with a long-lasting outcome, brow lift surgery might be a solution worth exploring. At VIP Plastic Surgery, leading Las Vegas, NV, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi performs a range of brow lift procedures — including the traditional brow lift, endoscopic brow lift, and others — to help meet the unique needs of his patients. Scroll on to discover how a brow lift can address frown lines and restore a more youthful, pleasing facial appearance overall.

What are frown lines?

Frown lines, also known as glabellar lines or 11 lines, are the wrinkles that form between the eyebrows. They can become more prominent over time due to repeated facial expressions, sun exposure, and the natural aging process. These lines can contribute to an aged, overly stern, or angry appearance.

Which facial surgery can help with frown lines?

A brow lift, sometimes called a forehead lift, is a facial surgery designed to address various concerns related to the forehead and brow area. It can effectively reduce the appearance of frown lines by repositioning the brow and smoothing out the forehead skin. By lifting and tightening the brow, a brow lift can create a more youthful and rejuvenated look, reducing the prominence of frown lines.

Who needs a brow lift?

A brow lift may be suitable for patients who:

  • Have noticeable frown lines or forehead wrinkles
  • Experience sagging or drooping eyebrows
  • Have a naturally heavy brow
  • Have developed hooded eyes due to a descending brow
  • Desire a more youthful and refreshed facial appearance

Will I still have forehead wrinkles after a brow lift?

While a brow lift can significantly reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles and frown lines, it may not get rid of them. Some residual fine lines may still be present after brow lift surgery, and new lines may appear in the future as a result of progressive aging and other factors. However, the overall improvement in the brow and forehead area can create a dramatically smoother and more youthful appearance.

How long do brow lift results last?

The longevity of brow lift results can vary from person to person, but most patients can expect their results to last for many years — up to a decade or longer in some cases. Factors such as individual aging, genetics, and sun exposure can impact brow lift results over time. To maintain the benefits of a brow lift, patients are encouraged to follow a good skin care regimen, protect their skin from sun damage, and consider nonsurgical treatments or “touch-up” procedures as needed.
