Can a Brow Lift Smooth Out Forehead Wrinkles?

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


When you look in the mirror, does it seem like the only thing you can see is a wrinkled, heavy forehead or angry-looking eyes? If so, a descending brow may be to blame. This common symptom of aging can make patients appear worn-out, tired, and even upset or unapproachable – but there is a solution. At VIP Plastic Surgery, premier Las Vegas, NV board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi helps patients turn back the clock or simply correct natural forehead concerns with brow lift surgery. Take a closer look below at how brow lift surgery can smooth out forehead wrinkles, open up the eyes, and give you a younger, fresher, more vibrant appearance overall.

How can I get rid of forehead lines?

For mild to moderate expression lines – also known as dynamic lines and wrinkles – injectable wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX® can be a suitable solution. These injections will temporarily relax the muscles and reduce the visibility of dynamic forehead lines. For men and women with deeper-set static lines and folds on the forehead, a surgical approach may be necessary to restore a smoother look. In many of these cases, brow lift surgery is an appropriate course of action.

Would a brow lift help me?

Brow lift surgery isn’t just for older patients who are looking to reverse the signs of aging, though it is certainly popular among those men and women. Still, brow lift surgery can be used at almost any age to correct natural concerns as well as age-related changes. If you are frustrated by one or more of the following forehead and brow features, a brow lift may be right for you:

  • Heavy brow
  • Sagging or drooping brow
  • Wrinkled forehead
  • Forehead lines
  • Downturned eyes
  • “Sad” eyes
  • Heavy upper eyelids
  • Angry-looking brow

Even patients with a high forehead may benefit from a specialized brow reduction and lifting technique. In many cases, a combination of procedures can help to produce the most desirable outcome by addressing concerns regarding the brow and forehead in addition to the eyes and the area around the eyes. For example, brow lift surgery combined with blepharoplasty (eyelid) surgery can be used to correct hooded eyes by removing excess upper eyelid skin while also smoothing out a wrinkled brow.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Khorsandi will carefully evaluate your concerns and simulate the results of various procedure combinations using the advanced Vectra 3D imaging system before recommending a customized treatment plan that can best help you achieve your goals.

Are brow lift scars visible?

In almost all cases, the scars that result from brow lift surgery are not visible to others. Even patients themselves often have a hard time locating their brow lift scars, as Dr. Khorsandi utilizes specialized incision techniques and placement that will allow scars to be concealed within or beyond the hairline. For patients who are candidates for an endoscopic brow lift, the tiny scars are almost imperceptible. Regardless of the type of brow lift performed, Dr. Khorsandi takes great care to ensure your smooth, stunning new look – and not your scars – will take center stage.
