Forehead/Brow Lift

The most common candidates for forehead / brow lifts are people who have unnaturally, consistently “furrowed” brows. The most common cause is age. People with sagging brows appear much older than they actually are. If you have a sagging brow and would like to appear youthful and more energized, you are an ideal candidate for a brow lift.

The brow lift procedure can be performed with various incisions depending on the patient’s facial characteristics. The incisions will address the major areas of the face: the eyebrows, the "hooding" of the upper eyelid, and the forehead. 

The final effect is a smoother, more naturally raised forehead. The skin is more taut, and the sagging is diminished.

Recovery takes about ten days. For the first two days, you won’t be able to shower – but after that you can resume normal activities. There may be some minimal soreness. But, otherwise, brow lifts are very straight-forward, relatively painless procedure. 

The average cost of a Forehead/Brow Lift is from $3,000 to $5,500.  This includes Dr. Haupt’s Surgical Fee, all pre-op appointments, Utah Surgical Center fees (Operating Room), Anastasia Fees, Supplies, and all follow-up visits after surgery.   The patients are responsible for getting and paying for medications once they are given a prescription from Dr. Haupt.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a difference between a brow Lift and a Forehead Lift?

They are not the same.  A brow lift lifts the brows and the skin of the eyelids below as a result.  It is generally done either through a direct incision above the brow or through and upper lid incision. 

A mid-forehead lift is also used to raise the brows, but the incision is placed in the skin well above the brow hairs, hidden in the horizontal forehead creases. 

A Forehead lift lifts forehead skin as well as the brows and eyelids below.  Some call them a brow lift because this is the facial feature the patient wants lifted, but the forehead will be lifted as well.  


What are the risks involved with Forehead and Brow Lift Surgery?

Every type of surgery has risks. Risks include numbness to forehead, facial nerve weakness, loss of hair follicles near incision points and being asymmetric. These risks are the most common; however there is not a complete list of all possible risks for Forehead and Brow Lift surgery.
