Endoscopic Browlift / Forehead Lift

Jefferson K. Kilpatrick, MD | Russell B. Stokes, MD | Hannah Parbst, Esthetician

You may feel perfectly rested and content only to have people tell you that you look tired or worried. This can be the result of deep furrows or sagging eyebrows, which not only produces a look that does not fit how you feel, but also makes you look tired, old, sad, or angry.

Brow lifts can revitalize drooping or lined foreheads, helping you to look less angry, sad or tired. Using either traditional or minimally invasive (endoscopic) methods, the muscles above the eyes are altered to smooth lines and raise the eyebrows for a more youthful appearance.

The procedure is often combined with other operations such as blepharoplasty and facelifts to improve the look of the eyes and other areas of the face.


A brow  lift may be done using the traditional technique, with an incision across the top of the head just behind the hairline, or with the use of an endoscope, which requires 3 to 5 short incisions.  The endoscope technique is most often done on people over 40.

The procedure usually last 1-2 hours with either local with sedation or general anesthesia. ​


Back to work: 7 to 10 days, usually sooner for an endoscopic brow lift.  More strenuous activity: Several weeks. Full recovery from bruising: 2 to 3 weeks.  Limit sun exposure for several months.

Minimally Invasive Browlift

As we get older, the brow and forehead are often those areas that show the first signs of aging. Due to the effects of sun and the pull of gravity, the skin begins to sag, resulting in frown lines, wrinkles across the forehead, and increased heaviness of the eyebrows and upper eyelids. These changes contribute to a tired, angry or sad expression that may not reflect the way you feel.

A Minimally Invasive Brow Lift is very effective at elevating sagging eyebrows while eliminating many of the wrinkles of the brow and forehead. The scars are all hidden in the hairline, and the recovery time is usually quite short.
