Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile at Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV, understands that the forehead and eyebrow region often shows noticeable signs of early aging. Loosening of the forehead skin and muscles can cause deepening forehead wrinkles, drooping eyebrows, and even worsened eyelid hooding. A well-performed forehead lift, browplasty, or brow lift can address these issues to create a natural and youthful appearance.
During a brow lift, the forehead skin is lifted and tightened. This process repositions and raises the eyebrows to soften frown lines for a smoother appearance. It also significantly diminishes the horizontal lines and furrows that can make patients appear angry, sad, tired, or aged.
The result is a more youthful, awake, and refreshed profile. A brow lift may be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures, such as a facelift, or eyelid surgery. Brow lift surgery is individualized for each patient and Dr. Stile will recommend a specific technique that meets your needs for optimal results.
Dr. Stile also performs forehead reduction or hairline lowering procedures for patients that feel their forehead is too broad or prominent and contribute to a prematurely aged look.
Most brow lift surgeries are performed with the patient under general anesthesia as outpatient surgery at our accredited surgical center – Premium Surgical Services Center. For brow surgery, small incisions are usually placed in low visibility areas, such as behind the hairline.
The most common brow lift techniques are the open brow lift, limited incision brow lift, and endoscopic brow lift, which will be chosen based on the patient’s goals and their individual features.
Once the incisions are made, the surgeon will remove any excess skin, then smooth and re-position the muscles and soft tissue to smooth wrinkles and lines while elevating the eyebrows to an appropriate level.

While visible improvements can be seen immediately, the final results of the brow lift are fully appreciated in about 6-8 weeks after surgery. Patients will no longer have a tired, angry look and enjoy a youthful, refreshed appearance.
Most patients take 1–3 weeks to recover after a brow lift, but they are generally able to drive and return to light work in 2 weeks. For the first days after the surgery, patients should expect some temporary bruising, discomfort, tightness, and numbness.
Dr. Stile will talk to each patient about what they can expect in addition to what they need to do during their recovery. He will also provide tips for an easier recovery. Patients will need to return for a follow-up appointment the next day for a wound check and dressing change and again in a week to have their sutures removed.
