What is A Brow Lift?
Wrinkles and frown lines often appear between the brows and in the forehead area as we age. A forehead lift, also known as a brow lift, is a surgical cosmetic procedure that softens deep wrinkles and corrects drooping brows. Dr. Chip Cole and the professionals at OCULUS Plastic Surgery can help you enjoy a younger and more refreshed appearance in Atlanta, GA!
When you have an endoscopic brow lift at our clinic, creases on the forehead and glabella (the area between the eyebrows) are reduced. Asymmetry of the brows can also be corrected at the time of surgery. Depending on your needs and cosmetic goals, we can perform a brow lift at the same time as other procedures for more dramatic results, such as eyelid surgery or laser skin resurfacing.

What to expect during a brow lift
OCULUS Plastic Surgery is proud to offer our popular endoscopic brow lift using the latest tools and techniques in the industry. Dr. Cole uses a small fiber-optic lens during surgery, which is attached to a camera and connected to a monitor screen. Half-inch incisions are made for the insertion of scalpels and retractors. We perform the procedure while viewing the monitor so outcomes are more consistent and precise. The brow position is slightly overcorrected at the time of surgery in order to account for some tissue relaxation that occurs during recovery. The end result is a relaxed appearance that preserves the distance between the brow and eyelashes, which means you can appear more rested and youthful in the most natural ways possible.
How long is recovery after a brow lift?
The initial recovery time for a brow lift procedure is 1 – 2 weeks. However, this timeline may vary based on your skin elasticity and the extent of your brow lift surgery. Each patient should continue to heal at his or her own pace. Swelling, bruising, and some discomfort are a normal part of healing and can be alleviated with medications and cool compresses. Dr. Cole can provide helpful post-operative instructions and guidelines at the time of your initial consultation.
Brow lift FAQs
Will I look fake after a brow lift?
A brow lift is designed so patients can appear more awake and alert. Our clinic works hard to make sure your results are subtle and natural. Of course, it's always best to work with an experienced surgeon like Dr. Cole for the best outcomes possible. We take into account factors like your unique facial anatomy and personal goals when creating your surgical plan.
Does a brow lift cause scarring?
OCULUS Plastic Surgery uses small incisions in concealed areas whenever possible during endoscopic brow lift surgery. This means patients don't have to worry about potential scarring ruining their results. Our team also provides aftercare tips and advice — so incisions heal well after the procedure.
Can I just use BOTOX®?
Not necessarily. Cosmetic injections like BOTOX may improve the appearance of fine lines but cannot lift sagging skin. Our team in Atlanta, GA, can perform an evaluation and see whether nonsurgical or surgical options are best for your aesthetic goals. If injections like BOTOX don't satisfy your needs, a brow lift may be your best bet.
