A brow lift, also commonly called a forehead lift, rejuvenates the face above the eyes to restore a more refreshed appearance that better reflects a patient’s natural vibrance. By removing excess sagging, skin on the forehead and repositioning the underlying muscles and tissues, a brow lift can correct a heavy, sagging brow, eliminate deep furrows, and restore a smoother, more youthful contour to the upper one-third of the face.
The problem with an aging forehead is the effect it has on our facial expressions—a sagging, heavily furrowed brow can cause us to look constantly tired, worried or even angry. Some of us are also genetically inclined to have a heavier, thicker brow, making us look as though we are wearing a frown even when we are feeling our best. A brow lift directly addresses these issues, helping patients enjoy a more naturally refreshed appearance as well as other positive changes. You may wish to consider a brow lift if: • Sagging or low eyebrow position creates a tired, sad or grumpy appearance • You have deep horizontal creases across the forehead • You have frown lines or furrows between the eyebrows or across the top of your nose • You have excess skin or fatty tissue hanging over your eyes
Cosmetic surgeons use different techniques for brow lift surgery; which is best for any given patient depends on a patient’s goals, unique anatomy, and the extent of corrections needed to achieve the desired results. Dr. Maningas will listen to your concerns and talk with you during your one-on-one consultation in Joplin, MO about which technique will be the right one for you.

Not if you only do a brow lift. If a brow lift is done with other facial cosmetic procedures, a compression garment may need to be worn during recovery for best results.
If a full brow lift is preformed, the incision is a longer one, but is hidden in the hair line. If a direct brow lift is the direction you want to go, a smaller incision is made right along the top of the brow. Over time scars will fade in either location.
The improvements made with brow lift surgery will last for many years to come. However, nothing can stop the normal aging process, and eventually your forehead tissues will begin to settle with time and gravity. You can help keep your results looking their best by living a healthy lifestyle. Wear sunscreen daily, eat a diet rich in whole foods and vitamins, and don’t smoke. This will help keep your body healthy and skin looking its best.
