Refresh your natural look with a Forehead Lift
The appearance of early signs of aging can take you by surprise. One day you’re looking youthful, fresh, and awake, and the next, you’re noticing forehead wrinkles, sagging or drooping that seems to have occurred overnight. Aging is a gradual process, but the forehead is one of the first areas of the face to start showing the signs. Changes in expression, a tired appearance, and lines and wrinkles in the brow can all occur and make you look older than you feel.
Fortunately, modern plastic surgery has made slowing down the aging process easier than ever. Patients who are feeling self-conscious about their brow area can undergo a browplasty at the Miami Center for Plastic Surgery to rejuvenate their forehead and boost their confidence. Double board-certified surgeon Dr. Gabriel Salloum uses forehead rejuvenation surgery to offer patients natural-looking results and a more youthful facial aesthetic.
What is Brow Lift?
A brow lift, also commonly referred to as browplasty or forehead rejuvenation, is a type of facial surgery designed to combat the early signs of aging, primarily in the forehead and brow region.
This procedure aims to reduce deep wrinkles, vertical frown lines, and other signs of aging on the forehead skin. It works by carefully removing excess skin and tightening the underlying muscles to offer a lifted more youthful appearance. Not only does a brow lift address the forehead area, but it also works wonders for droopy eyelids by lifting the brow, thus reducing hooding over the eyes. The operation is meticulously planned and executed to offer a rejuvenated and alert facial expression, making it an important option for those looking to combat aging.
Understanding the Risks of Browplasty
Like any surgical procedure, a brow lift comes with potential complications. While it is generally considered safe, especially when performed by a board-certified surgeon, patients should be aware of the risks involved. These could include issues with anesthesia, infection at the incision sites, and delayed healing. In some cases, patients might experience nerve damage, leading to changes in facial sensation or movement. Pain medications may be prescribed to manage postoperative discomfort, but these also come with their own set of risks, such as gastrointestinal issues or allergic reactions. Furthermore, it is essential to refrain from strenuous activities for a recommended period after the surgery, to aid in the healing process and minimize risks.
Best Candidates for Brow Lift Procedure
People who have started seeing signs of aging in the forehead and brow region, like wrinkles and lines, hooding over the eyes, changes in their resting facial expression, and drooping skin may be suitable candidates for a browplasty.
All potential patients should be healthy adults who have realistic expectations for the procedure. Brow rejuvenation surgery can give a person a more youthful appearance and well-rested look, but it will not stop the normal aging process completely and it may not eliminate all signs of aging. Looking at the before and after photos of real browplasty patients can help you set your expectations and understand what’s possible.
Candidates must be non-smokers or willing to quit well in advance of the surgery and for at least several weeks afterward. Smoking interferes with anesthesia and proper healing and poses a safety risk to plastic surgery patients. Dr. Salloum evaluates each patient individually for candidacy during a complimentary brow rejuvenation consultation at his Miami Beach office.
The Forehead Lift Consultation
During a forehead rejuvenation consultation with Dr. Gabriel Salloum at the Miami Center for Plastic Surgery, you will be able to discuss your cosmetic goals in a calm, spa-like environment. Complimentary valet service is provided, so that you can visit the office stress-free and learn more about the forehead lift procedure while getting to know the doctor.
Dr. Salloum will ask you about your aesthetic goals and expectations for plastic surgery. He will also evaluate your facial aging patterns and determine what is causing the sagging and drooping in your brow area. Then he will go over your health history with you to ensure that you have a healthy lifestyle for surgery. You should talk about any current and past medical conditions and any medications you may be taking.
After he has assessed your candidacy, Dr. Salloum will explore the forehead lift process and propose a healing course of action. At times, he may suggest alternate methods if he senses they are more fitting, such as eyelid lift surgery to tackle drooping in the upper eyelids. He may even recommend putting together the two procedures or supplementing an eyebrow lift with Botox treatments.
If your treatment plan includes a brow rejuvenation procedure, Dr. Salloum will discuss the surgical technique he recommends and go over with you the anesthesia options and risks associated with the procedure. To make the most of your time with the doctor, it’s a good idea to come to your consultation prepared with a list of any questions and concerns you may have.

Brow Lift Techniques
Dr. Salloum designs every forehead rejuvenation procedure to meet the patient’s specific needs. Depending on the individual patient’s aims, expectations, and age-driven facial anatomy, the surgeon may perform one of two different browplasty techniques.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
Endoscopic browplasty is the most common type of forehead lift in modern plastic surgery because it produces subtle results and requires smaller incisions than other techniques. During the procedure, the surgeon makes a number of small incisions, hiding them within the hairline.
An endoscope, or a small camera mounted on a flexible tube, provides visibility as the surgeon tightens the forehead structures and lifts the forehead tissues. This technique is associated with faster recovery time and natural-looking results. It is best for people with mild to moderate brow sagging.
Coronal Brow Lift
For more extensive aging in the forehead, a coronal browplasty may be used. In this approach, a long incision is made on the top of the head, spanning from ear to ear. Since it is made within the hair-bearing scalp, the scar is hidden once healing is complete.
After the incision is made during a coronal procedure, the surgeon will lift the tissues and adjust the muscles before tightening the skin. This type of lift is best suited to patients with more advanced signs of aging.
Brow Lifts at the Miami Center for Plastic Surgery
Dr. Salloum performs brow rejuvenation surgery as an outpatient procedure and may use either local anesthesia or general anesthesia. The anesthesia that will be used depends on the surgical technique employed and the individual patient. This decision will be made during the initial consultation.
After the administration of the anesthesia, Dr. Salloum makes the incisions. He will use either the endoscopic approach or the coronal lift to tighten the skin and muscles and lift the forehead. Dr. Salloum takes care to avoid lifting the brow too much, in order to create a natural-looking, refreshed appearance.
After he has addressed the sagging forehead structures, Dr. Salloum closes the incisions with sutures (typically the dissolvable type) and places dressings on the incisions. A friend or family member should drive the patient home soon after the procedure is complete.
Brow Lift Recovery: What to expect
Following your forehead rejuvenation procedure, it is essential to rest, which helps with the healing process. You can expect to experience some swelling and bruising around the brow area, but this should lessen over time. Your doctor may provide you with pain relief medication to help reduce any discomfort.
Your surgeon will provide instructions on how to care for yourself during brow lift recovery time. He will also explain which activities and habits to avoid in the first few weeks. Most patients are back at desk jobs and normal activities within 1-2 weeks and may resume moderate exercise in about 4 weeks. The patient should start a light physical activity like walking soon after surgery, to ensure proper circulation and healing.
