Brow Lift

An excessively "heavy" looking brow can convey a stern, unapproachable expression, making you appear older than you actually are. This can affect your overall facial aesthetics, potentially giving you a more serious or fatigued look. Reducing the heaviness of your brow can significantly soften your appearance, enhancing your natural features and helping you look more youthful and approachable.
Some individuals dislike how their brow makes their “resting face” look sad, exhausted, or angry. This is an aesthetic problem that can be greatly improved with a brow lift procedure performed by a skilled facial plastic surgeon.

Key benefits of
brow lift surgery

  • Elevates the brows into a youthful position to deliver a more refreshed, youthful appearance
  • Smooths horizontal forehead lines and the vertical lines between the brows
  • Improves the appearance of sagging folds between the brows and lids

What is a brow lift?

Due to the loss of skin elasticity, years of sun damage, and repeated muscle contractions, the brow gradually descends lower on the face, leading to the formation of horizontal creases. These changes can result in an aged, fatigued, and worried appearance. A brow lift, also known as a "forehead lift" or "browplasty," can effectively address these issues, providing a significantly more refreshed, youthful, and attractive look.

Dr. Ali’s surgical technique for a brow lift

Triple board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Ali has been using an endoscopic technique for his brow lift procedures since 2003. This technique involves making tiny incisions within the hairline to reposition the skin, underlying tissues, and muscles of the forehead. This method ensures that scarring is minimal and well-concealed. Additionally, the endoscopic brow lift allows Dr. Ali to restore a rejuvenated look to the face with the aid of a tiny fiber-optic tube attached to a camera.

After making one-eighth of an inch incisions at or within the hairline, the endoscope’s small video camera enables Dr. Ali to view the internal structures of the forehead. This eliminates the need for the long incisions commonly used in other brow lift methods. Dr. Ali then repositions the skin, underlying tissues, and muscles of the forehead to smooth away expression lines and gently elevate the brows, giving the face a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

An endoscopic brow lift is completed in 1 to 2 hours under general anesthesia. It is performed at Dr. Ali’s private certified StationL in Montreal, Canada, under the supervision of a board-certified anesthesiologist.

Can a brow lift be combined with another procedure to enhance results?
Although a brow lift alone can provide a dramatically more refreshed and youthful appearance, many patients choose to combine it with a facelift, neck lift, and/or eyelid surgery to achieve a natural and balanced youthful look. During your consultation with Dr. Ali, he will evaluate your facial characteristics and listen closely to your goals to provide you with the surgical and non-surgical recommendations that will give you the best outcome. Combining multiple procedures can also reduce the costs for anesthesia and facility time.


Patients are typically able to return to work 7 to 10 days after their brow lift procedure. Sutures are removed within 5 to 10 days, and exercise may be resumed in about four weeks. The endoscopic brow lift results in minimal bruising and swelling, with scars that are nearly undetectable. Some patients may also experience reduced sensation in the scalp, but feeling typically returns within the first few weeks.

If you live within 30 miles of our center, a specially trained plastic surgery nurse can visit your home to assist you with your recovery. She will monitor your progress, change any dressings, assist you with your medication, and provide Dr. Ali with updates on your condition.
