A brow lift or ‘forehead lift’ is a cosmetic procedure that offers long-term results and can completely transform an upper facial region’s look. It’s an ideal surgical option for people seeking to remove deep brow creases, forehead lines, or drooping eyebrows.
Brow lifts are safe and effective treatments conducted by Dr. Farole at his Bala Cynwyd, PA practice. Dr. Farole is a board-certified surgeon with many years of cosmetic experience.

Brow Lift Procedure
There are two ways to carry out a brow lift procedure. The first involves making a large incision behind the hairline, while the second and more common option is endoscopically.
Before a patient has a brow lift, they will get asked whether they prefer general or local anesthetic. A brow lift takes up to two hours to complete, during which time Dr. Farole elevates the brow and adjusts underlying muscle and tissue.
Brow Lift Recovery
Because of the surgical nature of brow lifts, you will experience swelling and bruising, and even numbness for several weeks after the procedure. Others show no visible effects after the surgery.
Most patients can typically go back to work between five and seven days after their brow lift. The full healing process can take up to six months; however, patients who had endoscopic brow lifts may experience shorter recovery times.
Some patients may initially experience visible scarring within the hairline after the procedure. But, such scarring will typically become hidden when the hairline grows back over the incision areas.

Benefits of a Brow Lift
A brow lift provides patients with a more youthful appearance, the results of which are almost instantly visible immediately after surgery. The full effects of a brow lift can be seen once all surgical swelling subsides.
Brow lifts are perfect for people that experience frown lines, eyebrows that droop, or forehead lines. They are a cost-effective alternative to full facelifts yet still enable patients to reverse the effects of the aging process.
Patients can elect to have a brow lift alongside other cosmetic procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery).
Am I a Candidate for a Brow Lift?
You might be a candidate for a brow lift if you’re seeking to reverse the signs of aging, sun damage, or genetics that cause drooping brows or forehead lines. Patients electing to have a brow lift should be in good physical health and have realistic expectations.
If you’re allergic to some medicines or have certain ongoing medical conditions, you might not be a good candidate for a brow lift. In those cases, Dr. Farole may offer you an alternative treatment such as a laser peel, a chemical peel, or dermal fillers.
