Have you started to notice visible drooping on your upper facial region, especially your forehead and around your eyebrows?
Getting lots more sleep or increasing hydration may help a little, but that drooping is likely a symptom of the aging process. You see, as we get older, skin and muscle laxity begin to break down, resulting in noticeable drooping. This is especially relevant for the forehead and eyebrow areas, where skin is thin and therefore more prone to showing these signs of aging.
If you want to correct signs of forehead drooping, you may be a good candidate for a brow lift. This cosmetic surgery can adjust muscle drooping and remove excess skin, helping to erase years from your appearance.
But with those results come some trade-offs: the potential for visible scarring as a result of your brow lift.
Your brow lift may lead to visible scarring
Brow lift incisions are typically placed above the ears and run along the hairline, giving the plastic surgeon the ability to reach and correct drooping eyebrow muscles. While these incisions are placed within the hairline, they can be visible for the first few months, or until the hairline grows back over the incision scars.

Are there scarless alternatives to a brow lift?
If you’re nervous about visible brow lift scarring, there are non-surgical treatment alternatives that can minimize drooping without leaving behind scars. Some of these scarless alternatives include:
- Laser peels
- Chemical peels
- Dermal fillers
- Ultherapy treatments
- And more
If you have minor skin sagging around your forehead and eyebrows, a non-surgical option may be a better fit for you.
