What is a Brow Lift?
Brow lift surgery or a forehead lift is a popular cosmetic procedure that lifts the brow, which refreshes the upper part of the face. A sagging brow can create a tired or angry appearance. To help rejuvenate your complexion, a forehead lift removes excess skin from the forehead and lifts the eyebrows. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL, Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang is a skilled plastic surgeon who has completed many brow lift surgeries for men and women. Additionally, Dr. Mang often combines injectables with a forehead lift for enhanced results. This enhances your results and produces a softer and smoother appearance.

Is A Brow Lift For You?
As we start to age, skin laxity can increase and cause parts of the face to sag. Often, this symptom happens in the upper part of the face. When looking in a mirror, do you appear angry or tired, see frown lines in between the brows, or feel bothered by your sagging brow? If so, you might be a good candidate for a brow lift. A forehead lift can also reduce forehead lines and deep wrinkles near the nose. To combat these issues, Dr. Mang will assess your complexion, listen to your cosmetic goals, and create a tailored treatment plan.
We start your procedure by administering anesthesia. Depending on the complexity of your surgery, Dr. Mang may use IV sedation or general anesthesia. We select your incision technique based on the severity of skin sag, forehead wrinkles or lines, and the hairline position. The surgical techniques include a traditional incision, trichophytic incision, the lateral brow lift, and the endoscopic forehead lift. Each incision type offers a variety of benefits; however, some are more invasive than others. At your consultation, Dr. Mang will discuss each forehead lift technique in detail.
What to Expect
The recovery period after brow lift surgery can vary. Generally, the most swelling and discomfort occur with open techniques versus the temporal or endoscopic techniques. Overall, you will experience some slight bruising and swelling around the brows and possibly near the eyes. Cold compresses can help reduce these symptoms. For the first few nights, patients should sleep upright and avoid any movement or activities that place pressure on the face. We provide detailed aftercare instructions to help you care for your treatment area. The typical recovery period for a brow lift is about 2 – 3 weeks. Immediately after your procedure, you can usually see your results. Overall, your complexion should look refreshed and softer. You will also notice a decrease in sagging skin and fine lines in the upper face.
Brow Lift FAQ
How much does a brow lift cost?
It is better to focus on finding a skilled surgeon, like Dr. Mang, who can give you the best results rather than going with the lowest price. The cost of brow lift surgery will vary based on the technique used, anesthesia, facility fees, and other factors. When your treatment plan is developed in your consultation, cost estimates can be discussed. Dr. Mang can also go over payment methods and where to find low-interest financing — so your surgery is more affordable.
Do I need a brow lift or facelift?
Whether you need a brow lift or full facelift will depend on where you have sagging skin as well as your goals. You should candidly discuss your wants with Dr. Mang, so he can help you choose what is best. Some patients come in wanting a facelift to discover they only need a brow lift and vice versa. With his experience and skill, Dr. Mang can confidently help you create your treatment plan to give you the results you want.
What about nonsurgical treatments?
You may consider one of the many nonsurgical treatments, including laser skin tightening and injectables (like BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM®), that can give mild improvements. However, a surgical brow lift is better if you want longer-lasting results and significant improvements. During your consultation, Dr. Mang can go over both your nonsurgical and surgical options to help you decide which is best for your needs.
What technique should I choose?
Dr. Mang will explain brow lift surgery techniques during your consultation to help you know the advantages of each. He will then help you select the technique that best meets your needs and goals. Some of the factors that may influence your technique choice are your hairline (taking into account both your current hairline and your risk of future recession), the degree of skin sagging, and the recovery time available.
Will my results look natural?
When you have a skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. Mang, your brow lift results will appear natural. He will develop your treatment plan for your needs and goals — so you look refreshed and younger, not frozen or tight. When performing your brow lift, Dr. Mang will concentrate on removing excess skin. The remaining skin and tissue will be smoothed — so your results don't limit your facial expressions or lift your eyebrows too high.
Rejuvenate Your Appearance
By raising your sagging brow, you can rejuvenate your entire appearance and seem more youthful and refreshed. During your appointment at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL, Dr. Mang will create a detailed treatment plan and discuss the costs of the surgery. To ensure you select the best plastic surgeon for your needs, we offer financing and payment plans. This will help you select the best surgeon based on their skill and not just on cost. Dr. Mang strives to provide natural-looking results so you look and feel your best. Please call to schedule an appointment and receive additional information about brow lift surgery.
