Brow Lift Surgery in Scottsdale
A brow lift in Scottsdale, also known as a forehead lift, is a popular surgical procedure to enhance the appearance of the brow and forehead. If your sagging or low eyebrows are making you appear tired or prematurely aged, then a brow lift is an option to consider.
Horizontal wrinkle lines in the forehead, loose skin, and drooping eyebrows can all be reversed with a brow lift, giving you a rejuvenated and youthful appearance.
What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift, or forehead lift surgery, is a surgical procedure to raise the level of the eyebrows, remove excess skin in the forehead, and soften deep lines and wrinkles. Sometimes a brow lift may be recommended in conjunction with upper eyelid surgery or in combination with a facelift procedure.
The brow lift is known for its high recorded rates of patient satisfaction. A forehead lift leaves patients looking younger and more energetic; is a relatively simple procedure; and requires only a relatively minor period of post-operative recovery.

A coronal brow lift is a surgical approach utilizing an ear to ear incision that passes through the hair. This technique conceals any scarring underneath the hair, and provides the surgeon enhanced visibility of the forehead during the procedure.
