Brow Lift & Forehead Lift

A furrowed brow and horizontal forehead wrinkles can create the impression that you’re always upset or exhausted even when you feel rested and content. Dr. Keith Ladner, a double board-certified plastic surgeon, uses advanced minimally invasive techniques to perform brow lift surgery in Denver, CO. Also called a forehead lift, the procedure restores a youthful, refreshed appearance for both women and men.

Who Are Good Candidates for a Brow Lift?

If you’re often asked if something’s bothering you even when you feel fine, your appearance may be sending a misleading message. Women and men who believe forehead wrinkles and vertical “worry lines” between the eyes make them look exhausted, angry, or upset can benefit from brow lift surgery.

Good candidates for the procedure are usually concerned about:

  • Sagging brows creating a grumpy appearance
  • Deep horizontal creases across the forehead
  • Frown lines or furrows between the eyebrows or across the top of the nose
  • Excess skin or fatty tissue hanging over your eyes

In some cases, Dr. Ladner may recommend combining a brow lift with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as a facelift or neck lift, to address facial aging more comprehensively.

Dr. Keith Ladner's Credentials

How Is a Brow Lift Performed?

As a facial plastic surgery specialist, Dr. Ladner has extensive training in multiple brow lift techniques and can tailor the procedure to the shape of your forehead and the position of your hairline. A minimally invasive technique called an endoscopic brow lift involves making small, discreet incisions along the hairline. Dr. Ladner then inserts an endoscope—a small, thin camera—and repositions the tissue and muscle that create the furrowed appearance between the eyes before closing the incisions.

While an endoscopic brow lift is usually the preferred technique, Dr. Ladner may recommend another type of brow lift. The options include:

Coronal brow lift: A traditional brow lift involves making an incision in the hairline that extends from near one ear to the other ear. Dr. Ladner uses the access provided by this technique to elevate the underlying tissues from above.

Lateral brow lift: Dr. Ladner may recommend this procedure for patients who need a less extensive brow lift. Also called a temporal brow lift, the technique addresses the outer third of the eyebrows rather than the full brow area. This is often the area to initially sag and a lateral brow lift may be combined with upper eyelid surgery.

What to Expect During Recovery From a Brow Lift

The downtime following an endoscopic brow lift is minimal, with most patients returning to work or their other normal daily activities within a week of the operation. You may experience some headaches Dr. Ladner recommends managing with over-the-counter or prescription pain medications. Minimal swelling and bruising are normal. Patients return to the office within 10 days to have their sutures removed.
