What Is a Brow Lift?

Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that raises the skin and soft tissue of the forehead and brow to rejuvenate the appearance of the upper face.

What to Expect with a Brow Lift?

A brow lift in Portland is performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Depending on your unique needs, Dr. Kim will use one of two possible brow lift surgical techniques:

Endoscopic Brow Lift

This technique uses small incisions within the hair-bearing scalp. An endoscope along with special instruments are placed through the incisions. The muscles and tissue beneath the skin are adjusted to correct furrows in the forehead and visible creases. This is followed by fixation of the brow in an elevated position.

Hairline Brow Lift

A hairline or “pretrichial” brow lift is often performed on individuals with a high or receding hairline. The surgeon removes an appropriate amount of tissue and skin from the forehead. Fixation of the brow is performed and the wound is meticulously closed to lie along the hairline for maximum camouflage.

Why is Brow Lift Surgery Performed?

The brows tend to descend due to aging. There is a shorter distance between the eyebrows and eyelashes when the skin and soft tissues begin to lose elasticity. Dr. Michael Kim's Portland brow lift is performed to raise the eyebrows and restore a more youthful, refreshed appearance to the area. It can also be performed in combination with other cosmetic facial procedures, such as a facelift or an eye lift.

How Soon Will I See Results?

Your results will appear within a few weeks after the procedure when swelling and bruising subside. You can expect to see smoother skin on your forehead, lifted brows, and a more youthful, rested look.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

I hope this update finds all of you safe and healthy. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we are limiting appointments to those that are necessary only (lacerations or emergencies that do not require a visit to the ER, immediate post-operative patients, etc.). We are still answering calls and email inquiries, so feel free to reach out with any questions or urgent requests. We are also offering virtual consultations via FaceTime or Skype to get your process started until we can see you preoperatively. Although these are difficult decisions, we feel this is important for the good of our community, our patients and their families. If you are currently scheduled to come into the office in the next few weeks, our Patient Care Specialist will be in touch with you regarding the status of your appointment or surgery.

This is an incredibly fluid and evolving situation, but we will return to our normal operations when it is safe to do so. We really appreciate your patience. Just remember that we are all in this together and that we will get through this.

Dr. Kim
