Preparing for Brow Lift Surgery

During the consultation, our team will perform an evaluation of your current health and go over your medical history. Our surgeons will ask about your reasons for wanting a brow lift and what your desired results are. Some things you will need to do prior to your brow lift are:

  • Stop smoking and drinking
  • Stop cessation of consuming anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen
  • Arrange for someone to drive you home following the surgery

Brow Lift Procedure

There are several options for brow lift surgery that involve the use of different techniques and approaches. Forehead lift procedures can last one to three hours.

The procedure will start by administering anesthesia. Once the patient is comfortable, targeted incisions will be created. For a coronal brow lift, a single long incision is made behind the hairline. For an endoscopic brow lift, three to five much shorter incisions are made.

Excess fat, skin, and muscle tissues may be altered, trimmed, or removed. After the necessary adjustments have been made, the incisions will be closed using medical stitches, clips, or surgical tape. The brow area will be bandaged to complete the forehead lift procedure.


Our surgeons will examine you and discuss which techniques are recommended to give you the best results. Tell them about your aesthetic goals. After they have evaluated your medical records, they will create a surgical plan based on your goals and anatomy.

Every detail of the procedure plan will be thoroughly discussed with you. Our surgeons will explain the preparation steps, the actual surgery, the recovery process, and the possible results. You will be given a quote for the cost of the brow lift procedure. Feel free to ask questions at this time.

Recovering from a Brow Lift

The length of your recovery will vary based on the type of brow lift performed. The Endoscopic brow lift offers a shorter recovery period. Some swelling and bruising can be expected but these issues should be mild and will subside quickly. Pain can typically be managed with over the counter medication. Our team will provide you with post-operative instructions to make your recovery as smooth as possible and a follow-up visit will be scheduled.

Physical activities will be limited, and exercise will not be allowed for the first couple of weeks. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled to ensure that healing is going as expected. The results of brow lift can be seen after full recovery is complete and all swelling has ameliorated.

Brow Lift Cost

The cost of your brow lift will be based on the type of brow lift performed, the extent of the work required to provide you with your ideal results, and other factors. During your consultation, our team can go over the expected cost of your brow lift in Louisville and go over the payment and financing options available to you.

Patient Testimonials

"I can honestly say that I am impressed"

“I have had Ultherapy treatment and I can honestly say that I am impressed. Each treatment brings an immediate tightening effect and then over the next few months you see your skin continue to improve. It is excellent at stimulating the deeper skin layers. The collagen in my face gets a major boost – and so does my confidence level! This is a treatment that actually produces real and noticeable results. I now have a maintenance treatment on a yearly basis. The treatment is completely tolerable with no downtime. In my opinion, there are not too many treatments available that can give you impressive results and no time out for healing, you’re good to go. You should approach the treatment with realistic expectations and afterwards be pleasantly surprised. It is not a miracle worker, but it just might be the next closest thing. My experience has been completely positive and I love to get a big bang for my buck. Ultherapy is an amazing treatment and a very good investment. Aging is inevitable, but who says you can’t do it gracefully and at a slower rate. I will also say that it is incredibly important to have it performed by a trusted provider who is well trained with this procedure. Abby has both the credentials as well as the experience with this treatment and I trust her without reservation. If you are considering Ultherapy, make an appointment with Abby today.”
