What Can a Brow Lift Accomplish?

  • Minimize creases that develop across the forehead or high on the nasal bridge
  • Improve frown lines, or vertical lines between the eyebrows
  • Refresh a perpetually sad, angry, or tired appearance
  • Reposition a low or sagging brow

The Procedure: What to Expect

Dr. Moran performs brow lifts with an endoscopic approach. First, she creates a series of tiny incisions well-hidden within the hairline. She then inserts an endoscope with a tiny video device beneath the skin. Using the video as her guide, she separates the soft tissues and underlying muscle, trims away small portions of the corrugator muscles which are responsible for frown lines, and gently elevates the brow to a more youthful position with sutures.

Once your smooth and refreshed expression has been achieved, she will close the incisions and wrap a bandage around your forehead. Many of our Nashville patients require a brow lift in conjunction with another facial plastic procedure to ensure comprehensive results. In most cases, the additional surgery is a facelift or blepharoplasty.

Where will my brow lift be performed?

Dr. Moran performs brow lifts at a fully accredited surgery center in the Franklin, TN area.

What kind of anesthesia is required?

Your brow lift can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. This component of your surgery will be discussed during your private consultation at our Nashville area office.

What is the recovery like?

You can expect some discomfort, swelling, itchiness, and bruising during the initial healing period, though these effects aren’t usually severe and can be managed with medication. The majority of our patients recover well enough to return to work and most normal activities in about two to three weeks. During the planning stages of your procedure, Dr. Moran will provide personalized guidance to ensure a swift recovery from your brow lift.

Will I have visible scars?

Because Dr. Moran uses an endoscopic approach that requires very small incisions, there should be no visible scars. Any resulting marks will be hidden within your hairline and virtually imperceptible.
