Brow lift (forehead lift)

Sagging brows and forehead skin can be repositioned with a forehead lift surgery. The procedure is designed to restore youthful looks through elimination of forehead lines.

A responsible surgeon’s first objective would be to help the patient make an informed decision by educating them in detail about different aspects of brow lift. The patients should compare the costs while considering the quality and standard of care provided at a surgical practice.

Factors Affecting the Sticker Price

The price tag can differ from one practice to another in case of forehead lift cosmetic surgery procedure. The costs may sometimes also vary from one patient to another at the same practice. Some of the key factors influencing the overall dollar figure include:

Location of the practice

Location is a vital factor that has its own impact on the overall cost of the surgery. If the practice is based in a prime urban center or in a downtown metropolitan area, chances are that the costs would be marginally higher side than that of another practice located in a smaller town or on the outskirts of the city. Real estate costs and other overheads could be different in such diverse locations.

Surgeon’s Fee

Factors such as a surgeon’s professional standing in the field, their overall experience and their skills may often dictate their fee. Patients can expect a board certified plastic surgeon to invest in high quality standards, best practices, use of advanced surgical techniques, adhering to latest safety protocols and continued upgrading of skills. According to the ASPS, the surgeon’s fee should only be a secondary selection criterion when making a decision about a surgeon for a plastic surgery procedure.

Surgical Venue and Anesthesia Expenses

Local anesthesia with IV sedation or general anesthesia may be used to perform brow lift surgery. The fee of a nurse anesthetist or an anesthesiologist, who may charge for the surgery by the hour, would vary depending on their qualification.

The patient will usually have two options for surgical venue: an accredited surgery center or a hospital. A private surgical suite may also be used is some cases. The costs and the benefits would vary in each case.

Surgery Technique and Monetary Amount

The precise and innovative surgeon may recommend either a traditional surgery technique or an endoscopic technique to perform a brow lift procedure. More precise outcomes may be expected from the more advanced and less invasive endoscopic brow lift procedure. The type of the technique chosen will affect the cost of the surgery.

In certain cases, a brow lift may be combined with a facelift or an eyelid lift surgery. In such instances, the combined procedure would be a more cost-effective option overall, but the absolute cost of the combined surgery would be higher.

Patients should consider their insurance and financing options carefully. Insurance coverage may be possible in a few cases where the sagging brows are obstructing vision.

Good Candidates

A majority of people seeking brow lift cosmetic surgery are over the age of 40 years. The brow lines and eyelids usually start to sag and noticeable wrinkle being to appear along the forehead at this age.

Initially, brow lift candidates often assume that they need eyelid lift surgery to improve sagging above the eyes. But a consultation with the plastic surgeon may help them realize that a brow lift could address such issues in a more effective manner. 

People with the below mentioned concerns typically make ideal candidates for brow lift surgery:

  • Sagging brows
  • Tired or angry appearance
  • Horizontal lines across the forehead
  • Deep furrows between the brows
  • Heavy upper lids

 

Having Forehead Lines 

Over time, wrinkles and lines on the forehead may occur due to repetitive expressions. A person may feel self-conscious because of the presence of these obvious signs of aging. 

These deep lines can be reduced with Botox or soft tissue fillers only for a temporary duration. In case the candidate wants a long-term solution for forehead lines and the lines that develop across the nose bridge, they may choose brow lift surgery.

 

Tired and Sad Appearance
