What is a Brow Lift?
Brow lift surgery, also known as a browplasty or forehead lift, is a popular aesthetic procedure that helps rejuvenate the upper part of your face. Sometimes, a droopy brow can create an angry or tired appearance. To improve the appearance of your complexion, browplasty surgically removes excess skin and raises the eyebrows. At Tulsa Surgical Arts in Tulsa, OK, Dr. Angelo Cuzalina performs brow lift surgery to create a younger-looking appearance. Frequently, he combines wrinkle fillers and relaxers with browplasty, which produces a smoother and softer appearance.

Is A Forehead Lift For You?
As we grow older, our skin starts to lose essential nutrients, which may cause certain parts of the face to sag. Unfortunately, this tends to happen in the upper face and affects both men and women. This procedure can help patients who:
- Appear tired or angry
- See frown lines between the brows
- Feel bothered by a sagging brow
- Experience deep creases on the sides of your nose
If you experience these issues, brow lift surgery at Tulsa Surgical Arts can help you attain your desired cosmetic goals.
At the beginning of your appointment, Dr. Cuzalina will administer anesthesia to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the treatment. Depending on the complexity of your procedure, we may use general anesthesia or IV sedation. To determine the best incision type, Dr. Cuzalina will consider several factors, such as if the forehead is affected and the position of your hairline. Some of the incision types may include:
- Traditional Incision
Also known as the open lift incision, this places the surgical incision behind the hairline at the top of the head. This incision not only hides scarring, but it provides a certain amount of lift control throughout the surgery. A traditional incision works well for those who experience frown lines and a sagging brow. A traditional incision is a good technique for patients who have the potential for a receding hairline.
- Trichophytic Incision
The trichophytic incision is made directly along the patient's hairline. A trichophytic incision permits a more dramatic lift in the brow for women and men who have a strong hairline with little risk for recession.
- Lateral Brow Lift
Also known as a temporal brow lift, the lateral technique places the incision in the hairline slightly above the temples. This method allows Dr. Cuzalina to lift the outer sections, which can reduce sagging that happens near the outer brow. A temporal brow lift also treats Crow’s feet.
- Endoscopic Forehead Lift
An endoscopic forehead lift is a more modern technique. This method places several tiny incisions beyond the hairline and inserts a tool known as an endoscope. Next, the endoscope is pushed down to the eyebrows, and the attached tools are released. Using the camera of the endoscope, the brow tissue is suspended using stitches, which helps lift the brow in a better position.
What to Expect
The recovery period varies for each person, and the incision type determines the level of discomfort. More invasive methods may cause uncomfortable symptoms for a longer period. No matter the type of method, you will experience some bruising and swelling in the upper face, near the brows, and around the eyes. To help reduce discomfort, we recommend using cold compresses. Additionally, for the first couple of nights, patients should sleep upright. You will also need to avoid any activities or movements that place pressure on the face. The typical recovery period for a brow lift is about 2 – 3 weeks, and usually, patients can see their results right away. With fewer fine lines and sagging in the upper part of the face, your complexion will appear softer and more alert.
