A brow lift reduces the appearance of wrinkles that can give your face an aged, concerned appearance.
Our foreheads easily show the signs of aging, which are visible in how our foreheads sag and droop and in the wrinkles that develop. Every time we lift an eyebrow or scrunch our brow in thought, we add to the lines and creases that develop and deepen over time. A brow lift, available at The Breazeale Clinic in Knoxville, reduces the appearance of wrinkles that can give your face an aged, concerned appearance.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, visibly reduces the horizontal furrows that add years to your face, and also serves to minimize the appearance of a variety of lines and wrinkles that develop above the eyes but below the hairline.
What Does a Brow Lift Involve?
In general, a brow lift will entail Dr. Breazeale adjusting muscle and tissue through incisions hidden by the hairline. He will discuss the necessity and benefits of multiple small incisions or a single large incision depending on the patient and the desired results.
The procedure reduces the appearance of:
- lines that run across the forehead
- frown lines, which can run vertically
- drooping brows

Since a person’s expression goes a long way toward how other people perceive attitude and receptiveness, a brow lift may also involve moving your eyebrows into a position that eliminates a permanent grouchy scowl and instead indicates attention, positivity, and youth.
Dr. Breazeale’s placement of the incisions will effectively hide the scars in your hairline, where they will not be noticed. The brow lift results, however, will be visible immediately, improving further as the initial swelling subsides. Patients typically enjoy the benefits of their surgery shortly after they return home, and many return to their daily activities in less than two weeks.
A brow lift pairs well with blepharoplasty (also known as an eyelid lift) and can be combined with a full facelift. Putting different surgeries and procedures together can create an overall effect of alertness and vitality. Dr. Breazeale and his staff will be happy to discuss all of your options with you.
Botox® cosmetic can offer a temporary “fix” when injected above the brow for those who want to try this more conservative approach to lifting.
