Introduction to Brow Lift

Creating Facial Balance & Harmony

Did you know your brow is a central focal point to the symmetry of your face? It draws attention to the eyes and serves as the conductor of the symphony of your facial expressions. Laughing, crying, or even sleeping a certain way has your forehead constantly moving: wrinkling, stretching, expanding, and contracting. Often as we age or due to genetics, we may experience low, sagging, or uneven brows. It’s a significant problem for many, and the solution is a Brow Lift.

A brow lift which is designed to raise the brows is also referred to as a forehead lift or forehead rejuvenation. This procedure helps create a more natural, longer-lasting result. By altering some of the underlying muscles of the forehead area, we can prevent many frown and worry lines from returning. Dr. William Samson strives to deliver the best Brow Lift in New York City, while always practicing patient safety. With state-of-the-art technology and decades of experience, we are proud to offer a Brow Lift that could drastically change your life.

Before & After


New York

Let’s start with the basics

What is Brow Lift?

A Brow Lift is a cosmetic procedure that raises the eyebrows to decrease the appearance of wrinkles and frown lines and to lift sagging skin. Aging typically causes the brows to move down on the head. Skin and soft tissues lose the ability to snap back into place after being stretched like worn-out window blinds. This causes the distance between the eyebrows and eyelashes to shorten, adding disproportion to your face. This sought-after surgery can be done in several ways, determining what works best for the type of patient and desired results. A Brow Lift can raise eyebrows and may provide a refreshed appearance.

New technology like the endoscope has made this procedure less invasive than it was in the past. There is also the classic or coronal method and a temporal lift. This article is dedicated to helping you understand these procedures in more detail to see if you’re a good candidate for a Brow Lift in NYC.

What to expect on the day of surgery

The day of a procedure starts with our dedication to our patient’s comfort. We strive to provide a setting full of confidence and reassurance that you have made the right decision to move towards a more happy life with a less droopy forehead. The top three surgical plants are included below:

The Classic or Coronal Brow Lift: A Classic Brow Lift that is performed under anesthesia and involves an incision that starts just above the ear level and follows the hairline up the forehead to the next ear.

Endoscopic Brow Lift: An Endoscopic Brow lift is a minimally invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia. After making a series of small incisions hidden in your hair, Dr. Smson uses specialized equipment to release and elevate brow tissue gently. Generally, this procedure involves faster healing time and less bruising.

Temporal Lift: A Temporal Lift is also a minimally invasive procedure but can be performed under local anesthesia in the office. This scaled-back endoscopic lift can produce excellent results with minimal downtime.

We are here to answer questions and provide you with our expert guidance if you have any questions or concerns before your appointment. The procedure can take anywhere from one to two hours, depending on the technique used.

What’s the First Step?

The first step to getting a Brow Lift in New York City is having realistic expectations about what the procedure can and can’t do for your appearance. Deciding to move forward with any Plastic Surgery can be hard, but our experienced team, led by Dr. Samson, is here to tell you it is the easiest step!

After examination in our New York City office, Dr. Samson will discuss the possible methods of which Brow Lift technique will best work for you. We are here to help in every way possible. Clarity and comfort are something Dr. Samson strives for with each of his patients and our team is here to provide the answers and clarity on all steps forward.

We look forward to getting this conversation started with clarity so you can be one step closer to a more youthful face and a comfortable and confident life.

Who are the Best Candidates for Brow Lift?

Ideal candidates will have realistic expectations and be committed to pre-and post-surgery care instructions. We have found that patients 40 years old or above usually make for the best candidates for surgery. Your upper forehead muscles loosen at this age, and the skin begins to droop. If you suffer from one or more of the following conditions, you could be an ideal candidate:

  • Visible furrows between brows
  • Vision obstruction caused by heavily sagging brows
  • Genetics for a low brow
  • Droopy brows
  • An older or tired look on the face
  • Heavy upper lids
  • Deep horizontal lines on the forehead

Patients should also be:

  • Physically healthy
  • Nonsmoker
  • Have a positive outlook and realistic goals

Brow Lift Recovery

Most of our patients find that recovery time from a Brow Lift can take up to ten to fourteen days. Incisions or wound healing may take additional time, and sutures or clips will be removed when Dr. Samson appropriately determines it. You should be ready to return to work and regular activity within seven to ten days (we highly recommend you avoid strenuous activity for several more weeks). You may experience numbness around the face area, but this almost always subsides within a few weeks.

How Much Does Brow Lift Cost in New York City?

The cost of a Brow Lift or Forehead Lift in New York City will vary on several factors. The most suitable way to understand the price of your procedure is to come in for a consultation and allow Dr. William Samson to give you an examination and discuss your best course of action. If you’re interested in financing, please inquire about Alpaheon, which is our financing network dedicated to helping you spread out the payment process.

Brow Lift FAQs

Are Brow Lift painful?

Our patients report very little pain following brow lift surgery. In the first few days after surgery, we recommend you rest with your head elevated and take the pain medication provided. Dr. Samson will work with you to create a recovery plan, offering specific instructions on caring for any incisions.

How many appointments will I need?

We understand the needed clarity regarding the number of appointments so that you can adjust the schedule accordingly. Once an initial meeting is scheduled with Dr. William Samson in New York City, we can answer questions and provide you with our expert guidance for the future scheduling of necessary appointments. There will likely be a follow-up visit one week after surgery so that Dr. Samson can ensure that the surgery is healing properly. All other visits will be discussed with our patient coordinator prior to surgery.  

How long until I see results?

The results of your Brow Lift will almost instantly be visible and only improve with time. Swelling and bruising are most common during the first ten days after surgery and are mostly resolved after about two weeks. Post-surgical swelling will settle, and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new look should continue to grow as you recover after the procedure. The final results of your Brow Lift will appear over the next four to six months and last up to a decade. 

Can I combine Brow Lift with other procedures?

Most of our satisfied patients considering having a Brow Lift also seek to combine it with other Aesthetic Procedures/Services, such as other facial procedures like Eyelid Surgery or a Facelift. Any questions about combining procedures with a Brow Lift at William Samson MD can be directed toward our team in a consultation.

What are the risks associated with Brow Lift? 

With any Plastic Surgery comes the rare chance of risks. The decision to have a procedure is highly personal. You will have to decide if the surgery will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications of a brow lift are acceptable. Some risks may include the following: 
  • Scarring
  • Changes in skin sensation
  • Asymmetry in the position of the brows
  • Hair problems
Dr. Samson aims to minimize all the risks related to our procedures, as every single one of our patients is a top priority for success and safety.
