Brow Lift

Brow Lift:

A brow lift, or forehead lift, is a procedure that lifts the eyebrows, resulting in a refreshed appearance to the forehead and the area surrounding the eyes. 

Is a Brow Lift Right for Me?

One of the most popular procedures for both men and women, a brow lift works by lifting the eyebrows, removing the weight off the upper eyelids. As a result, the procedure softens the horizontal forehead lines, the frown line, and the furrows between the eyebrows. It also reduces lateral hooding and softens crow’s feet. In women, it will restore and enhance the shape of the eyebrow.

Many patients choose to do this in conjunction with eyelid surgery, which complements the effects of a brow lift nicely.

The Procedure

A brow lift can be performed in a number of different ways. The procedure you chose will depend on your hairline and how much elevation is needed. The procedure most often performed by Dr. Nitta utilizes the endoscopic technique combined with a limited temporal incision, keeping all incisions hidden within the hairline. Dr. Nitta utilizes the Endotine® system to reduce the chance of hair loss at the incisions.


You will have a large head dressing on and require a drain after surgery. The drain is removed the next day, and the dressing a few days later. You will wear a band around the forehead for the next few weeks. There is mild discomfort and minimal bruising.

Dr. Nitta is not only Board-Certified in Plastic Surgery, she also is Board-Certified in Otolaryngology/ Head and Neck surgery, providing her the additional expertise and experience to perform your facial surgery.
