Brow lift surgery, sometimes referred to as browplasty or a forehead lift, is a popular aesthetic treatment used to refresh the upper portion of the face by creating the appearance of a higher brow. A droopy brow can oftentimes create an angry or tired appearance. A brow lift surgically corrects a drooping brow to give you a rejuvenated face by removing excess skin while lifting the eyebrows. Led by Dr. Sean McNally, our practice has helped men and women attain a more youthful look with brow lift procedures. Injectable wrinkle relaxers and fillers are commonly used along with brow lift surgery at The Oregon Clinic in Portland, OR for optimal results, creating a smoother, softer look.

What Are the Benefits of a Brow Lift?

For those wanting to improve the increasing wrinkles in your eyebrow area in addition to firming excess skin, a customized brow lift in Portland, OR at The Oregon Clinic provides many advantages to help rejuvenate your aesthetic, which include:

  • Treats fine lines, folds, and wrinkles
  • Expands the eyes for a more awake, rested aesthetic
  • Diminishes the “worn down and angry” look
  • Reduces upper eyelid sagging
  • Raises the organic brow shape
  • Smoothes Crow’s feet

Anesthesia will be given before the procedure. This may be done through general anesthesia or IV sedation, depending on the extent of the surgery. The incision technique performed in a browplasty is determined by the degree of skin sag, if the forehead is affected, and the position of the hairline. Some of the different techniques Dr. McNally specializes in are:

  • Traditional Incision
    Also called the open browplasty incision, this surgery involves an incision placed at the top of the head behind the hairline. The open incision not only hides scars but also allows a certain amount of lift control during the procedure. The traditional incision works well for those with both frown lines and a sagging brow. This is the ideal technique for patients who are concerned about a receding hairline.
  • Trichophytic Incision
    The trichophytic incision is placed right against the hairline. It allows significant lift in the brow for women and men who have a low risk for hairline recession.
  • Lateral Brow Lift
    Also called a temporal browplasty, the lateral technique starts the incision inside the hairline slightly above the temples. The lateral incision permits the outer areas of the brow to be lifted and is best for sagging that is present in the outer brows. It also helps to smooth Crow's feet.
  • Endoscopic Forehead Lift
    The endoscopic lift is a more modern method used in browplasty surgery. It makes multiple tiny incisions in the hairline and inserts the endoscope, which is pushed to the eyebrow to release its attached tools. Through the camera of the endoscope, the brow tissue is suspended with stitches to lift the brow to a higher position.

I got a breast reduction with Dr McNally after a friend recommended me to him for gender affirming care. From beginning to end, I felt so safe, affirmed and comfortable. McNally and his entire team are warm & very comforting people in an environment that is typically very anxiety inducing. I’ve been beyond pleased with my results and the level of care I’ve received throughout the last 9 months. I’m sending anyone and everyone I know who needs surgery his way! Thanks Sean!

About Us
Do I need a brow lift or facelift?

Whether you should get a brow lift or full facelift will depend on your goals and where you have excess skin. You should candidly talk about your wants with Dr. McNally so he can help you choose what is best. Many patients come in wanting a facelift may find they only need a brow lift and vice versa. Using his experience, Dr. McNally can confidently help you decide on your treatment plan so you get the results you want.

What about nonsurgical treatments?

You may consider one of the many nonsurgical treatments, including laser skin tightening and injectables (like JUVÉDERM® and BOTOX®), that can give some improvements. However, a surgical brow lift is better for significant improvements and longer-lasting results. In your consultation, Dr. McNally can go over both your surgical and nonsurgical options to help you decide which is better for your needs.

What technique should I choose?

Dr. McNally will go over brow lift techniques in your consultation to help you know the benefits of each. He will then help you decide on the technique that best meets your needs and goals. Some of the factors that may influence your choice are your hairline (taking into account both your current hairline as well as your risk of developing a receding hairline), the degree of skin sagging, and how much time you can devote to recovery.
