Awake, Alert, Ageless
Gravity, UV damage, and the buildup of repeated facial expressions are all major contributors to wrinkle development, which is often the first visible sign of aging on the upper face.
Then, there are some people who always appear tired, tense, or irritated. Fortunately, a Brow Lift (also called a forehead lift) delivers a youthful, refreshed appearance. Many patients fear that a brow lift will leave them looking permanently surprised, unnaturally wide-eyed, or with other unwanted effects that show they have obviously had plastic surgery. Dr. Yalif’s years of experience in Brow Lift surgery, however, means he knows just how to create a younger, natural-looking appearance that refreshes the face.
A Brow Lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a cosmetic procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the forehead and eyebrows. It can be performed to address issues such as sagging or drooping eyebrows, furrows or creases in the forehead, and hooding or excess skin on the upper eyelids.
During your consultation for a Brow Lift Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Yalif, can help you decide how dramatic or subtle you want the desired results. After Brow Lift surgery, patients will look more awake, more alert, and more like the age they feel. Interested in requesting a consultation at one of our offices in Atlanta or Alpharetta?

Deep forehead wrinkles created by a lifetime of facial expressions can cause eyebrows to droop, which pushes down the eyelids and creates a tired, angry appearance. Brow Lift surgery, also known as a browplasty or forehead lift, in metro Atlanta at Y Plastic Surgery can create a long-lasting improvement that takes years off a patient’s face. By removing aged skin from the upper face while improving support structure and reshaping soft tissue, triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Asaf Yalif helps patients look and feel younger.

Most Brow Lift surgeries are performed as outpatient surgery at an accredited hospital or surgical center with the patient under general anesthesia. For Brow surgery, incisions are usually small and placed in low-visibility areas, such as behind the hairline or eyebrows.
Once the tiny incisions are made along the hairline, the doctor carefully lifts and repositions the skin, removing any excess skin, then smoothing and repositioning the muscles and soft tissue while elevating the eyebrows to an appropriate level for a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Brow Lift surgery usually takes about two hours, and once the doctor has cleared the patient, a responsible adult may take them home to recover.
Whether it is a facelift or a tummy tuck, we will want to maximize our results. Dr. Yalif knows that the best way to help your body through the surgery journey is with adjunctive skincare regimens. These recommendations will help maintain your results longer, refine scars, and achieve your desired aesthetic!
For face procedures, we recommend a pre-op retinoid, usually from the Environ line. Their multi-level retinoid system allows the escalation of the retinoid’s effect, usually without all the drying and itchiness usually associated with these types of products. Post-operatively, we recommend a combination of therapies aimed at keeping your skin youthful while allowing your incisions to fully heal with excellent support, essentially maintaining your results and improving the quality of your skin over time. These include Environ’s Skin Essentia line for both cleansing and moisturizing, followed by the Vita-peptide C-quence serum 2 – containing vitamins A, C, and E, along with hydrating and toning elements for your skin. We add the super moisturizer at night and the ISDIN SPF during the day to complete the recovery of your skin and enhance your results for years.
If you’ve had an eye procedure or just want a good recommendation for an eye cream, Dr. Y recommends the Environ Vita-peptide gel. It will help with puffiness, fine lines, crow’s feet, and more. Essentially it is an excellent product on its own and will augment any result you get if Dr. Y is doing a periorbital procedure too.
And don’t think we neglect your body! In addition to the recommendations above, we highly recommend The Derma-Lac lotion postoperatively to help exfoliate your skin and soften smooth and moisturize the treated areas to improve overall skin health. We also will add vitamin A, C, and E body oil to help the appearance of stretch marks, scarring, pigmentation, and dry skin. Our experts are happy to answer questions and make additional recommendations based on your particular needs.
Recovery from a Brow Lift varies from person to person, but most patients are able to return to their normal activities within a week or two. It's important to avoid strenuous activities and exposure to sunlight during the recovery period to allow the incisions to heal properly.
Most patients take one to three weeks to recover after a brow lift but are generally able to drive and return to work in two weeks. During the first days after surgery, patients should expect some temporary bruising, discomfort, tightness, and numbness. The doctor will talk to each patient about what they need to do during their recovery and provide tips for an easier recovery. Patients will need to return for a follow-up appointment after one week to have their sutures removed and their healing progress checked. While visible improvements will be immediately apparent, the final results of the brow lift are usually seen about four to six months after the surgery.
