A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a cosmetic procedure aimed at reducing wrinkles across the forehead and frown lines between the eyes. The procedure can raise sagging brows that are hooding the upper eyelids.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2018, the average cost of a brow lift was $3,623. This average cost does not include all related expenses. Dr. Bryan Correa performs hundreds of brow lifts each year and will work with you to determine a more accurate quote for your individual procedure.
What Goes Into the Cost of a Brow Lift?
Costs associated with brow lift surgery can vary depending on several factors, including:
- Anesthesia fees
- Hospital or surgical facility costs
- Medical tests
- Post-surgery garments
- Prescriptions for medication
- Surgeon’s fee
A surgeon’s fee for brow lift surgery will be based on his or her experience, the type of procedure used, and the geographic office location. This procedure is usually done for cosmetic reasons and therefore not covered by insurance.
What is Involved in the Procedure?
Brow lift surgeries are usually completed using one of three methods: coronal, hairline, or endoscopic. Dr. Correa will use the method that will best achieve your desired results. You will be put under general anesthesia for your comfort. The procedure typically takes one or two hours and you’re able to return home the same day.
What Can I Expect After Surgery?
After your procedure, it will be necessary for someone to drive you home. It may take 10-14 days for initial wound healing. You can return to work and normal activity at this time but should expect healing to continue over several more weeks as swelling dissipates. Full recovery may take several months. Protecting your skin from the sun is necessary to maintain your rejuvenated appearance.

How Soon Will I See Results?
You can immediately see a change in your appearance following your procedure. Patients typically enjoy full results within 2-3 months. As post-surgical swelling subsides, your incision lines will fade, and your overall look will continue to improve.
To achieve your goals and expectations, additional or complementary procedures may be needed. Eyelid surgery is the most common complementary procedure, often performed at the same time as a forehead lift. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Correa can help develop a customized combination treatment plan to meet your individual needs.
What Are My Payment Options?
When it comes to any major investment, it’s important to understand your financial obligations. Most surgeons accept payment in cash, check, or major credit card. Correa Plastic Surgery also contracts with financing companies to help ease the financial burden of your brow lift surgery.
The best way to know if a brow lift is right for you is to schedule a consultation with board-certified Dr. Correa. During your consultation, he will discuss your aesthetic goals, lifestyle, and medical history before recommending a course of treatment. Dr. Correa is committed to making sure you are aware of all associated costs of your procedure.
