Brow and Forehead Lift

In Encinitas, CA

Restore Youth and Lift

A brow lift, sometimes called a forehead lift, is a transformative procedure designed to restore youth and lift to the upper face. Double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Mario Yco at Your Cosmetic Office brings skill and artistry to each brow lift procedure he performs, paying close attention to addressing concerns such as

drooping brows, forehead lines, and excess skin on the top part of the face, while making sure you maintain a full range of facial expressions. Schedule a consultation at Your Cosmetic Office to discover how a subtle brow elevation not only rejuvenates the face but restores your confidence too.

What Is a Brow Lift?

Sometimes called a forehead lift, a brow lift is a cosmetic procedure aimed at addressing concerns on the upper portion of the face related to aging. These concerns can include sagging brows, forehead wrinkles, and excess skin. Brow lifts intervene in the aging process by restoring a tighter, smoother, and more youthful appearance on the upper face and forehead. While this procedure offers a more youthful appearance, it can also establish a more open and harmonious facial expression.

Who Is a Candidate for a Brow Lift?

The ideal candidate for a brow lift is looking to address specific concerns related to aging in the upper face. A common concern amongst candidates is drooping or sagging of the brows, resulting in a permanent look of tiredness or sternness. Those with deep forehead furrows and wrinkles may also find a brow lift beneficial in smoothing out the forehead and achieving a younger look. Age is a factor in determining if a brow lift is right for you, but it is not the only way we determine who is eligible for this procedure as we all age at different rates. Ideal candidates are in good overall health and have realistic expectations concerning the results of a brow lift. The best way to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure is by scheduling an appointment with Dr. Yco at Your Cosmetic Office.


“Dr. Yco is an extremely knowledgeable plastic surgeon”

Dr. Yco is an extremely knowledgeable plastic surgeon. I have been patient with him for many, many years. He always knows exactly what is needed, but he listens very carefully and patiently. His services are excellent and have very reasonable prices compared to others in this field. I trust him 110%. Highly recommended.

Brow Lift Procedure

During a consultation with Dr. Yco, you will be given the opportunity to share your concerns and goals regarding your brow lift. All of these will be taken into account during your procedure. You will be given general anesthesia during your brow lift, so you will not feel a thing. Dr. Yco begins by making strategic incisions hidden within the hairline in order to access any underlying tissue. Depending on the surgical technique being used, Dr. Yco may lift and reposition the underlying muscles in a more youthful posture before trimming the excess skin and stitching up any incisions. Some brow lift techniques include traditional, endoscopic, or temporal methods.

Post-Op Care

A brow lift results in a subtly elevated brow line that not only complements your overall facial harmony but creates a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Immediately following the procedure, you can expect to experience some slight swelling and bruising around the forehead and eyes. Keeping your head elevated and applying a cold compress can help alleviate and manage these symptoms. It is important to follow all post-operative instructions which can include avoiding strenuous activity, bending over, and exposure to sunlight. You will be able to get a good sense of what your final results will look like around 10-14 days after surgery. If Dr. Yco feels your recovery is not progressing fast enough, he may recommend hyperbaric Co2 treatments or red light therapy.
