Mini Brow Lift in West Palm Beach, Florida

Are you tired of sagging skin on your upper eyelids and your low eyebrows? The Mini Brow Lift is a highly effective surgical solution that raises and tightens the skin of the forehead and eyebrows to address sagging brows and revitalize the upper part of your face.

The forehead notoriously shows signs of aging early on. Constant facial expressions and external factors can cause lines and wrinkles to form on the forehead. This issue typically arises in people in their 20s and intensifies as the years pass. A sagging forehead can make you look older and convey tiredness, sadness, or anger. A temporal brow lift or forehead lift can effectively address these concerns. 

Along with a BOTOX®, DAXXIFY® or Dysport® treatment, a Mini Brow Lift procedure can give you a refreshed look. Dr. Fredric Barr, M.D., F.A.C.S., our Board-certified plastic surgeon, has more than three decades of  plastic surgery experience. His knowledge, expertise, artistry, and prioritization of patient safety ensure enduring and remarkable results.

What are the Benefits of a Mini Brow Lift?

A Mini Brow Lift procedure improves the lateral droop and repositions the eyebrows into a more youthful position for a natural and refreshed look. The primary benefits of a forehead lift include:

  • Minimally Invasive Procedure: Performed in the office with little downtime and a quick recovery.
  • Safely Performed in Our Plastic Surgery Office: Dr. Barr performs this brow lift procedure safely under local anesthesia (a quick, simple numbing injection) in our office. 
  • Customization: The technique allows for a customized approach, as the surgeon can address specific concerns and tailor the procedure to the patient's unique anatomy and goals.
  • Fast Recovery Time: Most patients resume their lifestyle & most normal activities the next day.

What to Expect During a Brow Lift Procedure

Through precise techniques, Dr. Barr creates incisions in front of the hairline to reposition the skin and soft tissues, resulting in a more youthful appearance to your eyes and eyebrows. Using specialized instruments, he lifts and repositions the brow muscles and tissues, and may adjust or release the underlying muscles to smooth out forehead wrinkles and elevate the brows to look more youthful. Dr. Barr also removes excess skin.

In some cases, we can even lower the hairline to reduce forehead size. Experience significant improvements in skin tightness, eye radiance, and overall facial appearance.

Is a Brow Lift Right for Me?

A brow lift is a convenient, minimally invasive procedure that reduces wrinkles and rejuvenates the forehead area for many patients. However, to be a good candidate for a non-surgical brow lift, an individual must meet the following requirements:

  • Physical Health: Candidates should be in good overall health, without any medical conditions that may increase the risks of surgery or affect healing.
  • Realistic Expectations: A positive outlook and realistic goals for the procedure are vital. Patients should understand the potential outcomes and limitations of a temporal lift.
  • Aging Concerns: Candidates usually have concerns about the appearance of their forehead, including sagging brows, forehead wrinkles, and excess skin.
  • Stop Smoking/Non-Smoker: Smoking can impair the healing process and increase the risk of complications. Therefore, being a non-smoker is generally preferred for candidates considering any surgical procedure.

During your consultation with our patient counselor, we will discuss your individual needs and goals, evaluate your medical history, and weigh the potential risks and benefits of the procedure.

What Can I Expect After A Mini Brow Lift?

After undergoing a temporal brow lift, patients may experience certain side effects, such as:

  • Mild Swelling and Bruising: It is normal to experience some swelling and bruising in the forehead and eye area after the procedure. This typically subsides within a few days to a couple of weeks.
  • Discomfort or Mild Pain: Patients may experience mild discomfort or pain, which can be managed with prescribed pain medications or over-the-counter pain relievers.
  • Numbness or Tingling Sensation: Temporary numbness or tingling in the forehead or scalp area may occur due to nerve manipulation during the surgery. This usually resolves within a few weeks.

What Will My Doctor Recommend After a Brow Lift Procedure?

Following a brow lift, Dr. Barr will advise the following to support your recovery:

  • Rest: Take time off work and avoid strenuous activities for at least one to two weeks following the procedure to allow for proper healing.
  • Head Elevation: Keep the head elevated, even during sleep, to help reduce swelling. Use an extra pillow or sleep in a recliner for the first few days, if possible.
  • Cold Compresses: Apply a cold compress or ice pack to the treated area to minimize swelling and bruising. Follow Dr. Barr's instructions on duration and frequency.
  • Medication and Skincare: Take any prescribed medications as instructed, including antibiotics and pain medication, and follow Dr. Barr's recommended skincare regimen.
  • Avoidance of Certain Activities: Avoid activities that increase blood flow to the face, such as bending, lifting heavy objects, or participating in strenuous exercise, for at least two weeks.
  • Follow-up Appointments: Attending these scheduled meetings with Dr. Barr is crucial for monitoring your healing progress, removing sutures if necessary, and addressing any concerns.

Patients should follow all post-operative instructions to promote optimal healing and minimize complications.

What are the Costs Associated with Brow Lifts?

As compared to temporal brow lift surgery, in-office brow lifts are much more affordable. However, the cost will vary from patient to patient, depending on each individual's unique needs and goals. At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, we accept CareCredit, check, cash, and credits and offer other financing options for your convenience.

What Other Treatment Options Do I Have with Brow Lifts?

You can combine a Mini Brow Lift with an Eyelid Lift to eliminate vertical frown lines and achieve complete forehead rejuvenation. At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, we also offer a Mini Face/Awake Lift, Mini Neck Lift, Mini Vertical Facelift, and Ear Reshaping. During your consultation with our patient counselor, you can discuss which procedures are appropriate for you.

Our Faqs


If I am seeking to undergo a combination of procedures, will they be done together or consecutively? What is the timeline for multiple procedures?


The answer depends on multiple factors, including the specific combination of procedures, your recovery rates, your age and health status, and your behaviors or habits. More invasive surgeries typically require recovery time ranging between 6 and 12 weeks to 6 months, and surgeries to the same area of your body will also generally require recovery time between procedures.

However, if you are in good health and the combination of procedures in question will be performed on different parts of your body and are not especially invasive, a combination of procedures could potentially be approved together on a case-by-case basis. It is imperative that the combination of procedures does not compromise your healing, and your attention to prescribed pre-operation and recovery habits also plays a significant role. Schedule a consultation for an assessment and guidance regarding the procedures you are considering.


Will it be obvious that I “got work done” after my procedure?


While aging affects us all, there are steps we can take to put forth a more vibrant appearance. We seek to perform subtle adjustments to address imperfections and the wear of time while retaining your natural look. While you should notice an improvement, the glaring changes or distortions in appearance you are concerned about and may have seen from other surgeons’ work do not meet the standard of quality plastic and cosmetic surgery we perform in our office.

Dr. Frederic M. Barr is a board-certified Plastic & Cosmetic Surgeon with over 30 years of experience performing Plastic Surgery in South Florida. We enhance and refine your appearance according to your goals. Review our Gallery of Before & After Photos to see some examples of our work.


What does Breast Explant Surgery entail, and will my breasts be “back to normal” after the surgery?


For patients with Breast Implant Illness (BII), which can include allergy, auto-immune, and thyroid hormone issues, this has been an emerging topic with significant press coverage in recent years. Although numerous medical professionals have demonstrated varying responses to these women’s concerns, we believe in addressing these women’s experiences and symptoms. In response to this phenomenon, we have also chosen not to perform new breast implant surgeries. We perform Total Capsulectomy on patients with breast implants, which involves the removal of both the saline or silicone implant and the capsule around it.

Removal of the implants and surrounding scar tissue has been shown to improve women’s health concerning these symptoms. While some women choose no further procedure following Breast Explant Surgery, some patients elect to have a Mastopexy procedure that involves reshaping the breast tissue for a pleasant cosmetic breast appearance. We welcome your specific questions regarding these procedures and their anticipated effects for your situation. See our Breast Implant Explantation (Total Capsulectomy) page for more detailed information, including before-and-after photo examples.
