About Brow Lift Surgery
Dr. Theodore T. Foley performs brow lift surgery (browplasty) at Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery of Central Pennsylvania in Camp Hill, PA, to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the upper face. This procedure is also referred to as a forehead lift and utilizes advanced techniques to correct unwanted signs of aging by removing excess skin. This excess skin is removed and tissue is reposition to create a smoother, more youthful appearance. Deep creases, folds, and wrinkles can cause you to look older then you are or you may appear to be tired or angry. The brow lift can change the shape of your brows and give you a refreshed and rejuvenated look. The procedure can be done alone or can be combined with other procedures, such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), a facelift, eyelid tuck, and facial resurfacing procedures. As a board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Foley has extensive experience in brow lift surgery. This minimally invasive procedure can dramatically improve your appearance and create a natural lift that enhances your facial features.
"Best plastic surgeon in the area! After exploring several options, I chose Dr. Foley because he was very qualified and knowledgeable. He was caring, professional and did a great job. He talked me through the procedure step by step. His staff was amazing and caring as well. He made sure I was pain free the entire time and put me at ease. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking plastic surgery."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Jun 28, 2017

"Dr. Foley is an Excellent Surgeon - I could not have hoped for a better outcome! Dr. Foley is very precise and highly skilled. My biggest regret is I didn’t come talk to him sooner. My boobs now look like they belong in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition!"- L. / RealSelf / Sep 13, 2018
"I am so grateful to have the good fortune to end up in Dr. Foley's very good hands. I had undergone breast reconstruction with a different plastic surgeon 10 years ago and had a disappointing cosmetic outcome. I disliked feeling vain and insufficiently grateful for the help that I got, and was reluctant to seek another surgeon's help. I am so glad that I did. Dr. Foley is very kind and sensitive and collaborative, and so very skilled and invested in an optimal outcome for his patients."- C.H. / Healthgrades / Aug 21, 2018
"Dr Foley explained to me that if a woman has an unbalanced appearance after breast cancer, she can have surgery to create proper symmetry.I had always been 'abundant.' This was the best opportunity to get reduction surgery as well as re-establish symmetry. Dr Foley is very sensitive and kind...with a touch of gentle humor.I still can't believe that I was vain enough to get this surgery. I'm glad I did. I feel so much better. Now, I'm 'living the dream.'"- E.A. / Healthgrades / Aug 18, 2018
While the injectable Botox, which is also available for the patient pursuing rejuvenation without surgery, can smooth out forehead lines and even lift up the brows slightly, any significant drooping of the brows and deep furrows can be better corrected with a brow lift.
The best candidates for brow lift surgery are men and women who have:
- Overall good health
- Noticeable forehead wrinkles
- Droopy eyelids or brows
- Low eyebrows that look tired or unhappy
- Sagging or drooping brows that create a sad or angry expression
- Deep horizontal lines and grooves along the forehead
- Deep frown lines or furrows between the brows
- Excess skin hanging over the eyes
- Obscured upper eyelids because of sagging brows
What to Expect
During your initial consultation, the doctor will examine the overall health of your skin and examine the wrinkles, creases, and folds in your forehead to determine the best procedure to meet your needs.
In most cases, this procedure is performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. An endoscopic brow lift is a minimally invasive procedure that involves using an endoscope to access the tissues and muscle beneath the skin through very small incisions made around the hairline. This helps to eliminate creases and furrows around the forehead, restoring a smooth appearance.
A traditional brow lift is performed by making a coronal incision where an incision is made around the top of the head from each ear. Dr. Foley can then lift the forehead skin around this area and adjust the muscles. The incision is easy to conceal under the hair. Results are fairly noticeable once the swelling and bruising have subsided.
Following brow lift surgery, swelling and bruising is expected on and around the forehead and eyes. You can expect this to subside after 1-2 weeks. It may take 3-4 weeks following the procedure before you can see signs of improvement.

Cost of Brow Lift
The cost of a Brow Lift ranges on average from $3,460 to $5,260. If you are comparing prices between different plastic surgery practices, make sure you are comparing the fees which include all aspects of your upcoming surgery. These prices include the physician, anesthesia, and facility fees assuming that your surgery is being completed in a surgery center. If your surgery needs to be performed at the hospital, the fees will be ~$1500-$2000 more depending on the procedure, the surgical time, and whether or not you choose to stay overnight at the hospital. Also, your best choice for a cosmetic procedure of any kind is to choose a plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Theodore Foley, who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who is local to you. Not only will you receive the best surgical care that way, but you will also receive the best postoperative care.

Some procedures, which do not require anesthesia, may be done at our office and would not then entail an anesthesia fee. If patients need to have their surgery at a hospital, prices are typically more expensive and will be outlined after consultation.
