Voted Best Plastic Surgeon in Bakersfield, Dr. Harinder Chahal, MD, FACS, has extensive experience with Brow Lift Surgery to help:

Tired of Looking Older Than You Feel? A Brow Lift Can Help

Do you find yourself constantly furrowing your brow, creating unwanted forehead wrinkles that make you look older than your age? Perhaps your once-perky eyebrows have begun to droop, casting a tired shadow over your eyes. As we age, the brow can descend causing a “tired” or “angry” appearance, in addition to causing excess skin folding at the bridge of the nose and outer corner of the eyes.


Dr. Chahal is highly skilled in multiple techniques to elevate the brows, including minimally invasive surgery that hides all necessary incisions behind the hairline. While some approaches focus on shaping the brow itself, others can elevate the entirety of the forehead, which can also help improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Dr. Chahal will customize the surgical approach based on your unique anatomy and desired outcome.

Your Brow Lift Journey

Before Brow Lift Surgery

If you’re struggling with misshapen or drooping brows, the first step is a surgical consultation. Ideal candidates are generally in good health without untreated hyperthyroidism, diabetes, or high blood pressure.


During the consultation, Dr. Chahal meticulously evaluates your facial structure and medical history to determine which surgical approach will be best suited for your needs. He will explain the entire procedure, discuss risks and limitations, and address any questions or concerns you may have.

During and After Brow Lift Surgery

A brow lift is an outpatient procedure typically performed under general anesthesia at Empire Surgery Center, which is conveniently located next to our office. During the surgery, Dr. Chahal will remove excess skin and specific sections of muscle tissue, then pull the skin taut to smooth out any forehead wrinkles. An anchor may be placed to hold the brow in place. For most surgical brow lift approaches, incisions are made in the hairline and finely sutured to minimize the appearance of surgical scars. The entire procedure typically takes one to two hours.


Following surgery, you can expect some swelling and bruising, which will gradually subside over the next few weeks. Most patients can return to work and normal activities within a week or two.

Frequently Asked Questions

This is best discussed during a personalized consultation with our experienced surgeon. Generally, good candidates are in good overall health, have realistic expectations, and experience sagging brows, forehead wrinkles, or hooded eyelids. Age isn’t necessarily a determining factor, but most patients are over 40 with good skin elasticity.

We offer a few different approaches depending on your unique needs. A Pretrichial (Hairline) Brow/Forehead Lift involves making a discreet incision a few millimeters behind the hairline. The forehead’s skin and muscles are gently lifted upward, and a strip of skin with underlying tissue is removed at the incision point. Once fully healed, the incision scar becomes virtually undetectable, thanks to a technique that preserves hair follicles, ensuring hair growth along the scar. This particular brow lift is particularly beneficial for individuals with high foreheads, resulting in a subtle shortening of the upper third of the face.


The Temporal Brow Lift is positioned in the temple region, approximately 1-2 cm behind the temporal hairline to discreetly conceal the incision. This technique is minimally invasive, focusing solely on the outer aspect of the eyebrows to create an elegant arch and address lateral hooding of the eyes. It is frequently combined with eyelid surgery under local anesthesia to enhance eye appearance and refine eyebrow arches.

While the temporal brow lift may not provide as long-lasting results as the pretrichial approach, its advantages lie in being less invasive. Moreover, it can be performed under local anesthesia, and the resulting scar is virtually undetectable, completely hidden by hair.

Like any surgery, risks include infection, bleeding, and scarring. However, these are rare when performed by qualified surgeons using advanced techniques. We thoroughly discuss all potential risks during your consultation and prioritize your safety every step of the way.

The cost varies depending on factors like the type of technique used and anesthesia requirements. We understand cost concerns and offer transparent pricing along with flexible financing options to make Brow Lift accessible to you.

Most patients experience some swelling and bruising that gradually subsides within a few weeks. Returning to work and normal activities can happen within a week or two, though individual recovery times vary. We provide detailed post-operative instructions and compassionate support to ensure a smooth healing process.

Our goal is to enhance your natural beauty, not dramatically alter your appearance. We take a conservative approach to achieve a refreshed, youthful look that blends seamlessly with your features.

With proper care and maintenance, you can enjoy a rejuvenated appearance for many years. We discuss ways to maximize the longevity of your results during your consultation and provide ongoing support to help you maintain your optimal look.

We’ll provide detailed pre-operative instructions covering things like stopping certain medications, avoiding smoking, and maintaining good overall health. We encourage open communication and answer any questions or concerns you have throughout the process.
