Browlift surgery can very greatly in cost. There are several methods.
1. Chemical (Botox) which would cost between $300 to $700.
2. Endoscopic (video-assisted) which would cost between $4000 to $12,000.
3. Open (traditional) which would cost similar to the endoscopic.
However, not every procedure is appropriate for every patient. If you post a picture, we may be able to give you more specific advice/information.
Endocsopic browlift costs
The cost really varies and the 2 biggest factors in order of importance are surgeon experience and location. I can tell you that I do surgery in NYC and Beverly Hills and the cost in NYC are much higher then the BH costs because the anesthesilogists and operating rooms in NYC charge just about double that of their BH counterparts.
Cost for a Brow Lift Procedure
The brow lift procedure ranges between $6,000-6,500. Depending upon where you live and the facility you choose, costs can vary significantly. Make sure you find out if the price you are quoted includes all applicable fees as well as follow-up. Post-op appointments up to a year should be included in the costs, and remember there also may be additional lab work and prescription costs as well.
One thing to keep in mind is that the decision to undergo plastic surgery is an important one, and should not be taken lightly. Most definitely, the cost should not be your main focus or determining factor with any surgical procedure. Other factors should be careful evaluated as well, such as the experience of the surgeon, whether the surgeon is Board Certified and whether you feel comfortable with him or her. The facility should be properly licensed, with well trained anesthesiologists on board as well.

There is no one technique for brow lifts which can be performed utilizing various methods. This also may be achieved in combination with forehead lifts or forehead reductions or upper lid procedures of facelifts (temporal brow lifts) as well as with percutaneous (suture suspension) techniques.

Brow Lift Costs
The cost of any surgery includes many things, but the two major fees are the surgeon's fees and the anesthesia fees. One way to decrease the cost by at least a couple thousand dollars to to have it done under "local" anesthesia (same thing as IV sedation), as there is absolutely no reason I can think of to have it done under "general" anesthesia (where they put a tube down your throat, paralyze you and have a machine breathing for you).
A surgical forehead lift plus IV sedation, including surgical facility fees, assistant and staffing fees, pre-surgery and post-surgery clinic fees and all supplies and medication shouldn't cost much more than $5000 to $6000.
