Eyebrow Lift

The Ultimate Guide to Eyebrow Lift

Create a more youthful appearance with an eyebrow lift.

The procedure is also known as a forehead lift, and by tightening the soft tissue above the brows, lines wrinkles and sagging skin are banished. As we age, the arched appearance of the brow becomes more horizontal, which makes us look older, or even grumpy, and a brow lift can reverse this and restore a younger look.

Am I suitable for brow lift surgery?

If you have:

  • Excess skin hanging over your eyes
  • Deep horizontal lines across your forehead
  • Frown lines between your eyes
  • A tired, grumpy or sad appearance because of sagging eyebrows

Brow lift surgery may well be for you. There are a number of different surgical techniques which will affect the outcome so you will need to discuss this fully with your surgeon to ensure you will achieve the desired result.

The Brow Lift Procedure

The different brow lift procedures are:

  • Endoscopic brow lift – A long, thin tube (an endoscope) with a camera and light attached is inserted through several small incisions in the scalp, allowing the surgeon to work on the internal structures of the forehead.
  • Open brow lift – A long incision is made across the forehead in the hairline, or in one of the creases in the forehead. Fat and excess skin is removed and the remaining skin pulled and stitched together to create the new brow position.
  • Limited incision – This is a combination of both procedures with resulting scars hidden in the temporal hairline. This technique doesn’t address the center of the brow, but is good for crow’s feet.

Brow Lift Procedure Recovery Time

Immediately after surgery you may be given cold packs to reduce swelling around the eyes, and you would be best to sleep in an elevated position for around a week. Bruising, swelling and numbness should begin to subside after 5 days. Sutures will normally be removed after a week.

Showering and bathing can be resumed the day after your operation but you will need to be very careful when washing and drying your hair.

You will be able to take part in light activity, including walks, the day after surgery, and full activity within 3 weeks. Strenuous activity, including workouts, should be resumed, gently, after a month. You may return to work after a week.
