Frequently Asked Questions
A brow lift improves the forehead and area above the brows. In particular, deep creases or droopy brows can be improved through the brow lift procedure.
A brow lift is commonly performed with other procedures such as a blepharoplasty or facelift, which addresses the orbital areas around the eyes and the mid to lower face, respectively.
Brow lift procedures are performed using general anesthesia. They are outpatient procedures, which means patients can return home later the same day.
There are different techniques used to perform a brow lift, depending on the patient and his or her aesthetic goals.
For example, a popular method known as an endoscopic brow lift is performed by making short incisions just behind the hairline. A tiny camera and thin instruments are delicately inserted to lift and reposition the muscles and underlying tissues. Excess fat and tissue are removed as needed to sculpt a smooth and youthful brow.
Recovery after a brow lift differs slightly depending on the patient and whether or not multiple facial cosmetic procedures were performed. Generally, patients feel little discomfort after a brow lift. Although, it’s common to feel tightness and sore around the incision area and throughout the brow. Patients can shower and shampoo their hair within two days of the procedure, or as soon as the bandage is removed. Incisions are typically closed with sutures or staples; these are removed about a week after surgery. Swelling and bruising is normal for the first 7-14 days after surgery.
Patients may regain limited activity within a day or two but should plan on taking it easy for at least the first 4 weeks after surgery.
Patients will also be advised to avoid direct sun exposure for 12-18 months following surgery. Intense exercise, sexual activity, or any activity that would cause a significant increase in blood pressure should be limited for 4 weeks. Most patients are able to return to work within a week to ten days after the procedure.
A heavy or furrowed brow can affect how you and other people perceive your facial expressions. For example, deep creases in the brow can mistakenly give the appearance of worry or concern.
If your brow is naturally heavy or furrowed due to aging, you may be a good candidate for brow lift surgery.
Ideal candidates are in general good health, non-smokers, and realistic about their aesthetic beauty goals.
