What is a Brow Lift?

The eyes are the first thing that people notice about each other and also are one of the most powerful means of non-verbal communication. When the brow has drooped down too low, the face has a tired or fatigued appearance. Elevating the brow to its appropriate position leads to an improved appearance that makes the individual look better rested and more youthful.

Who Is An Ideal Candidate For a Brow Lift?

Ideal candidates for brow lift treatment may include individuals who:

  • Have a low or sagging brow that makes them appear tired or angry
  • Have deep wrinkles or frown lines in their forehead
  • Have excess skin in the forehead area
  • Are generally healthy and do not have any medical conditions that could increase the risk of complications during or after the procedure
  • Do not smoke or are willing to quit smoking before and after the procedure to promote proper healing and reduce the risk of complications
  • Are willing and able to follow the post-operative care instructions provided by their surgeon
  • Have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure and understand that it will not stop the aging process.

Brow Lift Procedure

The procedure may be done under sedation or even under local anesthesia and takes less than an hour to complete. There are a variety of methods that can be used for a browlift. The method used for a particular individual depends on that individual’s needs. The incisions are hidden either behind the hairline or in a natural crease that hides the incision. The brow is elevated, which helps improve the aged and tired appearance of the eyes.

Recovery Process

The recovery is typically about a week, although bruising and swelling can persist for a longer period of time. Most patients can typically resume work within 6-10 days and normal activities within 1-2 weeks after surgery.

  Patients can expect to see immediate improvements in the appearance of their brow and forehead following the procedure. However, full results may take several weeks to months to become fully visible, as the swelling and bruising subside, and the tissues fully heal.
