First, let’s start with: What does it mean to get your brows lifted?

A brow lift is a cosmetic procedure that improves the appearance of the upper area of your face, including the forehead, eyes, and brows. This is done by raising the skin and soft tissue for a tighter, smoother appearance.

Why a Brow Lift?

Brow lifts are used for a variety of concerns, including

  • Hooded eyelids: Sagging brows can push the skin around your eyelid down, giving a “hooded” appearance. A brow lift can provide a more youthful and alert appearance.
  • Fine lines and Wrinkles: A brow lift can improve the fine lines wrinkles of your forehead, eye area, nose bridge, and surrounding areas of the upper face.
  • Frown lines: Often associated with concentrating for long periods, brown lines are vertical creases. They appear between your eyebrows. And they can be significantly reduced or eliminated by a brow lift.
  • Unsymmetrical features: Uneven eyebrows are a common issue where the brow on one side of the face is unsymmetrical to the other. Brow lifts can help solve this by evening out the skin.

How is a Brow Lift Performed?

Brow lifts are a relatively quick procedure. They take one to two hours on average, depending on your goal. And they can be performed in various ways.

  • Open Brow lift: An open brow lift is also known as the standard brow lift. Doctors make an incision across the forehead, usually along the hairline. As a result, your muscles are softened, excess fat is removed, and the skin is pulled back and set into place.
  • Endoscopic Brow Lift: This technique uses a thin tube known as an endoscope, which has a fibre optic light and camera attached. Surgeons use it to see inside their incisions. It helps to reduce scarring and after-effects such as infection.

Recovery Time

Because this is a straightforward procedure, complications are rare. Two to three weeks is considered the average recovery time for a brow lift, depending on your procedure. During this time, you may experience mild soreness, tightness, and numbness in your forehead region. After this, patients usually see a full range of movement return to their brow area. There may be slight scarring. But it’s likely to be inconspicuous or not visible at all within your hairline.
