How To Know if Its Time for a Brow Lift


As you grow older, the aging process can have a negative effect on your appearance and facial expressions. Undergoing an eyebrow lift procedure can minimize these effects, leading to a more vigorous and youthful appearance.


What is eyebrow lift surgery?

Some people confuse facelift surgery and eyelid surgery. There are differences in both focus and technique with these plastic surgeries. While facelifts work on the mid and lower face, a brow lift elevates the brows, smoothing out lines and wrinkles on the forehead and between the brows.

People sometimes combine brow lift surgery with eyelid surgery or a facelift to help improve the entire face.

When is a good time for a brow lift?

Undergoing a brow lift procedure is more than just about looking younger. When you grow older and the aging process impacts your brow area, it may make you seem angry or tired due to sagging skin and a heavier brow. A brow lift will tighten up the skin, leading to an improved appearance and a more pleasant facial expression.

A brow lift procedure can enhance your self-confidence and make your eye area appear more attractive and help you appear more alert.

If you’re wondering if a brow lift might help you, consider if you have any of the below:

  • Extra skin drooping over your eyes
  • Major skin creases running across your forehead
  • Sagging brow or forehead skin that causes an anxious, tired, or angry expression

If any of these apply to you, a brow lift may make a good choice. You should understand that different types of procedures are available, including classic or coronal lifts, temporal or limited incision lifts, and endoscopic lifts.

What To Expect

The endoscopic brow lift  involves the placement of small incisions behind the hairline. Your plastic surgeon will use these incisions to remove extra fat and lift and reposition the tissue and muscles in the area.

A temporal or limited incision lift begins with  incisions over the temples and around the hairline. Your plastic surgeon then lifts and repositions tissues , leading to a more youthful appearance.

The classic or coronal type of brow lift involves creating incisions behind the hairline, running from ear to ear. This gives your plastic surgeon access so that they can remove extra fatty deposits, as well as reposition your skin and muscles.

For about one week after your brow lift, you’ll need to avoid vigorous physical activity so that the area has an opportunity to heal correctly. You’ll be provided with detailed instructions on incision care to help guide you while you recover.
