What techniques are involved in Eyebrow Lift surgery?

It is an outpatient surgery and is performed under general anesthesia. The surgery duration depends upon the type of correction required.

Various techniques are employed to correct the eyebrows. The chosen method depends on the cosmetic surgeon; it varies according to the patient's facial anatomy and the expected results of the surgery.

Incision approach involved in Eyebrow Lift surgery:

a. Endoscopic technique

Less invasive, small incisions are made near the headline to reposition tissue and muscles with the help of endoscopic surgical tools. The endoscope (camera-pencil) is inserted into one of the incisions, and it helps the surgeon to view the tissue and muscles on the screen.

b. Limited incision technique

In this method, the incisions are slightly bigger as compared to the endoscopic surgery method. This technique is also performed along with Blepharoplasty surgery. Incisions are made above the temple, and mostly behind the hairline. The incision allows the surgeon to reposition and lift the brow area.

c. Classic brow lift

In this approach, an incision is made posterior to the hairline, starting from one ear to another to reposition the muscles and the underlying tissues.

d. Browpexy

This technique is performed to adjust the brow position through an eyelid incision.

What happens after Eyebrow Lift surgery?

The incisions are closed with absorbable or non-absorbable sutures (that are removed 1-2 weeks after the surgery). The eyes are not bandaged after the surgery, and one can slowly walk around the house and return to their jobs after a week of the surgery.

The patient may experience some tightness, discomfort, pain, bruising, and swelling, for 2 to 3 weeks after surgery. This will subside with proper care and medication. Some hair loss may also occur with an incision and injury to the nerves may occur within the face responsible for raising the brows. Hence, to avoid such complications, one must ensure to consult and undergo surgery from an expert and experienced cosmetic and plastic surgeon, to achieve safe and effective results from any surgical treatment.

What results can I expect after Eyebrow Lift surgery?

  • The final results will appear after a few weeks of the surgery.

  • Life-changing natural results.

  • Improves self-confidence of an individual.

  • It provides a brighter and naturally alert look.

  • Long-lasting results (aging, gravity will eventually change the skin and make it droop again).

  • The surgery result also depends on the individual’s age, facial anatomy, skin type, skin elasticity, and degree of sagging.

  • The incision is hidden under the hairline so that the scarring is virtually undetectable.
