How Long Does a Brow Lift Last?

Brow Lift

Do you have naturally low-set eyebrows that have drooped with age, resulting in a permanently tired or angry appearance? Sagging in the brow area and forehead wrinkles are common aging concerns. Fortunately, a brow lift can erase these signs of aging with results that last for years.

What is a Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)?

A brow lift, or a forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgery designed to lift and rejuvenate the eyebrows and forehead region. The procedure involves lifting the skin and underlying tissues of the forehead and eyebrow area to create a smoother, more youthful appearance. This can help to improve the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin on the forehead and between the eyebrows, as well as to reduce frown lines and crow’s feet.

How Does a Brow Lift Work?

Different techniques for performing a brow lift include the traditional open or coronal method, the endoscopic technique, and the temporal or lateral technique. Dr. Coville typically performs customized endoscopic or lateral brow lifts depending on the patient’s needs and goals. 

An endoscopic or lateral brow lift requires small incisions (an inch long or less) hidden within the hairline. Dr. Coville will lift and tighten the skin and tissues through these incisions. He performs brow lifts on an outpatient basis at Cornerstone Plastic Surgery.

Brow Lift Results

You’ll notice an immediate improvement in your forehead after the procedure. Swelling and bruising can obscure results, and your eyebrows may appear higher than usual. These side effects should subside within a few weeks, and your brow will settle into position. Your final results will be visible after six months.

A brow lift offers long-lasting rejuvenation. The exact results depend on your specific procedure, with more invasive procedures typically having longer-lasting results—generally, the benefits of a brow lift last several years or even a lifetime. However, your skin will continue to age, so this can fade your results over time.

How Long is Recovery After a Brow Lift?

Your recovery time will depend on your specific type of forehead lift. You can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort after a brow lift. Some temporary numbness is also likely. Most visible swelling and bruising should fade within three weeks, and patients often return to work within ten days.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Brow Lift?

If your eyebrows have become droopy with age or you have forehead wrinkles and sagging, a brow lift may be an effective solution to rejuvenate your appearance. Since Dr. Coville can customize multiple types of brow lift procedures to your needs, this surgery can benefit many aging concerns. You can also have a brow lift combined with other facial surgeries, such as a facelift or eyelid lift.
