Your brows are so vital to your facial expressions that people often cannot recognize images of familiar faces without their eyebrows. These expressive features can begin to sag and droop over your eyes. A brow lift restores your youthful, lifted brows and smooths your forehead to rejuvenate the upper part of your face.
What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift addresses signs of aging around the brows and forehead. This procedure restores the natural arch of your eyebrows, lifting loose skin away from your eyes. This removed the “hooded” appearance of overhanging skin and can help some people see better. A brow lift can be performed alone or with a range of other procedures for maximum results.
*Individual results may vary
How is a Brow Lift Performed?
The technique used to perform your brow lift depends on several factors, including how much loose skin you have. A traditional brow lift uses an incision across the top of your head, hidden within your hairline. This incision is used to tighten loose skin, lifting the brows and smoothing the forehead.
Endoscopic brow lifts have become more common, especially because they allow a faster recovery. This technique uses small incisions to insert tools that work from under the skin to tighten and lift it. Only a consultation can determine which type of brow lift will work best for your needs. Those with significant sagging over the eyes may benefit from a traditional procedure.
What is Recovery Like After a Brow Lift?
Recovery after your brow lift varies depending on the type of procedure and your body’s healing abilities. Most people experience some bruising and swelling in the area that can last for several weeks. People with low-activity jobs can return to work after one to two weeks. Your surgeon will meet with you for follow-up visits and clear you to return to activities like strenuous exercise.
What Results Will I See After a Brow Lift?
Your brow lift results will start to become visible within the first week as the swelling starts to fade. You will notice that your forehead looks smoother, and your brows are lifted and youthful-looking. A brow lift is often combined with an eyelid lift to achieve bright, alert eyes. It can also be combined with a facelift to address the part of the face not lifted by that procedure.
Does Insurance Cover a Brow Lift?
Some brow lifts are partially or entirely covered by insurance. Your brow lift might be covered if your sagging skin obscures your vision. However, not all insurance companies cover this procedure, and coverage levels differ. Consult with your insurance company if you have questions.
