What is Eyebrow Lift Surgery?

Eyebrow lift surgery, also known as a brow lift or forehead lift, is a cosmetic procedure designed to elevate and rejuvenate the appearance of the eyebrows and forehead area. This surgical technique addresses various concerns, including sagging eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and drooping skin that can contribute to a tired or aged look. During an eyebrow lift surgery, the surgeon makes incisions typically within the hairline or along the brow, and then lifts and repositions the underlying tissues and muscles. This results in a more youthful and elevated eyebrow position, smoothing out forehead wrinkles and creating a more refreshed appearance. Additionally, the procedure can help open up the eyes, enhance symmetry, and restore a more harmonious balance to the upper face. Eyebrow lift surgery is highly customizable, with different techniques available depending on individual needs and desired outcomes. By consulting with a skilled plastic surgeon, patients can discuss their concerns, explore available options, and determine the most suitable approach to achieve natural-looking and satisfying results.

Eyebrow lift: All you need to know

When you look in the mirror, your face should reflect the correct impression of your feelings. The eyes and forehead play a major role in delivering our emotions. However, with the aging process, you begin to notice that the eyebrow line has drooped, your eyelids sag, your gaze has become heavy and the general expression of your face looks gloomy. This gives the face a tired, angry, or perpetually dissatisfied look.

Go to the mirror and try to slightly pull up the skin. Have you noticed how the eyes have changed, the eyelids have stopped hanging, and the face has acquired a more optimistic expression? So, if you wish for that look to be permanent, maybe it is time to think about eyebrow lift surgery.

According to global studies on cosmetic surgery, Iran has accomplished major strides in terms of its reputation in cosmetic and plastic surgeries as Iranian plastic surgeons became much more experienced and kept themselves updated on the global level.

What is eyebrow lift surgery?

Generally speaking, eyebrow lift surgery is aimed at upper face rejuvenation. Whether you are born with heavy brows and “hooded eyes” or the process of aging has affected your appearance, causing your forehead skin to lose its elasticity, leading to wrinkles, furrows, frown lines, and sagging skin, an eyebrow lift will fix them all.

Typically, the need for this operation occurs in patients over 35 years of age (forehead and eyebrow lift surgeries are popular not only among women but also among men).

How is a brow lift surgery performed?

The brow lift procedure starts with a consultation held between you and the surgeon before the surgery. The surgeon examines your face to check your skin type, skin laxity, and degree of brow sagging. Also, he/she inquires about your expectations of the surgery.

Then, depending on the case at hand, the surgeon would decide whether to go through with a surgical or non-surgical eyebrow lift.

In the following, we will elaborate on the differences between these two types.

Surgical Vs. non-surgical eyebrow lift

Non-surgical brow lift uses a combination of wrinkle reducers, to rejuvenate the appearance of the forehead and eyebrow line.

It is quick, easy, and relatively harmless. There is absolutely no scarring but the effects of these injectable treatments are not permanent and do require reinjection to maintain results.

On the other hand, individuals experiencing skin laxity may not be good candidates for the non-surgical eyebrow lift. They would likely be better served by undergoing a surgical eyebrow lift.

This type provides the most extensive degree of improvement and longest-lasting outcome when compared to non-surgical methods.

As the case for any surgery, the surgical eyebrow lift has potential complications and side effects such as pain, swelling, bruising, and scarring. The good news is that these symptoms should resolve relatively quickly for most patients.

What happens during a surgical eyebrow lift?

Your surgeon will make the necessary incision(s) behind your hairline across the top of your head, from ear to ear, or mainly on the top of your head. Then he/she pulls the skin up and removes the excess skin. When the surgery is completed, the surgeon uses sutures or skin adhesives to close the incision.
