Brow Lift Q & A

What is a brow lift?

A brow lift is a surgical procedure that raises your eyebrows and improves the appearance of your forehead. The procedure is often combined with a face-lift or eyelid surgery to achieve the best possible results with only one round of anesthesia. 

Today’s brow lift tools and techniques deliver impressive results and are also incredibly natural-looking. In the hands of a skilled surgeon, a brow lift can leave you looking younger and well-rested. 

What happens during a brow lift?

You’ll receive either general anesthesia or intravenous sedation to help you rest comfortably throughout your procedure. Your Tayani Institute specialist then makes an incision across the top of your head just inside your hairline.

That allows the skin and muscles of your forehead to be lifted and adjusted as needed. Once your surgeon is happy with the placement, any excess skin is removed and the incision is carefully closed.   

A brow lift can also be performed using an endoscope. This is a less invasive procedure that can result in smaller scars and faster recovery time. Your specialist will discuss the best surgical approach for your needs during your consultation. 

What is the recovery process like after a brow lift?

In the days and weeks after your procedure your body will go through a healing process. Your doctor will give you specific advice on how to support healing and prevent complications. 

You’ll need to keep your head elevated and avoid vigorous activity for a while after your procedure. If you have a surgical drain, you may need to take steps to keep the drain clean and clear of blood and other fluids. 

Your doctor will give you a prescription for pain medication and advise you on how often to take those medications. You’ll also receive information on how and when to change your bandages and when to return for a follow-up visit. 

One of the best things you can do to ease the recovery process is to go into surgery in good health. If you’re a smoker, make every effort to quit prior to your procedure. Smoking can impact your circulation and healing ability, making it harder for your body to adapt after surgery.
