A brow lift restores a youthful fresh appearance to the upper face. This procedure can improve wrinkles, raise sagging eyebrows, and reduce upper eyelid hooding, resulting in a more refreshed appearance.
There are many different ways to perform a brow lift. Brow lift techniques vary depending on your desired results. The specific technique your surgeon chooses will determine the location of the incisions and the resulting scars.
This procedure is often carried out in conjunction with other facial surgeries such as blepharoplasty or face lift for optimal results.
Before any surgery is performed a consultation with Mr Kambiz Golchin is required. This consultation will likely be a discussion including a full medical history and exam if necessary. A medication review and facial assessment will also be done on the day. Mr Golchin will answer any questions you may have during the consultation and will explain the procedure in greater details and what to expect before and after the procedure.
An eyebrow lift restores a youthful, fresh appearance to the upper face following years of ageing. Brow lift surgery can improve deep set wrinkles, raise heavy, sagging eyebrows, and reduce upper eyelid hooding, rejuvenating the area around the eyes.
There are many different ways to perform a brow lift. Techniques vary depending on your desired results. The specific eyebrow lift technique your surgeon chooses, such as endoscopic brow lift, will determine where they place their incisions and the resulting scars.
Brow lift treatment is often carried out in conjunction with other facial plastic surgeries such as facelift or blepharoplasty, for a more natural, balanced result. Correcting brow asymmetry and removing excess eyelid skin, as well as correcting brow position, are procedures anyone can undertake, men and women.
Eyebrow lift consultation
Before any procedure is performed, every eyebrow surgery candidate must have a consultation with Mr Kambiz Golchin, the consultant plastic surgeon. This is to determine your precise needs and desired outcomes. It will likely be a discussion involving a full medical history and eyebrow exam as necessary. A medication review and facial assessment will also be done on the day.
Your plastic surgeon will answer all and any questions you may have during the consultation, as well as explaining the surgery in greater detail, including what to expect before and after the procedure. Mr Golchin will also explain other procedures that might be suitable in order to help you maximise your facial rejuvenation treatment, to restore your face and neck to a beautiful, natural looking appearance.
How much does a brow lift cost?
Each plastic surgery procedure that we carry out at Beacon Face and Dermatology is bespoke to each patient. We don’t have a standard price list because your brow treatment is tailored to meet your specific needs.
Before you undergo any treatment options, you will have a full consultation and these fees are included in the cost of the brow lift procedure, contributing towards the overall surgery cost. As well as paying for the procedure, the cost of your eyebrow surgery will also include pre- and post-operative care, including your hospital stay and the general anaesthetic.
If you’ve opted for any other procedures to restore your face and neck to a more youthful appearance, these will be priced separately. There are a full spectrum of cosmetic surgeries on offer at our Dublin clinic, including a neck lift, eyelid surgery, implants in the cheeks and face lift, to name but a few.
What does an eyebrow lift do?
Before you undergo any anti-ageing treatments, you will have a full consultation with consultant plastic surgeon, Mr Kambiz Golchin. He’ll explain your specific eyebrow lift surgery in greater detail, including ascertaining your preferred brow shape.
The type of eyebrow surgery that you opt for will require Mr Golchin to adopt a different technique. But usually, during the brow lift procedure, if you’ve opted for an endoscopic brow lift, for example, Mr Golchin will make a series of small incisions along your hairline and will use an endoscope to view the area in greater detail. He will lift the skin of the forehead, reposition the eyebrows and remove any muscle tissue that is causing unwanted facial lines. If necessary, he will also remove any excess skin, reposition any fat or remove it, before suturing the incision closed.
What to expect after surgery?
Eyebrow lifts are carried out under general anaesthetic, but it is an outpatient procedure, meaning you will typically be allowed to go home the same day as you have your surgery.
You can expect to experience bruising and swelling in the days following the procedure, but this should calm down after about 10 days. To aid the swelling, we recommend applying cool compresses to the affected area and keeping the head elevated for the first few weeks. You may experience numbness in the forehead as the incisions heal, but this should reduce over time. It’s not uncommon for numbness to remain for 6-12 months in some cases.
How long does an eyebrow lift last?
Brow lift surgery is a procedure that is most frequently carried out on patients 40+ years old. It involves the surgeon making several incisions along the hairline and lifting the forehead skin up, to raise the eyebrows. After the forehead lift, the brows are repositioned to give you an incredibly natural, youthful appearance.
Having brow lifts surgery is a serious undertaking, but the procedure can result in a fresh-faced look for years to come. How old you are when you have eyebrows done and what, if any, other complementary surgeries you have at the same time, will determine how long the outcome of your surgery will last.
Eyebrow surgery can not prevent the natural ageing process from occurring. However, what it can do is slow the onset of the appearance of ageing. So while you can enjoy a youthful, tighter, complexion in the years following the procedure, as you continue to age, you will still appear younger than those of a similar age.
Mr Golchin will explain to you thoroughly, during your brow lift consultation, what you can expect to happen in the years proceeding your brow lift surgery.
Is a brow lift permanent?
Following a brow lift, the results are almost instantly visible. As swelling reduces and scarring fades, your fresh complexion will become ever more apparent. With the final results being most notable in the months following the procedure. Depending on the type of surgery you opt for, will depend on the end results. If you prefer to have minimally invasive surgery, you will see limited results compared to more invasive approaches.
Gravity and the ageing process will continue to affect the brow area, however, it will only show minimally because having your brows lifted provides a permanent solution. While it can’t prohibit the natural ageing process from occurring, nor can it reverse the ageing process, it can slow it down, so that your face will show signs of ageing much less so than people who haven’t opted for brow lift surgery.
To maximise your brow lift, you should do what you can to minimise further skin damage. Stay out of the sun, apply high SPF sunscreen, drink plenty of water, eat healthily and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
