Brow Lift

Brighten your eyes and get rid of that resting ‘angry’ face

The Procedure

A brow lift is a surgical procedure most commonly performed to treat conditions associated with eyebrow position and loose or wrinkled forehead skin, as well as the underlying tissue.

Incisions are usually made in the hairline of the scalp and leave no visible scarring, or is done using lighted cameras underneath the brow to visualize the underlying muscles and tissue. This procedure can create a tighter, smoother appearance of the forehead, while also lifting, and potentially reshaping the eyebrow area.

Results from a surgical Brow Lift are permanent.

Are There Any Alternatives?

If you’d like to avoid going under operation, we also perform non-surgical Brow Lifts using Botox.

Is it Painful?

The procedure itself is not painful since it is performed under local anethetic, but you may experience some swelling and pain for 2-3 days after the procedure.

What is Recovery Like? Is There Downtime or Medication?

You can shower and wash your hair as soon as the day after surgery, however you’ll need to refrain from strenuous activity for 2 weeks.
