Although our brows’ shapes are determined at birth, through time the brows may fall. This is due to reasons such as the fat tissue under the brow being malformed over time or changes to our bones. Not only does this affect the way we look, it also can cause serious issues such as poor eyesight. Browlift operation is the procedure where these issues are fixed. Browlift is also performed on patients who have had health issues such as facial palsy or injuries due to cuts.

The Process Of Browlift Surgery

This surgery is performed using local anaesthesia or sedation. This depends on certain factors and the patient themselves. If an endoscopic method is to be followed, general anaesthesia is preferred. Tools used may also vary depending on the method chosen. Usually, scalpels are used.

In surgeries where the surgeon follows a direct method over the brow, a superficial incision is made above the brow without harming the hair roots. This way any scarring is camouflaged and no harm is done to the hair and hair loss is avoided. The tissue amount which will be removed is assessed during pre-op examination. Z-plasty technique is used; this technique is administered in order to avoid scarring. Sterilized bandages are put over the incisions. If the endoscopic method is to be followed, the bandages are placed over the forehead area.


Healing process is usually passed without any issues. Patients may follow daily routines which do not require excessive effort. Any swelling passes in about two weeks tops. There may be difficulty with the brow muscles for the first two days but this is temporary. Endoscopic method may cause some loss of feeling over the forehead area. It is important to avoid contact with water over the incision areas; stitches are removed within a week to ten days.
