Some individuals naturally have low eyebrows, while others experience eyebrow drooping over the years. Whatever your situation may be, an eyebrow lift can elevate sagging eyebrows, giving you a more open and refreshed appearance.
In many cases, an eyebrow lift is combined with an upper eyelid surgery for optimal results. An eyebrow lift is a specialized procedure that involves various techniques. During a consultation, the cosmetic surgeon at Ageworth will advise on the most suitable technique for you. At Ageworth, an eyebrow lift is always tailored to your specific needs, ensuring the best possible outcome.
An eyebrow lift at Ageworth always begins with a personal consultation. One of our surgeons will discuss your goals, desires, and needs prior to the procedure. Sometimes, you may come in seeking an eyebrow lift, but based on your situation, the surgeon may determine that an eyelid correction is a better option. During the consultation, we provide honest and knowledgeable advice, combining our expertise with your desires to create a treatment plan. If you agree with the treatment plan, the procedure can be scheduled, optionally immediately after the consultation.
Every treatment starts with thorough cleansing and disinfection of the skin. The skin of the eyebrows is then numbed using small injections. You may feel the injections, but they are not painful. After numbing, the cosmetic surgeon marks the areas of skin to be removed based on the treatment plan. The excess skin is then carefully excised, utilizing the chosen technique. The final step involves suturing the incision with fine stitches and applying small adhesive plasters to the skin. After a brief rest period and an explanation of all aftercare instructions, you can return home. Please note that you are not allowed to drive after an eyebrow lift, so plan your transportation accordingly. An eyebrow lift typically takes around 45 minutes (including the consultation).
The skin may be sensitive, swollen, and bruised for up to a week after the eyebrow lift. After one week, the stitches will be removed during a follow-up appointment at the clinic. Be cautious with makeup application following an eyebrow lift. Avoid wearing makeup for the first two weeks after the treatment and refrain from rubbing the area. Avoid visiting the gym, tanning beds, or saunas for the first two weeks after the treatment. Applying a nourishing scar cream can help expedite the skin’s recovery after an eyebrow lift.
The results of an eyebrow lift become noticeable after two to three months. On average, you can enjoy the benefits of an eyebrow lift for ten to fifteen years. The duration of the effect varies per individual and depends on factors such as genetic predisposition, skin type, and lifestyle.
