Say Goodbye To Droopy Eyebrows With a Brow Lift

By: Dr. Shoib Myint


It’s no secret that the eyes are one of the most prominent, memorable, and important features of a person’s face. When men and women have bright, open, sparkling eyes, they often appear happier and more approachable. However, when the forehead and brow begin to sag – which is a common symptom of aging – the eyelids and eyebrows often become droopy and lead to a tired, worn out, or even angry expression. Plastic surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint and the expert team at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery are proud to offer brow lift surgery to help patients in Las Vegas, NV and Beverly Hills, CA raise their brow, open up their eyes, and restore a more youthful look. Learn more about the benefits of brow lift surgery here, including how to tell if the procedure may be right for you.


What does an eyebrow lift do?

Brow lift surgery is an exciting cosmetic procedure designed to refresh and rejuvenate a patient’s look by raising the natural browline. A common misconception is that brow lift is only beneficial for raising the eyebrows themselves. While lifting droopy eyebrows is certainly a distinct advantage of the procedure, brow lift can also address a number of other concerns, including:


  • Sagging eyebrows
  • Drooping brow
  • Deep brow lines
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Brow asymmetry
  • Hooded eyes
  • Excess upper eyelid skin
  • Tired, angry, or old appearance overall


During your initial consultation for brow lift in Beverly Hills or Las Vegas, Dr. Myint will thoroughly evaluate your areas of concern, discuss your specific goals, and answer all of your questions at length before recommending a custom-tailored surgical plan that can best help you achieve your ideal outcome. In some cases, patients may benefit by combining brow lift with additional procedures or treatments to further enhance their results, including blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and injectables.


How does brow lift work?

Brow lift, which typically takes about 1 – 2 hours, can be performed using several different surgical approaches. The precise method used during brow lift surgery will depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of the concerns, the patient’s hairline, and others. The primary difference between each type of brow lift is the kind of incision that is used. For some patients, a less invasive endoscopic approach, using multiple small incisions at the hairline, may be appropriate, while others may require a lengthier horizontal incision beyond the hairline – known as the trichophytic approach.


Once the surgeon has made his incisions, he will reposition, tighten, and reinforce the underlying muscles and other structures for a more lifted, youthful look. The skin will then be re-draped over the newly improved brow, and excess skin may be removed, if necessary, before closing the incision(s) with dissolvable sutures or staples.


Will my eyebrows be higher after brow lift?

The goal of brow lift surgery is to restore a more youthful, awake appearance that is also very natural-looking. Dr. Myint is exceptionally skilled in the techniques necessary for achieving appropriate, stunning results that accentuate a patient’s natural beauty and features. By lifting drooping eyebrows subtly, patients can enjoy a striking look that does not appear overly tight or “plastic.”


How long is recovery after brow lift surgery?

Most patients choose to take about 7 – 10 days off of work after brow lift surgery to let their postoperative symptoms, including bruising, swelling, and discomfort, subside. Patients who undergo endoscopic brow lift typically have an even shorter recovery period and may return to work sooner. While you will likely feel much more like yourself after the first week, it is important to continue to follow your surgeon’s guidelines closely, which may include refraining from exercise and other strenuous activities. You should notice an immediately enhanced look after surgery, and your results will continue to improve in the coming weeks and months as the swelling fully resolves and the tissues settle into place.


How long does brow lift last?

Like any other cosmetic procedure, brow lift, unfortunately, cannot stop the aging process altogether. Patients should keep in mind that gravity, sun exposure, aging, and other factors can affect their results over time. However, the vast majority of brow lift patients can enjoy their results for many, many years before a revision or touch-up may be needed. In the meantime, patients often choose to use injectables and other nonsurgical treatments to maintain and prolong their youthful look.
