What to Expect After Brow Lift Surgery

By: Dr. Shoib Myint


The forehead and eyes reveal a lot about your age. You may have problems with deep wrinkles and creases around these areas because of a loss of collagen production over time. If these changes have made a significant impact on your appearance, a brow lift could provide real results. This popular cosmetic surgery tightens loose tissue in the upper part of your face to correct a drooping brow.

Unfortunately, some people do not get the rejuvenating treatments they want because they are concerned about recovery. The great news is that Oculo Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint can successfully guide you through the process. To schedule your brow lift in Beverly Hills, CA or Las Vegas, NV, contact our office for a consultation. Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery can provide wonderful brow rejuvenation results.

Brow lift benefits

Drooping brows, frown lines, and wrinkles can make people appear unnecessarily tired or angry. Brow lift benefits include raising the brow to an elevated position, so you seem more awake and rejuvenated. In many cases, your facial skin also becomes softer and younger-looking. While there are different brow lift techniques to choose from, all treatments involve removing excess skin and tightening the underlying brow tissue. Dr. Myint can let you know whether you qualify during an in-depth assessment.

How brow lift surgery is performed

Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery performs a brow lift in Beverly Hills, CA, and Las Vegas, NV with IV sedation and local anesthesia. The technique we choose is based on the degree of your sagging skin and the desired results. Dr. Myint will make sure that incisions are placed in well-hidden areas, so any scarring is minimal. We then discuss aftercare with you so you are completely prepared for recovery. Most patients will need to rest at home for a few weeks to heal effectively.

Brow lift recovery guidelines

All patients should expect some swelling and inflammation in the upper part of their faces and around the eyes. Our clinic can prescribe pain medications, so you feel more at ease. Following aftercare instructions is essential to the success of your brow lift surgery. We recommend using cool compresses and sleeping upright to reduce discomfort. Avoid strenuous activities or pressing down on your face as this may damage the healing tissue. Here are some other tips to follow while in the recovery stages:

  • Arrange for a responsible relative or friend to help with medications and household chores

  • Keep the treatment area clean and covered at home

  • Do not use any skin care products with exfoliants or harsh chemicals until you have been cleared by Dr. Myint

  • Avoid swimming or submerging your face in water until you attend a follow-up appointment at our office
