What is a Brow Lift?

Brow lift, forehead lift or ponytail eye lift, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that lifts the eyebrow and especially its lateral border. It gives the patient a more charming and fresh look.

The Procedure

The procedure is performed under General anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. It is performed endoscopically through hidden incisions made behind the hairline.

During this procedure, the skin is released and lifted. The lateral border of the eyebrow is lifted superolaterally. It consists of a part of the procedures known as fox eye, cat eye, and ponytail eye lift.

Procedure can take 1 to 2 hours.

What about the recovery?

Patients will experience discomfort that can be relieved with medication. Two days after the surgery, you should expect bruising & swelling to be at its worst. Sutures are removed 7 days after the surgery and it takes around 1-2 weeks to recover.
