The Lancaster General Health Experience
What to expect before, during and after a brow lift
Our cosmetic surgeons perform the endoscopic brow lift, using a special viewing instrument to see the surgical area while only making small incisions at the temples and behind the hairline.
Before surgery, your care team will provide you with instructions on how to prepare for your brow lift, including any foods, drinks and medications to avoid. They will also share individualized after-care instructions to help speed up your recovery.
Even though brow lifts are an outpatient procedure, they require anesthesia. This means you will need transportation home. Your care team will provide instructions on how to care for your surgical site and advise on potential complications. You will need to sleep in an elevated position for a few days after surgery. Most swelling or bruising should subside in two to three weeks.
Brow lift cost
Depending on your specific treatment goals and other services you may also undergo, brow lift cost varies. We will discuss the cost during your consultation.
Brow lift risks
As with any surgery, brow lifts can pose complications like infection. You can prevent complications by following your pre- and post-surgery instructions.
Risks associated with brow lifts include:
- Hair loss around the scars
- Large scars (rare)
- Inability to raise the eyebrows or furrow the brow
- Temporary forehead numbness that resolves on its own
In nearly all cases, these issues resolve on their own. Your care team is available through every step of the recovery process to answer your questions and concerns.
