Brow Lift / Brow Ptosis Repair

A Brow lift is also called brow ptosis repair and helps to elevate the eyebrow for a heightened and more open eye. This can be done as a stand-alone surgery or in combination with blepharoplasty surgery to restore the brow’s natural shape and arch in both men and women.


A brow lift can be done using different techniques and varies from patient to patient. A lateral brow lift can help re-elevate the corners of the brow through an incision made through the eyelid. This is referred to as an internal brow pexy and is helpful for mild brow ptosis at the time of blepharoplasty surgery. It is a minimally invasive approach through the same incision as the blepharoplasty so there is no additional downtime. The drawback is that it is not always effective because it is minimally invasive. A direct brow lift can be a powerful and effective alternative to remove skin externally with a scar along the upper brow line. The scar is usually very light but in patients with thin brow hair, it can be noticeable. The effects of direct brow surgery are long-lasting and effective.

Alternatively, this procedure can be done endoscopically through small channels created at specific points or directly above the brow. It will help reduce the amount of excess skin on the upper eyelid by elevating the area. The technique and approach used will depend on the clinical presentation of the patient.

Recovery following a brow lift varies from patient to patient depending on the technique used. There is no additional healing time when a brow pexy is performed at the time of blepharoplasty.

Bruising and swelling are common after brow lifts. Icing 10 min every hour while awake for the first 48 hours and sleeping with 2-3 pillows for the first week will help reduce swelling. Strenuous exercise, heavy lifting or sexual intercourse should be avoided for 2 weeks. Stitches are removed 7-10 days after the procedure when used.


This will help elevate the eyebrows for a more refreshed, open look. It will also improve the hooding on the upper eyelids. It can be used to help improve symmetry between the two brows.

A brow lift can be done alone or in combination with other facial procedures such as blepharoplasty.
