An eyebrow lift is a procedure that can reduce the appearance of frown lines and other facial wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. While there are minimally invasive treatments that can achieve temporary results, an eyebrow lift generally refers to a surgical procedure that involves incisions and recovery times. Brow lifts are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in the United States, and can take years off of a person’s appearance.
An eyebrow lift or brow contour procedure is performed to enhance a person’s facial shape and contour. The surgery can improve the shape of your eyes, enhance the structure of your eyebrows, and increase your overall facial appearance by reducing the appearance of forehead wrinkles and achieving a firmer, more youthful complexion. An eyebrow lift is performed under general anesthesia, which renders the patient unconscious. During which time, the incision is made in the skin in a specific location on the face, and excess skin is lifted and tucked into place. The incision is then closed using a suture or surgical glue.
An eyebrow lift, sometimes referred to as a forehead lift or forehead rejuvenation, is a type of a cosmetic surgical procedure that is designed to lift the brows. For most patients, the results of an eyebrow lift normally last around 10 to 15 years. Unlike Botox or other non-invasive procedures, a brow lift will not “wear off”; the only thing affecting the results is the inevitable natural aging process.
Furthermore, by lifting the soft tissue and skin of your forehead and brow, an eyebrow lift can offer your face a more youthful appearance. However, it is important to note that the effects of eyebrow lift surgery will not stay indefinitely; with age, the facial skin may begin to droop again.
According to 2020 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a brow lift is $3,900. This average cost is only a portion of the total cost; anesthesia, operating room facilities, and other related expenses are not included. To determine your final fee, please contact your plastic surgeon’s office.
The fee for brow lift surgery will be determined by the surgeon’s experience, the type of procedure used, and the geographic location of the office.
Most health insurance plans do not cover brow lift surgery or its complications; however, many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans; be sure to inquire.
Brow lift costs may include:
– Anesthesia fees
– Hospital or surgical facility costs
– Medical tests
– Post-surgery garments
– Prescriptions for medication
– Surgeon’s fee
The age at which a person decides to get a brow lift is a highly personal decision, especially given that we all age at vastly different rates. Brow lift surgery and other facial lifting procedures are typically performed on patients aged 40 to 70, but this is not a hard and fast rule.
Many people wait until they notice significant sagging and wrinkling before undergoing any type of facial cosmetic surgery with the goal of anti-aging, but having a procedure done before too much aging has occurred can allow for a more subtle, natural result.
