A brow lift, often referred to as a forehead lift, is a type of cosmetic surgery that is designed to provide a more youthful look to the upper third of your face. As a type of surgery, this can definitely be considered as an invasive procedure. However, depending on your surgeon and the results that you want, there are different techniques that can be employed, with some being less invasive than others.
The surgeon will make one long or several smaller incisions along the hairline in order to reach the affected areas. Smaller incisions may shorten the recovery time and reduce the likelihood of complications, but it takes a skilled surgeon to use these techniques effectively. There are also limitations, with a large incision offering the surgeon more room to work for greater results in many cases.
Regardless of which technique is used by your selected surgeon, you will need to rest and give yourself some time to heal following an eyebrow lift surgery. Swelling and bruising will fade over time. In a few weeks, you should notice a difference in your appearance, but it may take up to a year to see the full results.
