Many people during the pandemic have been feeling the positive and negative effects of lockdown. Whether it is anxiety, depression or even just groggy, we have all been there. Some people have been trying to do whatever they can to make them feel great about themselves again. This could have been anything from doing a 30 minute run in the morning to make you feel fresh or going to the gym after work. Many people have been doing other things a little more surgical, such as looking into eyebrow lifts to help them feel rejuvenated, and to help reduce those lines on their face. If you are thinking about having an eyebrow lift, or have queries about exactly “what is an eyebrow lift”, then this blog is perfect for you. In this blog, we will go through what an eyebrow lift is and what to expect. 


What Is An Eyebrow Lift?

Many people question what is an eyebrow lift and what does it include? Well, an eyebrow lift is a surgical treatment that aims to raise and reposition the brow.  This provides a younger and more natural appearance to your forehead skin, upper eyelids and eyebrows. What an eyebrow lift is doing is making the skin firmer and tighter which reduces the number of visible lines making the skin look and feel much younger and healthier. 

Sagging is just another part of life that everybody has when they age, especially in the face. If the sagging is hiding your facial expression, then an eyebrow lift could be perfect to rejuvenate the upper face which has been tested and perfected. An eyebrow lift can refresh the appearance of the eye area, especially when combined with a blepharoplasty for an all-around rejuvenated look. 

There are many different reasons why people get an eyebrow lift, and the doctors will advise you to consider having one if:

  • Your appearance looks low and depressed due to sagging eyes.
  • You have deep horizontal creases across the forehead.
  • You have frown lines between the eyebrows or across the top of the nose.
  • Fatty tissue hangs from the eyelid


What Eyebrow Lift Variations Are There?

The answer to the question “what is an eyebrow lift” differs between patients, as there are numerous approaches to an eyebrow lift which include:

  • Temporal Brow Lifting: Using an incision behind the hairline which can also be used to lift the outer brow.
  • Direct Brow Lift: Used for very low brows which require an incision above the brow hairline.
  • Internal Browpexy: Performed whilst having blepharoplasty through the same incision.
  • Endoscopic Brow Lift: Keyhole incisions above the brow.


What Is The Difference Between An Eyebrow Lift and Blepharoplasty?

There are two variations of treatments that people get to rejuvenate their face and some get both done at the same time for an all-round look, hence the details of what an eyebrow lift is differs from patient to patient. Many people are torn between which one they should go for but once people understand them both, they usually go for a combination of the two as they prefer a better all-round look. A brow lift will rejuvenate the top half of your face where a blepharoplasty will concentrate on the eyelids which remove excess skin, muscle and fat.
