Browplasty (Brow Lift)

A procedure designed to elevate the brows and reduce the signs of ageing.

A browplasty (brow lift) procedure can diminish the visibility of wrinkles. The purpose of a brow lift is to give more definition to the shape and position of the eyebrows and help correct the view of wrinkles on the forehead as well as the upper eyelid skin. Some procedures that are often performed in conjunction with the browplasty (brow lift) are meloplasty (facelift) and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). Our surgeons are qualified in performing a range of browplasty (brow lift) techniques, including traditional open browplasty (brow lift), minimal incision lateral browplasty (brow lift) and endoscopic browplasty (brow lift) techniques.



General anaesthetic


Outpatient day surgery

Length of surgery

60 -90 minutes


Most patients are back to work in approximately 10 – 14 days when swelling and bruising resolves. We advise our patients to avoid strenuous activity for 1 month. Recovery will be longer if the brow lift is done as a part of blepharoplast (eyelid surgery) or meloplasty (facelift)


Final results are seen 3 months, and the duration of those results vary from one person to another due to the quality of their skin, ageing and weight changes, but typically expect results to last 10 years.

What Can Browplasty (Brow Lift) Do For You?

A browplasty (brow lift) can elevate the brows into a preferred position and aid in reducing the signs of ageing.

Below is a list of some benefits that arise from the browplasty (brow lift) procedure:

  • Elevate a brow
  • Improve horizontal forehead wrinkles
  • Reposition and create a more sculpted arched brow
  • Improve brow symmetry
  • Reduce excess upper eyelid skin by repairing brow ptosis

Are You An Ideal Candidate?

Men and women in good health aged between 40 – 60 years old who have developed furrows or wrinkles and a low or sagging brow are suitable candidates for this procedure.

A browplasty (brow lift) is also ideal for those who have vision problems because of the obstruction caused by lower brow and excessive upper eyelid laxity. To help correct this, a browplasty (brow lift) is often done with blepharoplasty.

Risks Associated With The Browplasty (Brow Lift) Procedure

As for any surgical procedure, it is important to have a prior consultation with your surgeon about the process, expectations, options, browplasty (brow lift) techniques available and possible complications. Your surgeon will take routine photographs in the course of examination.

For the browplasty (brow lift), our surgeons will assess different individual aspects of your face, including hairline position, eyebrow shape and symmetry, skin quality, eyelids position (skin and fat component), underlying muscle activity and the bone structure. This is important to gain an understanding whether the procedure is right for you and how the techniques may be tailored to achieve your goals.
