A browlift can lift your eyebrows
With time, the brow can become lower. This can cause an excess of skin at the outside of the eyes. A brow lift can lift the eyebrows and reduce the skin excess.
Some women prefer to have their eyebrows in a higher position or to change the shape of their eyebrows. So a brow lift can also be used for this purpose.
How is a browlift performed?
Dr Szalay will carefully make an incision along the hairline. Sometimes he uses sutures to lift the eyebrows whilst sometimes he will lift the brows with skin removal. Dr Szalay has performed over 300 browlift procedures.
How long does it take to recover from a browlift?
Following the procedure you will be given a compression bandage to wear for 4 hours.
If Dr Szalay has used suspension sutures as part of your procedure you may experience pain and we give you a script for pain relief medication to help with this.
You may experience some bruising and swelling but most people are able to return to work ten days following the procedure.
Dr Szalay will discuss what to expect during your recovery as part of your consultation and we will provide you with detailed pre and post operative instructions.
A detailed list of pre and post operative instructions is here.
Will I need eyelid surgery as well?
Some patients just choose a brow lift, whilst others may choose to undergo a brow lift as well as eyelid surgery if they are wishing to reduce excess eyelid skin. Dr Szalay can help you make this choice during your consultation.
The initial consultation with Dr Szalay is $75.00. The cost of the browlift ranges from $3300 to $4400, depending on the complexity. The price is discounted when eyelid surgery is also performed.
