Alternately, Botox injections are commonly used to chemically relax muscles, lifting the brow and decreasing the appearance of forehead wrinkles and frown lines.
A personal consultation with Dr. Priya Kesarwani will help you to decide if your forehead and brows are contributing to a look that could be improved with this procedure. She will explain in detail how a brow lift can enhance your expression and overall appearance.
The Day of the Procedure
In completing a brow lift, patients will want to know the steps that take place on the day of their procedure. This begins with their arrival at our surgical facility. They will be checked in and have their paperwork completed.
The patient will then speak with Dr. Kesarwani about the forthcoming procedure and any concerns they have on the day. Once all questions have been answered, they will finalize the preoperative process and begin the procedure. The brow lift is usually completed under general anesthesia.
The Recovery Phase
In the hours after the procedure has been completed, the patient is then able to go home to continue their recovery and to begin their post-surgery life. In the days after the procedure, the patient may experience some bruising and skin sensitivity. This sensitivity will eventually decrease over the coming days. Within the week, most patients are able to begin normal activities and show their spectacular new look to those around them.

How soon can I wear makeup after a brow lift?
A brow lift procedure is designed to counteract the drooping effect of the brow area that can take place on a person’s face over time. The procedure gives a more youthful appearance and helps minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Soon after the procedure patients want to begin impressing others with their new look, and so a common question we hear is: “How soon can I wear makeup after a brow lift?”
In examining the potential for wearing makeup after a brow lift, it’s important to consider the length of the recovery phase for the procedure. Most patients will be back to work and completing normal activities within one to two weeks of their procedure. The skin on the face tends to heal quite quickly, but still we recommend that brow lift patients wait at least a week before they begin using makeup on the surgical area. That’s not long at all!
