During a brow elevator, we elevator drooping eyebrows by removing excess skin above the brows. As you age, the skin on your forehead may sag, causing the position of your eyebrows to become lower. This can lead to decreased vision and feeling tired. In addition, drooping eyebrows give the face a tired appearance and an aged look. An eyebrow elevator provides the solution to these complaints and restores your youthful and natural appearance.

The treatment process
What is the treatment process for an eyebrow elevator?
4 – 7 days
Tijdens het consult vraagt de plastisch chirurg u naar uw wensen en verwachtingen. Naar aanleiding hiervan zullen de mogelijkheden worden besproken. Samen bepaalt u welke behandelmethode voor u het meest geschikt is. Uw plastisch chirurg geeft tijdens dit gesprek uitgebreid uitleg, brengt de eventuele risico’s en complicaties in kaart en hij laat u zien welke resultaten u kunt verwachten. Ook wordt het verschil tussen een wenkbrauwlift en een endoscopische wenkbrauwlift uitgelegd. Het kan zijn dat de plastisch chirurg een wenkbrauwlift in combinatie met een bovenooglidcorrectie adviseert voor een nog beter resultaat. Bij Blooming Plastische Chirurgie krijgt u altijd een eerlijk advies en duidelijke voorlichtingen over het behandeltraject. Zo weet u wat u kunt verwachten en komt u niet voor verrassingen te staan.
A 100 euro consultation fee is charged for a consultation. These will be deducted from the final price of the treatment.
For optimal results, we also sometimes combine a brow elevator with an eyelid correction. An eyebrow elevator can be performed through various methods. Depending on your symptoms and wishes, we determine which treatment method offers the best results for you.
In a direct eyebrow elevator, the plastic surgeon removes a strip of skin just above the eyebrows. As we reattach the skin neatly, the eyebrows are lifted up. Because this technique leaves a small scar just above the eyebrow, we perform this procedure mostly on middle-aged men. This is because they generally have more skin folds in the forehead, so we drop the scar into them. Virtually nothing is visible from the procedure. A direct brow elevator also offers the solution if you prefer not to undergo extensive surgery.A direct brow elevator usually takes place under local anesthesia.
The lateral brow elevator is particularly appropriate when the eyebrows have drooped on the outside. In this method, the surgeon makes two small incisions just in front of or behind the hairline in order to remove excess skin. This elevators the eyebrows, restoring a natural and fresh look to your eyes. Prior to the treatment, the plastic surgeon marks the area of skin to be removed. The procedure takes a maximum of one hour. Your attending plastic surgeon will determine, depending on the treatment procedure, whether the eyebrow elevator will be performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia.
With the various treatment methods, you can almost always return home immediately. However, you will not be allowed to drive yourself. So make sure that someone accompanies you to take you home afterwards.
Most clients do not experience a brow elevator as painful. If the brow elevator is performed under local anesthesia, you may go home shortly after treatment. Is the treatment performed under anesthesia? Then you will stay in the hospital for several hours. After the eyebrow elevator, you may experience headaches and the treated area may be somewhat blue and swollen. In addition, it is possible that the eyebrows may be a little high at first. These will drop back to their normal position within a few weeks.
For proper recovery, you should protect your scar from UV radiation. It is advisable to lubricate the scar with a scar cream. Ask your plastic surgeon for advice.
It is important that you are aware of the risks and complications associated with a brow elevator. Although the chances of complications are small, it is still possible that you may encounter them. The rare risks you face with brow lift surgery are:
- Post-bleeding or wound infection
- Allergic reaction to the anesthetics
- Asymmetry and fluid accumulation around the eyes
- Temporary numbness of the treated skin
- Formation of severely thickened scars
- Dissatisfied with the aesthetic result
Scars are red and swollen at first, but this usually lessens after six weeks. Keep in mind that a scar takes about a year to a year and a half to reach a final stage. Keep scars out of the sun and care for them with a scar cream. At our clinic, we use Staudt scar cream.
Stop smoking at least six weeks before to six weeks after treatment. Smoking constricts blood vessels, which can cause problems with wound healing. The risk of subsequent bleeding is reduced once you stop smoking.
