Brow Lift/ Brow Contouring Surgery

Brow lifting or Brow Contouring is one of an important part of the Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS).    Brow lift or Brow Contouring or Brow Bossing Surgery is to provide a more feminine expression, once the frontal bone has been remodeled.

Brow lift surgery, also referred to as eyebrow lift, allows plastic surgery patients to achieve a younger, more refreshed look by smoothing the forehead and elevating the position of the eyebrow line. Brow lift involves a relatively short recovery process and patients usually experience minimal discomfort.

The patient who already has a long forehead and is in need of a brow lift? Long foreheads can be shortened by forehead skin removal (Lower Hairline Surgery) and bringing the scalp flap forward.  This can be done at the same time as a brow lift, brow contouring or brow bossing.  The answer is yes.

The surgical Procedure

Brow Lift or Bone Contouring typically is performed to contour to a receding forehead.

Since surgery is performed through an internal incision, the patient has no visible scarring.

Postoperative Recovery – Brow lift, Brow Contouring and Brow Bossing Surgery

After brow lift/ brow contouring or brow bossing surgery, it is important to keep the head elevated for several days in order to minimize postoperative swelling. Some numbness and temporary discomfort may persist around the incision for several days, but this can be controlled with pain medication. The bruising and swelling that does occur will usually subside considerably in the first week. Bandages will come off a day or two after brow lift surgery. Stitches from the surgery are removed during the first two weeks, though this varies from patient to patient.

Normal work can be resumed 7 to 10 days after a brow lift procedure, though recovery from endoscopic brow lift surgery may take even less time. You should be able to shower and wash your hair a few days after the bandages come off. However, vigorous activity should be limited for several weeks, including jogging, bending, sex, or any activity that increases your blood pressure.

Most of the visible signs of brow lift surgery should disappear within a few weeks, and minor swelling and bruising can usually be hidden with makeup. Do not worry if you feel a bit tired and let down at first, as your body heals itself and you begin to look better, you will feel better as well. Patients are usually very satisfied with their new look once their surgery site has completely healed. Patients often do not realize just how much their sagging brow contributed to an older appearance until they see their new, refreshed look.

Treatment after surgery during the first 7 days of Brow Lift:

- Removing Incisions within 5 days after surgery.

- No heavy exercise 2 weeks after surgery

- Scars are usually well hidden and normally fade in time

- Swelling and bruising can be minimized by keeping the head elevated as much as possible during the first few days of recovery

FAQs for Brow Lift

How long is the recovery?

Patients can typically return to their normal daily routines about seven to ten days following the Brow Lift procedure. During recovery, the patient must keep his or her head elevated for the first few days. Medication can help with any pain or soreness. Within a week after the Brow Lift surgery, the stitches are removed.

What type of surgeon should perform my procedure?

The ideal type of physician for brow lift is an ophthalmic plastic surgeon. This type of doctor is certified by the American Board of Plastic or Thai Board of Plastic and is specially trained in plastic surgery of the facial surgeries and surrounding structures of the face. General cosmetic surgeons do not undergo such specialized training in plastic surgery of the brow Lift.



All surgery carries risks – But can minimize by closely following your surgeon’s advice on follow up care during the healing process.
