Male brow lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure aimed at elevating the position of the eyebrows and forehead in men. The surgery is personalised for each patient, taking into account their unique facial anatomy.

What is a Male Brow Lift?

Male brow lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure aimed at elevating the position of the eyebrows and forehead in men. This surgical approach addresses concerns such as low-positioned eyebrows and forehead wrinkles. The technique often involves incisions hidden in the natural contours of the forehead or hairline to lift the soft tissues, thereby changing the overall appearance of the upper face while preserving a masculine look.

What to Expect During Your Consultation

Before the male brow lift surgery, you will meet with Dr Richardson to discuss your reasons for wanting the surgery, your treatment options, and the results you hope to achieve. Dr Richardson will also inquire about your medical history and current health status. Generally, patients with low-positioned eyebrows and forehead wrinkles are suitable candidates. In addition, they should be in good health, be non-smokers, and have realistic expectations.

After identifying the suitable surgical techniques for your situation, you will be informed of the expected outcomes of the procedure. If you have any questions, Dr Richardson will provide you with further information and guidance.

The Procedure

This procedure can be performed with either local or general anaesthesia. Incision methods can vary depending on your particular case. You will discuss these with Dr Richardson beforehand to establish which surgical approach will work to produce your desired outcome. Dr Richardson will place the incisions strategically so that your scars will be less noticeable after the area heals. Typically, the procedure takes one to two hours.

Cost of Male Brow Lift Surgery

Fees can vary from patient to patient, based on the details of their procedure. For example, a more extensive procedure may be more costly. Additionally, if you choose to combine your male brow lift with another procedure, this can increase the total fee. When outlining the cost of the surgery, we must consider several factors:

  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Anaesthetist fees
  • Hospital fees
  • Medication

Since every surgery is different, we can give you further information about the fee for the procedure during your first appointment.

  • Keep your head elevated
  • Get plenty of rest
  • Take care of your incision sites
  • Restrict your physical movement
  • Take some time off work to recover

Although timelines can vary, most male brow lift patients can expect the following:

  • Some initial swelling and discomfort in the first 24 to 48 hours.
  • Swelling should mostly subside within one to two weeks.
  • Return to work within two weeks
  • Resume a normal exercise routine after four to six weeks.

Risks and Complications

The procedure involves risks such as:

  • Bleeding and infection
  • Poor healing
  • Ongoing pain and swelling
  • Asymmetry
  • Unwanted results
  • Damage to underlying tissue
  • Visible scars

It is essential to follow your postoperative care instructions to reduce your risks. Taking good care of your body will encourage healing.
