List of Potential Risks

Brow lift may potentially lead to the following post-operative complications in rare cases:

  • Bacterial infection
  • Poor reaction to anesthesia
  • Hair loss at incision site
  • Stiff forehead muscles or brows
  • Unfavorable scarring
  • Nerve damage (temporary or permanent)
  • Facial or brow asymmetry
  • Numbness or other skin sensation changes
  • Slow wound healing
  • Hair loss at the incision site
  • Hair loss at the eyelashes
  • Raised, higher hairline
  • Loss of skin
  • Eye irritation or dryness
  • Eyelid disorders
  • Irregular skin contour
  • Skin discoloration
  • Visible or irritated sutures
  • Dissatisfaction with the aesthetic outcome
  • Need for revision surgery
  • Deep vein thrombosis

Side Effects

Brow lift cosmetic surgery is likely to create a few side effects that will mostly subside within a few days. In any case, the side effects are minimal in case of an endoscopic brow lift. The typical post-surgical side effects of brow lift include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Tingling
  • Numbness
  • Pain or general discomfort
  • Tiredness
  • Itching

Mild swelling may last for a few weeks, but will usually require no special treatment. Patients should use ice therapy in the first 48 hours after the surgery in order to minimize the swelling.

Risk Mitigation

Before undergoing brow lift surgery, the patient will meet with a qualified surgeon to determine whether they are a suitable candidate, and which brow lift technique is right for their specific case. Patients should ideally choose a board certified plastic surgeon for brow lift.

These surgeons typically adopt cutting edge surgical techniques, follow the best medical practices and standards, pursue continuing education, and adhere to the latest safety protocols. The patient should also be committed to following the surgeon’s pre- and post-operative care instructions in order to minimize their risk of complications.

If the patient is a smoker, they should be particularly careful about avoiding smoking for a few weeks before and after the surgery as advised by the surgeon. Patients with a history of blood clotting or raised scars should also share this information with the surgeon.
