Eyebrow correction

As a result of aging and genetic predisposition, the skin of the eyebrows can become looser and press on the upper eyelid. This can give you a tired or sullen appearance, which can be disturbing because you don't feel that way at all. An eyebrow correction may offer a solution in this case!

An eyebrow correction of sagging eyebrows can be done using different methods: an eyebrow suspension and an eyebrow lift. In some cases an endoscopic forehead lift or traditional forehead lift necessary. An eyebrow correction is often combined with an eyelid correction.

Eyebrow suspension

In the case of drooping upper eyelids, the root of the problem is often also in the eyebrows that drop, especially on the outsides of the eyebrows. In addition, there may also be an excess of stretched upper eyelid skin. So with an adequate procedure you have to do something about both the upper eyelids and the sagging eyebrows. This can be done by performing an eyelid correction in combination with an eyebrow suspension.

With an eyebrow suspension, the outer corner of the eyebrow is secured to the eyebrow bone with a stitch through the incision made in the upper eyelid. An eyebrow suspension is a fairly simple procedure and takes place under local anesthesia. The procedure takes about 45 minutes (in combination with the eyelid correction) and is performed as an outpatient procedure.

Eyebrow Lift

With the eyebrow lift, the plastic surgeon makes small incisions into the skin creases above the eyebrows. This enables the plastic surgeon to remove the excess skin so the eyebrows are lifted and attached with a dissolvable suture. This method is suitable for people who already have deeper skin creases above the eyebrows as this is where the scar will be. People who do not have these deeper skin creases are not suitable candidates for this procedure as the scar will become too noticeable and the endoscopic forehead lift is a better option.

Eyebrow lift in combination with eyelid correction

An eyebrow lift is often combined with a correction of the eyelids. The eyebrow lift takes approximately 45 minutes and takes place under local anesthesia as a day procedure.

After the eyebrow correction

You can go home a few hours after the procedure. The complaints can be: swelling of the eyebrows and eyelids, painful eyebrows, bruising, headache. The swelling disappears after about two to six weeks. The eyebrows may remain sensitive for some time. We advise you to cool the operated area at home for the first few days with cool packs that are available at the pharmacy. This prevents the pain and swelling. You can take paracetamol for pain relief.

You may wash your face and you may take a shower. The plasters usually stay in place and dry just fine. You should avoid physical exertion and sports during the first week, as well as lifting heavy things and bending over. You are also not allowed to wear cream and make-up on the surgical area for 2 weeks. If your eyelids have also been corrected, you should not wear contact lenses for 2 weeks.

During the first check-up visit after the eyebrow correction, the plasters and any stitches are removed. To be able to assess the final result of the operation, you come back to the consultation hour 6 weeks later. You will return after three months for the final check. Photos will then be taken again for your medical file. The before and after photos, and therefore the result of the operation, can be viewed and compared.

Risks and Complications

With any surgery, there is a risk of infection, which may manifest as pain, swelling, redness, and pus from the wound. Bleeding may occur and an adverse reaction to the anesthetic may occur. Bruising may occur, usually accompanied by swelling. Asymmetry may develop and long-term sensitivity of the surgical site and scars may occur.

The scar heals better with one than with the other. In rare cases, hypertrophic (= strongly thickened) scars are formed. If unexpected problems arise, for example if inflammation develops, if pain increases or if there is bleeding afterward, or if wound healing is disturbed, please contact our centre.

Result

Eyebrow correction has a long-lasting effect but the ageing of the skin and the sagging of the facial tissues is a process that cannot be stopped. The eyebrow correction, however, takes approximately ten years off from the ageing process.
