I’m sorry,there was no option of choosing brow lift so instead I chose facelift.

I’m 19 yrs old. I'm so bothered about my droopy eyebrows. I wanted to get it fixed later on. I just wanted to ask how long does coronal brow lift last? Is it permanent, since I’m still 19 yrs, and if maintain my health, reduce sun exposure and with excercises?

Procedure: Facelift
Location: Bangalore, KA - India

If you were born with low-set eyebrows, a browlift can reposition the brows and provide a more youthful, open-eyed look. Browlifts can be performed with a coronal incision (all the way across the top of the head), endoscopically (using a few small incisions and a camera to visualize the surgery), or directly (placing an incision just above the brow and removing an ellipse of skin, or along the front hairline). Scars within the hair are less visible. If your front hairline is also low then a a coronal or endoscopic technique would elevate your hairline too. If you don't want your hairline shifted higher, an incision in the forehead skin would be better, but the resulting scar might be more obvious. Your results should be very long-lived, although in your later years you may notice some stretching of the forehead skin with aging that causes your brows to lower a bit.

Dear Sachin,

Hello and thank you for your excellent question. A brow lift will generally be permanent, but your face will still age normally. It is best to answer your question during a face-to-face evaluation, when you can discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure, and you can have a physical examination to evaluate for that procedure. I recommend that you find a board-certified, or board-eligible plastic surgeon with whom you are comfortable. Be sure to have all of your questions answered during a face-to-face meeting with your surgeon, and review before and after pictures of similar patients whom have had this procedure. If you have any questions, call our office for assistance. Good luck!
