How Long Does a Brow Lift Last?
The eyebrows not only serve the important function of safeguarding your eyes from dust and debris but also greatly affect your overall appearance and facial expressions. If your eyebrows are off-balance, so is your entire face.
As we age, eyelids and eyebrows can become droopy, creating a tired, dull appearance. This type of sagging is not something your local microblading specialist will be able to cure. Excess skin and deep lines require a more effective, more permanent solution. Enter the brow lift—also known as a forehead lift. An endoscopic brow lift can lift and rejuvenate the forehead and eye area on its own, or enhance the improvements made during an upper blepharoplasty.
So, you’re interested in a brow lift to brighten up your appearance and improve the balance of your face, but you want to be sure it would be a good investment, so you’re wondering: How long does a brow lift last?
Like many procedures, results and longevity may vary depending on many factors, but most patients see lasting results from their brow lifts for many years. Dr. Allan Wulc of W Cosmetic Surgery® in Philadelphia works with each of his patients to understand their individual needs, goals, longevity projection, and recovery plan.

Will the Results From a Brow Lift Last Forever?
While we understand the desire for eternal youth, it’s important to understand that while a brow lift provides long-lasting results, it may not be permanent. The aging process continues, albeit at a slower pace post-surgery. Factors such as genetics, lifestyle, and skincare routines play roles in determining how well the results endure.
How Long Does a Brow Lift Last?
The longevity of a brow lift’s effects varies from person to person. On average, patients can enjoy the benefits for several years. The procedure effectively addresses forehead furrows, frown lines, and loose skin that contribute to an aged appearance. While it won’t halt the natural aging process, a brow lift significantly sets back the hands of time.
In general, you won’t have to repeat a brow lift if we get it right the first time.
How to Ensure Your Brow Lift Lasts
Maximizing the longevity of your brow lift involves diligent aftercare. Following Dr. Wulc’s post operative instructions is crucial. Patients are advised to refrain from strenuous activities during the initial weeks, allowing adequate time for healing. Additionally, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including proper skincare and sun protection, can positively impact the duration of your rejuvenated look.
Wearing enough sunscreen and other forms of protection from sun damage such as hats and long sleeves will keep your skin healthier, and prevent and decelerate aging. When your skin is exposed to UV rays, its integrity breaks down, speeding up the aging process. This is how it can affect your brow lift and why you should prioritize sun protection to maintain the results.
After your brow lift, the use of anti-aging and ultra hydrating skincare products can help maintain your results as they promote collagen production to tighten and nourish your skin.

We have looked at our brow lift results and also compared them to the results of physicians in our specialty in this area. What we’ve noticed is that brow lifts DO NOT drop over time. Initially, the brows may seem overcorrected and within the first few months settle to a level that resembles the way they looked in years prior–the hands of time have essentially been reversed.
The desirable results tend to be maintained.
An endoscopic brow lift effectively weakens the muscles that make you frown. With time, what we’ve noticed is that the lifted brow either stays the same or tends to rise. The results remain consistent and natural.
