Can You Move Your Eyebrows After A Brow Lift?

A brow lift surgery lifts the position of the eyebrows into a more youthful position and helps to reduce wrinkles, extra skin, and sagging. However, patients interested in or considering a brow lift often want to have a more youthful brow and forehead, but do not want to sacrifice natural movements. Let’s look at one of the commonly asked questions, “Can you move your eyebrows after a brow lift?”

Immediately after a brow lift, you should limit movement of the brow and upper face. This is simply because the area is still healing and too much movement could cause you to tear a stitch or hinder your results. It also likely will cause more pain and discomfort than if you do not move the brows.

Once you are adequately healed though, you should retain natural movement of the eyebrows after a brow lift. There is a small risk that movements could be hindered, but this is extremely unlikely with today’s less invasive methods. Additionally, a brow lift does not always address the underlying muscles.
