Overview of Asian Brow Lift Surgery
The appearance of our forehead changes as we age due to loss of tissue elasticity, fat atrophy, muscle use and the effects of gravity. Over time, you may notice your brow line drooping and deep wrinkles forming across your forehead. You may also lose the natural arch in your eyebrows, or find that the descent of your brows gives your eyes a heavier, fuller or more hooded appearance.
These changes can be addressed with a brow lift. Also known as an eyebrow lift or forehead lift, a brow lift elevates and smooths the tissues of the upper face to restore a more youthful look. In some specific cases, the procedure may also help to reduce sagging skin in the upper eyelids.
At Asian Plastic Surgery, we understand the unique considerations and desires of Asian patients. We tailor our Asian brow lift procedures to produce a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance that harmonises with the facial structure and cultural preferences of our Asian patients.

Benefits of Asian Brow Lift Surgery
There are many reasons you may be considering a brow lift. This procedure might be suitable for you if:
- Your eyebrows have sunk to a lower position
- You have forehead creases and frown lines
- You have excess skin over your upper eyelid due to brow descent
- You constantly use your forehead muscles to raise your brows
- You wish to rejuvenate your resting expression
- Your brows are asymmetrical and you desire more balance
Satisfying plastic surgery experiences rely on excellent communication. When you visit Asian Plastic Surgery for your consultation, you will discuss your goals and expectations in detail with your surgeon. In return, your surgeon will communicate your options and help you make informed decisions.
What to Expect
The first step in your brow lift journey is a private consultation. During this initial meeting, your surgeon will conduct a complete facial analysis. Important considerations include assessments of your anatomy, skin quality, preferences and desired outcomes. With this information, your surgeon will develop a personalised treatment plan that addresses your cosmetic goals while respecting your cultural identity.
Asian brow lift surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. Several different techniques are available, with varying degrees of invasiveness and impact. Your surgeon will select a technique based on the needs and desires discussed during your consultation.
Following your brow lift procedure, you will be able to return home under the supervision of a trusted caretaker. Some degree of swelling, bruising and discomfort are expected after the operation. Keeping your head elevated and avoiding strenuous activities will help keep these side effects under control as they gradually subside over the coming weeks.
Stitches usually come out within seven to 10 days. Most patients can return to work and social activities within a similar timeframe, but keep in mind that each person’s recovery timeline is personal. Your recovery experience depends on the type of procedure you had, your body’s natural healing process and how closely you adhere to your aftercare instructions.
Two of the most widely discussed techniques for brow lifting are the temporal approach and the endoscopic approach.
Temporal Brow Lift
The temporal brow lift is a less invasive alternative to a classic brow lift. This technique focuses on the outer third of the brow, which is often more affected by the ageing process than the inner or central areas of the brow. A temporal brow lift involves two discreet incisions and can be completed in about an hour. For a variety of reasons that can be discussed during your consultation, this is our surgeon’s preferred approach.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
The endoscopic technique is a minimally-invasive brow lift performed using an endoscope (a thin, tube-like instrument with a tiny camera at the end) to visualise the surgical area. This approach is appealing because its incisions are small and hidden in the hair. However, it can be more difficult for the surgeon to control the operation, and it can sometimes create an unnatural “surprised” look. Our surgeon does not favour this method in most cases.
