What to expect before, during, and after your eyebrow lift procedure

If you’re considering eyebrow lift surgery, you probably have a lot of questions. Dr. Daniel S. Tresley is a board-certified ophthalmologist in the Northbrook, IL area who performs these procedures regularly for patients in the community. He understands that patients considering this treatment may have many questions about what to expect before, during, and after their procedure. If you are interested in having a brow lift or other facial procedures performed to reverse the signs of aging by addressing skin laxity, the eyebrow lift may be right for you.

Here is what you can expect before, during, and after your procedure.


Before your surgery, Dr. Daniel Tresley will need to assess your medical history and do a physical examination. He also takes photographs of your face from different angles. This is all done to help plan your surgery and ensure that it’s safe for you to proceed. During this time, he can determine if you are a good candidate for this or other plastic surgery procedures to achieve your desired results.


During the surgery, the doctor will make incisions in the skin near your hairline. Through these incisions, they’ll manipulate the muscles and tissues around your eyebrows to achieve the desired results. In some cases, they may also need to remove excess skin.


After the surgery, you’ll likely experience some swelling and bruising. This is completely normal and will subside on its own over time. Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for your incisions and what to expect as you heal. They may also prescribe pain medication to help you stay comfortable. Most people see a noticeable difference in their appearance after surgery. However, it can take several weeks or sometimes months for the full results to become apparent.
