What Is a Mini Brow Lift?

A mini brow lift, also referred to as a temporal or lateral brow lift, is a surgical cosmetic procedure used to lift the outer corner of the eyebrow. In addition to lifting a section of the eyebrow, a mini brow lift can reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and outside the eyes.

The mini brow lift is significantly less invasive than the traditional brow lift, which involves lifting both the forehead and the entire eyebrow. However, the mini brow lift is still able to provide significant, natural-looking results.

How Is a Mini Brow Lift Performed?

To perform a mini brow lift, Dr. Tseng typically makes tiny incisions hidden beneath the hairline. Then, he carefully lifts and adjusts the underlying tissue around the outer portion of the eyebrow. This raises the brow and smooths out the skin in that area of the face, creating a more youthful-looking appearance and eliminating wrinkles. Any excess skin is then trimmed away to complete the procedure.

Benefits of a Mini Brow Lift

For anyone unsatisfied with their drooping eyebrows, a mini brow lift can provide several significant benefits:

  • Raising the outer portion of the eyebrow(s)
  • Smoother facial skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles
  • More youthful facial appearance
  • Reduces hooding over the upper eyelids
  • Allows you to open your eyes wider
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Less invasive than a traditional brow lift
  • Minimal scarring

What Should I Expect During the Surgery?

Your first step toward undergoing a mini brow lift will be to sit down for a consultation with Dr. Tseng. During this meeting, the doctor will help you decide if the surgery is the best option. He’ll evaluate your goals for the treatment and give you information about the procedure. If you decide to move forward, Dr. Tseng will put together a treatment plan that’s custom-tailored to your needs.

Your mini brow lift will most likely be performed as an outpatient procedure. First, you’ll be administered local anesthesia with IV sedation to keep you calm and comfortable during the surgery. Next, Dr. Tseng will make the needed incisions, making sure to make them as small and hidden as possible. He will then make adjustments to your facial tissue based on your personalized treatment plan, lifting one or both eyebrows and smoothing the surrounding skin. Finally, he will trim any excess skin and close the incisions with sutures. Overall, a mini brow lift usually takes around an hour to complete.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

The recovery downtime is generally shorter for a mini brow lift than it is for a traditional brow lift. You may experience some swelling, soreness, and bruising in the days following your surgery. Most patients can return to work and their normal routines only a few days after a mini brow lift, but strenuous physical activity should be avoided for at least two weeks.

Am I a Candidate for a Mini Brow Lift?

Adults who would like to lift their eyebrows without undergoing a traditional brow lift could be good candidates for a mini brow lift. If you meet the following requirements, you could be an ideal candidate for the procedure:

  • Have the desire to raise one or both eyebrows and reduce signs of aging facial skin
  • Be in generally good health
  • Be a non-smoker
  • Have realistic expectations

How Long Will It Take To See Results After a Mini Brow Lift?

It usually doesn’t take long to see the positive effects of your mini brow lift procedure. As the swelling and bruising subside, the results of the surgery will become visible. Usually, the improvements from a mini brow lift will last for several years.
