Eyebrow Lift in St. George UT & Mesquite NV
What is an Eyebrow Lift?
A typical eyebrow lift is done as an outpatient procedure and typically takes 1-3 hours, but may be longer if you decide to compliment the brow lift with other beauty enhancing cosmetic surgeries. Local anesthesia with sedation or general sedation may be used, depending on the circumstances and Dr. Tarbet’s preference.
Patients can expect to be in the comfort of their own home within hours following the eyebrow lift surgery, and stitches will be removed in approximately one week. Though you will be able to notice a more youthful, rested looking appearance within days, continuous healing and improvement occurs for up to a year.

Endoscopic Brow Lift
With an endoscopic brow lift, the surgeon will make 3-5 short incisions in the hairline. The surgeon can insert a camera into one of the incisions in order to visualize the working space, and then uses a different instrument to manipulate the tissue through the other incisions to lift and rejuvenate the eyebrow, eyelid, and forehead region. The shorter incisions in an endoscopic brow lift mean a shorter recovery time and less scarring than those from a traditional brow lift.
Recovery from a Brow Lift
A patient will typically return home the day of their brow lift surgery, but an overnight stay can be necessary for some. Swelling can be pronounced for the first couple of days after surgery, but most swelling will go away within 2 weeks. Bending and heavy lifting should be avoided for the first few days after surgery.
It can take up to 6 months for swelling to fully subside and for any scars to fade.
