Sub-brow Lift

Removing drooping fat and wrinkles and returning to elastic and refreshed eye shape

What is a Sub-brow Lift?

Sub-brow lift can build a refreshed eye shape by pulling the saggy eyebrows upward.

People who are middle-aged or are seniors, who have thick eyelid skin, tend to be unsatisfied with their double eyelid line surgery.

The droopy eyelids can fester the outer edge of eyelids and can cause inflammation around these areas. Moreover, as droopy eyelids can interrupt his/her sight, patients try to open their eyes wider. This habit results in creating wrinkles on his/her forehead.

Caution Before Eye Surgery

  • You must stop eating any food at least four hours before an operation.
  • Bring clothing you can easily change into without irritating the surgical sites, such as a shirt or a big T-shirt.
  • Cigarettes may cause phlegm, sneezing, or bleeding after an operation. We strongly recommend that you stop smoking for two weeks before an operation.
  • A serious cold may reduce your trachea and respiratory functions. Please inform your doctor in advance if you happen to be suffering from a serious cold on the day of surgery.
  • You must stop taking any medications that might disturb hemostasis (oral contraceptive pills, hormonal drugs, vitamin E, aspirin, etc.) at least one week before an operation. If you are currently receiving treatment for high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, or thyroid disease, you must inform your doctor in advance.
  • We recommend that you take a bath and wash your head on the day before an operation. You must remove makeup and wash your teeth on the day of surgery. In addition, you must remove your contact lenses, any accessories, nail polish, and pedicure.

Caution After Eye Surgery

  • You can wash your face with water from the day after the stitches are removed. You may take a shower but should refrain from using a sauna or a public bath.
  • You must take the medications on time as prescribed by a physician and refrain from taking aspirin or hormonal drugs.
  • Refrain from smoking or drinking, which may delay your recovery, for at least four weeks after an operation.
  • Apply an ice pack on the surgical site for the first three days. Then, apply a warm pack on the site for two to three days. Placing the surgical sites on a higher position than your heart helps to reduce swelling. Refrain from drinking water before you go to sleep to prevent swelling.
  • As each individual has different health conditions, bruising or swelling may disappear at different rates. Please allow time until bruising or swelling disappears.
