Are you interested in undergoing an eyebrow lift to correct sagging and wrinkles around your eyebrows?
If so, it’s safe to say you’re incredibly excited about your results. After all, an eyebrow lift can take years off of your appearance, plus help make you look more rejuvenated, alert, and well-rested.
But in order to achieve those results, it’s important to dedicate plenty of time and energy into having a successful eyebrow lift recovery.
So how exactly can you do that?
5 Tips to Have a Successful Eyebrow Lift Recovery
1. Attend all follow-up appointments.
During your first month of eyebrow lift recovery, your plastic surgeon will schedule a few follow-up appointments to check in on your progress. It’s absolutely important that you attend these appointments, as they’re critical to achieving your optimal results.
While every plastic surgeon is different, you should expect to encounter these follow-up appointments:
- A session to remove your sutures or stitches from your incisions
- An appointment to check in on your progress and provide approval for going back to work
- Another appointment (usually one month after the surgery) to give the green light for going back to your normal gym routine.
2. Move when possible.
During the first week after your eyebrow lift, you may feel groggy as a result of general anesthesia. However, when you feel up to it, try to move when possible. Take gentle walks to get your blood pumping, even if it’s just around the block. Don’t overdo it, though; you shouldn’t engage in strenuous activity until about one month into your recovery.

3. Use your time off.
Take as much time as you need to recover – anywhere from one to two weeks – and really devote yourself to rest and relaxation. Don’t take the time off but still do things that could jeopardize your recovery, as doing any activity before you’re ready could interfere with your results.
4. Expect some swelling and bruising.
It’s important to mentally prepare yourself for the side effects of your eyebrow lift, which can include swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the incision sites. These side effects can last for several weeks before you see your optimal results.
5. Ease back into your normal workout routine.
You should be cleared to work out again about three to four weeks into your recovery time. Make sure you have the green light from your plastic surgeon before hitting the gym!
