Brow lifting results can last a lifetime. It's very rare to ever require two browlifts in a lifetime unless they have been under corrected. The brow lift procedure involves adjustments to the hairline which include raising or lowering it, raising the eyebrows, adjustments to the hyperactive corrugator, frontalis and procures muscles, and placing dermal grafts behind the vertical corrugator lines between the eyebrows. The brow lift operation is at great procedure for patients who have very low eyebrows with respect to their eyelashes. For many examples, please see the link below to our brow lift Photo Gallery
Brow position can certainly change after undergoing upper lid surgery with or without a ptosis repair. You should see a surgeon that is well experienced in performing brow lifts in cases of prior eyelid surgery to determine if you would benefit from a brow lift. There are several types of brow lift surgery, the most common being the endoscopic brow lift approach. The results usually last at least 5-10 years depending on the severity of your brow droop and other factors including technique. Good luck...
I believe you said you had an Asian eyelid lift but now the lids are looking heavy and you are now wondering about having a browlift. Obviously I do not know your age or the circumstances of your surgery. My only comment is that after your type of surgery, the eyebrows might fall a bit because your frontalis muscle which lifts the brows might have been hyperactive in order to lift the ptotic eyelids and now can relax since they don't have to work so hard. An endoscopic browlift could help in this situation and should last for many years but this is dependent on many factors.

Your question is a very common concern amongst those seeking facial surgery. Appreciable results from a brow lift should last at least 10 years. Keep in mind, the longevity has as much to do with how well you care for your skin as it does the surgical technique. If your not a smoker, you are fastidious about sun protection and you utilize a pharmaceutical grade skin care regimine your results will last for a decade or more. Find a Plastic Surgeon, board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and schedule a consult. Be specific about your questions and concerns. This will put you and your surgeon on the same page from the beginning. Best of luck!
When I perform endoscopic brow lifts for cosmetic patients, I find the results last at least 10-15 years.
A briwlift should maintain the desired brow position for 5-15 years. However, depending on technique, many fall back by one year..
