How many times is it possible to have any form off eyebrow lift?

I am a 26 year old female, and I have always had very droopy of hanging eyebrows and eyelids. Recently I have been considering undergoing a eyebrow lift. Have been reading a bit on it and it seems that it last for most patient for up to 5 years. So my question is how many eyebrow lifts can I person have done in a life time.

Optimal Number of Plastic Surgery Procedures Varies by Patient

The short answer is that if you do not have a brow lift, in 5 years your sagging could be worse. The more detailed answer is that how many procedures you can have during one lifetime will be determined by the quality and elasticity of your skin. Certainly many people choose to do revision and “touch-up” surgeries after brow lifts, face lifts and blepharoplasties, among other procedures. It would be unusual for a patient to have more than 2 browlifts in their lifetime.  I hope this helps.

Hi, I have performed many Brow Lifts over the past 30 years.  Non smiling photos of your face would help evaluate the eyebrow position.  If the eyebrows are significantly low, compared to the desired aesthetic position, an open (Coronal Brow Lift) remains the "gold standard" by which all other brow lifting techniques are measured.  The issue with an endoscopic brow lift is that it requires some method of tissues suspension (hooks, screws, sutures or threads) and while one point of fixation can be achieved using the bone of the skull, the brow tissues are much softer allowing any suspension technique to ultimately pull through which will release the lifting effects.  The Coronal Brow Lift, on the other hand, trims excess, loose scalp created by the lifting process which holds the brows in the elevated, lifted position.  The Coronal Brow Lift can be modified to allow placement of the mid forehead first (eliminates the raised forehead), followed by individual adjustments to the level of each portion (inner and outer) of each eyebrow.  
While an endoscopic procedure may loose it's results from the fixation method giving way, the Coronal Brow Lift should last 10, 15 years or more.  Either procedure can be repeated however a previously performed endoscopic Brow Lift can't be converted to the more reliable Coronal Brow Lift due to the placement of the incisions used in the endoscopic technique.
Hope this helps.

Repeated brow operations

Hello and thanks for posting your question.
Any procedure in plastic surgery done the first time is most straightforward, any subsequent revision or redo procedures are less so. That being said, it is fairly common to have a second or third same procedure done if enough time and aging elapses between procedures. The same is true for browlift procedures.
I would recommend that you be seen and evaluated by a reputable, board certified, plastic surgeon to discuss your concerns and have individual recommendations given to help you achieve your goals.

There is no specific number of brow lifts that can be performed on a person.  The decision to operate or not is really based on the appearance of the patient and the position of the brows.  If the patient is a good candidate for the procedure, it could be done, regardless of how many times it has been done in the past.
