I had a brow lift 15 years ago. Can I have another one?

Hello D.Marshall,

It is common for patients to undergo a "tuck up" procedure 10-15 years after the original procedure.  This is done for many cosmetic procedures including brow lift.  I would recommend you consult with a facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon to see what options would be good for you.

I hope this helps and good luck.

Redo brow lift

Without seeing your photos its hard to evaluate what procedure would rejuvenate the area around your eyes. There is no reason that  a brow lift can not be redone. I advise you to seek the counsel of a board-certified plastic surgeon. Good luck.

Secondary procedure

You can definitely have another brow lift performed. You may want to consider going to another surgeon if you weren’t satisfied with your results.

Second Brow lift

Sure, its not uncommon for patient to need a second brow lift 10 or so years after the first. Visit your original surgeon or any local board certified plastic surgeon.

Revision browlift after 15 years

It is certainly possible and safe to perform a revision browlift after 15 years.  The specific procedure chosen and recommendations about other procedures which may benefit you would require an in-person consultation.  I recommend seeing a facial plastic surgeon experienced in browlift and facial rejuvenation.

If it has been 15 years since your last surgery, it certainly is possible to have a secondary brow lift.  From your description you may need to also consider a blepharoplasty as well.  Seek out a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in facial rejuvenation.  Best wishes, Dr. Lepore.

Repeat brow lift

Yes a repeat brow lift can be done.  Some types of brow lifts have a higher incidence of relapse including some endoscopic techniques. You should talk to your plastic surgeon about the type of brow lift that you are wanting and the expected results and longevity before making your final decisions.

Previous brow lift

Having a previous surgery usually does not prevent a subsequent procedure.  Sometimes secondary procedures can be more difficult because of scar tissue. I would consult with a qualified surgeon to discuss  the best options for your present circumstance.
