Brow Lift Perth

In recent years, eyebrows have gained significant attention in the realm of facial aesthetics. Their importance lies in their ability to frame the eyes and bring balance to the entire face. When eyebrows sag or droop, it can impart an appearance of aging, fatigue, or even anger. Additionally, this sagging can make the eyelids appear more hooded or heavy.

A Brow Lift is a cosmetic procedure designed to elevate the eyebrows, thereby addressing issues of sagging or drooping. This uplift not only revitalizes the look of the eyes but also rejuvenates the overall appearance of the face. It is also effective in correcting asymmetry in the brows. Many patients discover that what they perceive as heaviness in their eyelids is actually related to the positioning of their brows. For optimal results, Brow Lifts are frequently performed in conjunction with Blepharoplasty, a procedure that corrects eyelid issues, to achieve a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

See All Before & After

Temporal Brow Lift

The Temporal Brow Lift procedure specifically aims to lift the temporal area of the face, which includes elevating the tail of the eyebrow and addressing the crow’s feet, the wrinkles that appear on the outer side of the eyes. To achieve this, a small incision is made along the hairline on each side. This strategic placement of incisions is carefully chosen to minimize visible scarring, ensuring a more discreet and aesthetically pleasing outcome. The result is a rejuvenated appearance around the eyes and the upper portion of the face, enhancing overall facial harmony.

Threads to the Forehead

Closed thread lifts have seen significant advancements from their initial inception, which involved the use of brittle Russian threads, to the modern, absorbable threads used today. These contemporary threads are typically inserted using needles and are designed with barbs or similar structures to effectively hold and lift the skin on the forehead. Additionally, some threads are equipped with small cones or similar features that aid in grasping the dermis, providing an enhanced lifting effect. This evolution in thread lift technology has led to more durable and safer options for those seeking a non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation.

Transpalpebral Lift

The procedure referred to as the Transpalpebral Browpexy is specifically designed to lift the outer brow. It is particularly suitable for individuals who experience a slight drooping at the tail end of their eyebrows. This technique can be effectively combined with eyelid surgery, known as Upper Blepharoplasty, for a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. The combined approach not only elevates the outer brow but also addresses any concerns related to the upper eyelids, making it an ideal solution for those looking to correct both brow and eyelid issues simultaneously for a harmonious and refreshed appearance.

Brow Lift cost

The cost of the Brow Lift in Perth will depend on the type of brow lift required. The Transpalpebral Lift is from $2,200, this procedure is an optional add-on to a blepharoplasty which is priced between $2,200 and $6,600. Threads to the Forehead is priced from $3,300. The Temporal Brow Lift starts from $4,400.

Non-surgical Brow Lift alternative

Indeed, a subtle lift of the eyebrows can be accomplished using a Wrinkle Relaxer. This procedure has gained popularity in recent times, thanks in part to media attention. However, it’s crucial to understand that the results obtained from a Wrinkle Relaxer Brow Lift are typically less dramatic and not as enduring as those from a surgical Brow Lift. Generally, the effects of a Wrinkle Relaxer last about 3-4 months. It’s worth noting, though, that because only a small dose is used to achieve the brow lift, some individuals may find that the duration of the effect is somewhat shorter. This non-surgical option is ideal for those seeking a more subtle enhancement and are comfortable with the need for periodic treatments to maintain the lift.

How The Brow Lift Procedure Works

Procedure Consultation

In accordance with AHPRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency) protocol, it is a prerequisite to obtain a GP referral for all cosmetic surgical procedures before scheduling a consultation with Dr. Glenn Murray. Additionally, a Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) questionnaire will need to be completed to assess your suitability for the procedure. To facilitate informed discussions and address any questions you may have, informational videos will be sent to your designated email prior to your meeting with Dr. Murray. Following a second consultation with a member of our clinical team, a mandatory 7-day cooling off period will commence. During this time, we strongly encourage you to seek further information and education regarding your desired procedure, as well as consider obtaining a second opinion. After the 7-day cooling off period, you are welcome to proceed with scheduling your procedure and embark on your Absolute Cosmetic journey.

Procedure Preperation

It is imperative to strictly avoid smoking, vaping, and illicit drug use before, during, and after the procedure. Nicotine consumption during the surgical process heightens the risk of complications, infection, delayed healing, or an unsatisfactory cosmetic outcome. Please note that we maintain a stringent cancellation policy for those who continue to smoke or vape. We advise all patients to cease smoking at least 2 weeks before the procedure and to abstain for 6 weeks following the procedure. Reducing nicotine intake does not diminish the risk of complications; the most substantial health benefit is derived from quitting smoking altogether. We highly recommend and encourage the use of nicotine cessation aids during this period. For more comprehensive information regarding potential complications and guidance on quitting smoking, please refer to this resource.

It is vital to note that if you have smoked within the last 2 weeks, the procedure will be canceled, and payment will not be refunded.

To ensure your readiness for the procedure, being in good health is essential. It’s crucial to avoid blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, fish oil, green tea, and turmeric leading up to the procedure. Additionally, a blood test should be conducted at least 1 week before the scheduled procedure. A nurse will go through an extensive checklist to ensure that you are well prepared, via a pre-operative call before your procedure day.

The Procedure

On the day of the procedure, fasting is mandatory, meaning you should refrain from consuming food or water for 6 hours prior to your scheduled surgical start time. However, you may take a small sip of water in the morning to consume any pre-surgery medication if necessary. These precautions are taken to optimize your safety and the success of the procedure. All paperwork must be completed before the procedure and will be sighted and signed by your admitting surgical nurse.

The surgery is performed under neurolept sedation (rather than general anaesthesia) with local tumescent anaesthesia to make the area numb. This procedure is usually completed within 1-2 hours. Many patients will have the upper and lower eyelid surgery at the same time, and potentially other procedures such as Fat Transfer and Forehead Thread Lift. Expect to be drowsy after the procedure, this is a side effect of the sedation, but not in substantial discomfort.

Post Procedure

After your brow lift, you will be escorted to our recovery suite for further rest. It is essential that a responsible adult collects you and provides supervision for the first night. Should you experience any severe pain or significant swelling, it’s important to contact us immediately. At the time of your discharge, during the nurse’s handover to your designated caregiver, an urgent aftercare contact number will be provided. This is for you or your caregiver to use if urgent assistance is needed. The next day, our team will conduct a follow-up review and provide you with all necessary aftercare instructions, which you should adhere to closely for optimal recovery.

Risks and Recovery following a Brow Lift


Like any surgical procedure, it carries certain risks and potential complications. Here are some of the potential risks associated with a surgical brow lift: Infection, scarring, nerve damage, eyebrow asymmetry, eye dryness or irritation, forehead numbness or tightness, or anesthesia risks to name a few.

It’s important to note that the likelihood of experiencing these risks varies from person to person and depends on factors such as surgical technique, individual health status, and adherence to post-operative instructions. Patients should thoroughly discuss their medical history, expectations, and concerns with our team of nurses and doctors at your consultations.


Post-surgery, a minimum of 5 days of rest is crucial, during which time all strenuous activities should be avoided. Additionally, it is imperative to abstain from smoking entirely. If sutures are applied, they are typically removed on Day 7. Many patients find they can resume work around Day 8, although this timeline can vary based on the extent of swelling and bruising experienced. It’s important to remember that recovery times can differ significantly from one individual to another. Factors such as age, genetics, and lifestyle choices play a role in influencing the pace and nature of your recovery process.

For the initial 2 weeks post-surgery, it’s advisable to avoid all forms of exercise, with the exception of walking. After this period, a gradual and cautious reintroduction of physical activity is recommended. Your nursing team will provide a comprehensive overview of your post-operative care on day 1, following the procedure. Adhering closely to these guidelines is essential for achieving optimal recovery. It’s important to follow their advice carefully to ensure a smooth and effective healing process.
