The eyebrow lift is already a well-known procedure in plastic surgery. Often this is performed on men or women who want to regain their youthful appearance. For the trans woman this procedure can offer a solution to make the face more feminine.

Male eyebrows are usually lower than a woman’s. It is for this reason that many Facial Feminization patients undergo an eyebrow lift, sometimes referred to as a brow lift, to bring the eyebrows to a more feminine level.

How does a bilateral eyebrow lift work?

This treatment is performed while you are under general anesthesia.

An eyebrow lift is performed by lifting the skin of the entire forehead, raising the eyebrows.

When am I suitable for an eyebrow lift?

If you suffer from hanging eyebrows that make you look older and give you a sad or tired look, you are eligible for an eyebrow lift. However, the doctor determines whether you are suitable for an eyebrow lift.

What are the benefits of an eyebrow lift?

  • No visible scars

  • More feminine face

  • No weakening of the skull

  • The operation lasts 60 minutes

  • Surgeon with years of experience


During your first consultation with the doctor, you can indicate what bothers you most and what exactly you want to change. Before your interview, photos will be taken for the medical record and to discuss with the surgeon during your interview. As a result, he will check whether you are a suitable candidate and will propose the most suitable treatment for you for feminizing the forehead. The surgeon explains what this technique entails and what you can expect as an end result.

In this way you can make a well-informed decision about the desired forehead correction. Furthermore, the surgeon will ask about your health, medical background and possible medication use. If you use blood-thinning medication, you must stop taking this at least a week before the treatment.

During your consultation, the recovery period and any risks and complications will also be discussed with you. After this, your consultation will be summarized in a treatment plan and the total costs of the treatment will be discussed with our consultant. The consultation takes approximately 60 minutes and aims to inform you as clearly and fully as possible about the eyebrow lift.

What can I expect after the Bilateral Eyebrow Lift?

Recovery after an eyebrow lift is generally fairly easy. For a week you walk with a bandage around your forehead. After a week it is removed by the doctor to clean your incisions. You can then wash your hair.

Due to gravity, bruising and swelling around the eyes and cheeks can be somewhat worse. The scalp can be numb for a few weeks to months. This disappears over time. Most people take a week off from work until the bruises have disappeared. There are also patients who feel good enough to do work at home during most of the recovery period.
