Brow lift patients generally like what they see, a new survey shows. According to the findings, most said they’d definitely or probably have the procedure again when asked about it around three years later. They also said they would recommend it to others.

That said, many patients needed weeks of recovery time, and almost one in seven expressed dissatisfaction. The results appear in the September/October issue of Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery.

All of the 98 patients polled underwent endoscopic brow lifts at University Hospital Rechts der Isar of the Munich Technical University between 1994 and 2007. Ninety six percent of patients were women with an average age of 60.

Fully 63% said they’d definitely or likely have the brow lift procedure again, while 18% said they definitely or likely would not do so. Eighteen percent were on the fence, the study showed. The percentages were similar when they were asked if they’d recommend the procedure to others.

“Endoscopic forehead-lift enables long-lasting results with highly satisfied patients,” the study authors conclude.
