Sometimes called a forehead lift, a brow lift removes frown lines to produce a smoother forehead and a more youthful appearance.
The procedure may sometimes be performed using an endoscope (surgical video device) and other specialized instruments to make small incisions along the hairline. This allows the tissue and muscle beneath the skin to be repositioned, altered or removed, thus correcting the source of visible creases and furrows in the forehead. Correction of a low or sagging brow may be made with or without the use of an endoscope through incisions at the temples and in the scalp.
The brow lift can also be done by making incisions either side of the forehead near the temples and pulling the underlining muscles upwards.
A third technique which is sometimes used by our surgeon is a brow lift via the upper eyelids. This is normally done at the same time as upper eye lid surgery. The surgeon carefully works through the incision and from here, can reach the muscles on the forehead. This is a particularly useful procedure when patients feel that as they have aged they have been left with a cross expression due to the wrinkling between their eyebrows.
A brow lift is designed to correct or improve wrinkling as well as loss of tone and sagging of the eyebrows which often happens to people as they age.
You will be able to leave the clinic after your procedure. Any pain is minimal although you will be given pain killers like ibuprofen and paracetamol to lessen any discomfort in the first 24 hours following surgery. Dissolvable stitches are used.
You will have an aftercare appointment with your surgeon the following morning and everyday thereafter in order to check your recovery and for you to ask any questions and for the next few mornings after surgery.
