A brow lift can also be known as a forehead lift. It is an operation to lift the forehead and raise the level of your eyebrows and involves making an incision in the hairline or in the folds just above the eyebrow and pulling skin tight.
Various types of brow lift procedures are available including endoscopic. Brow lifts are often combined with eyelid rejuvenation, face lift, neck lift, autologous fat transfer and non surgical facial rejuvenation treatments.
Who is it for?
The brow lift operation can help to lift folds of skin that may hang over your eyes and smooth out frown lines between your eyebrows, and reduce wrinkles you may have on your forehead.
A consultation regarding the risks and limitations of surgery will help you to choose a procedure that will meet with your expectations.
An eyebrow lift procedure takes approximately one hour and is performed under general anaesthetic. You may go home the same day.
The day after the operation there may be some light swelling and a bit of blood. This will disappear within a week.
After the stitches are removed the scars may be a bit red. The incisions are made in places that are not easily noticeable and eyebrow lifts traditionally result in minimal scarring.
