A brow lift can you leave you looking younger and help to
get rid of the horizontal line and furrows that sometimes give people an angry,
sad or tired appearance.
This procedure can be combined with a facelift or eyelid
surgery; however a brow lift may actually correct the problems that made you
consider these other procedures in the first place
This procedure involves raising the eyebrows and underlying muscles, to smooth the forehead, minimise frown lines and correct abnormally low eyebrows to their original position. The incision usually starts at the ear level, runs across the top of the forehead (hidden behind the hairline) and then back down the other side. Once the incision has been made and the underlying tissue has been removed the brow will be lifted and the excess skin at the incision removed. The wound is sutured or stapled closed. This procedure may also slightly stretch the upper eyelids, resulting in a younger appearance
One night hospital stay Duration of operation Usually one hour Anesthetic Surgery can be performed under local and general Anesthesia.
Pre operative care:
Before surgery insure to inform your surgeon of any allergies, medical conditions and medication currently taking. To eliminate the chance of post operative bleeding you should avoid aspirin for two weeks prior to surgery; stop smoking at least 2 weeks prior to surgery. Patients who suffer from hypertension must inform the surgeon prior to surgery. If you have short hair you may wish to let your hair grow so you will be able to conceal the scar while it is healing.
Post operative care
Your surgeon will remove any dressings within 24 hours after your procedure. And stitches will usually be removed after 1 week. You may experience some discomfort, which can be treated with pain medication. Each individual is different; you may have no discomfort other than a feeling of tightness. Infections are extremely rare however antibiotics are administered to avoid any potential risks. There may be some swelling and bruising around eyes, but this will generally fade with 2 weeks of surgery. For the first month patients should avoid any strenuous activities such as jogging, bending, heavy housework or any activities that may increase your blood pressure.
Almost all patients are happy with the results and achieve a younger appearance the procedure can minimize the effects of aging for years.
Risks and complications
The most common risks are swelling, bruising, infection, scarring, bleeding and numbness or change in sensation due to nerve damage. Although you may experience a change in sensation or numbness this is usually temporary and gradually subsides over the following 12 months after procedure. If you have fine hair or thin hair the scar may be more visible. Hair does not grow through the scar tissue although if necessary there is a very reliable procedure to correct this later via a hair transplant. Very occasionally never damage may lead to a loss of ability to raise the eyebrows or wrinkle the forehead. Additional surgery can correct the problem. Loss of sensation around the incision is also common but this is usually temporary. Rarely does this affect patients permanently.
