Brow & Forehead Lift

A Brow lift repositions the brow to create a more youthful and refreshed facial appearance

A brow lift, also called forehead lift, is the most effective procedure for correcting droopy eyebrows, horizontal lines and furrows, thus rejuvenating the eyebrows and getting rid of the tired look.

The earliest signs of aging can occur around our eyes and forehead. Typically, people will notice excessive horizontal forehead lines, drooping eyebrows, or heavy upper eyelids. A brow lift is a cosmetic medical procedure design to return the brows to a natural looking, higher position. It is an effective way to achieve a fresher, softer facial appearance.

Before Forehead LiftA forehead lift can smooth the forehead, raise the upper eyelids, and minimize the frown lines that come with aging.
After Forehead LiftThe result of a forehead lift is a younger, more rested look.

About the Procedure

Your plastic surgeon will make small incisions along the hairline to reposition the brow, modify underlying muscles, smooth the forehead, raise the upper eyelids and minimize frown lines. An endoscope, which allows for amazing results without extensive incisions, will be used. This procedure takes two to three hours under light general anaesthesia allowing you to return home the same day.

Forehead LiftIn preparation for a forehead lift, the hair is tied back with rubber bands in front of and behind the incision area. An incision is usually made across the top of the head, just behind the hairline.
Forehead LiftForehead skin is gently lifted and portions of facial muscle and excess skin are removed. The incision is then closed with stitches or clips.
What to expect during recovery

Bruising and swelling around the eyes may be experienced for several days, but is easily controlled with medication. Sutures or staples will be removed about a week after surgery and any swelling will diminish within one to three weeks.

You will be able to resume normal activities within seven to ten days. However, any exercise, lifting, bending over or straining should be avoided for at least two weeks. You may also experience some limited scalp numbness, but normal sensation should recover after a period of a few weeks. All scalp incisions will be small and largely unnoticeable.

Your New Look

Your eyebrows will appear more arched and will no longer sag and your forehead will appear smoother. A smoother forehead and eyes that appear more open will result in a more restful and youthful face.
