Brow Lift

Our forehead is probably the most noticeable part of our face. Sagging eye brows as well as forehead and frown lines in general are visible signs of aging. This, and facial aging in general, occurs due to a variety of reasons. To begin with the skin’s support network of collagen and elastin breaks down and, as a result, the skin loses some of its structure and elasticity. It therefore becomes lax. Furthermore, facial muscles weaken and stretch while fat deposits migrate downward and are depleted. These changes work together to create the aging effect we are all so familiar with. Brow lift surgery, also referred to as a forehead or eyebrow lift, allows  patients to achieve a younger, more refreshed look by smoothing the forehead, reducing frown lines, and elevating the position of the eyebrow line.

 There are 2 ways the forehead lift to be performed: 1-through a coronal incision in which the surgeon  makes an incision few centimiters behind the hairline from one ear to the other, removing excessive skin and fat tissue and modify muscles which cause furrowing and drooping. They will then close the incision with very fine stitches to eliminate scarring. This is the coronal forehead lift and 2 – the endoscopic forehead lift.

 Brow lift can be performed under either local anaesthesia with sedation or under general anaesthesia. In the former case an overnight stay in hospital is not required, therefore, the patient is free to return home a few hours after the operation. As with all operations under general anaesthesia, however, an overnight stay in the hospital is required.

After surgery special bandages must be worn for around a week and stitches will be removed after 7-10 days.
