SURGICAL PROCEDURE

BROW LIFT

TREATMENT OVERVIEW

A Brow Lift, commonly known as a forehead lift, is a surgical intervention aimed at rejuvenating the brow and forehead area. Over time, factors like ageing, genetics, and environmental elements can lead to a descent of the eyebrows and the formation of deep lines on the forehead.

While the aesthetic implications are evident, sagging brows can also pose functional challenges, sometimes impeding vision. The Brow Lift procedure addresses these aesthetic and functional issues, bestowing a refreshed, alert, youthful appearance to the upper face.

THE PROCEDURE

The path to a Brow Lift commences with an initial consultation. Here, the surgeon evaluates the patient’s facial structure, listens to their concerns, and gauges the extent of the procedure required. This meeting is pivotal for aligning patient expectations with achievable outcomes.


Anaesthesia choices are made collaboratively, considering the patient’s comfort, health, and the procedure’s scope. Local anaesthesia with sedation is often the go-to, but general anaesthesia might be chosen in certain scenarios. 

The surgical approach for a Brow Lift involves making incisions either along the hairline or behind the hairline, ensuring they remain concealed. The surgeon can lift the forehead skin through these incisions, adjust underlying muscles, and remove excess tissue, achieving the desired brow position.

Following the surgery, incisions are meticulously sutured, and ointments might be applied to foster healing and minimise infection risks. The precision of the procedure ensures that post-operative marks remain concealed and blend seamlessly.

THE BENEFITS

You may choose to undergo a Brow Lift for a number of reasons:

The procedure revitalises the upper face by elevating sagging brows and smoothing forehead wrinkles, rendering a more alert and youthful appearance.

A Brow Lift can enhance vision by rectifying drooping brows that might obstruct sight, facilitating daily tasks like reading.

The rejuvenated appearance often boosts self-confidence, empowering patients to feel more positive in both social and professional spheres.

FAQS

A brow lift primarily targets the forehead and brow region. While it can subtly alter the appearance of the eyes by lifting drooping brows, it doesn’t change the fundamental shape of the eyes. However, it can make the eyes appear more open and refreshed.

Yes, nonsurgical brow lifts use treatments like Botox, dermal fillers, or ultrasound therapy to lift and tighten the brow area. These treatments offer temporary results and are suitable for those not ready for surgery. For more information visit www.drsof.co.uk

Many patients combine a brow lift with other procedures like eyelid surgery, facelift, or skin resurfacing to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Combining procedures can reduce overall recovery time and enhance results.

A brow lift is typically an outpatient procedure, meaning patients can go home the same day after surgery. However, they’ll need someone to drive them home and assist them for the first 24 hours post-surgery.

The best way to determine the right brow lift treatment is through a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. They will assess your goals, facial anatomy, and skin elasticity to recommend the most suitable approach.
