A drooping brow as a result of relaxed muscles is most common in men, but can affect both sexes and leave a face looking haggard. It can often cause an ‘overhang’ effect; whilst this can be treated with Botulin Toxin (Botox), this is only temporary. A brow lift procedure is one permanent method of treating such a problem.
Heavy, sagging eyebrows and deep forehead lines can be improved with brow lift surgery. Not only does it lift the brows, but it also creates a smoother looking forehead for a younger look.
The majority of these procedures use small incisions made behind the hairline to gain access to the muscles below, but in some male cases incisions can be made in the actual brows. Both of these methods ensure visible scars are kept to a minimum.
After being placed under general anaesthetic, the surgeon will make tiny incisions along the hairline or an incision in the scalp to tighten the muscles and skin along the forehead.
This does change from person to person, but it may take a few months for the scars to fade and eventually they become harder to spot.
There may be some swelling and bruising. Any discomfort may be alleviated with the use of ice packs and painkillers.
Yes – it is actually very popular for patients to opt for both procedures, often with a Blepharoplasty (eye lid surgery) as well. Both a Face Lift and Blepharoplasty focus on the bottom two thirds of the face, whilst a brow lift focusses solely on the forehead and temples.
It may be a few days before you can wash your hair. Your surgeon will advise you on this.
