As we age, the skin of the forehead gradually loses its elasticity and pronounced forehead lines or wrinkles can appear. The eyebrows can come to rest at a slightly lower position which may exacerbate heaviness of the upper eyelids.
The individual may have a permanently tired or prematurely aged look. Although this is usually seen in people of middle-age or older, the problem can develop in younger people with genetic predisposition.
Important: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
What is brow lifting?
Whilst Anti-wrinkle injections can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the forehead and help lift the sagging brow to a degree; in some people the brow has drooped to an extent that the upper lid can become “hooded” with the appearance of excess skin above the eyes. The person may look tired and older than their real age.
Brow lifting is a surgical procedure where the tissues of the forehead are lifted to a higher position, raising the eyebrows to give a more youthful and rested appearance.
What does a brow lift operation involve?
In our Perth clinic, brow lift surgery is carried out as a day procedure. Fluid containing local anaesthetic is placed in the brow to reduce patient discomfort as well as reducing bleeding during the operation. The tissues of the forehead are freed through the small incisions in the scalp. The forehead tissues are then lifted to the desired position and fixed in place before the incisions are closed, usually with dissolving stitches.
Brow lifting is frequently combined with other rejuvenating procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and face lift surgery.
How will I feel after brow lift surgery? How quickly will I recover?
Most patients tolerate the procedure extremely well and are allowed to go home within a few hours. Oral pain killers and antibiotics are routinely prescribed after the procedure. Most of the bruising and swelling associated with surgery settles in the first 1-2 weeks and many patients are able to return to normal activities at that stage.
Is brow lifting safe? What are the potential risks?
Fortunately, the risk of significant, long lasting complications in brow lifting surgery is very small. Like any facial surgery, the potential risks include:
- Nerve Injury
- Delayed wound healing
- Under or over correction
With careful patient selection, adherence to pre and post surgical instructions and proper surgical techniques, these potential risks are minimal.
