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.
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.
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.
Fortunately, the risk of significant, long lasting complications in brow lifting surgery is very small. Like any facial surgery, the potential risks include:
With careful patient selection, adherence to pre and post surgical instructions and proper surgical techniques, these potential risks are minimal.
Most people opting for Brow lift Surgery are also candidates for some other cosmetic procedures like eye lid surgery, face lift, neck lifts and skin resurfacing. At Medaesthetics® we offer our signature make-over packages, for patients opting for more than one procedure.
For the appropriate patient, brow lifting can give very pleasing, long-term results. It can be particularly effective when combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures. With careful planning and attention to detail a less tired, more youthful appearance can be achieved.

The practice of aesthetic medicine and surgery is as much an art as it is a science. The aesthetic sense of a clinician in evaluating a patient is as important as his or her clinical skills. At Medisculpt®, our philosophy is to artistically enhance your appearance in a way that stresses elegance over glamour.
Every cosmetic procedure carries risk. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
