A brow lift or forehead lift reverses the effects of gravity and tightens the soft tissues of the forehead to restore a more youthful contour to your forehead skin, upper eyelids and eyebrows. Also known as forehead lift or browplasty.
There are various brow-lift methods, which involve different length incisions in different locations and, sometimes, an endoscope. A youthful brow at rest is positioned above the orbital rim, with a gradual arch laterally, and the lateral end or ‘tail’ of the brow located higher than the medial end.
As one ages, it is common for the brow to assume a flat or horizontal position. If a sagging brow inhibits your facial expression, a brow lift is a time-tested method for rejuvenating the upper third of your face.
Every year, thousands of people undergo successful brow-lift surgery and are pleased with the results.
What is brow lift surgery?
If you are concerned about the appearance of lines and wrinkles and feel that a permanent solution is needed then brow lift surgery may be right for you.
Brow lift surgery with Spire Cosmetic Surgery smoothes out frown lines and wrinkles on your forehead and between your eyes to give you a more youthful, less serious appearance.
Also known as a forehead lift, this cosmetic procedure raises the brows and lifts the eyelids to open up the area around the eyes.
When to Consider a Brow Lift?
Sagging or low eyebrow position creates a tired, sad or grumpy appearance
You have deep horizontal creases across the forehead
You have frown lines or furrows between the eyebrows or across the top of your nose
You have excess skin or fatty tissue hanging over your eyes
How is a Brow lift performed?
Brow lift surgery can be performed in several ways, and your consultant surgeon will discuss the best option for you. With a coronal brow lift, excess skin is removed through a cut across the top of your scalp, hidden within your hair.
The muscles that cause frown lines are shortened and your eyebrows are lifted.
Alternatively keyhole surgery can be performed using special surgical instruments inserted through tiny cuts in your hairline. The muscles that cause frown lines can be reduced and there is minimal scarring.
Each method can be performed under general anaesthetic, which means you will be asleep during the procedure, or under local anaesthetic when the area will be numb but you will be awake.
You’ll usually be able to return home later the same day, and will need to plan some time off work to rest and recover.
