With age skin on the brows and forehead loses its elasticity leading to tired looking eyes or heavy looking upper lids. These issues could be easily addressed with a forehead or eyebrow lift.
A brow lift is aimed at smoothing the forehead, reducing frown lines, and elevating the position of the eyebrow line and removing excess forehead skin to achieve a younger, more refreshed look. There are two techniques for a brow lift – Open brow lift and an endoscopic brow lift, our surgeons at Divine Proportions will suggest the most appropriate technique for your specific case after a thorough examination.

 

  • Brow lift typically requires the administration of a general aesthetic and is an outpatient procedure. Actual procedure can last between 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  • An appropriate technique is selected based on the position of the eyebrows, amount of excess upper eyelid skin and the height of the hairline, in general the procedure involves making incision across the top of the scalp just above the hairline. Through these incisions, the muscles that cause frown lines are modified and any excess skin or tissues are removed and then the eyebrows are lifted to a more youthful level.
  • A less invasive method of brow lift is done through endoscopy where an endoscope is inserted through several tiny incisions in the scalp and the muscles and tissues are altered and the brows are then repositioned.

A typical convalescence period for a brow lift surgery is around 2-3 weeks

  • Week 1 – you will experience temporary numbness, swelling and bruising and possibly some itching of the scalp, however this is a normal part of recovery.
  • Week 2 – by the end of the first week, sutures will be removed and you may return to work however strenuous activities such as lifting weights should be avoided.
  • Week 3 –numbness of the scalp is non-existent however you might experience itching of the scalp as the nerves heal.

You will be completely healed within a month of the surgery.

To achieve best results it is important to follow all the post operative care instructions given by your surgeon.

  • For two weeks following your surgery ensure that you sleep with your head elevated and do not sleep with your face down.
