BROW LIFT FAQs
Brow Lift is a safe and effective cosmetic surgery that is aimed at raising the position of sagging eyebrows to their higher natural position on the face, and also smoothening the skin on the forehead by getting rid of frown lines and furrows.
Wrinkles on our face are the first signs of aging and also the most obvious. Not only do they make us look older, but our frown lines also make us look tired, angry, or stressed. By surgically removing these with a Brow Lift or Browplasty, you can look decades younger and alive. The Brow Lift surgery will leave you with a smoother forehead and alert, refreshed eyes.
Brow Lift is usually done under general anesthesia or sedation. During the surgery, your plastic surgeon will mark your forehead and make incisions along where the skin is to be lifted.
Depending on the technique used to perform the Forehead Lift, the incision may be just below the hairline and running across the forehead, or there may be several small incisions in the scalp. Through the incisions, the surgeon lifts the underlying skin and tissue, removes excess tissue and skin, and places the remaining skin in position – thus lifting the eyebrows upwards, correcting their droopiness, while also smoothening the forehead. The incisions are then closed. The result is tighter skin on your forehead and lifted eyebrows which make you look more awake, youthful and rejuvenated.
A Brow Lift addresses the concerns of those people whose brows have sagged to a lower position on their face and who have therefore have hooded upper eyelids. If lifting the brows fixes the “hooding” or droopiness of the upper eyelids and you have no other concerns about the look of your eyes, then a Brow Lift may be enough for you.
An Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty or Upper Eyelid Surgery removes excess skin, tissue, fat and muscle between the eyebrow and eyelash, but it does not reposition your eyebrows. Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty addresses concerns of eyebags, fine lines and wrinkles on the lower eyelids. If your concern is sagging eyelids, but not sagging brows, then an Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty alone may be right for you.
You may need both if you have both sagging eyebrows and sagging eyelids. Additionally, you may need both if you want to correct wrinkles on your forehead and also address under-eye bags, wrinkles, and droopy eyelids.
Your plastic surgeon will advise you on what is ideal for you.
Brow Lift is indicated for adult men or women whose brows have sagged lower on their face due to aging or weight loss, resulting in a hooded appearance of their upper eyelids. People who have vertical frown lines between their eyebrows, or horizontal furrows on their forehead can also benefit from a Brow/ Forehead Lift.
The ideal candidate should be a generally healthy person. He or she should not have any medical condition that could interfere with the healing of the wound.
Prior to ensuring your candidature for the Brow Lift, your plastic surgeon will review your medical history and past and present health condition. You will have to discuss the medication you are on, including any herbal supplements.
As a possible Brow Lift candidate, you must have realistic expectations about your resultant appearance after the procedure. You must stop smoking prior to the surgery and after the surgery, as tobacco can slow down the blood flow to the skin and thereby slow down the healing process.
The surgery will show desirable results only on people who are generally healthy and do not have any previous history of having cardiac issues, pulmonary emboli, excessive bleeding, seizures, immunodeficiency disorders, or deep vein thrombosis. People with such conditions are discouraged from undergoing this procedure due to a higher risk of surgical complications.
People who are on certain anti-inflammatory and anticoagulant drugs are also discouraged from undergoing a Brow Lift or Forehead Lift surgery.
The different techniques for performing a Brow/ Forehead Lift are:
Internal Brow Lift : Also called Browpexy, this is a Brow Lift technique only and does not involve the forehead. It is useful for achieving a minimal brow lift at the outside edge of the brow. It uses the same incision as an upper eyelid Blepharoplasty and is usually combined with it.
Direct Brow Lift: This is also a Brow Lift technique only and does not involve smoothening the forehead. It involves making an incision directly above the hairline of the eyebrows and lifting the brow through there.
Open/ Classic/ Traditional Brow Lift: The classic or traditional brow lift is rarely used these days as it is significantly more invasive. The traditional or “open” Brow Lift can be sub-categorized into:
– Pretrichial Brow/ Forehead Lift – For people who have signifcant sagging of the brows and a high hairline, a pretrichial Brow Lift may be used. This involves making an incision across the forehead, just under the hairline, going from temple to temple. Tissue and skin is lifted, excess removed, balance repositioned, and incisions closed. The technique results in a subtle lowering of the hairline too.
– Coronal Brow/ Forehead Lift – This technique is similar to the pretrichial technique, except that the incisions are made 2-3 cms behind the hairline. It is indicated for people with significant drooping of the brows and a low hairline. By making the incision deeper behind the hairline, the hairline is also subtly raised.
Endoscopic Brow/ Forehead Lift: This is the modern approach to a Brow/ Forehead Lift. Using this technique, the plastic surgeon makes 3-5 tiny incisions in the scalp behind the hairline. Then using an endoscope, the surgeon lifts and repositions the tissue, removes exces skin and tissue, and closes the incisions. This procedure is minimally invasive.
Temporal or Limited Incision Brow/ Forehead Lift: This is a limited variation of the Endoscopic Brow Lift and is useful for people who only have lateral drooping of the brows. The incisions are made only at the temples and the skin and tissue is lifted laterally. This technique does not fix frown lines or furrows in the center of the forehead, but will address droopiness at the outer edges of the upper eyelids and smoothening of crows feet.
The technique of Brow Lift used for you will be determined by your surgeon taking into consideration your facial anatomy, the type and extent of correction needed, aesthetic considerations, and other relevant factors.
The cost of Brow Lift in London depends on the following factors:
- Skill and experience of the plastic surgeon
- Standard of the clinic/ hospital where the surgery will be performed
- The technique used for the surgery
- Extent of correction needed
- Whether the procedure is combined with other facial contouring surgeries or procedures
It is advised to get an initial consultation from a specialist plastic surgeon to know the cost applicable to your case and your eligibility for the procedure.
At our accredited clinic in London, an Internal Brow Lift or Browpexy, Direct Brow Lift, and Temporal Brow Lift are mostly performed under local anesthesia or IV sedation. The Endoscopic and Traditional Brow Lifts are usually performed under general anesthesia at an accredited hospital in London.
Most people are able to resume normal activities within 10-14 days. We recommend you schedule at least 2 weeks off from work after your Brow Lift surgery. The complete healing and recovery after the surgery will need more time.
Take note that even after 2 weeks off, you might be required to avoid specific activities until you are fully recovered. Light exercises can be started after 3 weeks. For people whose work involves strenuous physical activities, you’ll need to wait another 1-2 weeks before resuming your normal activities.
Brow Lift is a delicate procedure and must be performed only with an experienced plastic surgeon. In the hands of a skilled plastic surgeon, the procedure is safe, but the following complications may be seen:
Infection Pain Asymmetry Scarring Swelling Temporary or permanent numbness of the brow Hematoma (fluid accumulation under the skin) Temporary headaches Temporary or permanent nerve damage Itchiness around the scalp Altered hairline due to hair loss along the incision Contour irregularities Possibility of revision surgery
Most patients experience pain and discomfort after the surgery when anesthesia effects diminish. You will start to feel comfortable after 2-3 days.
Immediately after the Brow Lift, the incision locations will look red, bruised, uneven, swollen, or discolored, and scarring will also be visible. It is normal to feel some loss of sensation in the treated areas after the Brow Lift. This temporary numbness usually goes away once the part is completely healed.
You will be prescribed antibiotics to avoid infection. During your first week of recovery, you can expect issues with pain and bruising. The pain is managed with prescribed medications and the bruising through cold compresses. You should get plenty of rest during this time.
After the first week of recovery, it is necessary to do a follow-up visit with your plastic surgeon to monitor your progres and to check the incision sites.
You should sleep with your head elevated until the swelling subsides. For the first 3 to 4 weeks, avoid driving, stretching, bending, lifting, or excessive facial movements.
After this period, you will have recovered enough to return to your normal routine as long as it does not involve strenuous physical activity. Pain and and major bruising will have subsided.
It is advised to stay away from all intense physical and athletic activities for at least 4 weeks after the surgery.
It is still best to do follow-up visits with your plastic surgeon for continuing post-surgical care.
Post-surgery, there will be an immediate visible improvement in the shape and appearance of your treated area, though there will be bruising and swelling that may last for 4-6 weeks, though it will sufficiently reduce within 10-14 days to allow you to resume normal activities. The final results from your Brow Lift will typically be visible around 6 months after the procedure.
Brow Lift results are typically long-lasting. However, the aging process, weight changes, injury, or illness can change your treated features in the future. Protecting yourself from sun exposure, following a proper skincare routine, and maintaining a healthy weight are recommended to maintain your results longer.
For best results, strictly follow the care instructions of your plastic surgeon, prior to, and in the aftermath of the surgery.
