Deciding to change the way you look through Cosmetic Surgery takes courage and a lot of consideration. It is important that your decision to have a procedure is considered carefully.
There are some possible risks, as with all surgery, which will be explained to you at the time of your consultation. This is an opportunity to discuss your treatment and allow your consultant to ascertain your expectations and discuss the results that can be achieved. In order for you to make an informed choice it is vital that you understand all aspects of the procedure and all possible outcomes.
With age, it is not uncommon for the skin above our eyes to start to droop giving the face an older and tired look. Brow lift surgery lifts the area directly above the eye, opening up the eye area and making the face look younger. Brow lift surgery is often performed for purely cosmetic reasons however, drooping brows and upper eye lids can affect vision in the most extreme of cases and this can be a quick and simple way to rectify the situation.
The eye brow lift procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic in hospital. It involves lifting the brow itself and tightening the muscles which have been stretched over time, as well as tightening any loose skin in the area and reducing excess fatty tissue. There are two types of brow lift surgery and your surgeon will decide which is best for you
With the 'open' eye lift surgery method the incision is hidden just inside your hair line or a few centimetres behind the hair line. Selected muscles and excess skin may be removed to lift the brow position and improve the appearance of wrinkles on the brow. Once the incision has been made the surgeon will carefully separate the skin on the upper part of the face from the underlying tissue before working to reduce or tighten the muscles. The skin is then stretched and stitched or clipped in place, within any excess skin removed.
Endoscopic or minimal-scar brow lift is performed using a fibre optic camera inserted via small incisions in the hair line. This is attached to a television screen allowing the surgeon to operate on the muscles and fatty tissue behind the hairline. The eyebrows are lifted and held in place with stitches behind the hairline and the incisions are either stitched or clipped.
The best candidates are people who have sagging of the brows due to age, or congenitally low brow. Brow lift surgery is also helpful for those who want to minimise horizontal forehead creases, frown lines between the brows, or even horizontal creases along the top of the nose. Both men and women are suitable candidates for the eye brow lift procedure.
Following surgery you will notice some swelling and bruising, this is normal. Do not apply make-up directly over incisions and delay showering or washing your hair for at least four days. Sutures are removed and wound checked 5 - 10 days after surgery. The surgeon who performed your surgery will see you after 6 weeks for a follow-up assessment and as often as required until you are fully recovered. It is vital that you attend all necessary post-operative appointments. It is advisable to take one to two weeks off work and avoid strenuous exercise for 3 to 4 weeks.
