What is an Upper Brow Lift?

An upper brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate the forehead and eyebrow area. The procedure involves adjusting and tightening the underlying muscles and tissues, while removing excess skin, to smooth the forehead and elevate the eyebrows.

It addresses signs of ageing in the upper face, by lifting sagging brows, reducing forehead wrinkles, and improving frown lines. This results in a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Brow Lift Surgery Procedure

Initial Consultation

During the initial consultation, the patient meets with our doctors to discuss aesthetic goals and concerns. The patient’s facial structure, skin quality, and brow position are assessed, and their medical history is reviewed to ensure suitability for the procedure.

Pre-operative Assessment

This phase may include conducting medical tests and providing pre-surgery instructions. The surgeon outlines the specific approach for the brow lift, tailored to the patient’s individual needs and expectations. Patients are given instructions on how to prepare for the surgery, including guidelines on medication, diet, and other lifestyle adjustments.

Surgical Procedure

The patient is usually given local or general anaesthesia before the procedure. They have the choice between having a traditional and endoscopic brow lift.

Traditional Brow Lift:

  1. Incisions are made across the top of the forehead or along the hairline.
  2. Excess skin is removed, and the forehead skin is lifted, smoothing out wrinkles.
  3. The brow is repositioned for a more youthful appearance.

Endoscopic Brow Lift:

  1. Small incisions are made within the hairline.
  2. An endoscope (a thin tube with a camera) is used to view tissues and muscles.
  3. The forehead tissue is lifted and repositioned with minimal incisions.
  4. This method results in less scarring and a shorter recovery time.
Post-operative Care

After the surgery, patients receive instructions on how to manage discomfort, care for their wounds, and restrict certain activities. Follow-up appointments can help monitor the healing process and assess the results.

Endoscopic brow lifts tend to have a shorter recovery time as opposed to the traditional brow lift, with bruising and swelling clearing within 5 to 6 days.

Advantages of an Upper Brow Lift

The upper brow lift procedure offers several aesthetic and psychological benefits:

  • Rejuvenated Appearance: By lifting sagging brows and smoothing forehead wrinkles, the procedure gives a more youthful and refreshed look.
  • Improved Symmetry: It can correct asymmetrical brows, enhancing facial balance.
  • Reduced Signs of Ageing: The lift helps mitigate age-related changes like drooping brows and deep furrows.
  • Enhanced Eye Area: The procedure can indirectly make the eye area appear more open and alert, improving the overall facial expression.
  • Boosted Confidence: Patients often experience an increase in self-esteem and confidence following the surgery, as their external appearance aligns more closely with their self-image.
  • Customizable Results: The procedure can be tailored to individual patient needs, ensuring results that complement their unique facial features.
  • Long-lasting Outcomes: While not permanent, the results of an upper brow lift can last several years, providing a long-term solution to upper facial ageing.

Ideal Candidates For An Upper Brow Lift

Ideal candidates for an upper brow lift are individuals who:

  • Experience Age-Related Changes: Those showing signs of ageing in the forehead and brow region, such as sagging brows and deep forehead lines.
  • Have Good Skin Elasticity: Suitable candidates should have reasonably good skin elasticity for optimal surgical results.
  • Are in Good General Health: Overall good health is necessary to undergo surgery and for effective healing.
  • Non-smokers: Smoking can hinder the healing process, so non-smokers or those willing to quit temporarily are preferred.
  • Have Realistic Expectations: Have an understanding of the potential outcomes and limitations of the procedure.
  • Seeking Long-term Solutions: Individuals looking for a long-lasting resolution to upper facial ageing.

Results and Longevity of an Upper Brow Lift

The upper brow lift can rejuvenate the appearance of the forehead and eyebrow area. These changes include a more youthful brow position, reduced forehead wrinkles, and an overall refreshed facial appearance. It can also enhance self-image and confidence.

The results of an upper brow lift are durable but not permanent. The effects of the surgery can last several years, depending on factors such as the individual’s skin quality, lifestyle, and natural ageing process. Patients should maintain realistic expectations and understand that while the procedure offers long-term benefits, it does not stop the natural ageing process. Regular follow-up consultations and a healthy lifestyle can help maintain the results for as long as possible.
