Forehead Lift (Brow Lift) for correcting vision
Posted on Mar 05, 2016
If you feel bothered by frown lines, wrinkles and other signs of ageing in the forehead and around your brow, you may be a good candidate for a forehead lift surgery. Also known as a brow lift or browplasty, forehead lift is a plastic surgery procedure which can improve the appearance of your forehead by tightening excess loose skin and modifying drooping brows.

An overview of forehead lift (brow lift) procedure

Individuals who are looking to remove the deepest forehead furrows and frown lines or reposition a sagging brow may benefit from a forehead lift. As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity, brows begin to sag and expression lines begin to develop across the forehead and in the brow region. The inevitable effects of aging including frown lines, wrinkling across the forehead, low or sagging of brows and heaviness of the eyebrows, often make us appear sad, tired, surprised or angry, even when we are not. These unwanted facial expressions can be changed by surgically removing part of the muscles and tissues responsible for wrinkling in the forehead and repositioning the scalp.

Forehead lift (brow lift) procedure explained

To lift the forehead, a cosmetic surgeon tightens the loose skin of the forehead and excises the excess through a surgical cut behind the hairline running across the top of the head. In some cases, the incision is placed just above the eyebrows.

To change the location and shape of the eyebrows, the cosmetic surgeon uses a temporal lift where an incision is made at the temple area of the scalp. Working through this incision, the healthcare provider pulls up the lateral half of eyebrow in order to raise the brows to a more youthful position.

A forehead lift also eliminates crow's feet at the sides of the eyes and the creases that develop between the eyes or glabellar area.

Other details about forehead lift (brow lift) procedure

The forehead lift surgery is performed either under heavy intravenous sedation, twilight anaesthesia or general anaesthesia and the whole operation typically takes one to two hours to complete. Other facial rejuvenation procedures that are opted to be performed in conjunction with a forehead lift include the eyelid surgery to rejuvenate ageing eyes and a facelift to enhance aesthetics of the mid and lower face and neck regions.

Who is fit for forehead lift (brow lift) procedure?

Forehead lift surgery is a good option for individuals who are physically healthy, are non-smokers and have a positive outlook and realistic understanding of the procedure and its outcome. This procedure is usually recommended for the people between age forty and sixty-five, the surgery may be done at an earlier age though.

Discomfort associated with forehead lift (brow lift) procedure

It's possible that you experience some temporary discomfort which can be controlled with proper care medications such as: 

Risks associated with forehead lift (brow lift) procedure

There are some risks and potential complications associated with forehead lift. These include:
  • Unfavourable scarring
  • Bleeding
  • Blood clots
  • Persistent pain
  • Infection
  • Anaesthesia risks
  • Poor wound healing
  • Facial nerve injury
  • Eyebrow asymmetry
  • Irregular skin contour
  • Revisional surgery is possible, in case brows are not completely symmetrical

Recovery process after forehead lift (brow lift) procedure

Bandages wrapped around your forehead to minimize swelling and bruising after the forehead lift are removed within one to three days. The stitches used to close the incisions are usually removed within seven to ten days. Most patients are able to resume normal activities within one to two weeks after the surgery. However, you are advised to avoid rigorous activities for a longer period of time. It is important to follow your cosmetic surgeon’s instructions on how to care for yourself after the surgery for the complete success of your surgery.
