Brow Lift

Brow Lift (Forehead Lift or Browplasty)
The forehead lift is also known as brow lift because it reshapes and lifts the (sagging) brows that have fallen due to age or heredity, creating a tired, sad or grumpy appearance.

Techniques
There are two methods:
• Open brow lift: an incision is made across the scalp from ear to ear.
• Endoscopic brow lift (the most common one): in this case, three small incisions (about 2cm) are made in the scalp. By using an endoscope (a thin tube with camera on the end), the skin and the muscles are removed from the skull and are replaced with the use of special absorbable materials, which hold the tissues at the new position without skin removal.

How Long Does a Brow Lift Last?
This question is quite difficult to be answered because everyone has different skin and tissues quality as well as different habits (sun exposure, smoking).
Unfortunately, the ‘real-time clock’ does not stop to work and the patient continues to age even after the surgery.
Nevertheless, the patient looks younger, more relaxed and "rejuvenated" even after 10-15 years.

What Type of Anesthesia is Used for a Brow Lift?
A brow lift procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia.

Are There Scars After a Brow Lift?
Yes, but the scars are inconspicuous because they are small and are well hidden in the hair.

Is Brow Lift a Painful Procedure?
No, it’s not painful, but the patients experience a mild numbness that improves with time. However, there is swelling, especially the first 24 hours after surgery that begins to subside gradually in the next postoperative days.

When Will The Patient Be Able to Return to Work - Everyday Activities?
Usually, in 1 week.
