The brow is an essential part of a beautiful, well-structured face.
Despite this, few people know that the upper half of your face ages approximately a decade faster than the lower half!
That’s why your brow is often an area you should pay particular attention to.
Simply raising your eyebrows can eliminate the angry, sad or tired expression that we naturally
develop over time.
This straightforward procedure is hardly invasive at all. It improves the lateral upper eyelid hoods which hang over the outside corner of your eyes.
Better still, this procedure softens your horizontal forehead wrinkles and the scowl lines between your eyebrows to give you a natural, youthful appearance.
A Forehead Lift is performed in a minimally invasive manner at Australia Plastic Surgery.
Think of it as a permanent form of anti-wrinkle.
Planning your surgery
uncover the best solutions to treat sagginess, asymmetry, skin quality and wrinkles.
Your surgeon will also examine the position of your hairline, eyebrow and upper eyelids, explaning what he finds.
Once he has completed his examination he will then discuss your general health to ensure there are no complications. Many people find this approach unnecessary, however, it is part of Australia Plastic Surgery’s diligent approach to any procedure.
Finally, your surgeon will recommend the most appropriate procedure and explain it thoroughly. He will also talk you through your preparation for the operation and how to optimise the healing process after surgery.
Naturally, he will take the time to answer any questions and most importantly, discuss your expectations.
The procedure is quite straight forward and can be done under a local or general anaesthetic – the choice is yours.
A small, 5 centimetre incision is made at the top of your head behind the hair-line, leaving a minor scar that is hidden in your hair. The skin and fascia on the brow, head and around the eyes are then raised appropriately and fixed in their new position.
The procedure will take approximately 60 minutes and you will be able to go home afterwards.
The incision in the hairline is dressed with an antibiotic cream. There may be some mild pain, swelling and bruising, but this can be improved with ordinary pain-killers and elevation of the head. Some patients may develop black eyes, but these also clear up in a few days.
You will need rest for 1-2 days followed by light duties, and you can resume normal activities within 10-14 days. The stitches may need to be removed after around 5-7 days.
When you return home you will be given a card with the details of your follow up visit, the phone number of our clinic and the personal number of your surgeon. And you can contact us day or night if you have any concerns or questions.
