AESTHETIC EYELID SURGERY / BLEPHAROPLASTY - MORE INFORMATION
Removing bags under the eyes and tightening up the skin can help to make your face look more rejuvenated, rested and more alert.
The brow lift operation is performed under general anaesthetic and takes between one and two hours to complete depending on the technique used. There are two types of brow lift surgery (outlined below) and the one chosen by the surgeon for you will depend on your skin type, the condition of your skin and where your hairline is.
Open Brow Lift
If the open brow lift is the most appropriate for you, the surgeon will make an incision from one ear, along or slightly back from the hairline to your other ear. Please note that for bald patients or those with a receding hair line, the incision can usually be hidden in a natural forehead crease. 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 Brow Lift
This brow lift procedure sees the surgeon making three to five small incisions in various locations on the scalp through which a thin plastic tube with a tiny camera at one end is inserted. The images gathered from the camera are relayed live to a screen in the theatre and this allows the surgeon to operate on the muscles and fatty tissue behind the hairline. The eyebrows are lifted and held in place with stitches, or temporary screws behind the hairline and the incisions are either stitched or clipped.
