A forehead lift is a good option for those who have dropping brows, deep lines on the forehead and between the eyes. This operation pulls the eyebrows into a slightly higher position, opening up the eye area. The muscles that cause the frown between the brows may also be removed.
There are two techniques currently in use – the traditional coronal brow lift which uses a genral or twilight anaesthetic and different types of endoscopic brow lifts.
In the coronal brow lift the incision is made in the natural hairline, running from ear to ear across the top of the head.
With an endoscophic lift the muscles and underlying tissues are released and the eyebrows may also be lifted.
As with a facelift you will be instructed to keep your head elevated and apply cold compresses to reduce swelling and bruising. Swelling and bruising may also affect the cheeks and eyes. You should not take part in any physical activity such as jogging and other sports for several weeks.
