Brow lift Forehead lift

Brow lift surgery rejuvenates the forehead and eyebrows by compensating for the gradual lowering of the brow that occurs with ageing.

The expression of our faces takes many influences from the appearance around the eyes. Frowning, a sad or happy appearance a rested or tired look are commonly represented in the appearance of the eyebrows.

We are all very aware of these points from early in life, and have the ability to read these facial expressions, whether right or wrong, without having to be taught.

One of the key aspects that needs to be evaluated during the consultation related to forehead lift, is the relationship between the eyebrow, upper eyelid and upper border of the eye socket.

This helps to identify whether the position of the eyebrow is genuinely low, or whether the problem is related to the appearance of the upper eyelid.

Most of the forehead lift surgical interventions today are carried out through keyhole surgery, also known as the endoscopic brow lift or forehead lift.

This operation involves several small access points within the hair bearing skin, some above the forehead and some in the temple regions. With the help of the endoscope, it allows the surgeon to release the tissues of the forehead under magnification.
