Brow Lift

As we age, the brow droops and extra skin collects in the upper eyelid area. The eyes look heavy and tired, and we can even look angry when we are not. As we unconsciously counter this by raising our brow, we develop permanent wrinkles in the forehead. A brow lift raises the brow to its younger position, opens the eyes and smoothens out furrows and wrinkles of the forehead. The eyes are no longer weighed down by a heavy drape of upper eyelid skin. The eyes appear brighter and more open. You look younger and fresher. Brow lifts are commonly performed at the same time as eyelid surgery as both contribute to rejuvenate the upper eyelid area.

The brow lift procedure

The procedure is an outpatient procedure. Brow lifts can be performed through two incisions placed on either side of the forehead behind the hairline. The soft tissues of the forehead are lifted, redraping the skin smoothly over the upper eyelid and brow area, and raising the eyebrows to the youthful raised position. Recovery is about 2 weeks.
