With age, skin naturally begins to look tired with lines setting in on the forehead acting as a clear indicator of your age. Sagging eyebrows are one of the main concerns for elders, and a brow lift can do wonders for restoring a more youthful appearance above the eyes.
The surgeon will usually make an incision just behind the hairline to minimise any visible scarring, roughly from ear to ear. The skin will then be tightened to the required degree, and in some cases, tissue, muscle, and skin will be manipulated or removed. Once complete, the incision will be closed and then bandaged. The surgery itself usually takes between one and two hours to complete.
A brow lift will usually take place under general anaesthetic, which means you will need to stay in the hospital overnight. When it's time for you to leave the hospital, you will be given a follow-up appointment with your consultant, and/or the dressing clinic for the removal of any stitches - together with any medication prescribed.
A brow lift presents many advantages for those who choose to undergo the treatment. Some of the benefits include:
It is recommended that you arrange at least a week off work in order to allow the brow area to heal. While the bandage should be ready to be removed after a couple of days – the area will be tender during this time but should heal quickly. Strenuous activity should be avoided for a minimum of three weeks after undergoing endobrow surgery.
