Reasons for surgery

People choose to have an eyebrow or forehead lift to smooth out the wrinkles in the upper part of the face. They may also wish to lift their eyebrows to their normal position if they feel they have dropped as part of the aging process.

In some cases an eyebrow lift is combined with upper blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) in order to achieve the best possible post-operative cosmetic effect.

The Procedure

The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. There are several ways this surgery may be done. Traditionally the incisions are made in the scalp: larger incisions – in the temporal area, smaller – in the vertex. The surgeon will manoeuvre tissue and remove segments of muscles and skin that are responsible for wrinkles or a deep frown. In order to achieve permanent fixation, tissues of the forehead are fixated on the vertex using screws which are removed in 10-12 days.

At the end of the surgery, one or several suction drains are introduced for wound drainage.
