How is A Brow Lift Performed?

Pre procedure : Initially, the surgeon analyses the structure of the patient’s eyebrows and discusses their preferences and expectations. The patient usually has to make a few lifestyle changes for few days prior to the surgery, which include abstaining from smoking, alcohol and consumption of certain medicines.

Patients with very long hair might have to cut it short so that it does not cause obstruction during the surgery and patients with very short hair are advised to grow it long enough to hide the scars caused after the surgery.

The Procedure : The procedure is performed under the effect of general anaesthesia.Traditionally, the brow lift surgery is performed by making large incisions in the hairline. The excess skin, which was causing the eyebrows to droop is then removed and the remaining skin is tightened back to its place. Once the skin has been repositioned, the incision is then sutured shut.

A more modern method is the endoscopic brow lift, in which several small incisions are made in the hairline. Working through these incisions, the excess skin is removed with the help of narrow surgical telescopes that allow for visualisation of the surgical dissection. The brow is then lifted and repositioned. The incisions are sealed with medical staples or stitches.

The area of operation is then cleansed of blood and covered by a soft sterilised bandage. The stitches or staples can be removed after a week.
