Brow or forehead lift is done through three 1,5cm incisions in the hair bearing scalp by an endoscopic technique. It can be performed under local anaesthesia plus sedation or combined with a facelift operation under sedation or general anaesthesia.
The muscles responsible for the over active frown expression are weakened and the brow is lifted to maintain a natural aesthetic appearance avoiding a surprised look. The patient stays in hospital overnight and stitches are removed between the 8th and the 10th day post-operatively.
You will remain in hospital for one day and your recovery will take approximately ten days.
