As well as getting the greatest exposure to the elements, the forehead allows us to express a great deal of emotion.
That’s why this area, is one of the first to show signs of ageing. Even when you’re feeling happy you may appear to frown or look tired and worried.
Our aesthetic plastic surgeon, Dr Eddie Cheng draws from both reconstructive and cosmetic disciplines to deliver natural results, using minimally invasive techniques.
The brow lift removes excess skin via two relatively small incisions on the hairline to gently elevate the brow into a more youthful position without resulting in the surprised expression of the earlier brow lift techniques. While botox can work as a temporary fix to the brow and forehead area, it does have limitations. A brow lift is a longer term approach to address the skin and muscles of the forehead, for a more youthful look.
Key Questions about Brow Lift
Will a brow lift get rid of the deep wrinkles between my eyes?
During the course of a brow lift, it is possible to disrupt the muscles that cause the wrinkles between the eyes. Unfortunately, this function cannot be completely eliminated. By weakening it, however, the deep wrinkles are often improved, but probably never erased.
What do I need to do to prepare for surgery?
In preparation for the surgical procedure, it is important to follow the preoperative instructions given to you by your surgeon. Your preparation will vary slightly depending on the procedure to be performed.
How much pain will I have after my brow lift?
Normally, patients do not complain of significant discomfort after the brow lift. Occasionally, they describe symptoms of a headache, which are normally short-lived. Any discomfort is normally well handled by the postoperative pain management prescribed by your surgeon.
