What is brow lift surgery?
With age, you may find that those lines that run along your forehead become more obvious and more permanent. A brow lift, or eyebrow lift surgery, will help to remove your wrinkles, and give you a more youthful appearance again. Not only will that enhance the way you look, it should also greatly boost your self-confidence.
There are several cosmetic surgery treatments that can make your eyes look more youthful. Read all about them in our blog entry: The Eyes Have It: How Cosmetic Surgery Can Perk Up Your Baby Blues.
As appealing as it might be to use cosmetic surgery to turn the clock back, you should always make sure you chat through any questions you might have with one of our consultant surgeons or a member of our team of friendly advisors before you commit to a brow lift. These advisors are here to help answer any questions you have, without applying any kind of sales pressure, so that you can be 100% confident with your decision if you do eventually proceed with surgery.
Your consultant surgeon will usually make a cut from ear to ear, just behind the hairline, to make sure that any scarring will not be visible. The skin will be tightened and excess fatty tissue removed before the cut is closed with stitching and then bandaged. This operation will usually take place under general anaesthetic and you will need to stay in hospital for one night afterwards.
Take a full week off work to give yourself plenty of time to recover from the surgery, and then try to avoid strenuous activity for another fortnight after that. The bandage should be ready to remove after a couple of days, although you should still be careful washing your hair to begin with. Obviously, your consultant surgeon will talk you through all this before you leave hospital so you know exactly what you can do and what you can’t immediately after the operation. The area is likely to be tender for the first few days, but this should soon pass and you can use painkillers to relieve any discomfort.
There’s nothing worse than unexpected charges that you don’t find out about until after the event, and that’s why we make sure you know the full cost of your surgery before you make the decision to proceed. Our inclusive packages cover all the hospital charges for your stay, your consultant’s fees for the operation and one-follow-up consultation.
