Brow Lift Surgery (For Men)
A Brow Lift Procedure, also known as an Endoscopic Brow Lift ('Endo Brow') is designed to reposition the eyebrow, often in conjunction with an Upper Blepharoplasty. Ageing changes in the face are reflected by the position of the eyebrow. With time, the brow drops from its normal position to give the appearance of tiredness and lowering of the upper eyelids. A Brow Lift Procedure aims to lift the position of the forehead and brow in order to enhance the results of an Upper Blepharoplasty.
Mr Price will assess you carefully to determine whether you need a Brow Lift in addition to a Blepharoplasty, or whether a Blepharoplasty alone is needed. It is unusual to need only a Brow Lift without reference to the upper eyelid.
The Brow Lift Procedure takes place through small incisions high in the hairline. The tissues of the forehead are lifted from beneath all the way to the eyebrow. It is common to remove the muscle between the eyebrows through this approach, to decrease furrowing afterwards. The tissues are then retracted backwards and held in position against the bone of the forehead. This is usually by special sutures under the skin, but occasionally small screws are needed – these are removed after a week, in outpatients.
After the operation there will be stitches or staples in the incisions in the hair and your head will be bandaged. There will be some swelling, but you will notice more the swelling from your Blepharoplasty operation.
The operation is usually very successful. Recognised problems are changes in the sensation over the scalp, caused by injury to the nerves as they pass from the eyebrow backwards.
