Brow lift or Browplasty, also known as forehead lift is used to elevate a drooping eyebrow. The first documented medical discussion about brow lift was written in 1910 by a German surgeon, Erich Lexer.
Skin tissue loses it’s elasticity when you age and the distance between your eyelid and eyebrow shortens. In this case you use browplasty to raise soft tissue and the skin of forehead and brow to improve appearance of forehead.
Before the surgery, It’s better to make an appointment with your surgeon to discuss the expected outcomes and review your medical background. You have to avoid certain medications like Aspirin and stop smoking a few weeks before the surgery.
Depending on your circumstances and the expected out comes, the surgeon will remove the excess skin and tighten the underlying tissue.
The surgical technique also depends on the patient’s expected outcomes, sex, age and physical attributes.
Since the advent of the hugely popular wrinkle remover, Botox (Dysport in the United Kingdom and Europe) many consumers have eschewed the invasive surgery altogether, opting for Botox injections every four to six months to get the same results. Botox is also used after some forehead lift procedures to increase the effects of the surgeries.
Endoscopic surgery is often employed in forehead lifts. An endoscope is a surgical system with thin, pencil-sized arms that are inserted through three to five incisions about 3/8 of an inch long. One of the instrument’s arms is a lighted camera that displays what it sees under the patient’s skin on a television monitor. Other arms on the Endoscope carry actual surgical tools that perform cutting, or grasping functions. The surgeon watches the television monitor to guide his movements.
Full recovery takes between 10 -14 days, it’s suggested to have someone to take care of you the first few days. Rest with your head elevated and apply cold compress to avoid swelling. If you were in pain try to contact your physician and only take the recommended pain killers. You may have to avoid daily routines for a few days, ask your specialist when it is OK to resume daily activities.
