The brow region can show signs of ageing, including wrinkles across the forehead, drooping eyebrows, deep frown lines (vertical creases between the eyebrows) and hooded eyelids – these can all make a person appear tired, sad or angry.
Brow Lift Surgery with Mr Gary Kode of Launceston Plastic Surgery Unit addresses these signs of ageing by removing excess tissue and tightening skin and muscles in the area.
People with inherited conditions such as a low, heavy brow or furrowed lines above the nose can also benefit from this procedure.
Mr Kode may recommend performing a Brow Lift together with a Facelift, Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) and Rhinoplasty for a more complete result. Incisions are commonly made within the hairline to conceal scarring. Keyhole surgery (using an Endoscope) is another technique, which results in even fewer scars. Overall, a Brow Lift can restore a refreshed, more alert expression to your face.
Following surgery, your head will be bandaged for three days to keep the wounds covered. Initial wound healing can take one to two weeks, staples are removed after two weeks. You should be able to return to work after a week. You cannot lift anything heavy for 3 weeks. Any bruising around the eyes can be covered up with cosmetics. After several weeks, swelling and scarring should fade and your final results will be visible after several months.
