Overview of

Forehead Lift (Brow lift)

in Thailand

A forehead lift, or as it's more commonly known, the brow lift, is a form of cosmetic surgery that lifts the skin around the eyes. By doing this, a person can look younger and rejuvenated. Browlifts correct any issues that may have been caused by aging or trauma, such as dropped eyebrows, lines and furrows.

Through this procedure, a person's facial features are restored by reducing the negative side-effects associated with aging, such as looking tired, stressed or angry.

Goals of

Forehead Lift (Brow lift)

Brow lifts reduce creasing and lines that naturally occur in the face over time. It is mainly used to treat areas like your forehead and between your eyebrows, as these areas see the most creases and lines.

The creases and lines are removed by repositioning a person’s eyebrow slightly. This results in a person looking more alert, rejuvenated and youthful.

 

Specific goals include:

  • to lift drooping or dropped eyebrows. A person’s brows are considered drooping if they are partially covering your upper eyelid.
  • reposition the eyebrows to create a more youthful and energetic look.
  • reducing the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles across the forehead, nose, eyes and across the gap between your eyebrows.

  • elevates eyebrows to give an energetic, youthful appearance.
  • reduces lines and wrinkles, which are caused by stress and aging, to increase the appearance of good health, happiness, and friendliness.

Cons

How it works:

Medical illustration of forehead lift (brow lift)

During a brow lift, the muscles and tissue in a person's face are altered or removed. These specific muscles and tissues are responsible for causing wrinkles, so altering them makes a person’s skin look smoother, especially around the forehead.

At the same time it can alter the appearance of a person’s eyebrows by elevating them and reducing any frown lines.

There are two techniques a doctor will use when performing a brow lift:

  1. Minimally Invasive Brow Lift Surgery: This is done by making tiny incisions in several places including in and around the hairline above the brow or around the middle of your forehead. This technique reduces recovery time and generally causes less discomfort, this is because less damage is caused to your surrounding tissue, muscle and organs. This is because unlike open surgery, the incisions made are smaller and the tools are threaded around muscles, meaning they are not cut or displaced.
  2. Open Surgery/Coronal Brow Lift: This option revolves around making a single, long incision that runs from ear to ear and follows the path of your hairline. The lift occurs when excess skin is removed from a person’s scalp. The end result is a smooth forehead and lifted eyebrows. Having open surgery means a longer healing process and, because of its invasive nature, pain. This is due to the long, continuous incision, and the amount of cutting and muscle displacement involved. However, despite the longer recovery time and pain, open surgery is often considered safer and yields better results.

Prior to surgery, your doctor will discuss options with you. The end results, recovery time and levels of discomfort will be determined by a patient's age, medical history, health and preference. 

Research the different types of brow lift and advocate for the one you think might suit you best, whilst taking your doctor's advice and recommendations into account. The procedure can be performed using local or general anesthesia (or sedation) and can take between 1 to 2 hours.

Preparation before

Forehead Lift (Brow lift)

Pre - treatment

Prepare for a brow lift by:

  • giving detailed and accurate answers when asked about medical history, any allergies you may have or any medication you may be taking. Having a list with this information is a good idea, as it is more accurate and quicker to process.
  • get all the recommended testing done. Which tests you get will depend on factors like age, health, and which procedure you’re having done. These may include things like x-rays and blood tests.
  • you may be asked to lose some excess weight. This can be achieved through a diet plan and targeted exercising.
  • no eating or drinking prior to surgery. This reduces the risk of you choking on your stomach contents when using anesthesia. The time limit on this depends on your procedure, but be sure to do as directed, or your surgery may be canceled for your safety.
  • if you smoke, try quitting, even if only temporarily, as this can help improve the healing process.
  • take medication as directed by your doctor. This could mean taking new medication or temporarily stopping current ones. This can include forms of painkillers, blood thinners or any herbal remedies you may be taking.

Recovery after

Post - treatment

Immediate recovery will take up to 7 to 10 days depending on the type of brow lift you have. You can go back to work but not do anything to strenuous.

Bruising and swelling will take 2 to 3 weeks to reduce and clear. Whilst you’re healing, and for a few months after, limit your sun exposure. Reducing your UV ray’s intake and avoiding tanning yields the best results.

On average the effects of a brow lift lasts anywhere between 5 to 10 years, depending on how well you take care of your skin.

  • swelling and bruising.
  • loss of feeling.
  • headaches.

FAQs:

Forehead Lift (Brow lift)

Who are the best candidates for Brow Lifts?
Brow lifts are typically performed between the ages of 40 and 60 to reduce signs of aging. Anybody in their 20’s and up can be eligible.

It depends on how prominent a person's furrows and frown lines are, which is determined by muscle use and stress levels. It is also suitable for candidates that deal with inherited conditions as it can make a face look more balanced and lifted.

Often a brow lift is performed at the same time as a face lift or blepharoplasty. As this can achieve the best results.

Other reasons a person may want a brow lift:

  • your sagging eyebrows or a furrowed brow are often mistaken for sadness or anger, and you want surgery to fix it.
  • your upper eyelid is obscured because your soft tissues have lost their integrity. This can be fixed by treating the frown lines between your eyes.
  • a brow lift might be something for you if, when moving your eyebrow around you can hide excess skin in your top eyelid



How long will my results last?
Six months after surgery your results should be evident. You’ll have had plenty of time to heal and you should be enjoying your new look.

The aging process will continue though, so expect some slight regression as time goes along. Your wrinkles and frown lines should never get as deep again. 

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and using sensible levels of sun protection will ensure your brow lift keeps up appearances for as long as possible.



How visible will the incisions be?
During the procedure your incisions are tactfully placed, with the aim that they end up being naturally camouflaged. This is mostly achieved by hiding incisions in the hairline.

If a patient has no hair, or their hairline is receding, then the incisions are created in skin creases or in areas that are not at risk of further hair loss.
