How can a brow lift help?
The effect of a lowering of the brow area can be profound.
Lowered brows can signal to others that you are tired or angry when you are feeling quite the opposite.
This disconnect between the way that you look and the way that you feel can have a negative effect on the quality of your interactions with others.
Brow lift surgery can restore a wide-eyed expression to your face and smooth away forehead creases and frown lines.
What does brow lift surgery involve?
During your operation, Elena will make four small incisions near your hairline and two further cuts beneath your eyebrows.
Elena will release the muscles causing your forehead lines and the lines between your eyebrows.
She will lift your brow, trimming away excess skin.
Your surgery will be performed under general anaesthetic.
What is the recovery process after a brow lift?
After brow lift surgery, there will be bruising and swelling around your face and head. Remaining in an upright position as much as possible will encourage this swelling to disperse.
Patients need to stay in hospital overnight to receive the appropriate aftercare.
Full recovery from your brow lift will take several weeks and you will have regular checkups with Elena.
You can always contact the clinic for advice if you have concerns between visits.
What is the best age to have a brow lift?
Most patients who consult Elena about a brow lift are between 40 and 60 years old.
However, she also has younger patients with a genetic predisposition to a lowered brow, forehead creases and frown lines.
Elena provides stunning results and a dramatically improved appearance to all her patients, whatever their age.
How long will the benefits of surgery last?
Your brow lift will rejuvenate your appearance, but plastic surgery cannot stop the ageing process. Eventually, the brow area will show visible signs of ageing again.
It is impossible to say how long you will be able to enjoy the result of the procedure as this can depend on the quality of your skin, your general health, and your age when you first have brow lift surgery.
Sun damage and other aggravating factors like smoking will age your skin faster and should be avoided to preserve your fresh-faced and youthful appearance.
Are there any alternatives to brow surgery?
Elena will advise you about any alternative procedures that she thinks may be appropriate for you.
Other surgeries to improve the brow area include eyelid surgery called a blepharoplasty to correct drooping upper eyelids.
Can I combine this surgery with other procedures?
It is common for a brow lift to be part of a face and neck lift, an overall rejuvenation procedure that transforms the appearance of an ageing face.
What will happen during my initial consultation?
Your first consultation with Elena is vital to your plastic surgery journey. Elena takes a complete medical history from each patient as she needs to assess your health status before surgery.
Elena will want to know why you want to have brow lift surgery and advise you if she thinks any other treatments or procedures would be more suitable for your individual needs.
Elena likes to provide patients with full details of the surgery and recovery. She also ensures that your expectations of what surgery can achieve are realistic.
How much does brow surgery cost?
Depending on your location, the initial consultation fee is between £200 and £250.
The total treatment cost will be discussed at your initial consultation.
