A very popular cosmetic surgery operation is the forehead lifting or brow lifting. The forehead lift or the so-called brow lift restores the smoothness of the forehead skin. Repetitive contraction of the forehead muscles produces a furrowed brow and lines. These creases usually become obvious when the skin has aged and lost its elasticity. The brow lift reduces the creases in the area of the forehead, and improves the frown lines; but most importantly, the cosmetic surgery of the forehead tend to restore the shape and the natural position of your eyebrows as well as reducing the saggy and excess skin hanging around your eyes.
Who Undergoes a Forehead Lift?
Forehead lift in Manchester or in London is popular cosmetic surgery procedure with any person who is bothered with the signs of aging on their forehead. Our experience shows that, it is particularly people between 50 to 65 years old who request Brow lift when they start to notice the furrows on their forehead. Cosmetically, for men, it is normal that the position of the eyebrow is lower than for women. Therefore, it is known that drooping eyebrows cause more problems for men. The sagginess of the eyebrows, does affect the upper eyelids, not only changing the look of the eyes, but also reducing peripheral vision.
Consultation for a Forehead Lift
Like with any cosmetic surgery procedure, whether surgical or no surgical, a private consultation is needed before proceeding with a forehead lift or brow lift. During your consultation with a Dr A. Mounir, you need to discuss your cosmetic expectations of a Brow lift. It is important to be aware that a forehead lift is invasive cosmetic surgery. The goal is to create a smooth area on the forehead. The muscles and soft tissue of the forehead will be dealt with. This means, these structures may need altering or removing during the procedure that will require you to be sleeping under general anesthesia or sedation.
There are two types of forehead lift or brow lift procedures that the cosmetic plastic surgeon can use. These are the classic (so-called: coronal) and endoscopic brow lift. We recommend the classic or coronal forehead lift for clearly aged forehead and eyebrow furrows or wrinkles, as it provides more drastic restoration than the endoscopic brow lift, which is less invasive. The operation for a classic brow lift takes normally about 2 hours and will be performed at the Bridgewater hospital in Manchester or Highgate Hospital in London.
