Dr. Romy performs brow lifts often in combination with other procedures. Many people will benefit greatly from mid-face and lower face rejuvenation alone, however one of the great benefits of a brow lift is the permanent, effective result that can be achieved with one treatment, versus ongoing treatment with neuromodulators like Botox.

Brow Lift Procedure

A brow lift procedure will take approximately 1-2 hours and is completed under twilight anaesthesia or local anesthetic. Dr. Romy will create an incision that sits behind the hairline at the top of your head to allow for lifting of the forehead skin and access to the underlying tissue.

Coronal Brow Lift

The coronal brow lift is considered the standard approach and offers the most permanent and dramatic results, though it does require a more extensive surgical incision. In certain cases, this type of forehead lift is necessary to do the extensive work and removal of excess tissue that a patient desires. The long incision is made behind the hairline, and may reach from one ear to the other.

Endoscopic brow lift

An endoscopic brow lift uses several small incisions behind the hairline to insert an endoscope, or viewing device, into the underlying tissue. This provides Dr. Romy a clear view of the tissue and allows for the specific modifications to be carried out. This approach is considered to be less invasive than the classic approach and will result in less scar concerns, however the effects may be less dramatic and not as long-lasting as they would be from a more traditional method.

Each approach is tailored to a patient's specific anatomy. A one-on-one consultation with Dr. Romy will help you to appreciate which method will help deliver the results you want.

Brow Lift Recovery

Following your procedure, we will apply surgical dressings to the treatment site, which can typically be removed within 3 days. We'll send you home with detailed guidelines for proper aftercare, including steps for elevating your head and applying cold compresses as needed to reduce swelling. You may return to your normal routine after 1-2 weeks. We advise that you wait 3-6 weeks before performing more strenuous activities like vigorous exercise. Most healthy patients heal very well with no issues or complication from this procedure. Incision lines are carefully placed in the hairline to hide their appearance and once the scar has matured, it will usually fad to a pale, barely-there line within the hair.
