Browlift surgery, also known as a forehead lift, brings about a more youthful and revitalised appearance to the face by properly repositioning the drooping eyebrows and getting rid of frown lines that may appear on the forehead which occur with the ageing process. This is a very common cosmetic procedure undertaken by Centre for Surgery for women and men generally over the age of forty. There are different types of browlift procedure which are tailored to the individual patient depending on whether asymmetry is involved and if there is also drooping of the upper eyelid skin.
A brow appearance that looks depressed or recessed or even a fatigued appearance means that browlift surgery could be the solution to your needs, Brow asymmetry can also be corrected with a browlift procedure. A depressed brow can also give rise to ptosis of the upper eyelids. Browlift can also be performed alongside complementary procedures to rejuvenate the upper half of the face.
