Brow lift surgery is most suitable for patients who have a general saggy appearance to the skin on the forehead and upper face.
Yes, if that’s what you need. Your surgeon will advise on the best treatment for your requirements. As well as the brow lift, we offer eyelid surgery, eye bag removal or facelift.
During a brow lift, incisions are made close to the natural hairline to minimise the appearance of scarring. Post-operative scarring will fade over time.
We want you to make a fully informed decision before you go ahead with surgery, so we offer a private consultation at your local clinic free of charge. At your consultation, you’ll meet with a cosmetic surgeon to discuss the facelift options available and whether brow lift surgery is the most suitable procedure for your needs. You’ll be able to ask questions about all aspects of the surgery, from the various types of facelift to aftercare and the results you can expect. You’ll also meet your patient care coordinator, who will be with you every step of the journey. They will give you a personal quotation of costs and information about finance options, the expected timescale, our surgical facilities and door-to-door transport services.
At your consultation, you can book your surgery if you feel ready, but there’s no obligation to go ahead. Cosmetic surgery is a big step and you may want to take time to do more research and think about your decision. We’ll give you a patient information booklet, which provides comprehensive information on your procedure and aftercare. This is an important resource and we require patients to read the detailed information it contains. You’ll also find lots of helpful information here on our website – you can read about our surgeons’ qualifications, THG’s cosmetic surgery expertise and inspiring stories from some of our patients. Our patient care coordinators are available to discuss any concerns you may have. And when you feel ready, they can book you in for your procedure. We also have a 14-day ‘cooling off’ period in place, which means that if you change your mind about the procedure after booking within that period, you will not be charged.
On the day of your surgery, your medical team will make your experience as comfortable as possible and you’ll meet your surgeon again before the procedure. Brow lift surgery involves making incisions slightly behind the natural hairline and running from ear to ear across the head. The forehead skin is lifted, the eyebrows are raised and any loose skin is removed and tightened to help give a smoother appearance. The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic.
We’ll be here throughout the recovery process to help you recuperate quickly. For brow lift surgery performed under general anaesthetic, you normally need to stay in the hospital where your surgery has taken place for one or two nights following your procedure. Each patient is given a personalised care plan, developed with the advice of their surgeon. All THG hospitals are equipped to the highest standards of clinical care and patient comfort. Following your surgery, the initial bruising should last 7-10 days, so it’s advisable to have some time at home before returning to work or normal activities.
At THG, we offer a full package of aftercare support with all our cosmetic surgery procedures to give you complete peace of mind. You’ll benefit from the following aftercare: · Unlimited post-op appointments with a member of our clinical team whenever you need them · Surgical cover for 3 years – revision surgery where clinically indicated · Additional days’ stay in hospital where needed · Additional medication and dressings at no extra cost · Emergency telephone support, which you can use at any time
