What Does It Involve?
The procedure involves small 1cm stab incisions behind the hairline and elevation of the forehead skin from the underlying facial bone. The skin is resuspended with sutures in the scalp. In some cases where only minor adjustment is required, a dissolvable device can be placed behind the brow through an upper eyelid incision (Transbleph Endotine), usually in combination with upper blepharoplasty. The scar is hidden in the eyelid crease and the brow is re-positioned. In very rare occasions, a full browlift with a scar transversing from ear to ear is still the preferred choice. Mr. Ho-Asjoe will assess your suitability and guide you accordingly.
Patients will experience bruising and swelling for a few days. Some will experience a headache which can usually be relieved with analgesia.
The surgery is usually carried out in combination with other facial procedures such as blepharoplasty, facelift.
