There really is no age requirement. A brow lift is can be performed on someone as young as their late 20s and at any age after that. For younger patients, there are non surgical techniques such as Botox that are less invasive.
First, Mr Athanassopoulos will examine you and discuss your medical history. He will then go over brow lift types and the options that can best help you attain your goals. Often brow lift is combined with upper eyelid surgery.
An endoscopic brow lift is performed using an tiny camera, that is inserted under the skin in the hair line and allows the procedure to be performed with no visible scarring.
An endoscopic browlift has between three and five ½” long incisions just behind the hairline.
Botox placed on the upper eyelid and at the tail of the brow causes a pleasing eyebrow lift. When inexperienced practitioners use botox the eyebrow can come down further and cause even more heaviness.
A brow lift elevates the brows but doesn’t touch eyelid skin. An upper eyelift reduces the amount of skin between brown and lash but it doesn’t change the brow position or shape.
A swollen, tender and bruised forehead is normal following your surgery and should subside in about 10 days. In addition to pressure bandages, there may be thin drains in place to remove excess blood and fluid.
The reason people develop the deep horizontal forehead lines is that they are trying to raise their eye brows. Once their eyebrows are elevated, there is less of a need to lift the eyebrows. A browlift does not get rid of those lines, but it reduces them.
No garments or dressings have to be worn after a browlift.
