A brow lift is often relevant to emotional, expressive people, whose emotions and experience tend to show on their face, and to those whose eyebrows and forehead are naturally low.
Patients over 50 years old tend to choose this surgery more than other age groups, because less invasive correction methods at this age do not produce the desired effect; younger patients nowadays are offered a wide range of alternatives to preserve their youth.
A brow lift is a solution for those who want to feel rejuvenated, to restore a smoother forehead, to lift the eyebrows (as a result, the upper eyelids get lifted a little bit, too), to reclaim a more youthful look, and to smooth out wrinkles between the eyebrows.
At our Centre, we can perform several plastic-aesthetic surgeries at the same time (e.g. a brow lift together with a facelift or upper and lower lid blepharoplasty) to achieve the maximum effect and save the patient from additional anaesthesia.

The patient starts seeing the results in 3-4 weeks, the final result is achieved in 4 months.
The effect lasts 5-10 years
The surgery takes 0.5-1 hour
The patient spends up to 24 hours at the Centre in total.

The surgery is performed under local or general anaesthesia, depending on the individual case and the level of the surgery, as discussed prior to the procedure. During the brow lift, a long incision is made in front of or behind the hairline. Once it is healed, the incision becomes almost invisible as the scar is covered by the hair. The goal of the surgery is to remove and correct some of the muscles that make wrinkles form, to remove excess skin, lift the eyebrows, and lift the skin and attach it to the bone.
After the surgery, the surgeon stitches up the incisions with dissolvable thread.
Usually the patient can go home 3-4 hours after the surgery. Having someone to look after the patient for at least 24 hours after the surgery is recommended.
All plastic-aesthetic surgeries cause a slight or more noticeable pain, which can be relieved with prescribed painkillers. A week after the surgery, the sutures are removed.
Often after the surgery the patient will notice swelling, bruising, there may be some haematomas around the eyes, and the areas where the incision was made may feel numb or itchy for some time. The appearance will return to normal in about 2 weeks, and total recovery should be expected in a month.

- avoiding housework, do not lift heavy objects;
- limiting exercise and abstaining from the sauna and pool for about a month;
- abstaining from alcohol and make-up use until the sutures are removed.
