Brow Lift

Brow Lift at Oaks Hospital

The aim of a brow lift procedure is surgical rejuvenation of the forehead and eyebrows. It involves a subtle tightening or lifting of the skin in this area. A brow lift can be carried out on its own in people with early signs of aging or combined with facelifts and or eyelid surgery if required.

The surgery will correct drooping of eyebrows, loose skin and give some improvement to deep facial lines in between the eyebrows.

What does brow lift surgery involve?

Small incisions behind the hairline are made. An endoscope, which is a pencil thin camera device that is connected to a television monitor, is then inserted through each incision in turn, enabling the surgeon to see the muscles and tissues beneath the skin. By careful release of forehead tissue from the underlying bone and delicate cutting of muscles which cause central frowning lines, the forehead skin can be elevated and tightened. The suspension of the forehead is achieved by fixing the skin using special deep sutures or absorbable fixation devises anchored to bone.

The operation usually takes approximately one hour to complete and normally involves an overnight stay in hospital.

Our BAAPS/BAPRAS surgeons will give impartial advice and have a thorough discussion with you on the nature of the surgery and your suitability for it. You will be fully informed about the implications of having this operation including the limitations of the technique, the position of the scars and any possible short-term or long-term complication.

The final decision to have surgery is your own personal choice.

Spider (Thread) Veins

Spider veins, also known as thread veins, are small, twisted blood vessels that appear in a spiderweb pattern through your skin often on your legs or face. They are similar to varicose veins but smaller and caused in the same way when a one-way valve in your vein, that help your blood flow back to your heart, stops working properly and your vein swells as blood flows the wrong way.
