Browlift Surgery in India

Brow lifts are performed for people who have ptosis of the forehead or brows as well as those with drooping of the upper eyelids. A brow lift is a procedure that will restore the aged area over the eyes. Brow lifts correct drooping brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that make someone appear angry, sad, or tired. During a brow lift the surgeon removes the muscles and tissues that cause the drooping. The eyebrows are raised, and the result of a brow lift is a smoother looking forehead.

The brow lift surgeon makes an incision that is hidden behind the hairline sometimes with an endoscope, a viewing instrument that allows brow lift to be done with minimal incisions. Brow lifts are normally performed on people ages 40-60 when signs of aging become more visible, but a brow lift can also be performed to decrease frown lines that have developed from stress or muscle activity. Some people seek a brow lift because they were born with a low or heavy brow and want to achieve a more alert and refreshed look. Sometimes a brow lift is accompanied by a facelift to provide a smoother look to the face, or with eyelid surgery if there is a significant amount of skin overhang in the upper eyelids.

An incision behind the hairline allows the brow lift surgeon to avoid permanent visible scarring as a result of the brow lift. The surgeon then removes the necessary tissue, sometimes using an endoscope (small camera) to avoid brow lift scarring. Aside from scarring, there are a few other side effects that could result from brow lift surgery. As with any surgery, infection is always a risk, and nerve damage from brow lifts can cause an inability of the individual to control eyebrow movement or wrinkle the forehead. Brow lift complications, however, are extremely rare, and most often can be corrected surgically.

The procedure can also address horizontal lines across the forehead, as well as glabellar creases or wrinkles across root of the nose. In these patients, the brow is lifted as well as interrupting the muscle activity that causes these lines and wrinkles. Endoscopic approaches have become popular in recent years, specifically addressing these overactive muscles in the forehead. The standard approach remains the coronal lift, in which an incision is made across the top of the head, from ear to ear, and the forehead, brows, and upper lids. The procedure can be done in conjunction with a facelift, in which case the incisions are connected in the hairline.

Complications with brow lifts are rare. A rare risk that may result from a brow lift is injured nerves that control eyebrow movement that may prevent the ability to raise the eyebrows or wrinkle the forehead. This brow lift problem can be corrected with additional surgery. A broad scar can also result from a brow lift and can be treated surgically by removing the scar tissue. Minor Complications like hematoma, alopecia, paralysis of the frontalis muscle or nerve branches, and interruption of sensation of the forehead and anterior scalp. The endoscopic approach can minimize or eliminate some of these potential risks.
