This procedure consists of elevating the forehead skin and eyebrows, smoothing the forehead skin and improving frown lines and crows feet lines. It will give a more open look to the upper eyelids. Browlifts can be performed as an ‘open’ technique or endoscopically through smaller incisions.
The surgeons at The Aesthetic Day Surgery will give a realistic indication of the results you can personally expect from a browlift during your initial consultation.

Is a Browlift suitable for me?
The decision to go ahead with an aesthetic procedure is a very personal one. The first step is a consultation with one of the qualified plastic surgeons at the Aesthetic Day Surgery. Whatever your reasons you should frankly discuss your personal goals and expectations with respect to the outcome of the procedure (both physical and emotional) with your surgeon. As with any aesthetic surgery you should always keep in mind that the desired result is improvement, not perfection.
How long will the procedure take?
Depending on the extent of the procedure, browlift surgery may last anywhere from 2 to 3 hours. However, please keep n mind that this is only actual surgical time. To ensure the highest standard of personalised patient care, attention to detail and results, the Aesthetic Day Surgery requires you to spend appropriate time both immediately before and after the procedure within the surgery. In general you would need to allocate up to a full day of your time to allow for pre-operative procedures, the surgery itself and post operative care. (Note: This time would be in addition to your initial and follow up consultations with an ADS Surgeon).
How long will it take me to recover after a Browlift?
Recovery times do vary from one patient to the next. Upon discharge you will need to rest at home for the first 48 hours. Most patients choose to return to work within 2-3 weeks, however strenuous activities (such as a vigorous exercise or aerobics program or any contact sport) should not be resumed for 6 weeks following the procedure.
Will the procedure leave any scars?
The advanced surgical techniques applied by the surgeons at the Aesthetic Day Surgery are designed to minimise (and where possible eliminate) all visible scarring. Surgical incisions are made in inconspicuous places, most commonly in the hair line. In general, you can expect any scarring that does occur to fade considerably with time although there is an individual variation in healing time and scar formation.
Are there any side effects of the procedure?
Your surgeon at the Aesthetic Day Surgery will discuss side effects and any potential complications directly with you at your initial consultation.
