About The Procedure
What is brow lift surgery?
Deep furrows on the forehead, frown lines over the eyes, drooping eyebrows, and hood-like skin over the eyes are all conditions that can make you look older than you are – or feel. Whether age or heredity causes these conditions, a forehead lift or a an eyebrow lift can give you a more youthful, animated and alert appearance.
A brow lift surgery, moves eyebrows back where they belong: at or above the brow bone. It may also smooth the furrows in the lower forehead as well as reduce the drooping skin above the eyes. As a result of the surgery, the eyes appear more open, more rested and youthful.

Drooping Eyebrows, what can be done?
Drooping eyebrows are often one of the first signs of ageing. This condition is frequently overlooked because most people are unaware of the problem and the amount of improvement correction can provide. Drooping brows cause the upper lids to droop and move downward. In extreme cases, the eyelid skin can touch or overlap the eyelashes. People often comment that their eyes appear to be getting smaller or more deeply set. A drooping brow contributes to the tired look observed at the end of the day. For women, this condition frequently causes eye makeup to end up on the upper part of their eyelids soon after it is applied.
Forehead lift surgery (or brow lift) surgery may lessen the deeper "crow's feet" next to the outer corners of the eye but will not reduce other lines or folds around the eyes. The lift will not correct excess skin or pouching caused by fat deposits in the lids. In order to achieve the best result, combining a forehead lift or eyebrow lift surgery with other procedures such as eyelid surgery, a facelift, anti-wrinkle injections or muscle relaxing injections is recommended.
During your brow lift Sydney consultation, your eyes, brows, forehead and hairline will be analysed to determine the appropriate procedure for you. In forehead lift surgery, the incisions are placed behind the hairline of the scalp or at the hairline where the forehead and scalp meet. Placement depends upon the height of the patient's hairline. In order to achieve a natural result, it is critical to avoid appreciable altering of the hair pattern. Great care is taken to place incisions within the hair, hairline, or naturally-occurring fold of skin to make the resulting scars as inconspicuous as possible.
We invite you to call us at the clinic and make an appointment to see if brow lift surgery or another facial rejuvenation procedure will provide you with the results you are looking for.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Can I Do About My Worried Looking Eyebrows?
A tired or angry appearance is associated with brow ptosis (i.e. drooping). The eyebrows have begun to undergo the effects of gravity and instead of being arched over open eyes, they have descended and the eyes look small. Over-activity of the face muscles from frowning, squinting, asthma or breathing disorders is also often associated with brow ptosis. Although anti-wrinkle injections can temporarily improve the “scowling” appearance, a longer-term solution is a brow-lift. This procedure, popular in the 30–50 age group, can take away that worried, angry or tired appearance and make you look friendlier, fresher and less concerned. The endoscopic brow-lift is a major improvement over the traditional brow-lift as the incisions are small and the recovery time minimal. I have been performing the endoscopic brow-lift for more than ten years and the vast majority of my patients (nearly 500) have been satisfied with the result. The procedure is always performed as an outpatient at my clinic.

How can I have younger looking eyes?
The procedure to rejuvenate the eyes (eyelids) is called blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty involves a surgical procedure, performed as an outpatient under twilight sedation or light general anaesthesia, where the excessive skin and bulging fat of the upper and lower eyelids is removed and the youthful stance of the eyelids restored. Care must be taken not to overresect tissue but to create a crisp fold in the upper eyelid and not 'hollow out' the lid. This outpatient surgical procedure requires precision and experience to rejuvenate your 'look'.

Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?
Absolutely, if performed by a qualified and experienced doctor. The television show "Body Work" recently demonstrated anti-wrinkle injections both to smooth and soften lunes and folds as well as injectable fillers to enhance lips. The areas usually addressed are the frown lines between the eyebrows, then horizontal lines in the forehead and the crows feet around the side of the eyes. Folds most commonly softened are those around the mouth. These injections are highly popular as they can be performed in a matter of minutes and either instantly or within a few days the patient has a benefit which lasts for a number of months. Note: the injectables used for these procedures can only be ordered by a doctor, and the manufacturers and the medical community fo not endorse in a party environment.
