A brow lift or forehead lift restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above and around the eyes.
Dr Scott Turner MBBS(Hon), BSc, MS, FRACS(Plast)
A brow lift procedure improves the shape and position of the eyebrows and diminishes wrinkles and furrows on the forehead that can make you appear angry, sad or worried. It can also help correct excess, hanging upper eyelid skin that can make you look tired. A brow lift is often performed in conjunction with a facelift and/or blepharoplasty for a comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
Dr Turner’s favours a natural look, so you will not have that ‘surprised’, overcorrected, high arched brow.
|Length of surgery:||2-3 hours|
|Recovery:||Most patients are back to work in approximately 10 – 14 days when swelling and bruising resolves. We advise our patients to avoid strenuous activity for 1 month.|
|Results:||Final results are seen within 6 months, and the duration of those results vary from one person to another due to the quality of their skin, ageing and weight changes.|
What can a Brow Lift do for me?

Am I suitable?
The procedure is most commonly performed on both men and women who are in good health and have developed furrows or wrinkles and a low or sagging brow. It is ideal for patients between ages of 40 to 60 years.
A brow lift can even improve vision for patients experiencing visual obstruction due to lower brow position and excessive upper eyelid laxity, often in combination with a blepharoplasty.
Your Brow Lift Consultation
Firstly, you are fully informed of the normal surgery process, plus possible complications. After a thorough history and discussion about your desires / goals, Dr Scott Turner examines you to assess if you are a good surgical candidate. This will focus closely on assessing your hairline position, eyebrow shape and configuration, skin quality, eyelid position (skin and fat component), underlying muscle activity and the bone structure. Routine pre-op photographs are taken.
During your consultation, Dr Scott Turner will discuss the range of techniques available from traditional open browlift, minimal incision lateral browlift to endoscopic browlift techniques. The benefits and limitations of each technique and how it may be tailored to achieve your aesthetic goals, along with possible risks and complications.
