What is a Brow Lift?
A Brow Lift is a very effect way to rejuvenate your entire face. It lifts sagging brows, deep furrows between the eyes and etched lines across the forehead. By tightening the skin, Brow Lifts reduce wrinkles and give a smoother appearance.
The brow lift (or forehead lift) is a procedure which will raise your eyebrows to a higher and more aesthetically pleasing position and also improve the appearance of lateral hoods, which are the droopy flaps of skin that hang over the outside corner of your eyes. With this procedure you will also see a softening of horizontal forehead wrinkles and the frown lines between your eyebrows.
There are two types of Brow Lift Surgery for Men; an Open Brow Lift and an Endoscopic Brow Lift.
Open Brow Lift involves one continuous incision, beginning at the level of your ears and going up around your hair line. Depending on where your hair line is, the surgeon will move the incision line to avoid a visible scar.
Endoscopic Brow Lift is a more advanced procedure and involves the use of a tiny camera to locate the imperfections, and smaller incisions to make the necessary alterations.

Why do you not have before and after pictures on the website?
Before and after pictures on websites can be misleading as they may not be patients of the surgeon who will be doing your Brow Lift.
As every person wanting a Brow Lift has completely different expectations, it is a much more valuable tool for your Consultant Plastic Surgeon to show pictures of not only Brow Lifts that he as actually done but also show you results you will be likely to receive.
