The normal position of the brow is different in males and females. Nevertheless, with age and gravity the brow droops. This can result in a tired or angry appearance. Muscles on the forehead will try to compensate by pulling the brow upwards resulting in the formation of forehead wrinkles. A brow lift is a surgical operation that can help to reverse some of these changes by lifting and redraping the brow to a higher position. It can be combined with a blepharoplasty to rejuvenate the upper third of the face.

Yes I would like to hear about offers, products, services, and events:


Types Of Browlift


open/coronal browlift

This is an effective method of lifting the brow however it involves a long scar over the scalp which runs from ear to ear. The scars heal well and will not be noticeable in the long term provided there is hair coverage.


suture suspension browlift

This browlift technique involves incisions in the hairline followed by lifting of the brow skin and suspension at a higher point with the use of sutures.


endoscopic browlift

Utilising key hole surgery and the use of hand held scopes. The brow is lifted and suspended through a total of 4-5 incisions in the scalp and hairline. The lift is maintained with the use of screws and sutures.

Before & Afters


Frequently Asked Questions

A browlift can be done under a local or general anaesthetic and usually takes 1-2 hours depending on the technique used. You will be admitted on the day of surgery and depending on which technique is employed, you may go home the same day or stay overnight in hospital. The incisions are stitched closed and will need to be removed at 5-7 days. 

After your operation, you should expect some bruising and swelling which is normal. This usually takes 10-14 days to settle down. Although recovery is different in everyone, most people feel well enough to return to work after 2 weeks. You should still avoid strenuous exercises for 4-6 weeks. Immediately after your operation, the brow may seem a little high however over a period of a few weeks, this drops to the appropriate position.

Your wounds will be checked at 5-7 days and the sutures will be removed. Following that, you will have a further appointment at 6 weeks and 3 months to review the outcome.

A browlift is a routine operation with the vast majority of patients being happy with the results however it is important you understand the potential risks and complications that can occur

Scarring : The scars in a browlift are sited mainly within the hair or hairline so tend to be hidden. The exception is in bald men where the scars will be evident

Infection : Infection can occasionally occur although it is quite uncommon. If you develop an infection, you will require a course of antibiotics 

 Loss of sensation : There may be a degree of sensation loss in the scalp above the scars. This is usually temporary however they can be permanent

Wound breakdown : Wound breakdown is uncommon. If it occurs, it will require dressings to allow it to heal. It may result in a poorer quality scar if it occurs

Bleeding : Although every effort is taken to control bleeding, a blood clot may occasionally form beneath the brow. If this occurs, you will require removal of the clot in theatre

Hair loss : There may be some minor hair loss around the incision sites however it is unlikely that it will be noticeable

Asymmetry : Although the same operation is performed to both sides of the brow, there may be small differences between them
