During a brow lift, the muscles under the skin in the middle of the forehead that cause grooves or frown lines between the eyes, increased heaviness of the eyebrows and horizontal lines across the forehead can be reduced or released to help create a smoother brow. Although there are different brow lift techniques, the two main options that are used are the original open technique and an endoscopic brow lift.
Brow lifts can be performed under a general anaesthetic, but for this procedure, many surgeons use a local anaesthetic along with a sedative to make you drowsy, so that you remain awake but feel very little discomfort. Private costs for brow lifts can range from approximately £3,000 to £4,000.
Mr Adrian Richards provides information on the brow lift procedure and the surgical techniques used in this type of cosmetic surgery.
