Cosmetic browlift

Endoscopic browlift

A type of cosmetic keyhole surgery that lifts and tightens the area above the eyes, and improves forehead wrinkles.

About

As we age, the skin around our brow naturally starts to lower. A browlift can reinvigorate your face by helping to improve forehead lines, lifting droopy eyelids and tightening up skin in that area. The endoscopic browlift is a quick surgical procedure that uses keyhole techniques to minimise scars.

Need to know

  • What happens icon plus

    We put you under general anaesthetic which means you'll be asleep during your procedure. Your surgeon will make some small cuts above your hairline and then insert a tiny tube with a keyhole camera (endoscope) through them. The footage from the camera will guide the operation. Your surgeon will lift the tissues of your forehead and loosen the muscles that cause you to frown. They'll secure your new brow height with dissolvable internal stitches and also stitch the cuts above your hairline. This procedure usually takes one to two hours. And because it's a minimally invasive type of surgery, you shouldn't have any visible scars.
  • How to prepare icon plus

    Like all procedures, there may be some risks and side effects involved. Your consultant will explain these to you and be able to answer any questions you may have. As you'll need to have a general anaesthetic, your consultant will tell you how long you should avoid eating and drinking for beforehand.
  • Afterwards icon plus

    You'll be cared for in hospital overnight. Soreness and headaches are totally normal for the first week after your procedure. To help reduce swelling - a standard part of your recovery - we recommend that you sleep upright and don't bend down for about a week. Your forehead and scalp might also feel numb or itchy. This should only last a few weeks. Your consultant will let you know when you can get back to your usual routine but you can expect to be off work for one to two weeks. And you'll need to avoid sport for at least two weeks. Any scars should be small (endoscopic browlifts are minimally invasive procedures) and hidden under your hair.
