As we age, skin will start to sag and can result in deep lines and wrinkles. One of the most common areas for lines to appear is around the eyes. As we age, deep frown lines can appear across our brow and in between eyebrows. The eyebrows themselves may also start to sag. When this happens it can create a look of anger or unhappiness.
In order to reduce sagging, a cosmetic surgeon can perform a brow lift. The brow lift is performed by lifting the area above the eyebrows and weakening the muscles that are causing the furrows to appear on the forehead and between the eyes. The result of a brow lift is eyes that appear more open and reveals a more youthful looking face.
The technique used for surgery
No matter what surgery a patient is receiving, a scar is always a risk. As a brow lift is performed on the face, it is important to do everything possible to minimise the possibility of a visible scar. In order to keep any scarring hidden, a brow lift can be performed by making incisions behind the hairline. An endoscopic brow lift is done by utilising an endoscope, which is a small instrument with a camera on the end of it. This instrument is inserted through one of the incisions that have been made behind the hairline. For this procedure, three to five small incisions need to be made.
Understanding the risks
Before deciding on a surgical procedure, it is important that you thoroughly understand the possible complications that could occur. While you surgeon will take the time to go throughout these thoroughly and answer any questions, here is an overview of some risks associated with the procedure:
- Reactions to anaesthesia
- Nerve damage
- Numbness of brow
- Hair loss
This is not a complete list and there are many factors that can alter the likelihood of risks and complications occurring. A comprehensive discussion with your plastic surgeon and an assessment of your medical history will help you make an informed decision on whether this procedure is right for you.
Receiving treatment in Thailand
Integral Medical Solutions assist Australians wanting a brow lift to receive exemplary treatment in Thailand. As cosmetic surgeries do not qualify for rebates, it can be difficult for some people wanting to receive the surgery to come up with sufficient funds. While costs and waiting times can become quite high in Australia, going to Thailand for the same procedure can be a more affordable alternative for some clients.
At Integral, we are proud to have formed a partnership with Bangkok Hospital Pattaya, a hospital with state-of-the-art facilities and helpful staff. Through this partnership, we are able to organise medical procedures for our clients in Australia. For peace of mind, we not only organise the procedure for you, we also provide pre and post operation consultations here in Australia that are performed by registered nurses.
