Brow Lift & Eyebrow lift Surgery | London, UK | Mr. Ivo Gwanmesia Skip to main content

As you age, forehead tissues can become weaker, causing your brows or eyebrow to lower. Heavy or drooping eyebrows can contribute to wrinkles along the forehead and can even impact the vision of some patients. Brow lift and eyebrow lift surgery is designed to reposition and support the eyebrows for a brighter, revitalized appearance.

Rejuvenating Your Eyes

The muscle weakness that leads to drooping brows may also cause vertical lines or wrinkles across the forehead. For deeper wrinkles that cannot be improved using injectables, a brow lift can significantly smooth their appearance.
Laxity around the brows can lead to frown lines, which are horizontal creases between the brows. Lifting and repositioning the brow muscles can soften the appearance of frown lines, restoring a more pleasing and relaxed look.
Heavy or drooping brows can slowly move downwards, overtaking the eyelids. When this occurs, those with excess skin accumulation can begin to have vision difficulties. Lifting and tightening the brows removes skin that interferes with your vision.

Brow Lift and Eyebrow Lift Techniques

Classic Brow Lift and EyeBrow Lift Surgeries

  • An incision is created along or within the hairline.
  • The surface tissues are separated from the underlying muscular structures.
  • Excess skin and fat are removed.
  • The brow, eyebrow and forehead muscles are repositioned and tightened.
  • Care is taken to ensure your brows maintain a natural shape and contour.

Endoscopic Brow Lift (Eyebrow)

  • Minimal incisions are hidden in the hairline.
  • An endoscope allows Mr Gwanmesia to adjust the muscles without disturbing the superficial layer.
  • This technique provides tightening but doesn’t efficiently remove excess skin

Frequently Asked Questions

Ideal candidates for brow lift surgery will meet the following criteria:
  • Overall good health
  • Non-smoking
  • Realistic expectations about the results
  • Moderate to severe forehead wrinkles and frown lines
  • Severe wrinkles that may interfere with vision sightlines
Brow lift surgery is commonly combined with an eyelid lift in patients with excess eyelid skin. You may also consider combining your brow lift with a facelift if you have lower facial aging in addition to your upper facial issues.
Results will become more noticeable within a few weeks after your brow lift as the bruising and swelling subside. You will begin to see noteworthy results within a few weeks, and your minor incision lines will refine over the following year.
Though the brows will continue to age naturally, individuals who undergo brow lift can expect long-lasting results that reveal a more rejuvenated, refreshed, and youthful appearance with a full range of vision. To maintain the best results, take good care of your skin and protect the area from sun exposure by wearing sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats. Routine injectable treatments can help maintain the quality of your results.
Although rare, potential risks associated with brow lift surgery include abnormal reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, elevated hairline, infection, scarring, and poor wound healing.
While both surgeries focus on the upper part of your face, a brow lift will address forehead wrinkles and sagging eyebrows, whereas eyelid surgery focuses on the upper and lower eyelids. If you notice horizontal wrinkling across your forehead, vertical creases between the eyes, and sagging brows, a brow lift may be for you.
A healthy lifestyle and proper protection from the sun can result in long-lasting results. However, no surgery can prevent future aging, and your skin is likely to show additional signs of aging as time passes.
To get the best results, you will be asked to stop smoking and stay smoke-free before and after your brow lift surgery. Smoking will disrupt the healing process and can lead to post-op complications.
Mr Gwanmesia will determine the appropriate technique used, which will be based on the anatomy of your face and aesthetic goals.
Brow lift surgery is performed using general anesthesia.
