Is a Brow Lift for Me?

Squinting and facial expressions, like frowning, contribute to the formation of lines on your forehead. Along with the aging process and the pull of gravity, your brows can droop over the eyelids, making you look tired and older.

A forehead lift will give you a wrinkle-free forehead and this goes a long way in reversing the aging appearance of your face. It can be performed as a standalone procedure or combined with a facelift, eye bag removal and other procedures, as well as non-surgical cosmetic treatments.

Also called a browplasty, this surgery can be performed using an "open" surgical technique or carried out endoscopically, using minute incisions. You can decide along with your chosen surgeon as to which technique will work best for your problems and whether you need another facial procedure (surgical or minimally invasive) to achieve your goals.

Why Consider a Forehead Lift in Bali?

Bali is now known for its excellent medical care and affordable prices. It is also easily accessible from countries like Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. As this surgery is something you must pay for out-of-pocket, you have to shop around for affordable options if you feel you need the surgery.

If you plan to go to Bali, you can also enjoy a fabulous holiday prior to your surgery, soaking up the scenery and many attractions, as well as the many great beaches across the island. You’ll also find lots to do in terms of activities–whether you like hurtling through the air on a zip wire; negotiating river rapids or strolling around a golf course. If you are having surgery, then it is best to get your holiday activities in before your procedure, so you can focus on recovery post-op. Your doctor will likely advise you to stay out of the sun as well.

Post-surgery, you’ll find plenty of places that will cater to your needs, whether dining out or indulging in spa therapies to aid your recovery.

How Long Does a Forehead Lift and What Is the Recovery Like?

Browplasty may be carried in different ways depending on where you need a lift. It is usually carried out under local anesthesia and the procedure should take between one and two hours.

Sutures are put in places, either following the natural crease or hidden; thus, they can be positioned in the eyebrow line or in the hairline (unless it is done endoscopically).

Usually, the skin is tightened, the excess tissue removed and the eyebrows will assume a more natural arch after the surgery. This reduces the appearance of wrinkles and furrows.  

Things to note about your recovery:

  • Recovery can take two to three weeks depending on your general health and the procedure you have elected.
  • You will have bruising, swelling and pain and will need painkillers.
  • Your forehead may feel tight for some time and you should ideally sleep with your head elevated for a week.
  • Swelling will start subsiding after four days.
  • Expect the complete healing process to take six to eight weeks.
