Dr Rodrigo - Brow Lift


The drooping or lowering of the eyebrows is one of the earliest signs of aging. This condition is often overlooked because most people are unaware of the problem and its correction can provide the marked improvement. Recreating the natural arch of the eyebrow and removing the lateral hooding can greatly impact one's appearance, eliminating this fatigued appearance.

Lateral brow lift (Temporal brow lift)

Lateral brow lift or temporal brow lift is much less extensive than the bicoronal brow lift and may provide the same or nearly same results, depending on your anatomy and expectations. It is suitable for anyone with heaviness of the upper outer eyelids, crow's feet and sagging of the lateral eyebrows. Temporal tuck test is a simple test for choosing this procedure. Look straight ahead in the mirror and pull up and back gently on the forehead above the eyebrows. If you see a change in the eyebrows and the upper eyelids that you like, then you are an excellent candidate for the surgery. A small incision is placed about one inch behind the hairline and follows the curvature of your hairline for several inches. A space is made through the incision down to the eyebrow to release the ligaments and allow for elevation.

Anesthesia


Local anesthesia with some sedation is for direct brow lift , lateral brow lift and endoscopic brow lift but bicoronal brow lift requires general anesthesia and hospital stay.

Duration of operation


It depends on which procedure is performed. About one to three hours. Hospital admission one night admission in the hospital is required for brow lift. The direct brow lift,lateral brow lift and endoscopic brow lift can be performed as outpatient service.

Possible risks and complications


When brow lift surgery is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, complications are infrequent and usually minor.You can reduce your risks by closely following your surgeon's instructions both before and after surgery. The specific risks and the suitability of this procedure for a given individual can only be determined at the time of consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are rare.As with any operation, there are risks associated with a brow lift, such as reactions to the anaesthetic,  haematomas, asymmetry infections. Haematomas are collections of blood under the skin and, if small, can be absorbed of their own accord over several days  Broad unsightly scars are rare. Surgical revision may improve such scars. Lost sensation along or below the incision line is common but usually only temporary. Operation scars are permanent. They do fade over time and are usually hardly noticeable, as they are often hidden,  by your hair

After care


Direct brow lift will cause less swelling and pain. Meanwhile with the Endoscopic brow lift surgery are more bruising and swelling expected.. Applying cold compress at the forehead or temporal areas in the first few days will reduce this swelling. Most bruising will disappear within two weeks.
