Mini Brow Lift

  • Day Procedure
  • Minimally Invasive
  • Natural-Looking Results

 

As we age, the skin and underlying ligaments of the forehead gradually lose elasticity, with eyebrows coming to rest at a lower position. This, in turn, can have the effect of exacerbating the heaviness of the upper eyelids. This problem may also affect younger individuals with this specific genetic predisposition.

Overall, patients who experience are unsatisfied with having a permanently tired or prematurely aged look. 

As such, the Mini Brow Lift (also referred to as the ‘Temporal Brow Lift’) is a procedure which aids in raising saggy outer eyebrows, to give the face a more rested and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Our doctors have successfully performed countless Mini Brow Lift surgeries and are renowned for achieving natural-looking results with high patient satisfaction.

If you are considering travelling overseas for your cosmetic surgery because you cannot afford it here in Australia, please come and see us before you make any decisions.

To provide you with peace of mind, we offer a 15-minute complimentary (free) appointment with our Cosmetic Surgery Consultant to discuss your best options. 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

At Medisculpt®, the Mini Brow Lift is performed using CO2 Laser and Radio-wave surgery as a day procedure under local anaesthesia. It may also be performed under Twilight Anaesthesia in an accredited day hospital.

 

This procedure takes approximately 120 minutes to complete.

 

We routinely perform this procedure under safe doses of local anaesthesia while the patient is conscious. 

We also offer this procedure under Twilight Sedation at an accredited day hospital in Subiaco, in case the patient prefers to be asleep during the surgery. (Additional costs are associated with this option.)

 

 

Once the treatment area has been numbed, you will be unable to feel any pain. At Medisculpt™ we make every effort to ensure that every procedure we perform entails minimal pain or discomfort.

We also offer this procedure under Twilight Sedation at an accredited day hospital in Subiaco, in case the patient prefers to be asleep during the surgery. (Additional costs are associated with this option.)

 

 

Most people tolerate this procedure exceptionally well. Patients are able to go home straight after the surgery and do not require prolonged post-surgical hospital admission or monitoring.

 

In the majority of cases, the incision scars are barely noticeable and begin to fade quickly within a few weeks.

At Medisculpt, we have the most extensive range of Fractional CO2 Lasers to help reduce any scarring, whether related to a surgery or trauma.

Patients may experience some numbness in the treated area after the surgery. However, this effect will disappear with time.

 

Most patients can return to office-based work within 5 to 10 days. We recommend at least two weeks off if your work involves heavy physical activity or travelling. A Medical Certificate can be organised, which will not mention the name of your procedure.

 

Light activity is suitable after 72 hours, while light exercise is usually acceptable after two weeks provided recovery is going well.

 

 

Like any surgical procedure, the Mini Face Lift comes with possible risks and complications that include, but are not limited to:

  • Infection
  • Over-correction
  • Inadequate correction
  • Swelling and discomfort
  • Delayed healing and unfavourable scarring
  • Nerve trauma and numbness
  • Temporary skin discolouration in the incision lines

 

These risks and complications may include:

  • Respiratory depression and compromise
  • Cardiovascular depression and compromise
  • Increased risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
  • Prolonged nausea and vomiting
  • Extended hangover
  • Short-term and long-term amnesia (memory loss) are some of the significant side effects.

In any case, all surgical procedures carried out under General Anaesthesia or Twilight Sedation should only be performed in an accredited hospital under the supervision of a qualified anaesthetist.

 

Very high quantities of local anesthesia are known to cause systemic toxicity which can result in cardiovascular compromise. 

At Medisculpt, all procedures carried out under local anaesthesia are done using a minimal amount of local anaesthetic agent to ensure patient safety.

 

To be considered suitable for undergoing any elective cosmetic procedure, you have to:

  • Be physically fit and active
  • Have a balanced and healthy diet
  • Be of sound emotional/mental health
  • Have realistic expectations of the outcome

 

People unfit to undergo this procedure are:

  • Physically unwell with pre-existing medical conditions
  • Those with a history of keloid scarring
  • Those with unrealistic expectations
  • Those who are going through emotional stress and trauma
  • Those we are unable or unwilling to follow a healthy lifestyle (regarding their exercise and diet) after the surgery

 

The Mini Brow Lift is often combined with an Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty and/or a Mini Face Lift. 

 

We recommend that you do all your grocery shopping before surgery and restock your fridge and pantry with healthy food. We also recommend that you organise for someone to give you a lift back home as driving is not recommended for the first few days after the surgery. You should also consider arranging for a family member or friend to stay with you for the first few days after your surgery.

Additionally, ensure that you avoid blood-thinning medication such as Nurofen, Aspirin, Heparin and Warfarin. Please discuss this with your General Practitioner in detail and make sure you are aware of any side effects of your current medication.

Herbal medication and nutritional supplements such as St John’s Wart, garlic, ginger, ginseng, fish oil, and homeopathic or herbal tonics should also be ceased for at least two weeks before your surgery. These substances are known for their potential to thin blood and as such, may cause excessive bleeding during and after the surgery.

 

It is imperative that you follow the pre-surgical instructions given to you by our staff. Alcohol consumption and cigarette smoking are two primary culprits when it comes to increasing potential risks associated with any surgery. Please avoid these harmful agents for at least two weeks (or more) before your surgery.

Consumption of alcohol and cigarettes:

  • Interfere with the body's natural healing processes
  • Increase the pain and discomfort associated with any operation
  • Increase the risk of potential complications such as bleeding, wound infection and scarring
  • Prolong the recovery time.

 

In clinical practice, we have found that a herbal substance called Arnica is helpful in reducing bleeding during or after the surgery. It also aids healing and minimises bruising. This naturally occurring herb is available in the form of oral supplements and is found in most health food stores and pharmacies in Australia.

Above all, a healthy lifestyle, good sleep and a balanced nutritional diet after surgery are essential factors for optimum healing.

 

A cooling-off period of 2 weeks is required after your initial consultation to give you ample time to thoroughly evaluate the risks and benefits of your chosen elective cosmetic surgery.

At Medisculpt™ we want all our patients to feel completely confident in making their decision.

The Medisculpt® Difference

"Art, indeed, consists in the conception of the result to be produced before its realisation in the material." - Aristotle

The practice of aesthetic medicine and surgery is as much an art as it is a science. The aesthetic sense of a clinician in evaluating a patient is as important as his or her clinical skills. At Medisculpt®, our philosophy is to artistically enhance your appearance in a way that stresses elegance over glamour.
