As you age, you might notice the development of expression lines and sagging of the forehead. A brow lift in Sydney can assist you in achieving smooth and youthful looking skin above the eyes for a refreshed appearance. This procedure targets drooping brows, horizontal lines along the forehead and vertical creases between the eyebrows that often contribute to an angry or tired appearance.

Your Treatment with Dr. Tim
Dr. Tim and his entire staff are actively involved in each patient’s treatment, from consultation through recovery. He customizes every procedure to match the person’s individualized needs, and creates surgical plans based on those needs. You can also feel comfortable knowing that Dr. Tim has traveled around the world to train with experts in plastic surgery, and he uses this experience in providing optimal results for all of his patients.
Dr. Tim designed an innovative express recovery process which minimizes the time and pain associated with most recovery periods. Many patients are pleasantly surprised at the level of comfort they feel during recovery.
What to Expect
Brow lifts typically begin with an incision that is hidden in the hairline. This allows Dr. Tim to adjust muscles that commonly cause furrowing, and reposition or remove tissue. This results in a smoother forehead, gently elevated eyebrows and fewer frown lines.
Using a blepharoplasty incision (upper eyelid), Dr. Tim is able to thin and shape a prominent brow fat pad through a technique called browplasty. He may also support the brow to a higher location by reinforcing its connection to underlying bone with sutures. This method – called browpexy – requires no additional scarring along the scalp or face, and may be performed at the time of upper eyelid surgery. All of the incisions should be well-hidden within the hairline or within the natural creases of the eyelid.
You should see results from your brow lift procedure within 5 to 10 days, and full recovery from bruising is typically seen at 2 to 3 weeks. Most of Dr. Tim’s patients experience final results at 4 weeks, but are able to return to work much sooner than that. General skin care and protection from excessive sun exposure can help you enjoy long-lasting results for up to 10 years.
Some patients find that a brow lift can’t rejuvenate their entire complexion to the degree they desire. Dr. Tim often combines this procedure with an eyelid lift, face lift or neck lift. Regardless of the procedures you choose for your facial rejuvenation, you can feel comfortable knowing that Dr. Tim will guide you through the entire process.
