Brow Lift Gone Wrong
How Lifting the Forehead Surgically Can Cause Cosmetic Medical Negligence
Brow lift surgery involves raising the forehead and eyebrow areas and tightening the muscles in that area before excising any loose skin and reducing excess fatty tissue to give a smoother facial appearance.
The ageing process causes a person’s skin to lose elasticity and muscles to slacken. Consequently the eyebrows begin to droop, wrinkles and frown lines appear and excess skin and fat accumulate giving the face an older and more tired look. A brow lift or forehead lift is a popular way of reversing these unwanted signs of ageing, as it smoothes out wrinkles on the forehead and reduces the amount of loose skin around the eyes.

How Brow Lift Surgery Works
Brow lift cosmetic surgery is usually performed under general anaesthetic. The procedure for brow lifting usually takes between one and two hours to complete depending on the technique used and whether the brow lift is combined with other plastic surgeries like facelifts, eyelid surgeries, or nose jobs.
There are two main methods to lift a patient’s forehead and eyebrow areas:
- In the classic or open brow lift procedure the cosmetic surgeon makes an incision across the length of the forehead, either around the hairline or in one of the creases of the forehead. The skin is then separated on the upper part of the face from the underlying tissue and the cosmetic surgeon reduces or tightens the muscles. The forehead skin is then stretched and stitched into place and any excess skin removed.
- The most common brow lift however is an endoscopic brow lift which is carried out through small incisions in the scalp behind the hairline. This brow lift is performed using an endoscope or small camera on the end of a thin tube which is issued to pass through the incisions and underneath the forehead skin. The cosmetic surgeon can then see the tissues and muscles on a screen and can proceed to manoeuvre tissues and remove any excess skin and fatty tissue as well as segments of muscles. The eyebrows are then lifted from the forehead connections and repositioned in the desired place and secured with stitches.
A brow lift error may occur however when the cosmetic surgeon exercises poor surgical technique or doesn’t provide competent care resulting in additional pain and suffering for the patient. If you have been the victim of cosmetic medical negligence during or after a brow lift surgery, then you should call Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors on 0800 634 0285 for expert advice on how to make a successful claim for brow lift compensation.
What Can Go Wrong with a Brow Lift?
Recovery after surgery to lift the forehead can take up to three weeks and most brow lifts are successful in their aims. If, however, there is a negligent brow lift then you may experience the following complications:
- Uneven or asymmetric eyebrows
- Nerve damage or numbness in and around the forehead
- Impaired eyebrow movement
If you have been affected by any of these indications of negligence during or after a brow lift surgery then we may be able to assist you in making a claim for financial compensation. Speak to Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors today on 0800 634 0285 to start an eyebrow lift surgery claim.
