Is Mr Morgan experienced in this procedure?
Mr David Morgan is comfortable operating around the delicate structures of the face and is completely confident with the brow lift procedure. He will be able to show you photographs of his own patients, to help you get a better idea about the treatment and the results.
How is it performed?
A browlift is performed under general anaesthesia and usually involves one or two nights stay in hospital, depending upon the technique chosen. Most commonly, small incisions are made behind the hairline to allow instruments to lift the forehead skin and muscles, and reposition them, leaving minimal scarring. Other techniques can involve longer scars in or behind the hairline.
Bruising and swelling will often affect the area around your eyes and will usually resolve within two weeks. A sense of numbness or tightness in the forehead is common. This surgery can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as a facelift (meloplasty), eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), or rhinoplasty.
How long will I need to recover?
Everyone will experience an anaesthetic or recover from an operation differently. Although uncommon, complications can also occur and result in a longer recovery time. Generally, most patients will recover sufficiently in three weeks to return to social activity and office-based work. More physical activity may require an extra time.
All surgical procedures carry risks.
Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Cosmetic surgery is real surgery, and will most often require a general anaesthetic. All surgery will require a period of recovery before returning to normal activity. Although uncommon, complications can and do occur, and may affect the final result of your surgery. The potential risks will be discussed fully during your consultations, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions about the various risks in your particular circumstance. Risks may include poor quality scarring, excessive bruising and swelling, infection, bleeding, pain, asymmetry, nerve injury, anaesthetic complications, unsatisfactory cosmetic outcomes, the need for further surgery, and permanent disability or death.
As a Specialist Plastic Surgeon, Mr Morgan is appropriately trained and qualified to deal with complications of surgery, including the ability to admit you to hospital, if required.
