Cosmetic Surgeon of the year finalist 2018



Rejuvenation of the forehead and eyebrows is known as brow lift procedure. It aims to compensate for the gradual lowering in the brow position that occurs with ageing, in men and women. The pattern of ageing is somewhat different depending on hereditary characteristics, but also different between men and women. This procedure may be required following upper eyelid reduction (Blepharoplasty) due to decompensation of the brow elevation musculature. This is a separate procedure from the eyelid reduction operation itself.

The operations aimed at restoring a more youthful brow shape involve an endoscopic forehead lift. It is performed through several small incisions in the hair behind the hairline. The dissection is assisted with use of an endoscope, hence the name. At the time of the surgery the frown muscles can be weakened, but it is usually better not to destroy them completely as the position of the brows can then change.

The procedure is carried out as a general anaesthetic and most commonly involves an overnight stay. It is frequently associated with a facelift or eyelids operation.

After your Operation

Expect some bruising around the forehead and possible headaches for the first few days. It is wise to limit the activity levels in order to keep the bruising under control.

The position of the eyebrows starts a little higher than the end-result, but will usually settle within the first few months.The main risks related to this type of procedure are decreased sensation in the forehead which is most commonly temporary.

I chose Mr Armstrong to carry out my facelift surgery after a lot of extensive and careful research. I was impressed with his academic credentials and his professional experience, noting that he had worked in some of the most prestigious medical institutions.

At my first consultation with Mr Armstrong I felt totally reassured that I would be in a safe pair of hands by the clarity with which he described all aspects of the facelift procedure I was requesting.  He explained everything to me in a clear and precise manner and in an unrushed and very thorough way. Together we agreed the best procedure for me, a 63 year old woman, would be a facelift plus an upper eyelid reduction and fat transfers to my cheeks, nasolabial lines and marionette lines.

I am now three weeks post-operation and the results have far exceeded my expectations.  I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I still look like me but a younger fresher version.  My droopy eyelids and hanging jowls have gone and my face and eyes look energised and revitalised.  My friends have been amazed at the transformation with one describing me as looking "sensational"!

Mr Armstrong's care before, during and after the procedure has been exemplary, and, along with his nursing staff,  I was thoroughly well looked after in a most kind, caring and professional manner.

I highly recommend Mr Armstrong to anybody considering surgery.  He is a highly skilled surgeon with a  safe and competent pair of hands.  My only regret is that I didn't do it five years earlier.
