Do people around you often assume that you are tired?
Sometimes it can be embarrassing for you to hear that you look tired despite it being early morning. While managing work and running errands we generally tend to overlook the early signs of ageing like droopy brows, but the onlookers can spot these signs and may often assume that either you are tired, angry or sad.
While you cannot prevent ageing, you can defy these early signs of ageing by using cosmetic surgery to lift the brows. Eyebrow lift surgery helps in stabilizing and lifting the outer brow thereby contributing to the fullness of the upper eyelid.
Let me introduce you to Andrea, a restaurant manager from Scotland, who defied the early signs of ageing with eyebrow lift surgery.
Andrea, a 46-year -old restaurant manager was passionate about her job and loved to serve her customers. She loved meeting new people and wished to stay in the customer service domain. However, ageing caught on to her and her eyebrows began to droop which made her look tired almost every time. Her colleagues and customers frequently assumed that she was tired.
Andrea’s employer also felt that she was tired of handling this profile for so long and suggested her a back office job. Andrea knew that in the restaurant business she needs to look youthful and presentable to her guests. But doing a back office job was not acceptable for Andrea. On the advice of her employer Andrea joined the back office team but she yearned for her last position.
However, instead of getting disheartened, Andrea knew that it was time to fight back against these signs. Andrea started searching for cosmetic clinics to fix her ageing signs and she found a cosmetic surgeon in Glasgow. But Andrea was not sure about getting treated by the doctor as she felt that the doctor’s aesthetic approach was not matching to hers.
Andrea started looking for cosmetic clinics that offered brow lift surgery. While searching online Andrea came across to MedicoExperts and left her query with us. Our sales team contacted her and arranged an online consultation for her with one of our brow lift surgery expert doctors from the list of our empaneled doctors.
During the video consultation, the doctor answered her queries of Andrea’s and cleared her doubts. Andrea felt confident about undergoing the brow lift surgery and flew to India to get the procedure done.
Once Andrea reached India MedicoExperts ensured hassle-free hospitalization for her. Soon after the hospitalization, the doctors suggested some pre-procedure tests to confirm Andrea’s eligibility to undergo a brow lift surgery.
After the doctor confirmed Andrea’s eligibility for the brow lift surgery she underwent the procedure. Within a few days, Andrea could see the effects of the surgery and she was very happy to see how the surgery turned out for her.
Andrea said,” I can’t believe this, I feel that I look much younger than I did before the procedure.”
Like Andrea, you too can reverse the ageing clock for you with brow lift surgery.
Let us understand more about brow lift surgery.
What is a brow lift surgery?
A brow lift is a surgical approach that helps men and women to reverse early signs of ageing by raising the skin of the forehead thereby lifting your saggy brow, and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.

Generally, brow lift surgery is coupled with other procedures like a facelift to give you better results.
Why is brow surgery done?
Almost everyone has a desire to look young, and attractive, but it is not easy to dodge the signs of ageing naturally. Droopy eyebrows and eyelids are one of the most common early signs of ageing because the skin and soft tissues around the eyes lose their elasticity.
To correct the drooping of eyelids you can undergo an eyebrow lift surgery. The eyebrow lift can brighten your eyes while ensuring you achieve an alert and youth look.

The first thing that comes to everyone’s mind once they think of any procedure is what are the different approaches they can take to achieve the desired result.
Well! If an eyebrow lift surgery is on your bucket list you must be aware of the following different procedures that your doctor may suggest:
Endoscopic brow lift surgery is a minimally invasive procedure to correct your droopy eyelids. During an endoscopic brow lift, your surgeon makes a few small incisions of about 3-4 inches just behind the hairline.
During an endoscopic brow lift, your surgeon inserts small tubes that carry a camera and other surgical tools. The camera helps the surgeon manipulate surgical instruments to remove the excess fat and tissue.
Once the fats are removed your surgeon re-drapes the skin and muscles of the forehead thereby giving you a natural and more youthful brow.
A temporal brow lift or the limited incision brow lift is usually coupled with eyelid surgery.
During temporal brow lift surgery, your surgeon makes an incision of about 1 inch just above the temple behind the hairline. Through these incisions, your surgeon repositions and lifts the tissue of the outer brow area.
The Coronal Brow lift procedure is an invasive approach to correct your drooping eyelids. During coronal brow lift surgery, your doctor makes a long incision just behind the hairline. The incision extends from ear to ear.
Through the incision, your doctor removes the excess skin, fat, and tissues while repositioning the skin and brow muscles.
Typically, during a brow lift surgery, the surgeon removes the underlying excess fat and muscles followed by alteration and re-draping of the skin. This entire procedure helps to give a smooth, wrinkle-free forehead and elevated eyebrows.

But if your eyebrow has a nice arch or is at the height that you want it to be, then an upper blepharoplasty may be what you need.
