As we age, it’s inevitable that wrinkles will begin to develop in the forehead or between the eyebrows, sometimes resulting in an aged, worried, or tired appearance. Aesthetik Profile in Melbourne offers brow and forehead lift as a surgical solution to counter the signs of ageing.
Dr Carmen Munteanu is a specialist plastic surgeon and browlift expert. She provides dedicated and compassionate care to her patients who wish to undergo this surgery and reshape their forehead.
A brow and forehead lift involves lifting the skin around the eyes and on the forehead to restore it to a natural, higher position, thus reducing the appearance of horizontal lines across the forehead, and vertical creases between the eyebrows.
Through advanced surgical techniques and technology, Dr Carmen Munteanu is able to achieve natural-looking results for her patients to address a range of issues including:
A brow and forehead lift is performed in a single surgery, normally under a general anaesthetic, and requires minimal post-surgery downtime.
A brow and forehead lift is a surgical procedure to lift the skin on the forehead and eyes back to a higher position, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines. This restores a refreshed look in the face by also raising the eyebrows, sagging skin deposits, and wrinkled skin.
During your brow and forehead lift surgery consultation, Dr Carmen will evaluate your general health and identify any risk factors. As part of this your complete medical history, current medications, vitamin and herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and drug usage will be taken into consideration.
As part of this evaluation, Dr Carmen will also examine and measure different parts of your face and take photographs. Following this, Dr Carmen will discuss your options, recommend a course of treatment, and provide you with the likely outcome of your surgery and any potential complications.
Prior to your brow and forehead lift procedure, you will be anaesthetised. In general this surgery takes between one and two hours, but this can vary depending on the exact treatment decided on by you and Dr Carmen.
Following the surgery the incisions will be closed using sutures or clips and dressed with a wrap to aid the healing process and minimise bruising and swelling. You may also have a thin tube attached to aid in draining any excess fluid or blood from the incision.
It is important to follow the aftercare instructions Dr Carmen will provide you with. This will include how to clean the incisions, prescribed medication and creams, recovery times for different activities, and your follow-up appointment. Please ensure you keep your head elevated during the recovery period, and ensure you don’t apply ice or heated packs to the area.
Initial wound healing will generally take between 10 and 14 days, and you should be able to resume normal activities around this time. The sutures or clips will be removed as appropriate.
Generally healing will continue over several more weeks, and the full recovery period may take several months. Makeup can help you to camouflage any bruising in the area.
It is of utmost importance to follow the personalised aftercare instructions provided to ensure the success of your surgery.
At your initial consultation, you will be given a detailed quote for your chosen procedure. This will include a Surgeon’s fee, Anaesthetist fee, Surgical Assistant fee and the hospital fees.
Dr Carmen’s team will provide you a customised fee for your surgery depending on the type of procedure, hospital and how long you want to stay in hospital. An approximate fee range for your arm lift surgery can be provided over the phone when you speak to a Patient Care Advisor. We also provide information on different methods of payment.

The initial results of your brow and forehead lift will be immediately visible, but the full results may take a few months to appear as the healing process progresses.
To help maintain your rejuvenated appearance it is recommended that you apply sun protection daily and maintain a healthy lifestyle to extend the longevity of the results.
