A brow lift is an increasingly popular form of cosmetic surgery and although it is one of the simpler procedures, it is still prone to the kind of surgical error that can result in long-term repercussions both physically and mentally.
The ageing process causes skin to lose its elasticity and muscles can also start to slacken. This can begin to affect your appearance and cause wrinkles and frown lines on the forehead where excess skin and fat accumulates. A brow lift reduces the amount of loose skin around the eyes and is a popular way of reversing these signs of ageing.
What problems can occur with a brow lift?
To enable fat to be removed and the skin to be adjusted, the brow lift process requires incisions to be made above the eyebrows. Therefore, it is perfectly normal to experience some wounding after surgery and for this to take a few weeks to heal. However, if other problems have occurred that appear to be more deep-rooted or long term, then it is possible you have been subjected to brow lift negligence, and may be entitled to seek compensation to cover the discomfort, suffering and the financial difficulties you might subsequently face.
Common problems encountered following brow lift negligence include:
- Asymmetrical eyebrows
- Nerve damage or numbness above the eyebrows
- Impaired eyebrow movement
- Wrinkles or creases returning or a general dissatisfaction with the outcome
Nobody should have to put up with the negative impact of negligent cosmetic surgery, as it can have many challenging implications on your life. All medical procedures carry some risk but these should be fully explained to you before you agree to proceed with any surgery. Furthermore, direct surgical error can cause you great discomfort and have a deep impact on your life physically, emotionally and financially.
