Brow lift surgery has seen an increase in recent years. This cosmetic procedure involves removing excess skin and fatty tissue from the brow area by making incisions over the brow or near the hairline, and then tightening the muscles to improve the overall appearance.
Although a brow lift is a relatively minor procedure, the outcome of it can change a lot more than just the appearance of a person’s brow or forehead. When carried out correctly, it may also improve an individual’s confidence and self esteem. However, sometimes the actual results may differ from the desired outcome and the treatment may on occasions be carried out negligently.
Problems following negligent brow lift surgery
As with any invasive cosmetic procedure, there are risks attached to performing a brow lift and if the brow lift is performed negligently it may result in:
- nerve and/or muscle damage (resulting in pain or numbness)
- brow and/or facial asymmetry
- excessive bleeding
- inefficacy or extremely short temporary effect
- adverse reactions to the anaesthetic
- impaired movement
- psychological damage
A brow lift, which has gone wrong, may cause discomfort, self consciousness and emotional distress and further reconstructive surgery and/or corrective procedures may be required. Psychological issues may also result from the negligent procedure. Our cosmetic surgery solicitors understand this and can also advise on lack of informed consent issues.
