Brow Lift Negligence

What is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift is a procedure that aims to raise your eyebrows and eyelids to open up the area surrounding your eyes, as well as smoothing out wrinkles on your forehead. There are two recognised approaches to do a Brow Lift:
Classic – this is where one incision is made from ear-to-ear and around the top of your hairline.
Endoscopic -  this is where a number of small incisions are made around your hairline. The surgeon then uses small surgical instruments to make changes to your brow. This approach is more favoured nowadays as it is less invasive, but there is some debate as to whether the classic or endoscopic lift is most effective. However, the choice of one over the other is often surgeon preference and utilising one over the other is not necessarily cause to suspect negligence. 

The procedure is usually performed in private hospitals, though occasionally on the NHS. responsibility for any issues following the surgery often lies with the clinician individually, though sometimes with the Hospital or perhaps both. 

How can negligence cause issues after my Brow Lift?

Many people in the UK undergo a Brow Lift it with no long-term issues at all. There are however occasions when complications may arise either during the procedure or afterwards, and sometimes this is due to the negligence of the surgeon or team carrying out the procedure and post-care.
Examples of issues that may arise include:
•    Infection in the surgical sites
•    Scarring across your brow or face
•    Numbness above your eyebrows, and a reduction in your eyebrow movement

These issues are acknowledged as potential risks of undergoing a Brow Lift and undesired results are not necessarily due to negligence. However, should your care fall below-accepted standards either during the procedure or afterwards and as a result any of these issues are caused or made worse, then you may be able to make a claim for compensation on the grounds of negligence.
