A new survey has claimed that the majority of people who look to beat the signs of ageing by having a brow lift would opt to have the work carried out again. Research conducted in Germany, and published in the latest issue of the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery journal, looked at patients who had undergone procedures at the University Hospital Rechts der Isar of the Munich Technical University.The operations were carried out between 1994 and 2007, with the average follow-up appointment completed around three years later. Dr Nikolaos Papadopulos and a team of researchers reviewed almost 100 cases, mostly women. Just under two-thirds (63 per cent) of those surveyed said they would either "definitely" or "likely" have the work done again. A similar number of people said they would recommend the cosmetic procedure to a friend. According to Dr Nitin Chauhan, a plastic and reconstructive surgery expert at the University of Canada in Toronto, people who choose a forehead lift over non-invasive wrinkle procedures such as Botox injections do so as they can expect to see more dramatic results that last longer. However, while there isn't usually any kind of recovery period associated with injectable treatments, forehead lift patients can face a number of weeks out of action.
