IMPORTANT NOTICE: At Fortis Healthcare, we are fully supportive of the National priorities set out by the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India. Further to the directives of the Government provided in their press release dated 8th Nov 2016, payments at Government hospitals can be made through 500 and 1000 Rupee denomination notes. In view of the hardship being caused to the large number of patients at private hospitals, we have made an urgent representation to the Government that this exemption should apply equally, for payments, at private hospitals. We are following up with the authorities and hope the Government will step in quickly to resolve this anomaly. Meanwhile, at Fortis hospitals across the country, we continue to accept payments through credit card, debit card and electronic banking transfers. As 500 and 1000 Rupee denomination notes are no longer legal tender we are only accepting 100 Rs and lower currency notes. As per Government regulation, a PAN card and legitimate ID proof is however required for payments in cash exceeding Rs 50,000. Meanwhile we continue to ensure that emergency cases get immediate medical attention without delay whatsoever and have put in more administrative staff and help desks to assist patients.

Brow lift

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift or forehead rejuvenation, is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the forehead, the brow and the area around the eyes.

During a brow lift, the soft tissue and skin of the forehead and brow are raised.

You might choose to have a brow lift if you have creases across your forehead or between your eyes or a low, sagging brow. A brow lift might also boost your self-confidence.

A brow lift can be done alone or with other facial procedures, such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or a face-lift.


Why it's done Risks How you prepare What you can expect Results

Aging typically causes the lines across the forehead and between the eyes to deepen. As skin and soft tissues lose elasticity, the distance between the eyebrows and eyelashes also shortens. The combination of low eyebrows and deep creases can make you look tired, angry or sad. A brow lift can soften facial lines, raise the eyebrows and restore a softer, more pleasing appearance.

You might consider a brow lift if you have:

  • Creases across your forehead or high on the bridge of your nose, between your eyes
  • Vertical creases between your eyebrows
  • A low or sagging brow that's contributing to sagging upper eyelids
