A brow lift can help remove excess droopy skin from the forehead and minimize the tired and angry look. The procedure is usually performed in a hospital or outpatient surgery center. The surgeon will use sedation or general anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the operation.
The endoscopic eyebrow/forehead lift is a popular technique, requiring small incisions behind the hairline so any scarring will be hidden. It also powerfully addresses forehead wrinkles and can improve brow shape and asymmetry.
Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
The forehead and eyebrows significantly affect how your face expresses emotion. However, these areas can also be the first place to show signs of aging. The underlying muscles can lose tone and elasticity, leading to wrinkles and sagging. The result is a more aged appearance that can make you look tired or angry, even when you are not. A brow lift can benefit men and women looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes.
There are many different ways to perform an eyebrow lift. One way is to use an endoscopic technique involving a series of small incisions that our team can hide behind your hairline. Another method is a direct brow lift, which uses a single incision close to your brow line. Both methods can reduce the appearance of forehead and brow lines and wrinkles without damaging important nerves, vessels or muscles.
Before the surgery, you should discuss your medical history with our surgeon. This includes any pre-existing conditions or surgeries that you have had. It would help if you also told them about your medications, including over-the-counter supplements. It would help to stop smoking before the procedure, as this can decrease blood flow and slow healing.
It makes your eyes look bigger.
A brow lift can improve your appearance if you have drooping or heavy upper eyelids. A skilled plastic surgeon can tighten loose skin on the forehead and reduce wrinkles around the eyes, making them appear more open and awake. Sometimes, a brow lift can make your eyes look bigger and brighter. This makes you look more approachable to others and helps you make a great impression in your personal and professional lives.
As you age, your facial muscles and tissues lose their elasticity. You may develop wrinkles on your forehead or the corners of your eyes (crow’s feet). Gravity can also pull your brow down and cause it to frown. These changes can give you a sad, angry or tired expression despite feeling well-rested. A brow lift can reposition the eyebrows, smooth forehead wrinkles, and minimize the appearance of crow’s feet.
The procedure can be performed through several different techniques. The endoscopic browlift involves small incisions made behind the hairline. In these incisions, your surgeon inserts a long thin tube with a camera and light mounted at the end. This allows him to see the muscles and tissues beneath. Your surgeon can remove or modify the muscles and tissues using another instrument. They can raise your brows and anchor them with sutures or small screws.
It makes your face look more youthful.
Brow lift surgery helps to restore your natural beauty by raising the soft tissues of the forehead and eyebrows. This reduces droopiness and creates a more youthful facial appearance. It can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes. It can even eliminate horizontal lines on the forehead, which make you look weighed down and aged.
A brow lift can be done using different methods, depending on your needs and the results you want to achieve. Some methods are more invasive than others, but the results are usually comparable. For example, the classic lift involves a larger incision that smooths the forehead and lifts the brow into a higher position. Alternatively, you can choose a less invasive option called the lateral brow lift. This method uses a small incision hidden above the lateral brow so that any scarring will be well concealed.
Whether you choose the classic or lateral brow lift, the procedure will be performed while you are under local anesthesia and intravenous sedation. Your surgeon will make the necessary incisions, typically closed, using dissolving sutures or special clips. A few sterile bandages will be placed to protect your incisions as they heal.
Reduces the appearance of crow’s feet
The brow lift is a cosmetic surgery that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It can also help reduce the appearance of crow’s feet around your eyes. It is a popular procedure among men and women who want to look younger. Many people report being satisfied with their results several years after a brow lift.
Before you have a brow lift, your plastic surgeon will take a medical history and physical exam. They will discuss why you want a brow lift and your expectations about your appearance afterward.
The surgeon will use small scalp incisions that are hidden within your hairline. An endoscope (a pencil-like scope connected to a display monitor) is inserted into one of the incisions. It lets your plastic surgeon see the muscles and tissues beneath the skin. The surgeon will remove or modify these tissues and muscles to produce a smoother forehead skin surface. The eyebrows are lifted and secured into a higher position by absorbable fixation devices inserted through another incision.
A direct lift is similar to a classic browlift but is performed closer to the eyebrow. It is ideal for people with a crease in the middle of their forehead or a “heavy” brow. A direct lift can be used alone or with other cosmetic procedures, such as eyelids or facelifts.
