Has anyone ever told you that you look tired or angry? If you are dealing with sagging in your eyebrows and wrinkles in the upper third of your face, then you may be a good candidate for a brow lift.
Read on to learn more about this plastic surgery and why you should consider it.
- Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift consists of removing sagging of the brow and excess skin and sagging on the forehead, and repositions the underlying muscles and tissues.
- This surgery also improves the appearance of horizontal wrinkles on the forehead and bridge of the nose and the vertical “11 lines” or frown lines between the eyebrows.
- Many patients may choose to have other procedures that would complement their brow lift and achieve their aesthetic goals. This surgery can be combined with eyelid surgery, face lift and skin resurfacing.
- Candidates are in good general health, do not smoke or plan to quit, and have a positive outlook and realistic expectations for the outcome of surgery.
- A brow lift can be performed either as a traditional brow lift or an endoscopic brow lift. For a traditional brow lift, an incision will be made from one ear across the top of the head behind the hairline and down to the other ear. Excess skin and fat are removed, and the remaining skin and muscle are tightened and repositioned before the incision is closed.
- With an endoscopic brow lift, several small incisions are made within the hairline, and a camera is inserted through one incision to help give a visual of what needs to be done, while instruments that will manipulate the tissue will be inserted through the other incisions.
- No matter which approach your surgeon takes with your brow lift, you will achieve beautiful results and the same, youthful appearance.
