Brow Lift

What is a Brow Lift?

Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift minimizes the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose; improves what are commonly referred to as frown lines; and repositions a low or sagging brow.

How do I know if a Brow Lift is right for me?

If you are bothered by expression lines or other signs of aging in the brow region, a brow lift may be right for you. A brow lift:

  • Minimizes the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose, between the eyes
  • Improves what are commonly referred to as frown lines, vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows
  • Repositions a low or sagging brow that is hooding the upper eyelid
  • Raises the eyebrows to a more alert and youthful position

What are the different types of Brow LIfts?

  • Coronal Procedure: This is the most common type of brow lift. This procedure involves the skin on the eyebrows to be pulled up. This procedure also removes the excess fat and skin on the eyebrow. It raises the hairline.
  • Endoscopic Browlift: This procedure involves making small incisions on the scalp. The plastic surgeon inserts an endoscope into the incisions and at the same time the surgeon inserts surgical instruments and lifts the forehead skin. The eyebrows are also lifted up. It is a noninvasive method.
  • Temporal Brow lift: The procedure involves making small incisions on the temples and is similar to endoscipic brow lift.
  • Corrugator muscle excision: In this procedure the corrugator muscle which is the root cause of frownlines is removed.
  • Direct brow lift: In this procedure involves making small incisions top of the eyebrows. The procedure doesn’t involve the hairline or the scalp and only affects the eyebrow.

Is the results long lasting?

Initial wound healing may take 5 to 10 days, at which time any sutures or clips will be removed. You will be ready to return to work and normal activity at this time. Cosmetics can camouflage any bruising that remains. Healing will continue for several weeks as the swelling dissipates and incision lines refine and fade and it may take several months for your complete recovery. Life-long sun protection will help to maintain your rejuvenated appearance by minimizing photo-aging or sun damage. In addition, a healthy lifestyle will also help extend the results of your rejuvenated, more youthful appearance. A brow lift is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.
