Forehead Lift / Brow Lift

What is a Forehead lift/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.

Why should I concider a brow lift?

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 other procedures can be done along with a brow lift?

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.

What types of brow lifts are there?

There are four different kinds of brow lifts that can be preformed

  • Coronal BrowLift: Incision is placed behind the hairline. This technique elevates the eyebrows, smoothes the forehead, and elevates the hairline about half an inch.
  • Trichophytic (Hairline) Brow Lift: Incision is placed within the hairline. This technique elevates the eyebrows, and smoothes the forehead. The hairline is not elevated
  • Temporal Brow Lift: The temporal brow lift is a procedure in which smaller incisions are made in the temple region of the forehead and scalp. Most of the incision is hidden in the scalp with a small portion placed on the side of the forehead
  • Endoscopic Brow Lift: The endoscopic brow lift is a procedure elevating the brow without excising any skin.  Several small incisions are made behind the hairline, the skin of the forehead is repositioned and secured in an elevated position using an endoscope and specialized instruments.
