Benefits of Brow Lift
Forehead wrinkles and low, sagging brows occur when the skin, muscles, and tissues of the forehead and brows gradually become looser. Fortunately, there are effective procedures available to elevate the brows and treat wrinkles on the forehead, such as brow lifts.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift or eyebrow lift, is a cosmetic procedure that can help you achieve a youthful appearance by lifting the brow area, smoothing wrinkles, and tightening sagging skin on the forehead. It may improve the look of the eye area as well. Other benefits include:
- Improve the look of sagging eyelids
- Restore the appearance of a smooth forehead
- Soften the look of crow’s feet
- Enhance the position of the eyebrows on the face
Types of Brow Lift
A brow lift can be achieved with both traditional and minimally invasive methods.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
This type of brow lift is performed under anesthesia. The surgeon makes small incisions directly behind the hairline and uses equipment to gently raise the position of the skin on the forehead. The eyebrows may also be elevated during this procedure.
Temporal Brow Lift
During a temporal brow lift, you are placed under anesthesia while your surgeon uses precise equipment to carefully lift the targeted sagging eyebrow areas. This procedure is even more gentle than an endoscopic brow lift and is characterized by a faster recovery time and smaller incisions.
Classic Brow Lift
Classic brow lift entails a long incision that is made behind the ear and extends across the perimeter of the forehead reaching the other ear. Your surgeon will remove any excess skin, fat, and tissue while elevating the brow position and lifting the skin on the forehead. This technique provides dramatic and lasting results.
If looking refreshed by summer is your goal, having this procedure done earlier in the year allows you to recover before summer — just in time to enjoy those peak sunny days.
