Here Is What A Simple Brow Lift Procedure Can Do For You
It is somewhat a harsh reality of life – we age with time. While some age beautifully, like gourmet wine still others aren’t as lucky. Unsightly lines appear on the forehead, frown and wrinkle lines that can change the demeanor of a person. Skin relaxation causes the eyebrows to drop as we age, bringing about a ‘constantly tired’ look. There are all signs of aging (in the brow region) which can be quite bothersome. Fortunately, a simple brow lift procedure can help!
Also known as a forehead lift, this type of cosmetic surgical procedure can help:
- Reduce wrinkle lines that develop on the forehead as well as on the bridge of the nose and between the eyes
- Improve frown lines, i.e. vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows
- Raise sagging brows that give upper eyelids a hooded look
- Provide a youthful and alert effect
Some other complementary cosmetic procedures can also be performed with a brow lift, such as:
- Upper and lower eyelid tucks
- Skin resurfacing techniques
Brow Lift Procedure – How Is It Performed?
Are you unhappy with the appearance of your eyebrows? Do you want to reverse signs of aging on your forehead? Are your eyes droopy or hooded? If you say yes to all, a brow lift may just be the cosmetic procedure for you!
As with all types of cosmetic procedures, it’s a good idea to know about this particular one. You can choose from 3 different cosmetic procedures for brow lift, based on your individual needs and desired outcome.
Endoscopic Forehead Lift
This has become a popular choice, seeing advancements have made endoscopic forehead lift a fairly easy and simple cosmetic procedure. Five small incisions, in inconspicuous places are made in the hairline. This is what allows the entire area (from hairline to brows) to be lifted. Endoscopic forehead lift helps rejuvenate upper portion of the face and restoring a firm, smooth, more youthful look.
Pretrichial Eyebrow/ Forehead Lift
A longer incision is made for this procedure, to remove a strip of skin and corresponding tissue (along the incision) completely. As a result, this cosmetic procedure lifts the eyebrows at the same time as raising and shortening forehead. People who have high foreheads can opt for this type of brow lift as it will lower the hairline.
Direct Brow Lift
In the direct brow lift cosmetic procedure, a section of skin and underlying tissue along and above eyebrow length is removed. There isn’t any need to touch the hairline in this procedure! Moreover, skin and tissue is brought down instead of up, which helps fix sagging brows and helps smooth and tighten the forehead.
Direct brow lifts are generally preferred by people who have a receding hairline or high forehead. A board certified plastic surgeon will make sure this and all other cosmetic procedures are perfectly safe and conceal incision scars for minimum detectability.
