Gravity and aging can leave you with a heavy, drooping brow and deeply-etched forehead creases. Brow lift surgery lifts your entire upper facial appearance, smoothing and lifting the brow. The difference can be subtle but significant, as your eyes will appear more open and friendlier, and the angry, tired look will be gone.
What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift is a surgical procedure that concentrates on restoring a youthful appearance above the eyes. The procedure addresses the forehead, the eyebrow area, and lifts the eye zone to create a refreshed, rejuvenated look.
If you are one of the countless people with a heavy or drooping brow and visible forehead creases and feel that people respond to you differently due to your appearance, it may be time to undergo this facial rejuvenation surgery.
Hidden Incisions to Avoid Visible Scars
A brow lift involves a few options for incision placement, based upon individual issues of the patient. Very small incisions are made, hidden in the hairline so they are invisible. The size of the incisions and concealed location make it virtually impossible for visible scars to be left after the procedure.
Your brow is lifted by correcting the underlying muscles, lifting skin and tissue, and removing any excess to create a smoother, more youthful look to the upper facial area. The difference in your appearance can be surprising – while subtle, you are likely to get many comments about how great you look – they won’t know you had surgery. At Sadrian Plastic Surgery, we focus on creating natural-looking facial enhancements.
Am I a Candidate for a Brow Lift?
Most patients who can benefit from a brow lift are between 40 and 60 years old and in good general health. Some patients have inherited a heavy, overhanging brow as a family trait and want to enhance facial appearance with a brow lift, or forehead lift. You may be a candidate for this facial surgery if you struggle with any of the following:
- Heavy brow
- Drooping brow
- Excess skin on upper lids due to sagging skin on brow
- Vertical lines on brow
- Horizontal creases on brow
- Your face has taken on a tired, angry look as you age
What is an Endoscopic Forehead Lift?
Recent innovations in technology and techniques in cosmetic surgery have led to a less invasive approach for a brow lift or forehead lift, an endoscopic procedure. This approach entails tiny incisions, through which the endoscope is inserted. This surgical tool is a tiny camera with data revealed to our surgeon on a monitor, and the procedure performed with very specialized surgical tools to restore smoothness to the brow, while lifting the eyebrows, and creating a more look to your eyes.
