The Benefits of a Brow Lift

Do you look like you are always scowling? Do people say that you have hooded eyes like a snake? That can be changed for you with a brow lift.

What is a Brow Lift?

The face is prone to aging just like the rest of the body. Years of smiling, frowning and worrying can take its toll. A brow lift just helps you not to look like youíve spent a lifetime doing these things. It is also referred to as ìbrowplasty.î The brow line is tilted up to give the patient a more alert look like when they were several years younger.

Patients may come to see a cosmetic surgeon or an oculoplastic surgeon because it seems like their lids are drooping and obscuring their vision. In some cases, the problem is not the lids but the brow that is sagging and causing the issue. Repositioning the brow can make a huge difference.

The Benefits of a Brow Lift

What can be gained by having this procedure performed?

Fewer forehead creases ñ Lifting the brow minimizes that furrow on the forehead and also if you have one high up between the eyes.

Raises the brow ñ With a higher brow, your expression is more lively and youthful.

Remove the blinders ñ The part of the brow that is obscuring your vision will be elevated out of the way.

Can be minimally invasive ñ This depends on the procedure used but mostly the incisions are small and can be hidden beneath bangs in women. Sutures are usually absorbable so there is only a small scar that will fade with time.

Types of Brow Lift Procedures

Now that you know some of the benefits, hereís how you can get them.

Endoscopic Brow Lift

This procedure uses an endoscope and camera to complete the procedure. Small incisions are made on the upper forehead and a scope is inserted. Endoscopic instrumentation is used to raise the skin off of the bony skull so it can be repositioned. Lifting the skin will smooth out wrinkles. Sutures are then anchored to the bone to maintain the elevation of the brow.

Recovery time is lower because there are just two small incisions made. You can get back to your normal routine in a few days. Because the incisions are small, it is good for men who may not have a lot of hair anymore.

Traditional Brow Lift

Under general anesthesia, incisions are made below the hairline across the forehead. Skin is lifted so that the wrinkled can be smoothed out as the skin is raised. Excess skin is removed and sutures are placed. The incision is longer so there is a longer recovery time.

The results of brow lift surgery can last up to 10 years or more.
