Over time, skin can start to sag as it thins and loses elasticity. This, along with sun exposure, stress, and other causes of skin aging can lead to drooping or asymmetrical eyebrows.
A brow lift is a cosmetic procedure that can counteract signs of aging in the eyebrows and forehead. With a brow lift, you can address sagging eyebrows and forehead wrinkles for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
What Does a Brow Lift Involve?
A brow lift can raise the position of the eyebrows on the face, correct asymmetry between the eyebrows, and reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles. There are multiple techniques that can be used in a brow lift to reach your desired results.
One approach, called an endoscopic brow lift, involves multiple, small incisions made at the hairline. An endoscope, a small camera used in surgery, is then inserted below the skin to show the tissues and muscles. Your surgeon will then lift and reposition the tissue, as needed.
A coronal brow lift involves an incision extending from ear to ear over the top of your head. From there, the forehead can be lifted and repositioned.
A hairline brow lift is completed through an incision that stretches from the top of the forehead to the hairline. With this method, some skin and tissue is removed from the forehead, leaving the hairline unchanged.
Your doctor will select the best brow lift method to achieve your cosmetic goals. Other cosmetic procedures like eyelid surgery or face lift surgery may also be performed at the same time as a brow lift.
What Are the Benefits of a Brow Lift?
Brow lift surgery can provide more benefits to your appearance than just lifting the eyebrows. Other benefits include:
- Improvement to the symmetry of your face
- A smoother, more youthful appearance
- Improvement to hooded eyelids
- Fewer forehead wrinkles
- Fewer wrinkles around the eyes and on the bridge of the nose
