Brow lifts can help those seeking a more youthful appearance look more refreshed by correcting heavy, sagging brows and diminishing frown lines.
Under anesthesia or sedation, surgery will take place with small incisions made by a surgeon that lift and reposition tissues.
Brow lift surgery may also be combined with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) for improved results. Here are some major brow lift benefits.
1. Eliminate Lines and Wrinkles
Dependent upon the procedure chosen, brow lifts can effectively eliminate lines and wrinkles around the outer corners of your eyes – the site of most noticeable signs of aging such as crow’s feet.
A brow lift can also reduce the appearance of creases on your forehead or between your eyebrows, which is particularly helpful if your brows tend to droop as we age.
Your surgeon will administer anesthesia and then make incisions in specific locations to remove excess skin. They may alter underlying muscles as needed to reduce frown lines, with incisions either sutured, stapled, or taped closed afterward.
Endoscopic brow lift is one of the most sought-after approaches for tightening and smoothing a forehead area, making five tiny incisions in the hairline and inserting an endoscope (a thin tube with a camera on its end) as well as surgical instruments into each of them to tighten and shape this region. It is much less invasive than traditional coronal brow lifts while producing superior results.
A brow lift can be an ideal solution for anyone dissatisfied with how their upper face appears and wants to appear younger. Ideal candidates for this treatment have good overall health without any underlying medical conditions that would complicate surgery or recovery; have realistic expectations; are non-smokers or have quit smoking to expedite healing process.
2. Enhance Your Eyebrows
Lifting your brows can dramatically change the shape of your eyes and face, giving your appearance an increase of alertness and happiness while giving your face a more youthful appearance. Although results of brow lifts typically last several years, they won’t prevent skin elasticity loss as you age.
Your surgeon will use small incisions near the hairline to access underlying tissue, before tightening muscles and removing excess skin to increase eyebrow height. A brow lift may be performed alone or combined with another facial surgery procedure like upper eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) for enhanced results that also address signs of aging around the eyes.
After receiving a brow lift, you may experience swelling, bruising and discomfort; these side effects should subside as your incision lines heal. A brow lift may be an ideal option for men and women suffering from drooping foreheads or sagging eyebrows.
At your consultation, your surgeon will review your medical history and conduct a facial exam to ascertain whether you qualify for this surgery and recommend the optimal technique for you.

3. Eliminate Perpetually Tired Look
As we age, our faces often become permanently fatigued due to sagging forehead skin that makes us appear perpetually tired. Squinting or straining to see leads to headaches and other vision-related problems; but with a brow lift this problem can be solved by elevating forehead skin while simultaneously repositioning tissues and muscles underneath to eliminate deep wrinkles while tightening up around eyes area.
A brow lift can also address the position of your eyebrows to make you appear more alert and youthful. While neurotoxins such as Botox or Dysport may help achieve this result, a more permanent solution like a brow lift offers long-term results.
Endoscopic and coronal brow lift procedures involve your surgeon making several small incisions behind your hairline to loosen forehead skin, then accessing muscles, tissues and fat pads to tighten or remove areas as necessary before closing their incisions for a more even-appearing forehead.
A brow lift can be performed alone or combined with other facial plastic surgery procedures such as facelifting or neck lift to achieve total rejuvenation of the upper facial area. In many instances, it is combined with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) in order to remove extra skin or bags beneath the eyes. To learn more about a brow lift contact Schaffer Plastic Surgery now!
4. Make You Look Younger
Crease and wrinkles on your forehead can make you appear older than you really are, making you appear older than necessary. A brow lift helps address these creases by tightening skin for a younger-looking appearance; additionally it may open up eyes to make you appear happier and more vital.
Brow lift surgery can be completed using various techniques, depending on your facial anatomy and aesthetic goals. At HayatMed, we utilize minimally invasive endoscopic technique which involves making smaller incisions for faster healing; alternatively we can utilize traditional coronal procedure which uses incisions along the hairline so surgeons can manipulate muscle and skin in this area to adjust accordingly.
After having a brow lift, you are likely to experience some swelling and bruising that should resolve within several weeks. Prescription or over-the-counter painkillers may be necessary, while several days should be set aside from work and other activities for healing of your surgical site.
Brow lifts are one of the most effective anti-aging treatments for both men and women alike, however they won’t reverse all signs of aging; your face will eventually droop back down due to gravity. In order to maintain results from your brow lift treatment, it is important that you remain healthy by following a healthy lifestyle and avoiding sun damage.
