Brow Lift

Wrinkling across the forehead, which is the result of aging skin that is losing its elasticity, pulls down the eyebrows. Sagging eyebrows, deep grooves between the eyes, and forehead wrinkling can be corrected by a forehead or brow lift, which either tightens loose skin or removes excess skin. In some cases, it is necessary to remove part of the muscles that cause frown lines between the brows. An eyebrow lift itself, however, will not correct scars, age spots, or fine lines. The texture of the skin can be improved by accompanying procedures such as laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels and botulinum toxin injections and dermal fillers can help with wrinkles. Botulinum toxin injection temporarily paralyzes the muscle that creates wrinkles, while dermal fillers “fill in” the glabellar creases between the eyebrows.

Before surgery, we will discuss your individual skin type, ethnic background, degree of skin elasticity, healing and basic bone structure so that we may select the best method to achieve your goals.

Several techniques can be used: The coronal brow lift is the most traditional approach. The endoscopic forehead lift is the next most common variant. Less commonly, hairline, mid brow, or above the eyebrow incisions will be suggested in certain circumstances. With the coronal approach, an incision will be made from ear to ear, slightly behind the natural hairline (so the scar is not visible) along the top of the head, where a headband or headset would be worn. The incision may be made just at the hairline if it is high to avoid increasing the length of the forehead. Those with a receding hairline may prefer an incision along the natural pattern of the skull bones, mid-scalp, or above the eyebrow. The endoscopic forehead lift can be advantageous because it minimizes the incisions within the scalp and patients typically have a shorter recovery period.
