A brow lift, also known as forehead lift, is a cosmetic procedure done to raise the forehead, brow and area around the eye to give a younger and rejuvenated look. It is done by raising the soft tissue and skin of the forehead or brow.
By aging or genetically, brows can get low and sagging and it can also impact the brow symmetry. This can give a droopy look and can also cause fine lines on the forehead. Brow lift procedure helps in correcting the sagging brows by uplifting the brows, forehead and area around it causing the eyes to look clear and wide open. The procedure helps in improving self-confidence and self-image.
Some may prefer to go for brow lift procedure alone while others might consider it to be done along with eye-lif and face-lift surgery.
Aging leads to the drooping of eyelids and eyebrows as the soft tissue of the eyelids and surrounding areas start to lose its elasticity. Subsequently, the gap between the eyelids and eyelashes decreases.
The sagged lower portion of the eyebrows might impact your looks causing you to look sad, angry or tired. A brow lift procedure will help you in restoring a fresh and more pleasing look.
You might consider brow lift procedure if you have low, sagging brows that contribute to causing sagging of the upper eyelid.
Formation of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead with age is a natural phenomenon. Wrinkles and fine lines also appear due to the constant movement of muscles, which makes a person look older than their actual age. The new formation of lines also make people appear stressed, angry, unapproachable, and unpleasant.
But the good thing is that advances in medical technology, especially in the field of cosmetic treatment, has made it possible for doctors and surgeons to eliminate these awful looking wrinkles and fine lines.
Brow lift surgery is one such advanced cosmetic procedure that helps provide a youthful, smooth and fresh look to people looking forward to bring a new spark to their appearance. Brow lift, also known forehead lift, revives the facial area above the eyes to give a young and refreshed look. Brow lift works by removing the excess sagging of skin on the forehead and repositioning the brow line to an ideal position.
There are different types of brow lift surgeries, choice, and selection of which is dependent on the candidate’s unique facial features, requirements and the need and amount of corrections required to get the desired results.
The procedural steps depend on the type of brow lift surgery being carried out. The following are the three most common types of brow lift surgeries:
This is the traditional technique for eyebrow lift but has now fallen out with recent improvement and advancement made by surgeons. This technique requires patients to remain completely unconscious during the surgery.
During the procedure, an incision is made across the forehead and the skin is lifted before removing excess tissue. At the same time, the wrinkles are removed and the brows are repositioned before finally closing the incision with sutures.
Recovery time is different for each patient, but generally one resumes daily activities after several weeks. After healing, this procedure gives beautiful and noticeable results.
This surgical technique is preferred most of the times as it is less invasive than the previous technique but gives an equally great result. During an endoscopic brow lift, a series of small incisions are made behind the hairline.
Next, tiny camera and other thin instruments are inserted through the incisions to see the area of treatment, reposition the muscles, lift tissues of the forehead, and remove the excess skin. The incisions are then closed to give a natural, refreshed and youthful brow and better appearance after an endoscopic brow lift.
This involves longer incisions than an endoscopic brow lift. Incisions almost one inch long are made above each temple under the scalp. The surgeon then lifts and repositions the outer brow area to smooth out frown lines.
Recovery after brow lift surgery varies from patient to patient and depends on individual case. Typically, it takes at least two weeks for the patient to recover from the wound. The surgeon may decide to open the sutures after two weeks of the eyebrow lift and that is when the patient is able to return back to their normal routine and conduct daily activities.
There are certain precautions that patients are required to take for a speedy recovery after forehead lift surgery. These include:
Both surgical brow lift and non-surgical brow lift have several advantages. For example, this cosmetic procedure for eyebrow lift makes eyes appear brighter and naturally alert. In addition to providing a naturally refreshed, energetic, and carefree look, forehead lift boosts up the self-confidence of the person undergoing the procedure.
Brow lift surgery also helps eradicate tension lines on the forehead and raise the eyelids. It is a highly-effective procedure with minimal side effects, fewer complications, and faster recovery.
Positive effects of brow lift surgery can be achieved under the guidance of an experienced and highly-trained cosmetic surgeon with detailed knowledge of facial anatomy, aesthetic sense, and an ability to use the surgical technique to create results that suit patient’s unique facial features, gender, and age.
An individual may, however, face a few side effects as well. However, the rate of occurrence of these side effects is quite low. These may include scarring, hair loss from the site of incision, numbness, tiredness, tingling sensation, swelling, itching, pain, and other types of discomfort.
