Brow Lift

A brow lift also referred to as forehead lift, is a surgical procedure to reduce the wrinkles and fine lines that develop across the forehead, on the nose bridge and between the eyes. The procedure aids in raising sagging brows and place the eyebrows in a youthful position. The procedure is combined with facelift and skin resurfacing processes to rejuvenate and bring overall make over to the face.

During the aging process, the aging sign is most visible and show off first on the forehead. Other reasons that cause furrows, sagging and wrinkles in the forehead include stress, sun exposure and gravity. The wrinkles in this forehead are referred to as frown lines. A brow lift helps refresh the face and provide a more youthful look by repositioning expression lines so that they are less visible above the eyebrows.

Brow Lift procedure

The aesthetic surgeon initiates the procedure by administering a dose of anesthetic. This helps to reduce the discomfort and pain during the procedure. Brow lifts procedures are performed in different techniques. These techniques include the endoscopic and coronal incision methods.

Endoscopic incision method

Endoscopic method uses a special tool known as an endoscope. The endoscope is a thin long tube-like structure that has a camera attached to its end. This facilitates the aesthetic surgeon to conduct the procedure with minimal incision and to view the activities performed during the surgery in a monitor attached to the camera. This method allows adjusting the muscles under the forehead skin and rectifying the visibility of furrows in the forehead. The incision scars are concealed by the hairline.

Endoscopic method is minimal invasive surgical procedure and requires around 5 small incisions to tighten and lift the muscles and skin tissues in the forehead. This method produces less scarring and has a faster recovery period.

Coronal incision method

The coronal incisions are a single incision that is made in the hairline from ear to ear. The forehead is then lifted long with muscle adjustment. The incision scar is concealed within the hair.

After the procedure, the incisions are closed using absorbable sutures or skin adhesives. The results are immediately visible after the procedure. Patients may experience pain and swelling in the area which fades within few days.

The procedure is completed within a time span of one to two hours and is performed on outpatient basis. Patients can involve in normal activities taking care not to engage in stressful activities. Swelling may last for about a week or more and subside in the long run.
