A brow lift raises drooping brows, which can cause a tired, angry, or sad expression to be a permanent fixture of the face, and also relaxes the brow and smooths forehead wrinkles. Excess skin is trimmed away, while the remaining skin and tissue is tightened. The procedure may be performed through either traditional techniques or an endoscopic approach that requires smaller incisions.
• Traditional brow lift: Small incisions are made in inconspicuous locations either behind the hairline or directly in front of the hairline. Any excess skin is removed, and the eyebrows are raised to an attractive, natural-looking position. If your forehead is being shortened, an additional incision can be made in the anterior hairline to pull skin downward. Incisions are then closed using removable or absorbable sutures, skin adhesives, or surgical clips.
• Endoscopic brow lift: Tiny, short incisions are made within the hairline, and an endoscope (a thin tube with a camera on the end) or a lighted scope is inserted. Tissue and muscles under the skin are adjusted to reduce furrows, and brows are lifted and repositioned on the forehead. Making incisions in the hairline results in virtually undetectable scars. Incisions are then closed using removable or absorbable sutures and skin adhesives.
To determine if you are a candidate for either a traditional or endoscopic brow lift, schedule a comprehensive cosmetic consultation with Dr. Melyssa Hancock or Dr. Nathan E. Nachlas. During your consultation, they will learn about your desired rejuvenation results, analyze your facial features, and determine what non-surgical and surgical treatment options will help you achieve your facial rejuvenation treatment goals. Dr. Hancock and Dr. Nachlas will develop a personalized treatment plan designed to help you achieve a balanced, natural-looking facial appearance.
