Brow Lift Surgery / Forehead Lift
Brow Lift Surgery is the procedure to raise the eyebrows back to their normal position, reducing the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead and wrinkles between the eyebrows.
As we age, our facial features change over time. One of the most noticeable changes is the hood created over the upper part of the eyes, caused by the drooping of the forehead and eyebrows. The eyebrows appear much lower than its usual position, which makes the upper eyelid skin excessive and sagging.
Brow/Forehead Lifts can help reverse the effects of the loose eyelid skin and tighten the soft tissues of the forehead, returning the appearance of the forehead, eyelids and eyebrows to its natural robustness.
A Brow Lift Surgery can be considered in the following situations –
- Sagging or low eyebrow position resulting in a grumpy or tired appearance
- Deep Crease across the forehead
- Frown lines between eyebrows or across the top of the nose
- Excess skin or tissues hanging over eyes
There are various Brow Lift options one can consider. In less adverse situations, careful administration of brow lift injections can be helpful in selectively weakening opposing muscle pulls and temporarily improving the issue at hand. In more complex cases, a brow lift surgery is preferred, designed to correct the drooping skin and soft tissues and restore them to their original positions.
The earlier forms of brow lift surgery consisted of an incision being be made across the forehead to remove excess, after which the freed skin and soft tissues would be stitched upwards, resulting in a tightened skin region.
Today, with the discovery of the Endoscopic Forehead/Brow Lift method, the surgery has become much more efficient and minimally invasive. This technique involved 3 stab incisions within the hairline through which the skin and soft tissues are freed and advanced upwards, with assistance from a sophisticated camera system. The skin and tissues are then anchored in the new position using a dissolvable apparatus, the Endotine Anchoring System, developed by the Plastic Surgeons at Stamford University, USA. This surgical procedure hence is widely accepted by many.
