Brow Lift Surgery: Benefits and Techniques
The aging process is an unfortunate part of life we must all go through, yet, some experience it earlier or more rapidly than others. Often lines and/or wrinkles forming on your brow can make you seem older than you are, and to make matters worse, they often make you appear to be constantly tired, or upset. Patients often complain that they appear “mean” or “stern” or “unhappy”. This can negatively affect your relationships with those around you as they continually misunderstand your facial expressions, and subsequently your feelings towards them. If you find yourself in this miserable, frustrating predicament of having sagging eyebrows or deep lines across your forehead and brow then brow lift surgery may be the solution you have been looking for. A brow lift can work to:
- Reduce deep creases and furrows that develop horizontally across the forehead, between the eye brows, and on the bridge of the nose
- Raise up drooping brows
- Give your face a more alert and youthful appearance
- Reduce the “11’s” or vertical lines between your eyes
Though most often performed on patients between 40 and 60 years old, there is no age restriction for this procedure. It produces remarkable results for younger patients with undesirable genetically-inherited features or highly stressful lives that cause them to age prematurely. There are several different approaches to a brow lift surgery and during your pre-surgery consultation Dr. Berman will suggest the option he feels will help achieve the best results possible for you. The most common types of brow lift surgery include:
Coronal Incision Technique – This is the more traditional method where the surgeon makes an incision across the top of the scalp, two inches behind the hairline, or at the hairline so the incision marks are concealed by your hair after they heal. The surgeon then removes some of the muscles that are the cause of the lines and wrinkles, lifts the brows, and removes any excess skin.
Limited-Incision Endoscopic Technique – In this form of brow lift surgery the surgeon makes several small incisions and inserts a long, thin tube with a light and tiny video camera attached, called an endoscope, through them. This allows the surgeon to see and operate internally without having to open up the patient’s forehead as much.
Limited-Incision Non-Endoscopic Technique – In certain instances a surgeon can perform a relatively non-invasive surgery without the assistance of an endoscope by making tiny incisions by the temples to lift up sagging eyebrows and then other small incisions in the upper-eyelid area in order to get rid of wrinkles between the brows.
