A brow lift, also referred to as a forehead lift, restores a more youthful, refreshed, and cheery look to the forehead, eye brows and upper eyelid areas. By removing excess skin and muscle, the procedure corrects drooping brows, improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make you look angry, sad or tired, and tightens the skin of the upper eyelid. An endoscopic approach is used through tiny incisions hidden in the hair.
A brow lift:
- minimizes the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose
- improves what are commonly referred to as frown lines
- repositions a low or sagging brow
A brow lift is often performed in conjunction with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or a facelift to provide a smoother, overall balanced look to the eyes and face.
