A brow lift is designed to give your face a more youthful appearance, ridding it of unwanted forehead wrinkles and improving the shape of the eyes and eyelids. It can even help improve your visual fields.
There are several ways in which this surgery can be done, depending on the nature of the problem. The classic approach to this surgery is called a "coronal lift". This involves an incision on top of the head, hidden inside the hairline, and is very effective. The coronal lift can also be done in a way that "shortens" the forehead, bringing the hairline down to a lower position. This can make a very youthful change if you have a "high forehead."
Another way that brow lifting surgery is done is the "endoscopic" approach. This involves placing a series of small incisions in the scalp, then performing the surgery with an endoscope. This method leaves smaller scars and can be very effective.
Brow lift surgery can also be done through an upper eyelid incision.
Our board certified plastic surgeons are experts in all of these methods and will improve your upper facial appearance using the technique that is best for you.
Results are typically noticed for 5 to 10 years and even beyond. Brow lift is often combined with lower facial cosmetic surgery to make the entire face look more youthful.
