BROW LIFT / FOREHEAD LIFT
The effects of aging are inevitable, and, often, the brow and forehead area show the first signs. The skin begins to lose its elasticity. Sun, wind, and the pull of gravity all affect the face, resulting in frown lines, wrinkling across the forehead, and an increasing heaviness of the eyebrows. Even people in their thirties may have faces that look older than their years.
A brow lift or forehead lift reverses the effects of gravity and tightens the soft tissues of the forehead to restore a more youthful contour to your forehead skin, upper eyelids and eyebrows.
The two main types of brow lift are:
- Open (or ‘traditional’) brow lift – the surgeon makes a long incision (cut) across the forehead, either around the hairline or in one of the creases of the forehead. The skin is lifted away from the underlying tissues. Muscles are loosened and fat is removed. The surgeon removes any excess skin, pulls the remaining skin down and stitches the brow into its new position. Other names sometimes used to describe this operation include classic, coronal or trichophytic brow lift.
- Endoscopic brow lift – the surgeon makes several smaller incisions and inserts an endoscope (a metal tube with a camera attached to the end). The operation is similar to that used for an open brow lift, but the surgeon observes the tissues underneath the skin on a television screen rather than through an open wound.
The affect of a brow lift varies depending on the type of lift, the severity of correction, genetic factors and the use of adjunctive measures (such as Botox) to prolong the result.
