By re-positioning the brow in the proper location, a Brow Lift may reduce or eliminate the need for removal of upper eyelid skin (Blepharoplasty). Conversely, removal of eyelid skin alone may not be sufficient to correct the tired appearance of the eyes. Proper re-positioning of the brow through the Brow Lift procedure exposes the sulcus (hollow) of the upper eyelid, producing a more attractive, youthful appearance.
If you have one or more of the following conditions, you may be a good candidate for a Brow Lift:
- A sagging or low position of the eyebrows, creating a sad or tired appearance
- Deep horizontal creases across the forehead
- Deep frown lines between the eyebrows and/or across the top of the nose
- An appearance of excess skin in the upper eyelid area (hooding), which may obstruct the peripheral vision
The procedure involves making an incision in the scalp, hidden behind the hairline. For patients with a high or receding forehead hair line, the incision is often located precisely at the frontal hair line, so that the hair line will not be further elevated.
This procedure takes about 1 hour and can be done in an outpatient setting under local or general anesthesia. The stitches or staples are removed in about 7-10 days. You can resume normal activities in about 1-2 weeks.
