Eyebrow lift, or forehead lift, is a procedure to raise the brows. With age, the muscles and skin around the eyes get loose, and this leads to a sad and tired appearance. The eyebrow lift enhances the appearance of the forehead, the brow, and the area around the eyes by raising the soft tissue and skin of the forehead and brow. You might choose to have a brow lift if you have a low, sagging brow or brow asymmetry, frown lines between your eyes or your brows cause a sad appearance. The eyebrow lift can be done with other facial procedures, such as eyelid surgery or a face-lift. With a brow lift procedure, you can regain a fresher and more pleasing appearance.
Eyebrow Lift procedure
Before the operation, you will be given specific instructions by your surgeon, who will ask you to stop smoking, undergo a medical examination, stop taking aspirin, and adjust your current medications.
Initially, you will be given intravenous or general anesthesia. Your surgeon will discuss the option with you. The surgeon will make a small incision to remove fat deposits, tighten the muscles and remove excess skin.
The lower eyelid can be corrected through an incision below the eyelashes line, where excess fat can be placed or removed. The wounds are closed with threads or skin glue, and after a week, the stitches are removed.
Techniques for eyebrow lift
There are many techniques for eyebrow lift, and the surgeon will choose the appropriate technique for you.
Endoscopic brow lift technique
your surgeon makes several small incisions behind your hairline, and then the doctor inserts a long thin tube with a light and a tiny camera mounted on its end through one incision. Through another incision, the forehead tissue will be lifted and fixed with surgical sutures, and then the incisions will be closed with stitches or small clips. The incisions are then closed with stitches or small clips.
Coronal brow lift
A coronal brow lift is another technique where the surgeon makes an incision behind the hairline across the top of the head, from ear to ear, then the forehead is lifted and the overlapping scalp is removed and stitched together. This technique is not recommended in the case of patients who have high hairlines, thin hair, or who are likely to lose their hair.
Hairline brow lift
in the hairline brow lift technique, an incision will be made between the top of the forehead and the beginning of the hairline, then a small amount of skin and tissue will be removed from the top of the forehead, rather than the scalp. Here the hairline won’t be pulled back.
During the recovery period from eyelid surgery, you may use moisturizing ointment and cold compresses. You will also be given specific instructions on how to take care of your eyes, and what medications to put or take by mouth.
In a week, some swelling, bruising and dry eyes may occur. This is normal and will gradually disappear.
