WHAT IS A BROWLIFT?
Deep furrows on the forehead, frown lines over the eyes, drooping eyebrows, and hood-like skin over the eyes are all conditions that can make you look older than you are – or feel. Whether age or heredity causes these conditions, a forehead lift (or browlift) can give you a more youthful, animated, and alert appearance. A browlift moves eyebrows back where they belong: at or above the brow bone. It may also smooth the furrows in the lower forehead and reduce the drooping skin above the eyes. After the surgery, the eyes appear more open, rested, and youthful.
Drooping Eyebrows, what can be done?
“In order to achieve a natural result, it is critical to avoid appreciable altering of the hair pattern.”
Drooping eyebrows are often one of the first signs of aging. This condition is frequently overlooked because most people are unaware of the problem and the amount of improvement correction can provide. Drooping brows cause the upper lids to droop and move downward. In extreme cases, the eyelid skin can touch or overlap the eyelashes. People often comment that their eyes appear to be getting smaller or more deeply set. A drooping brow contributes to the tired look observed at the end of the day. For women, this condition frequently causes eye makeup to end up on the upper part of their eyelids soon after it is applied.
Forehead lift (or browlift) surgery may lessen the deeper “crow’s feet” next to the outer corners of the eye. In order to achieve the best result, a forehead lift (or browlift) can be combined with other procedures such as eyelid surgery, a facelift, and neuromodulators (Botox or Dysport). During your consultation, your eyes, brows, forehead, and hairline will be analyzed to determine the appropriate procedure for you.
Great care is taken to place incisions within the hair, hairline, or naturally-occurring fold of skin to make the resulting scars as inconspicuous as possible. Placement depends upon the height of the patient’s hairline. In order to achieve a natural result, it is critical to avoid appreciable altering of the hair pattern.
