Brow lift

What is a brow lift?

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, in which the loose forehead skin is tightened.

What are the benefits of brow lift?

  1. .Reduces the wrinkle lines that develop horizontally across the forehead, as well as those that occur on the bridge of the nose, between the eyes
  2. Improves frown lines, the vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows
  3. Raises sagging brows that are hooding the upper eyelids
  4.  Places the eyebrows in an alert and youthful position

What is done in this procedure?

Brow lifts can be performed in two ways. One is endoscopic method another one is open method.

INENDOSCOPE METHOD, the endoscope (a thin tube with a camera on the end) and special instruments placed through small incisions made within the hairline. This allows the tissue and muscle beneath the skin to be adjusted, correcting the source of visible creases and furrows in the forehead.

IN OPEN METHOD, coronal incision is created from ear to ear across the top of the head within the hair-bearing skin. The forehead skin is then lifted and any muscle adjustment can be made under direct visualization. The resulting scar from a coronal brow lift is well concealed within the hair.

What are the postoperative instructions given to the patient?

Results will appear within a few weeks after which the swelling and bruising subside to reveal smoother forehead skin and a more youthful, rested appearance
