brow lift procedure

The upper portion of our face carries many of the most visible signs of aging. Horizontal creases develop across our foreheads. Vertical frown lines lodge between our eyebrows, just above the bridge of the nose. Our eyebrows may descend on a sagging brow that can interfere with our vision and even cause headaches. A brow lift addresses these problems simultaneously.

Depending on the work to be done, a brow lift can be performed using an endoscope, a tube with a tiny video camera on the end, which can be inserted underneath the forehead skin through small incisions made near the hairline. The endoscope enables us to see what we’re doing, and other instruments let us manipulate the muscles and inner tissues to remove furrows and wrinkles. Raising your eyebrows requires incisions at the temples as well as along the hairline. We handle frown lines by hiding incisions in the natural creases of your upper eyelid.

coronal brow lift provides extra flexibility in lifting your forehead and targeting specific areas of the brow region. It requires a longer recovery time because here we make a longer incision—one that runs from ear to ear over the top of your scalp. In this case it is your hair that keeps the scar hidden.*
