Also known as forehead lift or browplasty
A brow lift or forehead lift reverses the effects of gravity and tightens the soft tissues of the forehead to restore a more youthful contour to your forehead skin, upper eyelids and eyebrows. There are various brow-lift methods, which involve different length incisions in different locations and, sometimes, an endoscope. A youthful brow at rest is positioned above the orbital rim, with a gradual arch laterally, and the lateral end or ‘tail’ of the brow located higher than the medial end. As one ages, it is common for the brow to assume a flat or horizontal position.
If a sagging brow inhibits your facial expression, a brow lift is a time-tested method for rejuvenating the upper third of your face. Every year, thousands of people undergo successful brow-lift surgery and are pleased with the results.
When to Consider a Brow Lift
• Sagging or low eyebrow position creates a tired, sad or grumpy appearance
• You have deep horizontal creases across the forehead
• You have frown lines or furrows between the eyebrows or across the top of your nose
• You have excess skin or fatty tissue hanging over your eyes
