What is a brow lift procedure?
This is a procedure done to lift the brow. Many surgeons and patients don't recognize this problem and they feel that the brow is not sagging.
What causes the brow to sag?
As we age as with everything in the face everything falls. This is a combination of skin sagging, gravitational pull and muscle-loosening. What happens in the brow area is that when the brow falls patients cannot see well because the extra skin is crowding their upper eyelid.
In order to compensate this, patients naturally sort of raising their eyebrows and keep it in that position. They don’t even know that they are doing this, but they so that they can see better.
What does the brow lift do?
The brow lift is done to rejuvenate that area and put the brow back in a position it was when the patient was younger. It can be done in different procedures. I like to do what is called a coronal brow lift which is done within the scalp, so the scars are all hidden in the scalp.
Are there other procedures for this?
- Endoscopic brow lift - the problem with this is that it won’t last that long and it gives the patients an artificial look - Another is the brow lift can be done with an incision right around the eyebrow itself, this lifts very little and you see the visible scar.
How is the coronal brow lift procedure done?
I have been doing this for over 25 years, it is done through an incision in the scalp, and the surgery is done by going all the way down to the brow area, I remove the frown muscle, and I also loosen the tissues around to lift it and excess scalp a small amount is removed and tightened inside the hair.
Patients usually recover within a week . It’s a very quick recovery some swell up a little more than others there is some bruising involved, however, patients can get back to work within a week. And they can look really good in two weeks
