While injectables like Botox and Dysport can smooth out forehead lines and even lift up the brows slightly, any significant drooping of the brows and deep furrows can only be corrected with a brow lift. A brow lift involves removing and repositioning the tissue to create a smoother, more youthful appearance. This procedure can change the shape of your brows and give you a refreshed and rejuvenated look.
Dr. Foley is a board certified plastic surgeon and performs brow lift surgery at his practice. This procedure alone can create a well-rested and youthful look but may be combined with other procedures, such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), a facelift, eyelid tuck, and skin resurfacing procedures. Dr. Foley will make a recommendation based on your consultation.
Reasons to Undergo a Brow Lift
- Sagging or drooping brows that create a sad or angry expression
- Deep horizontal lines and grooves along the forehead
- Deep frown lines or furrows between the brows
- Excess skin hanging over the eyes
- Obscured upper eyelids because of sagging brows
How a Brow Lift is Performed
In most cases, this procedure is performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. An endoscopic brow lift is a minimally invasive procedure that involves using an endoscope to access the tissues and muscle beneath the skin through very small incisions made around the hairline. This helps to eliminate creases and furrows around the forehead, restoring a smooth appearance.
A traditional brow lift is performed by making a coronal incision where an incision is made around the top of the head from each ear. Dr. Foley can then lift the forehead skin around this area and adjust the muscles. The incision is easy to conceal under the hair. Results are fairly noticeable once the swelling and bruising have subsided.
