Do I Need an Eyebrow Lift?

More and more people are looking in the mirror and asking themselves if eyebrow lifts may be right for them. As we age, the position and contour of the eyebrows can change. Loss of elasticity, gravity, genetics, deflation and activity of the muscle surrounding the brow are all factors influencing the way the brow and eye area change over time. Many people seek to maintain their natural, youthful facial expressions for as many years as they can, and brow lift surgery makes that possible.

What Kind of Brow Lift Procedures Does Dr. Taban Perform?

Surgical eyelid procedures are often used in conjunction with other brow lifting cosmetic surgeries performed by Dr. Taban. Depending on your unique structure and desired results, Dr. Taban can develop a treatment plan just for you. Ptosis- This eyelid operation is performed to correct a droopy eyelid. Ptosis surgery works by tightening the levator muscle or tendon in the upper eyelid to lift the droop. This kind of surgery can be performed in tandem with other eyebrow lifting procedures to create a complete, aesthetically pleasing result.

Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty- These procedures involve the removal of excess loose skin and fat from the upper or lower eyelid, to give a more youthful appearance to the face and improve the eye platform.

Endoscopic Eyebrow Lift- This state-of-the-art procedure is performed by creating small incisions behind the hairline to eliminate visible scars, and requires less time for recovery. This procedure can raise the hairline and lift and contour the entire upper face while making forehead lines soften.

Pretrichial Temporal Eyebrow Lift – This surgery involves creating incisions at the temple hairline, to lift the lateral corners of the brows. The advantages of this technique include not raising (or even lowering) of the hairline and the fact that it can be performed under local anesthesia (in the office).

Direct Brow Lift – This procedure involves removing a section of skin right above the brow for patients who want to raise their brows without altering their hairlines. It is usually reserved for severe brow droopiness such as paralytic brow ptosis in patients with facial paralysis.
