As we get older, our facial appearance changes, particularly around the eyes. One of the most obvious signs of aging occurs around the eyebrows as the muscles weaken or the skin becomes stretched. If your brow has become heavy and/or wrinkles have formed between and around your eyebrows, it is possible to reverse this aging effect with an eyebrow lift.
Prior to undergoing any type of cosmetic procedure, it crucial to find a skilled eyebrow lift surgeon in order to get the best results possible. Dr. Mehryar (Ray) Taban is a board-certified oculoplastic surgeon with years of experience performing brow lifts, earning him the recognition as one of the top eyebrow plastic surgeons in Los Angeles.
Effective Eyebrow Lift Procedures
An eyebrow lift is often performed on patients between the ages of 35 and 70-years-old in order to provide a more refreshed and youthful appearance. A heavy brow or furrowed lines around the eyebrows can significantly age a person or make them look more tired, sad, or angry than they really feel on the inside. Depending on the patient, one of the following eyebrow lift techniques may be recommended.
Direct Brow Lift
For patients who have developed sagging, heavy brows as a result of stretched or weakened muscles, the direct brow lift may be ideal. This surgery involves only making minor incisions directly above the eyebrows and removing a thin sliver of skin in order to pull the brows higher. The incisions are concealed along the brows to prevent noticeable scarring and the eyebrow is stabilized in its new position with specialized sutures.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
The newest and most minimally-invasive option for lifting droopy eyebrows, the endoscopic brow lift involves making only minimal incisions at five different points in the scalp. This procedure offers the most dramatic results with less risk of visible scarring, as well as an overall shorter recovery period. An endoscopic camera is inserted through one of the incisions to allow the surgeon to visualize the site as small instruments are also inserted to loosen the eyebrow and forehead, lifting it to a more aesthetically pleasing position.
Pretrichial Brow/Forehead Lift
A heavy brow or forehead wrinkles can also be corrected with a procedure called a pretrichial brow lift. An incision is made along the hairline and a sliver of skin tissue is removed in order to pull the forehead and brows up. This procedure is particularly suited to individuals who aren’t looking to correct deep forehead wrinkles, but want to lift their brows.
It is important to find an eyebrow plastic surgeon who can accurately determine which brow lift technique is best for each patient’s goals and circumstances.
