A brow lift, or “forehead lift,” is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. The procedure corrects drooping brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired.
How does a brow lift work?
During a brow lift, the muscles and tissues that cause a furrowing and drooping appearance are removed or altered to smooth the brow, raise the eyebrows, and minimize frown lines. Your surgeon may either use the conventional surgical method in which the incision is hidden just behind the hairline, or use an endoscope, which is a viewing instrument that allows the procedure to be performed using minimal incisions. Both techniques yield similar results, including a smoother brow and a more animated appearance.
