Forehead Lift


A brow lift, also known as a brow lift or brow lift, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that raises a drooping eyebrow that can affect vision and/or eliminate deep "worry lines" that run across the forehead and are visible to others could be . Anger, harshness, hostility, tiredness, or other involuntary feelings.

patients often need forehead rejuvenation surgery because the area is large enough to cover the main focus and upper facial expression in addition to the eyes. Over time and gravity, the muscles that keep the forehead smooth loosen and weaken, creating deep wrinkles. Correcting forehead wrinkles generally results in a more youthful appearance. Patients who come for the procedure are usually between 40 and 60 years old.

Eyebrow lifts are often used in conjunction with eyelid surgery to reduce sagging skin on the upper eyelids.
Eyebrow lift is performed by making an ear to ear incision across the forehead and lifting the entire forehead and eyebrows.
The final technique, called an endoscopic brow lift, uses a surgical telescope to lift the eyebrows and smooth forehead lines through small incisions behind the hairline.

In some cases, especially when the skin of the eyebrows and forehead is not too heavy, the upper eyelids also rise. In most cases, treatment results in a smoother appearance that many patients dream of looking younger, more rested and refreshed.

Current Surgical Techniques
Since the advent of the hugely popular anti-wrinkle Botox, many consumers have given up invasive surgical procedures altogether, opting for Botox injections every four to six months to achieve the same results. Botox is also used after some eyebrow lift procedures to enhance the effects of the treatments.

Endoscopic surgery is often used for eyebrow lift. The endoscope is a surgical system with slender, pencil-sized arms that are inserted through three to five incisions about 3/8 inch long. One arm of the instrument is a lighted camera that shows what it sees under the patient's skin on a television screen.Other endoscope arms contain surgical tools that perform cutting or grasping functions. The surgeon watches the television monitor to control his movements.

Complications are believed to be rare and minor when an eyebrow lift is performed by a surgeon skilled in the technique. However, it can happen that the nerves that control the movements of the eyebrows and forehead are damaged as a result of the operation. Hair loss can also occur at the edge of scalp scars when an incision is made at the hairline. In addition, infections and bleeding are possible with any operation.
