Brow lift, also known as forehead lift, is a procedure designed to minimize the appearance of aging in the forehead and brow regions. The upper face (forehead) is often the first area of the face to show signs of aging. The brow and forehead regions undergo a massive amount of movement each day. Between smiling, laughing, raising the eyebrows, crinkling the face, and all of the other facial expressions made during a normal day, it is a wonder that the face doesn’t show signs of aging earlier.
As with any cosmetic procedure, a candidate for brow lift must have realistic expectations, be in good health, and be willing to refrain from using any tobacco products before and after treatment.
Men and women who are bothered by these signs of facial aging may be ideal candidates for brow lift:
- Creases between the eyebrows
- Creases across the forehead
- Wrinkles and lines in the forehead
- Sagging, drooping in the eyebrows
- Drooping eyelids
- Sagging skin in the region of the upper nose
At his plastic surgery practice in Orange County, Dr. Cohen performs forehead lift to minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the brow. Plastic surgeon William C. Cohen specializes in endoscopic browlift. Endoscopic brow lift is less invasive than more traditional brow lift techniques. Patients are able to achieve similar results to those of traditional forehead lift with a much easier and faster recovery process.
During endoscopic brow lift, incisions are made within the hairline, in the upper region of the forehead. This incision placement allows scarring to be easily hidden within the hairline. After the incisions have been made, an endoscope is inserted beneath the surface of the skin. The underlying tissues are then accessed and adjustments are made when necessary. The muscles and tissues are reshaped, and then the wrinkles are smoothed. After elevating the eyebrow region, the skin is secured into place with stitches.
There are many benefits of endoscopic forehead lift. Patients bothered by the appearance of sagging, wrinkles, creases, and droopiness in the brow and forehead regions can achieve superior results through endoscopic forehead lift. Endoscopic forehead lift is an ideal treatment for patients that are just beginning to see signs of aging in the forehead. Patients that are concerned about scarring or simply want a shorter recovery time can also benefit from endoscopic brow lift.
Traditional brow lift surgery may be recommended if a patient is suffering from deep creases, lines, and wrinkles, or extensive sagging. For more comprehensive results, patients may choose to undergo brow lift in conjunction with face lift or neck lift.
The results achieved through brow lift can last for ten years or more. After recovering from surgery, a patient can expect to look naturally refreshed. Through brow lift, a patient can look more youthful, more refreshed, and happier. A patient will not have to worry about constantly and involuntarily appearing angry, tired, or unhappy.
