Sagging eyebrows are a sign of the loss of elasticity that occurs as the skin ages. This often causes the skin to droop, and leads to the formation of frown lines and wrinkles. The lines not only make you appear older, but they also make you look tired and angry. An upper brow lift is the ideal procedure to subtly raise the eyebrows, to restore an alert, refreshed appearance that looks more youthful.
Brow Lift Surgery
Brow lift Surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis, under local or general anesthesia. Depending on the extent of facial aging, the surgeon may also recommend that upper and lower eyelid surgery be done in conjunction with the brow lift.
There are different techniques that can be used to rejuvenate the brow, and the choice depends on the features that need to be renewed. In a traditional brow lift, the incisions are generally made along the hairline behind the temple. However patients now have the choice of an endoscopic brow lift. For this procedure, the surgeon uses an endoscope to lift the brow and treat the muscles.
Brow Lift Surgery Recovery
An endoscopic brow lift usually requires less recovery time, when compared to the traditional brow lift. Patients will notice some bruising and swelling around the eyes, but this generally clears within 5-6 days.
