Brow Lift

A sagging brow will cause the appearance of tired eyes, and even obscure the eyes. A brow lift can help reduce forehead wrinkles, make the eyes more visible, and give a more refreshed look to the upper face.

In the most extreme of cases, this descent can actually obscure the eyes. The descent of the brow should be analyzed along with the status of the upper eyelid because an alteration of one can affect the other. For that reason, brow lifts are often performed in conjunction with blepharoplasty for a more dramatic result. The correction of brow position can be performed endoscopically or via an incision within the hairline.

During the correction of brow position, I can target several of the muscles of the forehead that result in the vertical furrowing lines between the eyebrows. A well-done brow lift should decrease forehead wrinkles and make the eyes more visible to give a more refreshed look to the upper face.
