Dr. Thomas Hubbard.
Men and women who would like to reposition a low or sagging brow could benefit from a brow lift. A brow lift can also help transverse forehead creases or frown lines.
A variation of the procedure can also shorten a tall forehead by bringing the hairline down. There are options for shorter incisions with striking rejuvenation potential using special endoscopic instruments. Some recent studies suggest that a brow lift procedure can improve or cure some migraine headaches.
A brow lift is done on an outpatient basis under IV sedation or general anesthesia. Incisions are behind the hairline or following the hairline in some cases, with many variations depending on the individual. Skin is repositioned and overactive muscles are weakened to reduce "dynamic wrinkling."
The head is wrapped for only the first day. Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication and sutures are typically removed in a week. Most bruising and swelling around the eyes is resolved in 1 to 2 weeks. Once the sutures are removed, we encourage our patients to visit our skin care clinic for a complimentary makeup session designed to camouflage any remaining discoloration.
Many people who are considering a brow lift are also interested in eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). Often, these procedures are performed together for more significant improvements. Other procedures that can further enhance the results are a facelift, laser resurfacing, or facial implants.
Modern brow lift techniques have continued to advance and the results are much better today with the evolution of refined techniques and a greater number of procedure choices. Endoscopic or short scar surgeries, for example, do not require any scalp excision and we are now better able to shape the brow by weakening the frown muscle through the upper lid.
An attractive brow especially in the female has the outside or lateral brow higher than the inside or medial brow. By weakening the frown muscles through the upper lid, this greatly reduces or eliminates upward migration of the inside area of the brow for a much more aesthetic result.
