Your expression changes over time, even though your temperament and outlook on life may not. This is because furrows can develop in your forehead, giving an impression of anxiety or apprehension even when you’re relaxed and confident. Your brow may droop; making you appear sad or tired even when you feel happy and vibrant. Many of these expressions become permanent through age, overactive muscles in the forehead and brow region, and simple heredity. A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, corrects a sagging brow by smoothing furrows that have developed across the forehead.* The result is an appearance that is more relaxed, confident, and youthful.* A brow lift may reduce furrows and other lines of aging, raise eyebrows to a more youthful and engaged position, subdue frown lines, and reduce creases on the forehead and bridge of the nose.*
Brow Lift Basics
A brow lift can improve the facial appearance between the upper eyelids to the scalp, extending laterally to the temples.* It reduces lines and creases in the forehead and minimizes a sagging brow.* The surgery entails multiple limited incisions hidden in the hairline—or through a single incision in the natural crease of your upper eyelids. Where there is excessive skin on the forehead, a technique using a long incision across the top of the scalp is often used. Forehead lift incisions are typically closed with removable sutures, skin adhesives or special clips. In some cases, permanent sutures, small surgical screws, or an absorbable fixation device will be placed at the temples in order to help maintain the new position of the brow.
