What is BROW LIFTING SURGERY?
The forehead and eyebrow region often show noticeable signs of aging. Looseness in these structures may cause drooping eyebrows, eyelid hooding, forehead furrows, and frown lines. In brow lift surgery, the structures responsible for these problems are tightened or altered to smooth the forehead, raise the upper eyebrows, and improve frown lines. A brow lift may be performed alone, or in conjunction with other procedures, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery. Advances in brow lift surgery make it possible to perform the procedure through a variety of approaches. Brow lift surgery is individualized for each patient. The surgical incisions used may vary with the technique selected by your surgeon to meet your needs. The brow lift cannot stop the process of aging. This surgery will not prevent further aging and you have to discuss the procedure with your surgeon with expectations which are realistic. Surgery may be done using a local anesthetic, sedation, or general anesthesia depending on the extent of the procedure.
