If you’re considering a brow lift
A brow lift or forehead lift is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes and the eye area itself. The muscles that cause furrowing between the eyes are sometimes contoured to smooth that area. Extra forehead skin is either removed or shifted back to smooth the forehead and to raise the eyebrows.
Are you a candidate for a brow lift?
For a better understanding of how a brow lift might change your appearance, look into a mirror and manually raise the outer edges of your eyebrows. That is approximately what a brow lift would do for you. A brow lift is most commonly performed in the 40-60 age range to decrease the visible effects of aging. However, it can also help people of other ages who have developed furrows or frown lines due to stress or muscle activity.
There are many ways to perform a browlift. They can be performed endoscopically (using a minimal incisions and small cameras), open with removal of skin. These procedures have their pros and cons and will be better defined during consultation with Dr Hosn. Browlifts can be performed in conjunction with face lifts to provide a smoother overall look to the face. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) may also be performed at the same time as a brow lift, especially if a patient has significant skin overhang in the upper eyelids.
