Facial aging occurs as the years go by, and the gradual descent of the eyebrows is one of those changes. Forehead furrows and lines that form as a consequence of normal expressions also conspire to make you look older. But the good news is that nowadays there are different types of eyebrow lifts that can restore the brows to a natural position.
What is an eyebrow lift?
An eyebrow lift is a surgical procedure that is performed to raise the level of the eyebrows to the proper position. It reshapes the eyebrow region, tightens the skin, and removes wrinkles.Types of eyebrow lifts include:
- Endoscopic Brow Lift: This is a minimally invasive procedure in which the surgeon makes small incisions in the scalp through which an endoscope is inserted. The endoscope is a small tube with a camera attached, and allows the surgeon to clearly see inside the deep tissues of the skin. There is minimal downtime and less swelling and bruising with this technique.
- Direct Brow Lift: An incision is made just above the eyebrows, and skin and muscle is removed. This procedure is usually reserved for older male patients.
- Pretrichal Brow Lift: The incision for this procedure is made slightly in front of the hairline. This technique is suitable for people with a hairline that starts further back.
- Temporal Brow Lift: This procedure is usually reserved for women, as the ends of the brows are raised. This gives the brows an arched appearance that looks more feminine.
