A Brow Lift Can Elevate Your Appearance
Aging is inevitable, however, looking older is a choice. Our faces carry the signs of aging by displaying wrinkles, fine lines, sagging eyebrows or deep creases across our foreheads. If non-surgical options like soft fillers are no longer helping you achieve a smooth, youthful forehead, a brow lift is a great way to get the smooth skin you are seeking.
A browplasty, or brow lift, is a procedure that tightens soft tissue on the forehead to preserve the appearance of youth. It is most popular among adults from 35 to 50 years old with moderate wrinkling on their forehead. The procedure lifts the excess skin on the forehead to raise drooping eyelids, and smooth creases and furrowed brows. There are multiple ways to perform a brow lift.
Endoscopic Brow Lift is the most common technique used by Dr. Shapiro and is minimally invasive. Three small incisions are placed along the hairline, making scars unnoticeable and recovery quick. This particular brow lift focuses on the internal structure of the forehead by the surgeon to reshape the brow.
Coronal Brow Lift lifts the skin away from the underlying tissue through a long incision across the forehead or hairline. Dr. Shapiro then loosens the muscles and removes excess skin. He pulls the remaining skin and stitches the brow in the new position.
Lateral Temporal Brow Elevation is minimally invasive and lifts the corners of the eyes. The incisions are placed along the temporal hair line and elevated to tighten the areas that cause wrinkles along the eyes, for example, crow’s feet.
Recovery from the surgical procedure takes about three weeks. Sutures are normally taken out around seven to 10 days after surgery.The surgical procedure shows results immediately and the results are long lasting.
