A brow lift is predominantly used to rejuvenate the forehead and eyebrows, but can also be performed for patients with a receding hairline or naturally high forehead.
What does a brow lift involve?
Usually performed using small incisions, an endoscopic brow lift produces a similar effect with fewer complications.
There are many different reasons why patients may choose to undergo brow lift surgery. If the lateral part of your eyebrows is too low, your whole face may have a tired, or even sad look and can also create the impression that there is superfluous skin on your upper eyelids. Occasionally, depending on genetics, even young people may experience this problem.
Brow lift surgery will normally give you back a more youthful and pleasing brow shape and position. When the brow position is low, some people tend to raise their eyebrows, which leads to forehead lines. In many cases (particularly with younger patients) repositioning the eyebrow may refresh the appearance of your eyes without the need for eyelid surgery.
Brow lift surgery also has the ability to address the frown muscles, and reduce the tendency that some people have to frown whilst they are focusing.
