Brow Lift / Forehead Lift

Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)

Eyelid surgery will not elevate a drooping brow or compensate for heaviness in the forehead. A procedure to elevate the brows may be appropriate, instead of, or in addition to upper lid blepharoplasty.

Correction of brow ptosis can be accomplished through incisions directly above the brows, in the forehead creases, or at the hairline.

To raise the brows and forehead, Dr. Levin usually performs an endoscopic brow lift. The endoscopic brow (forehead) lift is performed through small incisions hidden behind the hairline using an endoscope and special dissection instruments. The muscles that pull the brow down and crease the forehead skin are relaxed, allowing the brow to be raised into a more youthful position. The brow is held in position with the Endotine, a dissolvable fixation devise.

Another popular procedure is the temporal browlift. This simple procedure uses limited incisions in the hairline and lifts only the tail of the eyebrows. Only skin is removed. This gives a subtle lift to the outer brow and helps to minimize hoods that eyelids surgery alone cannot fully address.

Cold compresses are applied for 24 hrs. to reduce swelling and bruising. Antibiotic ointment is prescribed. Strenuous activity should be minimized for 10 days.
