Eyebrow Lift (“brow lift”) – An eyebrow lift helps restore a more youthful, refreshed look to the eyes. The procedure corrects drooping eyebrows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired. In a forehead lift, muscles are reduced to smooth the forehead, raise the eyebrows and minimize frown lines. Your surgeon may use the conventional surgical method in which the incision is hidden just behind the hairline; or use an endoscope, a viewing instrument that allows the procedure to be performed with several small incisions. Both techniques yield similar results — smoother forehead skin, less heaviness of the brow area, and a more “bright eyed” appearance. A drain may be used after surgery. Many patients think they need a blepharoplasty (eye lift) when they actually need a brow lift or both. Make sure your surgeon can perform a brow lift endoscopically so that your options are not limited by their skills. Some patients are better candidates for the “open” non endoscopic technique because of their tissue/forehead characteristics. Interestingly enough, endoscopic reduction of the muscles that cause frowning between the eyes has help many patients who suffer from migrane headaches. We don’t know the reason why, but it does. This is very good news for migrane sufferers.
