The forehead and eyebrows can show many emotions, from surprise to concern. The muscles and skin move constantly when you frown, squint or make certain facial expressions. With age, the brow and forehead can change. Furrows and lines may appear, and the eyebrows can lose their youthful arch. One of the most refreshing eyes & brows procedures for the face is a forehead/brow lift. At pēkomd, we offer an endoscopic brow lift at our cosmetic surgery and rejuvenation center in Toledo, OH.
Worry and frown lines are a common aging problem on the brow. While cosmetic injectables like Botox® can minimize lines on the brow, they do not remove or tighten the skin on the forehead. When the skin and tissue of the brow begin to sag due to lost elasticity in the skin, injectables may no longer be enough to maintain a youthful upper face. A brow lift can remove excess skin, then tighten and elevate the skin and tissue on the forehead. This can smooth furrows on the brow while raising the eyebrows back to their youthful position.
Endoscopic Brow Lift Surgery
The traditional or coronal brow lift requires incisions made on the forehead to remove excess skin and tighten/elevate the brow. This can be the best choice for those with extensive drooping and aging on the forehead. An endoscopic brow lift offers a less invasive and more discreet option for rejuvenating the forehead. Small incisions are made above the hairline on the scalp to access the skin and tissue on the forehead with small endoscopic surgical tools. The endoscopic brow lift can be an excellent choice for those who have mild to moderate forehead aging, requiring less recovery time with the small, hidden incisions.
If your eyebrows have descended closer to your eyes or you have deep forehead lines, a forehead/brow lift procedure can rejuvenate your upper face. Many patients combine a brow lift with blepharoplasty or a facelift for a more youthful appearance from the neck to the hairline.
