Have you tried the Brow Lift?
« on: April 09, 2012, 09:50:59 PM »
The eyebrow is an area of thick, delicate hairs above the eye that follows the shape of the lower margin of the brow ridges of some mammals. Their main function is to prevent sweat, water, and other debris from falling down into the eye socket,] but they are also important to human communication and facial expression. It is not uncommon for people – women in particular – to modify their eyebrows by means of hair addition, removal, makeup, or piercings.

By re-positioning the brow in the proper location, a Brow Lift may reduce or eliminate the need for removal of upper eyelid skin (Blepharoplasty). Conversely, removal of eyelid skin alone may not be sufficient to correct the tired appearance of the eyes. Proper re-positioning of the brow through the Brow Lift procedure exposes the sulcus (hollow) of the upper eyelid, producing a more attractive, youthful appearance.

If you have one or more of the following conditions, you may be a good candidate for a Brow Lift:

• A sagging or low position of the eyebrows, creating a sad or tired appearance
• Deep horizontal creases across the forehead
• Deep frown lines between the eyebrows and/or across the top of the nose
• An appearance of excess skin in the upper eyelid area (hooding), which may obstruct the peripheral vision
The procedure involves making an incision in the scalp, hidden behind the hairline. For patients with a high or receding forehead hair line, the incision is often located precisely at the frontal hair line, so that the hair line will not be further elevated.

This procedure takes about 1 hour and can be done in an outpatient setting under local or general anesthesia. The stitches or staples are removed in about 7-10 days. You can resume normal activities in about 1-2 weeks.
I haven’t tried that yet, and I’m, still thinking if I will undergo on that kind of surgery.

Have you tried the Brow Lift? How does it feel? does it really help improving your life? of what aspect?

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a retired Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Welcome to our forum.

A Brow Lift is not just for raising the brow, but mainly for tightening loose or sagging tissues of the forehead. These tissues can loosen as part of the process of the Aging Face.

Brow Lift For Eyebrow Ptosis or Sagging as in this case of one sided drooping from nerve injury.

If you yourself are considering this surgery, why not post some standard pictures to show the problem? Upper Face issues are shown with Brow Lift Pictures and special views of the eyelids to see how much the loose skin continues there. Standard Pictures for Eyelid Surgery. Full face views are better suited to see the entire problem.

Recovery after surgery also depends on the problem, surgical technique, skill of the surgeon, after surgery care, and many other factors. For my patients the Swiss Therapy Gel Mask was a major advancement to minimize swelling and bruising of the eyelids seen with this surgery. That is how I was able to put early after surgery pictures up that most surgeons avoid. This is part of the process of understanding just what a doctor offers with this sculpture.

Hope this helps,
