Eyebrow lifts can work wonders on the face, especially for those who are into anti-aging treatments for the face. We all would like to maintain a smooth and young-looking appearance for as long as possible, but because we cannot escape the process of aging, we have to find ways to delay it. Not all anti-aging skincare is capable of entirely getting rid of wrinkles and lines since they mostly work only on top of the skin. With anti-aging plastic surgery procedures like the eyebrow lift, you can effectively and quickly restore your youthfulness.
What is an Eyebrow Lift?
An eyebrow lift, also known as a forehead lift or forehead rejuvenation, is a kind of cosmetic procedure that enhances the appearance of the brow, forehead, and eye area. This procedure is used to remove excess skin and reposition muscles and tissue in the forehead, especially for those who have issues with a sagging brow, asymmetrical brows, and facial furrows.
What is/are the Benefits of an Eyebrow Lift?
This procedure is one of the most popular rejuvenating procedures that can be paired with other anti-aging treatments. An eyebrow lift can bring about benefits for those wanting to restore youthfulness in their appearance. Some of the benefits include:
- Reduction of lines and creases in the upper nose bridge
- Smoothens of frown lines in the eye area
- Tightening and lifting of the brow, thus eliminating the “hooding” of the eyebrow and upper eyelids
- Improvement of the sagging of the eyelids
- Improvement of the appearance from looking old and fatigued to a more youthful and rested looking appearance
How is an Eyebrow Lift Done?
- The standard method of anesthesia used for an eyebrow lift is either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. Your surgeon will decide on which anesthesia is best for you during the procedure.
- There are three techniques used for an eyebrow lift, depending on the patient’s goal, anatomy, and the degree of correction that needs to be achieved.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
This technique is the least invasive of the three methods. They first create a ¾ inch incision behind the hairline. They then insert a special camera called the endoscope and tiny instruments to reposition, lift, and remove the muscles, tissue, and skin in the forehead.
Temporal or Limited Incision Brow Lift
This technique is commonly paired with eyelid surgery. A one-inch incision is made behind the hairline above each temple. This is to lift and reposition the outer areas of the eyebrow. This will also smoothen the frown lines of the forehead.
Coronal or Classic Brow Lift
This technique is considered as the traditional technique for an eyebrow lift and is seldom used because of the availability of less invasive procedures that also produce the same results. However, there are instances wherein this technique is needed. The doctor creates an incision behind the hairline that runs from ear to ear. They then remove the excess tissue, skin, and fat and reposition it for a younger appearance.
Closing of the incision
The incisions made for an eyebrow lift can be closed in three ways, either using a removable or absorbable suture, skin adhesives, or special clips.
Eyebrow Lift Recovery
After having the eyebrow lift procedure, it is common for you to experience a little pain and swelling as well as tightness in the forehead area. The effects of the procedure may last for about ten days and will heal after two weeks. Recovery can vary from one person to another, depending on how his or her body responds during the healing period. One week after undergoing the eyebrow lift procedure, you are allowed to return to work as long as it does not involve vigorous tasks.
If you are concerned about the appearance of bruising and swelling, you can cover the area with makeup that has been approved by your doctor. After two to four weeks, you can gradually resume your daily activities and exercise included, as long as you have approval from your doctor.
