Brow-forehead-lift Techniques

Eyebrow lift surgery is also known as forehead lift or browplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure that eliminated the frown or furry lines on the forehead and leave the person with younger and attractive look. There are non-invasive techniques available for this cosmetic surgery but browlift is the most common technique adopted for the treatment. Plastic surgeon after examining the patient decides upon the type of procedure that will be ideal for the person depending upon their facial bone structure, brows position, skin texture, elasticity and desired result. This cosmetic surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia and can be performed by three different techniques.

Coronal brow lift – In this type of brow lift, an incision is made above the hairline on the head from one ear to the other ear and scalp skin is removed.

Hairline Brow Lift – This brow lift technique is recommended for patients having high receding hairline, in which an incision is made between the forehead and beginning of the hairline. Forehead is shortened with this procedure and offer great results in patients having more horizontal creases.

Endoscopic Brow Lift – Endoscopic brow lift is performed using a tiny instrument called endoscope having a camera at its tip, which is connected to an external display. Few small incision is made by our surgeon behind the hair line on the scalp. The endoscope is inserted through one of the incisions to view the inside structures on the large television screen. Small surgical instruments are inserted by the surgeons through other incisions to shift the skin backward on the head. The extra muscle and skin are then removed and the elevated position of the brow is permanently fixed by the stitches. This procedure initially results in swelling and bruising but reduces in a few weeks, thereby revealing a relaxed and youthful face and smooth skin.
