At times, subtle sagging of the forehead can cause the eyebrows to descend, which worsens the problem of excessive upper eyelid skin. A forehead & browlift can be combined with upper eyelid surgery in order to reposition these tissues with the goal of improving the appearance around the eyes. The method used to perform the lift is individualized to the patient’s facial anatomy.
The Right Browlift for You
Choosing the right browlift to fit your needs isn’t too complicated but is an important decision. The two types of lifts are endoscopic and classic. The latter is done by making an incision that starts parallel with you ear. The blade will wrap around your hair line from ear to ear. Scarring can occur so your surgeon will work around your hair to minimize this. The endoscopic version involves a couple small cuts as opposed to a continuous incision. The surgeon will place small anchors under the skin where the incision was made. The anchors are used to pull and keep skin upward. The recovery time is much shorter in this case. There is less cutting and thus less scarring.
Getting Ready for your Browlift
Your surgeon will give you all the details in regards to preparation. Some of things they might tell you include temporarily changing dietary or consumption behavior. This could be not smoking, drinking alcohol, or eating certain foods. Your hair might also be cumbersome during the procedure due to length. Cutting hair might be a simple solution. Hair styles might need to be altered if scarring occurs.
