Brow Lift or Forehead Lift
A brow lift, or forehead lift, is designed to enhance the position and contour of the eyebrows. Time, weight changes and genetics result in eyebrows that descend which gives a sagging, hooded look to the upper eye. This procedure will help you restore the brows’ regular arch and position, giving a more youthful and alert appearance. There are several types of brow lifts. During your consultation with Dr. Haque, he will examine you and identify the best procedure for you.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
In an endoscopic brow lift, the eyebrow is lifted and the muscles that form furrows are weakened, resulting in a smoother forehead and more alert appearance. The procedure is performed with small incisions in the hairline with the help of an endoscope. The procedure is generally performed under anesthesia as an outpatient procedure.
Temporal Brow Lift – Minimally Invasive
This procedure is used to lift the lateral portion of the eyebrow to reinstate the natural youthful arch of the brow that people lose with age. With a slight incision at the back of the hairline, the lateral brow is freed from its original attachments to the bone and is lifted. No mark will be visible on the forehead or face after this treatment.
While a temporal brow lift does not concentrate on the muscles creating brow furrows, this procedure which minimizes incisions coupled with BOTOX® can give an outcome similar to an endoscopic brow lift.
Conventional Brow Lift
This treatment is performed through an incision at the back of the hairline from ear to ear, similar to the position of headphones. If the hair is receding, the incision can be made directly at the hairline in order to avoid adding additional height to your forehead. Generally most scars cannot be seen as they heal.
The hair is tied using rubber bands prior to the procedure, but the hair will not be shaved. After the incision, the skin and muscles are lifted to get access to the eyebrow and muscles. Your eyebrow will be lifted to their regular, more appealing place and the muscles that make brow wrinkles are weakened. Any excess skin is removed.
Who Is A Candidate For A Brow Or Forehead Lift?
Individuals who have drooping brows, deepened furrows or wrinkles or those who have lost their regular eyebrow arch can benefit from this treatment.
Preparing for the brow lift
Dr. Haque will review pre-procedure instructions with you during the consultation. Instructions will be tailored to your specific situation. This might include stopping certain medications such as blood thinners and making sure you have stopped smoking (if you smoke), among other things.
Recovering After Your Brow Lift
Dr. Haque’s post-procedure protocol is designed to help you recover as soon as possible. Dr. Haque will see you for a post-procedure follow up and will review the instructions with you then. It is advised to sleep with your head elevated. You may experience mild pain after this procedure but it can be managed with pain medications and generally gets better within a short period of time. You may experience temporary numbness of the forehead, which should subside within a few weeks.
