Eyebrow lifting

Eyebrow lifting, also known as brow lift or forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at rejuvenating the forehead and eyebrow region by correcting sagging brows, forehead wrinkles, and drooping skin. This procedure helps to create a more youthful and refreshed appearance by lifting the eyebrows to a higher position and smoothing out forehead lines.

Procedure Overview

  1. Consultation: The process begins with a detailed consultation with a plastic surgeon. The surgeon assesses the patient’s facial structure, skin condition, and aesthetic goals. The patient’s medical history is also reviewed to discuss potential risks and complications.
  2. Anesthesia: Eyebrow lifting can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, ensuring the patient is comfortable during the procedure.
  3. Incisions: The surgeon makes incisions typically within the hairline, above the temples, or sometimes directly above the eyebrows. The placement of the incisions depends on the specific technique used and the patient’s individual anatomy.
  4. Tissue Repositioning: The underlying muscles and tissues of the forehead and brow area are repositioned and tightened to lift the eyebrows to a higher position. Excess skin may be removed to smooth out forehead wrinkles.
  5. Closing Incisions: The incisions are closed with sutures or skin adhesives. Care is taken to ensure minimal scarring, often by placing the incisions within the natural folds of the skin or the hairline.
