Brow Lift is a procedure which is used to lift the eyebrows or restore them to a higher position; usually the original position of your eyebrows in your youth. As we age, the skin thins out due to loss of some elements within the skin, such as less oil glands and fat cells. Coupled with the effects of the sun’s ultraviolet rays, these can result in sagging of the skin with some wrinkling, notably in the face, including the forehead.
Candidates for a brow lift can be those whose upper eyelids look like “curtains” going down along the sides of the eyes and those who have undergone upper eyelid blepharoplasty, who after several years, appear to need additional skin removal on the upper eyelids. For those who previously underwent upper eyelid blepharoplasty, removal of additional skin on the upper eyelids may further pull down the eyebrow and may put the eyebrows in a more awkward position or pull up the upper eyelid and cause a perennial “surprised” look! In this instance, the individual may just need a brow lift for the skin crease over the upper eyelids to re-appear and give the patient a refreshed look.
