How a Brow Lift Can Rejuvenate Your Face

Aging means our faces begin to change and we may no longer look like the younger versions of ourselves. With so many anti-aging treatments and procedures on the market, knowing which one is right for you and your aesthetic desires may be daunting. If you are looking for a procedure that eliminates forehead wrinkles, establishes a youthful appearance, and has results that last well into the future, a brow lift may be a great option for you. Dr. Kyle Shaddix of Shaddix Plastic Surgery performs each brow lift with skill, compassion, and incredible results.

What Is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift is a surgical procedure that can reduce the signs of aging on a patient’s face by eliminating forehead lines and wrinkles and improving the appearance of the upper eye. During the procedure, Dr. Shaddix will raise the soft tissue and skin on the forehead and brow to smooth out any lines and folds and move the eyebrows to a more youthful position. A brow lift is not only done as an anti-aging measure but also corrects sagging or dropping brows and eyelids that may contribute to vision problems.

What a Brow Lift Can Do

A brow lift poses many aesthetic and practical benefits. This procedure produces noticeable results such as:

  • Smooth forehead lines and wrinkles.
  • Flatten the appearance of a furrowed brow.
  • Improve the appearance of crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes.
  • Reduce sagging upper eyelids.
  • Remove excess skin.
  • Elevate and reposition the brow line.
  • Establish a more youthful arch to the brows.
  • Provide a more awake and energetic expression.

Different Brow Lift Techniques

There are a few ways to have a brow lift done. Each produces the same desirable results, but one may be better suited to your unique needs and goals than the other. After a consultation with Dr. Shaddix, he will determine which brow lift procedural technique is the safest and most effective option. The five brow lift techniques include:

Temporal Brow Lift

Although similar, a temporal browlift does not require a camera to be inserted under the skin. For this type of brow lift, one-inch-long incisions are made just behind the hairline. Then your doctor will pull the skin and tissue back into the desired position before securing it. This method typically only requires local anesthesia.

Direct Brow Lift

A direct brow lift is performed by making an incision just above the brows to manually release and then tighten the forehead muscles. This type of brow lift can also remove excess skin to shorten a tall forehead, before suturing the area back together. It is typically performed on patients with thicker or bushier eyebrows in order to hide the scars within the hair.

Coronal Brow Lift

A Coronal Brow Lift requires an incision to be made behind the hairline from ear to ear. The forehead skin and tissue are then pulled back to the point of overlapping the scalp behind it. The extra, overlapping skin is removed from the scalp before being sewn back together. This is not recommended for individuals with high hairlines, thinning hair, or those who are susceptible to hair loss.

Hairline Brow Lift

This style of brow lift is performed similarly to the coronal brow lift but in the opposite direction. Rather than removing the overlapping skin from the scalp, an incision is made just before the hairline where the forehead is pulled up to meet the scalp, and the excess forehead skin is removed. This is a great option for individuals with a high hairline or receding hairline.

In each case, brow lift surgery typically lasts between 1 and 2 hours.

Who Can Benefit from a Brow Lift?

Anyone who would like to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles can benefit from a brow lift. It is also a great option for individuals who experience sagging or drooping brows and eyelids as well as those who want to establish a more youthful and alert expression. Brow lift procedures can also be done to correct issues related to hairline placement.
