When your brow drops and the arch flattens with age and gravity, it can make you look melancholy or exhausted. Usually, the youthful eyebrow sits above the orbital rim and has a soft arch at its outer border. Thus, the goal of a brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is to restore the eyebrow’s natural contour, leaving you with a refreshed and youthful appearance again.
If your brow is sagging or your eyebrows are not evenly spaced, you may want to consider getting forehead lift surgery. It is an elective cosmetic procedure that can be performed independently or in conjunction with other facial surgeries. In addition, it can boost your self-confidence and make you look years younger.
What Does Forehead Lift Surgery Entail?
The forehead, brow and eye area can all benefit from a brow lift to make you look younger and more refreshed. The surgery involves lifting the soft tissue and skin of the brow and forehead.
The brows tend to droop as people become older. This happens because skin and other soft tissues no longer return to their original shape as quickly when stretched. As a result, the space between your brows and eyelashes shrinks. Different methods of brow lifting are used to achieve various effects. Your desired outcome will determine the appropriate plan for you.
All forehead lift procedures take between one to two hours. Afterward, you will be given instructions on how to care for the incisions. You will also have to stop smoking before and after to ensure optimal healing. Dr. Khosh will review all the requirements with you during your consultation.
The Various Brow Procedures Performed by Dr. Khosh
Dr. Khosh uses several techniques for the brows and eyes to rejuvenate the face. Endoscopic and temporal brow lifts are two standard methods for restoring a younger appearance to the forehead; the results are permanent and dramatic.
A second option is the open forehead lift. Only people with unusually high foreheads should consider having this traditional surgery done.
Another option is the direct brow lift. People with facial nerve paralysis or men with severe frown lines on their foreheads are ideal candidates for this procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Khosh will discuss the various treatment choices with you and explain the advantages of each method in detail.
Dr. Khosh may also discuss non-surgical treatments, like® Botox injections, or complementing facial rejuvenation surgeries like blepharoplasty and a facelift. He always strives for results that look natural and harmonious. You can learn more about your options when you visit our office. Get in touch with us to set up a consultation or ask any questions.
