What is Brow Lift?
One of the important changes that are associated with aging is drooping of the eyebrows. Along with heredity and sun damage, another important factor that contributes to aging is gravity. Recent advances in cosmetic surgery now allow us to reduce and remove these changes, a process called Brow lift.
Various ways to lift the brow are:
Non-Surgical Brow Lift
Using Neurotoxin (Botox)
In this procedure, the lateral brows can also be raised slightly using neurotoxin injection techniques. The muscles that are responsible to pull the brow down are weakened to get an elevation. To achieve the lift, the orbicularis oculi muscles (that create crow’s feet) and the procerus and corrugator muscles (that create the 11’s between the eyebrows) are injected. However, the effect is very slight and temporary. This technique is best for the younger patient with only early eyebrow descent.
Threadlifts, are basically a non-surgical brow lift that involves inserting a tiny dissolvable thread into the face and pulling up the skin. The dissolvable threads are covered in microscopic barbs that anchor into the tissue, pull it up, and tack it in place.
This is a minimally invasive procedure and the results may last for one and half to two years.
Surgical Brow lift
There are many techniques by which brow lift can be done like conventional coronal incision, temporal incision, transblepharoplasty incision and endoscopic technique. What is important is to give a balanced rejuvenated look, by the most simple and effective technique which leaves the least complications.
Essentially, all techniques endeavour to release all attachments between the brow and the bone and then pull the skin up. The excess skin can be either removed or freed to allow it to contract.
