Surgically ascending the eyebrows with a lift challenges the natural aging process. The elastic collagen in your facial skin degrades over time, leading to laxity and wrinkles. Low-set eyebrows appear over time because gravity pulls your forehead facial skin downward. This results in crowding of the upper eyelids and gives the appearance of a constricted and tired face.
Correct Position of the Eyebrows
There is a very important masculine/feminine difference in the correct positioning of the eyebrows.
- A woman’s ideal eyebrow positioning is an asymmetric arc with a peak over the superior bony ridge of the eye socket.
- The desirable look of a man’s eyebrow is a similar arc with a topmost peak at the bony ridge of the eye socket, so as not to feminize his profile.
The goal of a brow lift is to return your eyebrows to a position whereby they will open up the face and produce a well-rested, fresh appearance. Eyelid lift surgery is also commonly combined with a brow lift to correct sagging upper eyelids and conspicuous undereye bags.
Preferred Endoscope Eyebrow Lift Procedure
Dr. Regina Rosenthal prefers to perform brow lifts endoscopically, inserting a small camera through small, hidden incisions within the hairline scalp area. A facelift could be performed with this technique through these same small incisions.
The procedure is performed in layers, using special endoscopic instruments to upwardly lift the forehead and scalp, giving the eyebrows a lift. At your option, forehead muscles between the eyebrows can be weakened to reduce frown lines.
Finally, incisions are skillfully closed to minimize scarring, and bandages are applied to secure the area for optimum healing.
