The next time you are near a mirror, give this a try: raise and lower one brow with your hand. Does lifting your eyebrow remove heaviness in your upper eyelids? If it does, then a brow lift (also known as a browplasty) may be an option to restore a more youthful, alert look to your face. Brow lifts are also used to reduce lines between the eyebrows and on the forehead.
Eyebrow Changes Over Time
As we age and our skin’s elasticity decreases, our eyebrows can start to droop and sag. Additionally, as our eyebrows change, they can cause our eyelids to sag as well. Sagging eyebrows and eyelids can cause women and men to appear tired, angry, and older than they really are.
Brows are also susceptible to developing deep wrinkles over time. For many patients, other skin treatments or injections can reduce or remove these wrinkles. However, some deep-set wrinkles need a different treatment, and this is where a brow lift can help. Dr. Viggiano works with each patient individually to determine the right course of treatment to correct brow issues.
A Brow Lift Procedure
A brow lift is performed under moderate sedation. Small incisions are used, and scars are hidden within a patient’s hair. As with any procedure, Dr. Viggiano strives to ensure that the brow lift results look beautiful and natural. Dr. Viggiano consults with each patient before a brow lift to listen to all areas of concern and to assess your individual facial structure.
Some patients choose to combine a brow lift with other treatments, such as eyelid surgery. As with any procedure, recovery time from a brow lift will depend on individual factors as well as the type of treatment completed.
