As we age, muscles in the brow and forehead area may becomes thinner and less elastic and the structures supporting it to the facial skeleton become weaker and less able to resist the pull of gravity. One of the earliest signs of aging occurs in the forehead and eyebrow area.
Facial ageing is a gradual process causing the appearance of heavy eyelids and looking tired, when in reality one may not be! Female patients find this most troubling, as there is dropping of the eyebrows and wrinkling of the skin (frown lines, crow's feet, horizontal forehead lines, etc).
Drooping of the eyebrows can also lead to excessive eyebrow skin accumulating in the upper eyelid.This is a result of the constant use of the muscles in the forehead for facial expression.
The term "brow lift" is used to surgical procedure that can dramatically improve a tired or sad look above the upper eyelid and eyebrow region. It is a series of procedures that are used to; improve the position and shape of the eye brows, reduce frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles. It is an important eyelid surgery that successfully treated the affected areas.
Brow lift surgery can be performed alone or along with a facelift and/or eyelid corrective surgery. The brow lift surgery also plays an important role in eyelid surgery, as the upper eyelids cannot successfully treat until the brow lift has been completed.
Several techniques are used including placing the incisions within the scalp; a patient was literally scalped as an incision was placed from ear to ear to elevate the forehead and brow.
