How to Choose the Best Brow Lift Technique

What is a brow lift?

A brow lift, sometimes called a forehead lift, is a type of plastic surgery that aims to reposition the soft tissues of the forehead and eyebrows to restore a more youthful contour to the forehead, eyebrows, and upper eyelids. This procedure is often sought after by individuals looking to correct drooping eyebrows and reduce wrinkles and forehead lines that develop with age. By elevating the eyebrows, a brow lift can enhance the overall appearance of the face, making it look more refreshed and alert.

How is a brow lift performed?

Brow lift techniques have evolved significantly over the years, leaving us with a variety of options designed to meet a range of aesthetic goals. Here are the most common approaches:

  • Traditional incision: Often made across the top of the head from ear to ear, hidden within the hairline to minimize visible scarring.
  • Trichophytic incision: Made directly at the hairline, which allows for the lifting of the forehead while minimizing changes to the hairline's position.
  • Lateral brow lift: Targets the outer areas of the brow for subtle lifting, involving small incisions in the temporal region, also hidden within the hair.
  • Endoscopic forehead lift: Uses small incisions within the hairline and a tiny camera to assist the surgeon in adjusting the tissues and muscles through minimally invasive means.

How do I know which brow lift technique is best for me?

When it comes to brow lift techniques, there are a number of factors to take into account, including your aesthetic goals, the health and appearance of your skin, and any special considerations regarding your forehead and brow. Luckily, Dr. Myint is here to help you. During your consultation, he will evaluate your facial structure and learn more about your desired look before putting together a personalized brow lift plan.

How long will my brow lift results last?

Nothing lasts forever, but most patients experience a dramatic improvement in the appearance of their brow that lasts for years. To ensure your results are long-lasting, Dr. Myint recommends taking good care of your skin and using sunscreen to reduce the effects of prolonged sun exposure. With maintenance treatments, you can continue enjoying a smoother, more youthful appearance.
