Brow lift surgery, also known as a forehead lift, is used to smooth the appearance of the forehead and place a patient’s eyebrows at their proper position. The aging process can bring drooping/low eyebrows, marked forehead creases, and an involuntarily tired appearance. A brow lift allows patients to open up the upper eyelid area by elevating the eyebrows.
The ideal candidate for brow lift surgery is a man or woman with visible signs of aging in the forehead and brow region, such as drooping of the eyebrows and forehead creases.
While most people who undergo brow lift surgery are between 40 and 60 years old, this procedure can help those of any age seeking to erase visible signs of aging or correct an inherited trait, such as a low, heavy brow.
More and more young patients are undergoing brow lifts to elevate their lateral brows into a more aesthetic appearance.
If you are bald, have a receding hairline, or have undergone previous upper-eyelid surgery, it is likely that you can still undergo brow lift surgery. Dr. Mirmanesh may alter the technique and location of the incision to best suit your needs.
Brow lift surgery can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. A brow lift is rarely performed the exact same way for every patient. The procedure is highly customizable based on the patient’s unique needs.
