Brow Lift 101 Everything You’ve Been Wanting To Ask

If you’ve been considering a brow lift (or forehead rejuvenation), read up on what to expect in this blog from Prive Plastics.

What Is A Brow Lift Procedure?

A major part of our communication is based on body language and facial expressions. Our eyebrows play an important role in this form of communication. For example, a furrowed brow is a sign of confusion or dissatisfaction. On the other hand, a relaxed brow conveys a sense of ease and calm.

With time, our eyebrows can start to lose their elasticity, causing them to droop. This drooping can make our eyes and eyebrows look heavy and give the impression that we are angry, stern, or disapproving of others. Brow lifts are a type of cosmetic facial surgery that can correct sagging or low-positioning of our eyebrows. It can eliminate furrowing and restore our brows to a smooth and relaxed look. It is also known as a forehead lift or forehead rejuvenation.

A brow lift can have a dramatically positive effect on your appearance and your self-confidence. It can reduce wrinkles on your forehead, nose bridge, and between your eyes, as well as improve frown lines and raise sagging brows, all while placing your eyebrows in a youthful position.

Why Do Clients Seek Brow Lift Procedures?

The primary reason clients seek to rejuvenate their appearance with a brow lift is the sagging of the brow, which can be caused by a variety of factors. Stress levels, lifestyle elements, and aging can all contribute to the sagging of the brow and the formation of wrinkles and fine lines in the forehead.

Stressful situations often lead to frowning, while lifestyle elements such as sun exposure, smoking, or excessive drinking can also cause sagging. Finally, as we age, our collagen production decreases, leaving the skin less resilient and more prone to sagging. Genetics also plays an important role in the aging process.

What Are The 3 Types Of Brow Lifts?

  • Endoscopic Brow Lift – In this procedure, several small incisions are made behind the hairline, and a small, long, thin instrument is used to dissect the tissue of the forehead, release the tethered areas that cause the skin to sag, and lift the tissue. The tissues are then anchored into place. 

  • Hairline Incisions – As the name indicates, this incision is made along your hairline. This procedure will be done using a minimally invasive version involving an endoscope. The incision will be small and remain hidden within your hairline after healing.

  • Coronal Incision – This form of incision starts at one ear, passes along the hairline across the brow, and ends at the opposite ear. As with the hairline incision, this will be hidden by the hairline once healed.

No matter the type of brow lift used to meet your aesthetic goals, you expect to be comfortable with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia as Dr. Wu works her magic and removes excess skin and expertly tightens musculature and tissue.

Once the procedure is done, Dr. Wu will close up the treatment area using sutures, special clips, or skin adhesives. These may dissolve on their own eventually, or you may need to have them taken out in a later visit. After that, you’ll be given detailed instructions on how to care for the area while it heals. Swelling and redness around the incision are normal, but you should notice an improvement in your brow right away.
