Browlift

browliftAs the face ages, the brow usually descends with the rest of the face. Although the nose is relatively fixed, the central eyebrow usually does descend some. This produces some transverse creases at the base of the nose. The lateral eyebrow is less fixed, and usually descends more than the medial part. This causes two problems. First, all the tissues that were above the bony orbital rim are now in the upper eyelid. Secondly, the lateral eye muscle (the orbicularis) bunches and you develop “crow’s feet.” Generally, you do not even notice most of this. Instead, what you see is the formation of transverse forehead lines as the forehead muscle (the frontalis) tries to hold the eyelid up. Though an excellent drug elsewhere, reversing this with Botox ® only risks having the eye brows fall to their lowest point.

A browlift:

We generally, therefore, recommend a browlift at the time of a primary Today’s Facelift, and one is almost always needed for a secondary facelift if it was not done at the time of the original procedure.

The procedure is done endoscopically through small incisions in the scalp in line with the nerves. This eliminates the numbness of the older type of browlift. The incisions are also much smaller, heal faster, and have much less hair loss. Like Today’s Facelift, we fix the tissues to solid deep structures to prevent relapse and improve longevity. Usually you can hardly find the incisions by a week. There is minimal bruising and the browlift adds no recovery time to a Today’s Facelift procedure. Additionally, we remove most of the muscles between the eyebrows to eliminate those little parentheses that tend to form as we age.
