Miami has a large number of board certified plastic surgeons that can perform many types of cosmetic procedures, including a brow lift. A brow lift is often done to raise the eyebrows, rejuvenate the face, and give it a more youthful appearance. Skin laxity occurs due to the loss of the valuable proteins in the skin as you age. This tends to deflate facial features, and make you look older.
Fine lines and wrinkles are among the earliest signs of facial aging, and they often occur at the same time with the overall drooping or descent of facial features. Sagging skin creates a downward pull on the entire face, causing the eyes, nose, and mouth to droop. This, coupled with the deep furrows and lines that emerge across the forehead, conspire to make you look tired and angry all the time.
Is brow lift surgery right for you?
If the skin across your forehead has started to sag, causing the eyebrows to descend from their original position, then you are likely to be a good candidate for a brow lift. When this happens the eyes appear smaller, but brow lift surgery can open up the eyes, and give you a ‘doe-eyed’ look.
Also, if you have lines stretching across the forehead and between the eyebrows, which make you look older than you are, brow lift surgery can give your face a refreshed appearance.
What’s involved in Brow lift Surgery
Brow lift surgery is designed to elevate the brows, and reverse the descent of the upper portion of the face. The procedure is generally performed on an outpatient basis, under either local or general anesthesia.
The incisions for the brow lift can be made along the temples, above the forehead, or behind the hairline. The location of the incisions should be discussed with your plastic surgeon prior to surgery. After the incisions are made, the surgeon will then lift the skin upward. This will tighten the skin and also reduce sagging.
A brow lift can also be done using a device known as an endoscope. An endoscopic brow lift utilizes state of the art technology, which reduces the need for incisions. This procedure has a shorter recovery time, and there are fewer risks associated with it. In addition, the incisions made in an endoscopic brow lift are fewer and smaller.
In Miami, there are times when a brow lift is done in combination with an eyelid lift, or a facelift, to create an overall rejuvenated appearance.
