As a part of normal ageing process the skin of forehead and eyebrows tends to sag down leading to development of wrinkles and bogginess of upper lids. A commonly used cosmetic surgical procedure for tackling these issues is a surgical browlift. A brow lift is also known as a forehead lift. While Botox and dermal fillers offer an excellent method of targeting forehead wrinkles before they become pervasive and deeply etched in the skin, their efficacy is limited if your forehead is already very creased or the skin is loose.
Brow lifts represent a more invasive surgical method that can dramatically tighten the forehead by repositioning the tissue and muscle, particularly the sagging skin that sits heavily across the brow ridge. A browlift typically helps you achieve a longer lasting and younger looking upper face. Other cosmetic procedures that may be performed with a brow lift include:
- Upper and or lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)
- Skin resurfacing techniques
