Brow lift surgery corrects signs of aging that have appeared in the upper portions of the face, by gently lifting the tissues through small incisions in the patient's hairline. The forehead and brow are often the first areas to show signs of aging, even in the late thirties. A low brow, deep lines in the forehead, and a tired, angry, or sad expression may not reflect a person’s age or personality. Gravity, the environment, or hereditary factors all contribute to this process.
Who can benefit from brow lift surgery?
Brow lift surgery may be recommended to correct conditions such as the following:
- A brow that has descended
- Crow’s feet
- Excess upper eyelid skin
- Forehead creases, Glabellar creases or "frown lines"
- Abnormal brow shape
The Endoscopic Technique
An endoscopic brow lift is the preferred surgical method of correcting brow ptosis today. An endoscope is a surgical instrument used to aid in surgery by providing a view of the underlying tissues, allowing for a less invasive surgical approach and quicker recovery time. Through 4 discreet incisions behind the hairline, Dr. Frenzel lifts and tightens the forehead skin and slightly elevates the brow. Lifting is gentle and conservative to ensure a natural result.
After Your Brow Lift Surgery
Recovery time is approximately one week, during which a prescription pain medication may be necessary to alleviate discomfort. Do you live in Arlington, Dallas or Fort Worth, contact Dr. Frenzel and Advanced Cosmetic Surgery for information on the endoscopic brow lift.
