Details of a brow lift
Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift helps correct sagging of the eyebrows, frown lines and forehead creases that can negatively influence the facial appearance. Depending on various factors, the procedure can be performed a variety of ways: with a hairline scar; with temple scars; or endoscopically, with small scars behind the upper hairline in the scalp. The objective is a smoother, more rejuvenated forehead and a brighter appearance to the face and eyes.
Who is a good candidate for a brow lift?
Good candidates for a brow lift are generally men and women over 35 who have deep frown lines, forehead creases and excess tissue of the upper eyelids, particularly lateral hooding over the eyes. Some individuals have brow descent or low brows that make them look angry or tired. Clients should be in good mental and physical health, with realistic expectations for improvement rather than perfection.
This procedure may be combined with blepharoplasty (removal of excess eyelid skin), a facelift, or facial fat grafting to rejuvenate the entire face. During the initial consultation you will discuss with Dr. Shermak what you would like to improve so she can understand your expectations and determine how to best achieve the desired result.
