Eyebrow and Forehead Lifting addresses eyebrow position and loose or wrinkled forehead skin and underlying
tissue. To fully understand the benefits of eyebrow and forehead lifting, one must be aware of the importance of the position
of the eyebrows.
Eyebrow position changes as we
age. Our natural eyebrow position, the effects of gravity and fat deflation, how active our eyebrow and forehead muscles are,
and previous eyelid, eyebrow or forehead surgeries (if applicable), all contribute to the position our eyebrows are in today.
The face sends a message, and the position of the eyebrows is a significant part of that message. That message could be, "I
feel worried,” “I feel angry,” or “I feel stressed.” The message could also be, “I feel
calm, rested, and relaxed.”
There are several types of eyebrow and forehead lifts. The type you and your
surgeon choose will depend on your current eyebrow position, facial structure, and on what is possible to maximize your appearance.
The main types of forehead lifting are as follows:
The Pretrichial Eyebrow/ Forehead Lift requires a long incision.
This procedure is ideal for patients who want to both lift the eyebrows and raise and shorten the forehead by removing a strip
of skin and underlying tissue along the incision. Because the forehead is shortened, the hairline is lowered which is ideal
for those with a high forehead. This procedure lifts everything from the hairline down to the eyebrows and can address eyebrow
shape and asymmetry. The scar from the incision, once healed, is virtually undetectable. Following the procedure there will
be some bruising and swelling. Patients usually return to their normal daily routine in 2 – 3 weeks.
The "Gull Wing" Eyebrow/Forehead Lift
The “Gull Wing” or Direct Brow Lift requires removing
a section of skin and underlying tissue above and following the length of the eyebrows. This procedure is ideal for those
who do not want to involve the hairline. The “Gull Wing” beautifully lifts a sagging brow while tightening and
smoothing the forehead by pulling the skin and tissue of the forehead down rather than up. It therefore lowers the hairline
which is ideal for a receding hairline and/ or a high forehead. This procedure also addresses eyebrow shape and asymmetry.
Care is taken to position the scar just along the eyebrows so that it is maximally camouflaged as shown below. Patients will
experience some bruising and swelling following the procedure. They are usually comfortable returning to their normal routine
activities in about 2 weeks.
