As they get older, some people might experience the appearance of excessive upper eyelid skin and sagging eyebrows. It may cause the eyes to become apparently smaller and the person may look excessively tired or depressed, although this is usually not the case. To rejuvenate the skin around the eyes, to lift the eyebrows and to achieve a sharper and a more expressive look, a brow lift may be performed. A brow lift is a surgical procedure that is done to lift the eyebrows and to address the excessive eyelid skin issue. The results usually enable a person to achieve a more fresh face look, will open up his or her eyes, which will look bigger and more expressive, and enhance his or her confidence and self-esteem.
The incision for a brow lift is usually done in the hairline region of the scalp, just above the forehead, to avoid visible scarring. The plastic surgeon will use a traditional or a less invasive, conservative technique, depending on the specific circumstances and patient's preferences. The surgery is usually done under general anesthesia, although the less-invasive form of brow lift may be performed using a local anesthetic applied on the forehead. During the brow lift surgery, the surgeon will lift the forehead skin and will re-attach it in a higher position. This will cause the eyebrows to be positioned higher, which will open up the eyes and will make the person look younger. Any excessive skin that results from re-drapping the forehead skin will be removed, and sutures will be applied.
Before the surgery, it is important to discuss your medical history with an experienced plastic surgeon who will choose the best brow lift technique for your needs and preferences. As with any other surgery, a brow lift is associated with potential side effects and complications. However, in the hands of a highly trained and experienced surgeon, the risks are minimal. If you take blood thinner medication for a heart condition, or have a history of high blood pressure, make sure to discuss it with the surgeon, as it may increase the risk of bleeding.
