Gravity and time are not kind. The entire body sags to some degree, but certain areas, obviously, are more evident than others. One of those easy-to-spot areas is the brows. Over time your brows sag and droop. Stress and repeated muscle movements don’t help matters.
This drooping can also give other people the wrong impression about you. Drooping brows can give you a perpetually tired or angry look, neither of which is good. You’ll start hearing offhand comments from co-workers about your either being tired or mad.
Who needs that? Instead opt for a forehead lift from Elite Plastic Surgery and put the droop behind you.
What is a brow lift?
Forehead lifts are also called brow lifts. The surgical procedure aims to eliminate wrinkles and creases in the forehead area and the area around the brows. Meriting particular attention are the horizontal lines and furrows on the forehead. People with sagging skin over their upper eyelids can really benefit from a brow lift. Sometimes a brow lift is combined with eyelid surgery to really take the years off.
How do they do a brow lift?
At Elite, we utilize digital photography and computer imaging to show you how a brow lift can change your appearance long before any actual surgery. We’ll discuss if we can achieve what you want with either the traditional “coronal” technique, of if the “endoscopic” method will work for you.
In a coronal brow lift, an incision is made within the hairline, spanning from one sideburn area up above the forehead and down to the other sideburn. The skin and soft tissue is then loosened down to the brows. The small muscles that produce wrinkling between the eyes may be removed. Then the skin is re-draped upward.
In an endoscopic brow lift, four or five small keyhole incisions are made within the hairline and an endoscope is used to visualize the soft tissue and muscle. The muscles and deep tissues are re-suspended as needed and the skin is re-draped.
If you feel like you look tired all the time, a brow lift could be in order. Call us at 616-459-1907 to schedule your consultation.
