As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity over time, which contributes to sagging. Sagging leads to drooping and wrinkling that ultimately leave us with an older look. For some people, sagging in the eyebrows and forehead area is of particular concern because it can make you appear much older and more tired than you are. A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure that lifts and tightens the brow area for a refreshed, alert appearance.
There are generally two types of brow lifts: an endoscopic lift and a classic lift. The lift may also be combined with other procedures such as an eyelid lift for optimal results.
A classic lift is characterized by an incision that is made from ear to ear along the hairline. The endoscopic brow lift employs the use of an endoscope for deeper lifting and smaller incisions. Consult with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Jay Granzow to determine which option best suits your needs.
