A brow lift is more designed to create better brow shape and position than it is to cause profound elevation. A brow lift is often performed along with a facelift or other facial rejuvenation procedures. Some people have inherited traits that cause them to have a heavy brow as early as their 20s or 30s.
One technique for performing a brow lift requires an incision across the top of the scalp, beginning above your ears. The incision may be placed toward the middle of the scalp where it is hidden within your hair or at the front of the hairline. Through this incision, your cosmetic plastic surgeon can modify or remove parts of the muscles that cause wrinkling or frown lines, remove excess skin and lift your eyebrows to a more pleasing position.
Most patients are good candidates for an endoscopic brow lift. The procedure is a minimally invasive technique that requires several small incisions into the scalp. The endoscope, inserted through these tiny incisions, allows Dr Scamp to see and work on the various internal structures of the forehead.
After surgery, you will have temporary puffiness and discolouration that may involve your eyelid and cheek areas as well. You may experience numbness and itchiness of your scalp as well as some loss of hair around the scar region. You should be able to wash your hair in a few days and be back to work within 10 days.
