Brow Lift

Individuals with droopy brows may notice a visible change in their brow angle, such as a lower or less prominent arch that gives off a frowning impression or, in some cases, brow asymmetry. Furthermore, drooping of brows due to any cause can also cause sagging eyelids which makes one look tired, even when they are well-rested. 

A brow lift surgery, also known as a forehead rejuvenation or forehead lift, is a surgical procedure to lift the brows. It improves the appearance of the forehead, alters the angle of the eyebrows, and addresses both functional and aesthetic issues of the eyelids by raising the soft tissue and skin of the forehead and brow.

Why it’s done

A brow lift surgery is a viable option for:   

  • Drooping of eyelids, resulting in less entry of light, weak eyesight, or smaller looking eyes.
  • Brightening up their tired-looking eyes or improve the perception of a frustrated look.
  • Correcting droopy eyelids due to ageing, sagging skin, or a connective tissue disorder without altering the double eyelids.
  • Addressing eye irritation caused by rubbing of eyelashes against the eye.
  • Hidden double eyelid crease due to sagging skin.
  • Those who want to correct brow asymmetry.

How it’s done?

Brow lift procedures may vary depending on several factors, such as the age, any pre-existing medical or eye conditions, degree of skin sagging, and the desired results. The surgeon will choose the specific technique and determine the location of the incisions. A brow lift surgery is further classified into two, depending on the location of the eyebrows and the resulting scars. 

Brow lift 

It is suitable for patients who wish to lift or alter the arch of the eyebrow and where there is little space between the eye and brows. In such cases, a further reduction of height would not favour the aesthetic outcome. Hence the lifting is done through an incision above the eyebrow.

In the process of lifting the eyebrows, excess skin is removed, and the brow arch is positioned upwards. 

Sub-Brow lift

In this procedure, an incision is made below the brow. It is suitable for patients with ample space between eye and eyebrow. This procedure can bring satisfactory results for individuals with the drooping of the outer corner of the eye and also lift droopy eyelids, exposing hidden double eyelid crease and relieve eye irritation caused by eyelashes when they rub against the eye.

Is brow lift surgery worth it?

According to a study, 93% of patients were satisfied with the final result and 95% said they would recommend the procedure.
