The popularity of brow lifts
Lift my brow for a younger look. People who are seeking a that younger look are considering a brow lift. This is a minimally invasive procedure, that lifts the outer ends of the eyebrows, widening the eyes and smoothing small wrinkles in the forehead. Countless numbers of women all across the country are seeking out facial plastic surgeons who can lift their fallen arches, and smooth out wrinkled and sagging skin. In fact, lateral brow lifts are one of the most requested procedures for women ages 35 to 65.
The cause of drooping eye brows
If you want to know what causes the eyebrows to droop, it is part physiology and part physics. As we age, skin loses its elasticity, and begins to hollow and sag. That is the physiology part. Because they have last their elasticity, gravity causes the brows to begin to drop down below their ideal resting place. That is the physics part. As the brows drop, so do the surrounding areas of the face. This is why so many people have crow’s feet, furrowed foreheads, and folding of the skin around the eyes. Many patients are seeking to rid themselves of this excess skin, re-gaining their feminine, gently arched brow line.
Explaining the procedure
Of the different type of brow lift procedures, the lateral lift is the least invasive. To perform this procedure, a facial plastic surgeon will make tiny incisions near the temples at the hairline. He or she then uses an endoscope to pull the outer ends of the eyebrows back to an ideal position. The brows are secured in the correct place by sutures that are hidden along the temple at the hairline. The sutures are removed within a week. A lateral brow lift is usually performed in an outpatient facility. It takes about two hours to perform the surgery under local anesthesia. The majority of patients are able to return to their daily activities in just a few days.
