Among the benefits of brow lift surgery, the most obvious is a younger looking forehead. As we age, the skin on our forehead sags, gradually migrating toward the center as well as downward. The movements of the muscles on our foreheads eventually form deep grooves in the skin. Because of this, a brow lift should do more than just pull the skin straight up or remove the grooves. It should reverse the direction in which the skin on the forehead migrates. Every brow lift is individually tailored to a specific face and a specific pattern of aging. Slightly different procedures can be used for men and women, in order to preserve the masculinity or femininity of the face, if the patient wishes.
But also among the benefits of brow lift surgery is younger looking eyes. Often with age the skin of the brow migrates into the space of the upper eyelid. Surgery can reverse this process, restoring some of the appearance of youth to the eyes.
In modern medicine, a brow lift is usually performed endoscopically. This means that a tiny light and camera at the end of a slender tube are inserted under the skin of the brow. With this, the surgeon can see the positioning and attachment of facial muscles, getting a better sense of where and how to do the work. A brow lift may also be combined with other forms of plastic surgery.
