What is Brow Lift?
Upper third facial compound area (forehead and eyebrows) loses its youthful contour gradually, giving a wrinkled, tired look.
Brow Lift, essentially reconstructs three problems of the upper third facial compound:
- Excess skin and “heavy” upper outer eyelid and lower forehead. Patients, typically describe it as a sense of tired look. This takes place due to gravity, causing skin drooping over the upper eye socket, having as a result, soft tissues obstructing even more normal sight.
- Wrinkles above and/or below the eyes (radix) caused by powerful muscle contractions around the area.
- Lateral wrinkles of the forehead which are mainly caused by frontalis muscle activity.
Α brow lift, will probably improve “crow’s feet” on the outer surface of the eyelid, without however eliminating it.
In general terms, brow lift, can be performed with 2 methods:
- open brow lift technique
Open brow lift technique tends to be replaced nowadays by the endoscopic method, mainly due to the disadvantage of the scar, although the results of the first usually stand the test of time. At your first appointment, Dr Karmiris will discuss with you in detail, the advantages and disadvantages of each method.
However, both methods, offer results standing the test of time that if combined with blepharoplasty, gives an even youthful look.
