Need a Lift? Learn About Eyebrow Lifts
- Posted on: Apr 15 2020
If your eyes are the window to your soul, then your eyebrows are the window frames. Possibly the curtains. Either way, they’re important to ensuring your eyes, and your whole face, look framed and beautiful. Your eyebrows also start to droop as you get older. This can instantly add years to your appearance. But don’t worry, we have just the thing to take care of that. Eyebrow lifts or forehead lifts are just the thing you need to get a younger, youthful-looking appearance again. Eyebrow lifts help to correct not just droopy eyebrows, but creasing of the forehead, frown lines, and drooping skin over the eyelids.
There are two different kinds of eyebrow lifts that we perform: the classic or the endoscopic. Here are some basics about each procedure to help you determine which might best suit your needs.
Classic Eyebrow Lift
A classic lift is done by making a long incision typically running along the hairline from the top of the head down to your ears. This may vary depending on your individual forehead structure and concerns but it could go even beyond the hairline. Dr. Tarbet will then remove excess skin and fat while repositioning your skin and muscle to give you the appearance you’re looking for.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
In an endoscopic brow lift, Dr. Tarbet will instead make 3-5 short incisions in the hairline instead of one long one. At this point, she can then insert a camera into the incision to see what’s beneath and manipulate the tissue through the other incisions. Then she can still rejuvenate the eyebrow, eyelid, and forehead without being so invasive. This means the recovery time is shorter and your scarring will be minimal and less obvious.
An eyebrow lift can give you a subtle or dramatic change in your appearance. This all depends on your appearance and goals before surgery.
