What is a Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)?
The concept of the brow lift (also called a forehead lift) is to reposition the eyebrows back to where they belong, because this relieves the lateral hooding of the upper eyelids and eliminates most of the wrinkles in the forehead. A brow lift also removes or severely weakens the muscles of frowning, sometimes called the “11’s,” which are those two vertical lines between your eyes at the top of your nose. Dr. Richard D’Amico performs brow lift surgery in Englewood, NJ to restore brightness and a well-rested look to a person’s face*.
Am I a good candidate?
Healthy men and women who experience bothersome brow drooping and forehead wrinkling are appropriate candidates for this procedure*.
What to expect during the procedure
A brow lift may be performed in one of two ways: either through the use of an endoscope (surgical video device) and special instruments placed through small incisions made within the hairline, or through incisions in the scalp, called a “coronal” or “open” lift. Both allow the tissue and muscle beneath the skin to be repositioned to correct the visible creases and furrows in your forehead. The endoscopic technique may be done in conjunction with incisions hidden within the natural crease of the upper eyelids to eliminate frown lines between the brows, on or above the bridge of the nose.
During brow lift surgery, Dr. Richard D’Amico can also weaken the frontalis muscle to soften some of the horizontal lines. Of course, a temporary way to achieve this skin smoothing effect is with BOTOX® Cosmetic. For those in need of a permanent solution, however, a surgical forehead lift is the only way to accomplish this*.
Recovery is rapid and takes about a week.*
