The brow lift is another procedure that can yield dramatic results. This procedure is perfect for patients who suffer from a drooping or lined forehead that causes them to look angry, sad or tired.
A brow lift addresses the muscles above the eyes to smooth lines and raise the eyebrows, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. This procedure is often combined with other operations such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and facelifts.
Brow lifts are most common in patients in the 40- to 60-year age range, anyone who suffers from a lined or drooping forehead — whether due to muscle activity or genetics — is eligible. The procedure is usually performed in an office-based facility or surgery center under local anesthesia and sedation.
Brow lifts are performed in one of two ways: through the conventional surgical method, in which the incision is hidden beneath the hairline, or with an endoscope, in which a tiny camera and instruments are inserted through a few small incisions. Either technique will produce similar results. Dr. Chaudhari will work with you to determine which option is the best for you.
