The brow or forehead is an expressive part of the face. As skin loses its elasticity with age, dynamic lines can appear from years of expressing surprise or concern. The eyebrows can lose their youthful arch and hover closer to the eyes. A browlift is a facial procedure that can smooth away frown lines and restore arched eyebrows to rejuvenate the eyes and upper face. Dr. Christine Blaine at Blaine Plastic Surgery offers brow lifts for patients at our clinics in Huntington, Staten Island and NYC, NY.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, can give patients with low or heavy brow lines a more refreshed, pleasant and youthful appearance. This procedure reduces fine lines and wrinkles on the upper face. It can also help patients achieve a more youthful brow line by raising the eyebrows to an aesthetically pleasing position. There are various approaches to this cosmetic procedure, one of which will be suggested upon consultation based on your anatomy, goals and expectations.
Forehead Lift Options
There are a variety of options to complete a brow lift. For a slight brow lift, non-surgical procedures can be performed to refresh the brow. Botox® can be used to smooth frown lines and give the eyebrows a slight lift by relaxing certain muscles. For surgical forehead lifts, Dr. Blaine offers both endoscopic and full lift procedures. Incisions are made above the hairline when possible to hide evidence of the procedure.
Brow lifts can remove excess skin and reposition the skin, tissue and muscle for a more youthful appearance. Often, brow lifts are combined with blepharoplasty (upper or lower eyelid lifts) or facelifts.
If your forehead lines or brow position cause you to look perpetually upset or older, a brow lift may improve your facial expression and create a more youthful appearance. Contact us at Blaine Plastic Surgery today to schedule a brow lift consultation at one of our New York clinics.
