What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a cosmetic procedure we perform to reduce signs of aging in the forehead area. The goal is to smooth your forehead lines and furrows while elevating your brows for a more youthful, bright and alert appearance.
A brow lift will also reduce your crow’s feet lines at the corner of your eyes and can even help lower a receding hairline. In some situations, brow lifting can improve peripheral vision by lifting the eyelids.
Dr. Schaffer will strive to make you look more youthful, alive and more vibrant. Importantly, Dr. Schaffer artistically customizes his brow lift procedures for you specifically.
You can have all these benefits – a dramatic improvement, a natural look, a hidden incision – with a speedy recovery and minimum down time. When you consult with Dr. Schaffer, you can be sure that he will inform you of your options and guide you toward the treatment that is best for you.
Brow Lift Techniques
The brow lift technique chosen depends on the patient’s skin and the appearance of the eyebrows and eyelids.
A classic lift requires a long incision from top of the head at the hair line, and down to the ears. For someone who has a high forehead, a coronal incision, which is made behind the hairline, may be used.
This type of brow lift requires three to five small incisions that are made across the forehead, at the hairline. Shorter incisions means a shorter recovery time and less scarring.
