The brow lift is a wonderful alternative to a full face lift for men and women whose age primarily shows on the upper part of the face. As the skin and underlying tissues lose elasticity, the brow may sink further and further downward. The effect of this downward motion is a "heavy" appearance in the eyes, one that can lead to a perception of tiredness, anger, or unfriendliness.
Men and women with sagging brows may or may not have lines and wrinkles on the forehead in addition to concerns above the eyes. Essentially, however, the brow lift also smoothes the entire forehead area. Depending on the extent of facial change desired, the brow lift may be accompanied by other procedures, such as an eyelid lift. The eyelid will be addressed if excess skin and fat are causing puffiness or sagging of the eyelid itself.
One of the benefits that patients of Foothill Cosmetic Surgery Center experience is the minimal invasiveness of technique employed by our experienced physician. Rather than directly tightening skin and tissues through potentially visible incisions, Dr. Sidhu performs what is referred to as an endoscopic brow lift. Patients of our Glendora practice love the results that come from this precision surgical technique.
Endoscopic brow lift surgery involves just three small incisions, one near the scalp and one near each ear. Through these incisions, a tiny telescope directs the surgeon to the appropriate area for tightening. When these areas are identified, tiny dissolvable "tacks" called endotines are positioned to hold tissues in place. Endotines dissolve gradually over the course of a few months, during which the forehead and brows become assimilated to their new position.
The results of the brow lift procedure, due to the precision used in tightening, will look beautiful and natural. Working with an experienced physician who insists on natural beauty, patients can feel confident that they will not look "surprised" or "scared," but will simply look more energetic and rested.
Our eyes are referred to as the "windows to the soul." More directly, our eyes can keep us looking young and vibrant or can age us. If you want to reverse the signs of age seen in the forehead and eye area, we can help. Contact Foothill Cosmetic Surgery Center in Glendora to learn about the brow lift procedure.
