A brow lift is a solution to a heavy, sagging brow. This procedure removes excess skin on the forehead and repositions the underlying muscles and tissues for a smoother contour in the upper third of the face. Dr. Steven J. Covici is an experienced oculofacial plastic surgeon who helps patients achieve noticeable results.
Benefits of Brow and Forehead Lifts
Eyebrow and Forehead Lifting addresses eyebrow and loose or wrinkled forehead skin and underlying tissue. Anyone who wishes to minimize these telltale signs of growing older should consider a brow lift, which reduces wrinkles, eliminates lines, and raises eyebrows to restore a youthful appearance. After a short recovery period, patients notice brighter and more naturally alert eyes as well as improved self-confidence.
Ideal Candidates for Treatment
The ideal brow lift candidate is someone whose eyebrow position has changed due to the effects of gravity and fat deflation. There are several types of eyebrow and forehead lifts. The type you and Dr. Covici choose will depend on your current eyebrow position, facial structure, and on what is possible to maximize your appearance. Patients are invited to review Dr. Covici's gallery to see the results of other patient procedures.
Types of Surgeries
- Endoscopic Forehead Lift
- The Endoscopic Brow/ Forehead Lift is very popular. It requires five small incisions hidden in the hair and leaves no visible scar. This procedure can lift everything from the hairline to the eyebrows. It tightens and smoothes the entire forehead while lifting the eyebrow area which "opens up" the entire upper face. Eyebrow shape and asymmetry can be addressed with this type of lift.
- Direct Brow Lift
- The Direct Brow Lift requires removing a section of skin and underlying tissue above and following the length of the eyebrows. This procedure is ideal for those who do not want to involve the hairline. The direct brow lift beautifully lifts a sagging brow while tightening and smoothing the forehead by pulling the skin and tissue of the forehead down rather than up. It, therefore, lowers the hairline, which is ideal for a receding hairline and/ or a high forehead. This procedure also addresses eyebrow shape and asymmetry. Care is taken to position the scar just above the eyebrows so that it is maximally camouflaged.
