Brow Lift

Brow Lift Plastic Surgery in the Philippines

Performed to reshape and elevate the eyebrows using the added advantages of improving the look of the eyes and reducing wrinkles present between the eyebrows and on the brow. The eyebrows play role in a people appearance. The emotions of surprise, doubt, curiosity, despair, anger, anxiety, and laughter are all played out across the stage of the brow. The descent or sagging of the eyebrows as we age often produces a "tired" or depressed, mad appearance, and might cause fullness or "hooding" of the upper eyelid. Oftentimes, the eyelids are perceived to be the trouble area, when in fact, descent of the brow causes the eyelid skin to seem excessive.

Am I A Candidate?

Proper patient selection is critical to the choice of a particular technique. If you have one or more of the following conditions, you may be a good candidate for Brow Lift:

  • A sagging or low position of the eyebrows, creating a sad or tired appearance
  • Deep horizontal creases across the forehead
  • Deep frown lines between the eyebrows and/or across the top of the nose
  • An appearance of excess skin in the upper eyelid area (hooding), which may obstruct the peripheral vision

Your Consultation

Our Board Certified Surgeons will discuss with you your goals for the surgery and the areas of improvement you would like to achieve, and take your complete history with respect to any previous cosmetic facial and eyelid surgery and any medical conditions which might influence your recovery.

He will then perform a comprehensive evaluation of your face, forehead, and eyelids, to determine the appropriate recommendation of a procedure or combination of procedures designed specifically for you to help you achieve your goal. This may include other procedure in addition to the Brow Lift, such as Blepharoplasty, Face Lift, Injectable Fillers, or Botox treatments.

Will Insurance Cover My Brow Lift Procedure?

For the majority of patients, brow or Forehead Lifting is strictly a cosmetic procedure. Although we require payment in advance, your insurance company may reimburse part or all of the cost of brow or Forehead Lift surgery in the rare situation in which the procedure is deemed medically necessary because of visual impairment. This condition will usually need to be documented by your ophthalmologist, who will perform visual field testing. Because every insurance carrier is different, we recommend that you check with your own insurance company to determine the level of coverage. Our office will assist you in obtaining reimbursement from your carrier, if applicable.

The Procedure

A variety of technical approaches can be used to achieve the goals of the Brow Lift, depending on your individual characteristics and examination. Traditional techniques involve making an incision in the scalp, hidden behind the hairline. For patients with a high or receding forehead hair line, the incision is often located precisely at the frontal hair line, so that the hair line will not be further elevated.

Alternatively, minimally invasive techniques now allow us to perform Forehead Lifting through small incisions placed behind the hairline. Using an endoscope (a surgical telescope probe connected to a specialized light source and video camera) and specialized instruments, the procedure is performed while monitoring progress on a television screen.

The results of endoscopic Forehead Lifting are generally equal to those of traditional techniques. Through the chosen incision, the forehead muscles which are causing the wrinkling and frown lines are addressed and modified, and any excess skin is corrected, allowing elevation of the eyebrows to a more youthful, pleasing level.

Recovery

Antibiotics may be prescribed for several days following surgery. BHMG’s patients are usually permitted to shower and wash their hair within 24-48 hours after surgery. Sutures or staples used to close the incisions are generally removed within one week to ten days. Swelling and some bruising may occur in the forehead or upper eyelid areas, which should subside within a few weeks. Women may use eye cosmetics approximately ten days after surgery. You can proceed with your normal daily activities within 1-2 weeks.

Risks

Fortunately, significant complications from Forehead Lift are infrequent. However, potential early complications include hematoma (an accumulation of blood under the skin that may require removal), infection (rarely), and pain. Delayed complications, such as minor hair loss at the location of the incisions, numbness or itching of the scalp in the vicinity of the incisions, or poor healing of incisions may occur, but these are usually temporary and easily treatable.

Frequently-Asked Questions

Q: Why would I need a Brow Lift as opposed to Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Tuck)?

A: In many cases, the position of the brow contributes to the appearance of excess skin in the upper eyelids. A heavy brow which sags low on the forehead will make the upper eyelids look more wrinkled. Elevation of the brow to the proper level may improve the appearance of the upper eyelids without any need for surgery on the eyelids themselves.

Back to the top

Q: Can Blepharoplasty be done at the same time as Brow Lift?

A: Yes. If Brow Lift is required along with Blepharoplasty in order to achieve the best result, the two procedures can be done simultaneously. Generally, the Brow Lift is done first, and the (more conservative) upper Blepharoplasty procedure is done second, since there will be less relative excess upper eyelid skin after the Brow Lift.

Q: Will a Brow Lift make me look surprised?

A: Careful planning and execution of the Brow Lift will improve the appearance of the forehead and eyebrows, and will not result in a “surprised” look.

Back to the top

Q: Why would I not be a candidate for Endoscopic Forehead lift?

A: If you have a very high forehead or receding hairline (or if you are bald), the necessary incisions for Endoscopic forehead lift may not be able to be placed inconspicuously. Also, lifting the forehead in these circumstances may result in the hairline appearing to recede even further. In such cases, placing the incision at the frontal hairline (or rarely in a mid-forehead crease) will allow the brow to be lifted properly without displacing the hairline.

Q: When can I shampoo or have my hair colored after Brow Lift?

A: Patients are permitted to shampoo and condition the hair 24-48 hours after the Brow Lift. You may plan to visit your hair dresser for color or hair trimming when the incisions have healed completely (2-3 weeks).

Back to the top

Q: Will my hair be shaved in order to do the Brow Lift? 

A: No. With Endoscopic Brow Lift, the small incisions are placed within the hair, and no scalp or forehead skin is removed. With Coronal or frontal hairline incisions, the hair will be parted, and after the lift has been completed, the scalp will be re-approximated without any gap in the hairline.

It used to be that cosmetic surgery was for the over fifty crowd. Patients waited until they looked awful and then asked for "the works". Their results were dramatic, but, unfortunately, everyone could tell they just had surgery. Today, nearly one-third of those seeking facial rejuvenation surgery are between 35 and 50 years old.

Wrinkles and frown lines often first appear in the brow and forehead area. A forehead lift or browlift can smooth out the wrinkles and correct drooping brows and heavy lids to provide a younger, friendlier appearance. A browlift can be performed alone or with other cosmetic procedures such as a facelift, eyelid surgery, or laser skin resurfacing.

A browlift can be performed as an out-patient procedure under local anesthesia with deep sedation, or general anesthesia, and may take 1 to 2 hours. With the classical or "open" method the incision is hidden just inside or by the hairline across the scalp and between the ears. Your surgeon lessens the appearance of wrinkles by removing selected muscles and releasing tissues, which cause the wrinkles. The eyebrows may also be elevated, and excess skin at the incision will be removed to allow a gentle redraping of your forehead skin.
