Brow and Forehead Lift
A forehead lift, also called a brow lift, is the name of the procedure that corrects drooping eyebrows and/or forehead lines which are often the first signs of aging. When left unabated, drooping eyebrows can cause “hooding” of the upper lids. Patients often complain that their eyes appear to be getting smaller or deeper-set, and friends may tell them they look sad or tired – even “grumpy”. A browlift produces a more youthful and rested appearance. In addition to elevating the brow and eliminating forehead lines, a brow lift can reduce crows feet around the outer edge of the eyes.
In endoscopic surgery, Dr. Waldman makes a series of small incisions just behind the hairline and then, using an endoscope the size of a drinking straw for visualization, proceeds to remove those muscles that are the source of frown lines. The eyebrows are then lifted to reduce sagging of the skin at eyelid level. Depending on the nature of the incisions and Dr. Waldman’s preference, bandages may be applied along the incisions. The procedure usually lasts one to two hours.
