Which Type of Brow Lift is Right for Me?

Aging and eyebrow sagging go hand in hand. Many people experience this, but if  you’re tired of looking tired, then a brow lift might be worth exploring. 

A brow lift can visibly turn back the hands of time on your forehead and brows; eyes will appear larger, and frown lines will be smoothed.

A brow lift is an outpatient procedure, performed using general anesthesia or intravenous sedation with local anesthesia. Patients usually experience very little pain after the procedure, but it is common to feel a sensation of tightness throughout the forehead area. Swelling and bruising typically lasts for about a week after the procedure.

A brow lift is also known as a forehead lift. This procedure raises sagging brows that can hood the upper eyelids and places them in a more youthful position. Vertical creases that appear between the eyebrows are improved as well as frown lines. Horizontal lines that develop across the forehead are reduced as well.

Coronal Lift

This procedure is  best for individuals with smaller foreheads. This lift is done with one incision made behind the brow bone from ear to ear. This is the most common type of brow lift and is also known as an open brow lift.

Temporal Lift

Also known as a “Lateral Brow Lift,” this procedure targets the outer third of the eyebrows as opposed to the entire brow section.  It involves small, less extensive incisions that yield a  faster recovery time. Duration: about 90 minutes.

Trichophytic Lift

This lift is optimal for individuals with higher hairlines. a four-centimeter incision is used to remove a fragment of forehead skin in order to raise the eyebrows and reduce wrinkles. Duration: between 2 and 2.5 hours.
