Tired appearance? Are you sometimes asked if everything is ok because of a sad or depressed expression? Sagging of the brows, often combined with aging changes of the eyelids (see blepharoplasty) can contribute to this fatigued, sad or aged appearance. Depending on a number of anatomical factors, you may be a candidate for a browlift.
Many factors are assessed when determining the need and best approach for browlifting. Typically the brow is approached from incisions placed near or behind the hairline. One primary consideration involves a patient’s hairline. If receding or somewhat high, some procedures may lower the hairline while raising the brow. Other approaches may raise the hairline a few millimeters. All of the options will be discussed with you during your consultation.
Certain muscles of the face and forehead raise the brow while others depress it. Preoperative botulinum toxin treatment is recommended two weeks prior to browlifting in order to minimize postoperative brow depression by these muscles while healing is taking place.
