A brow lift in Palo Alto can help you achieve a brighter, more open, approachable, and rejuvenated face. You may have inherited heavy brows, or have dreamed of erasing creases crossing your forehead, deeply etched frown lines, or lifting your eyebrows if they have drifted downward with time.
What are the Types of Brow Lifts?
Endoscopic brow lift
For many patients, the procedure can be performed endoscopically – which allows for smaller incisions, and, therefore a faster recovery. An endoscope is inserted through a short incision within the hairline. Your surgeon can view the muscles, tissue, and fat on a monitor, reposition or remove tissue, or re-anchor the tissues higher on the forehead structure. This technique offers reduced recovery time and minimal surgical scarring.
For other patients, it may be necessary to be more comprehensive in the surgical approach, with a classic brow lift, referred to as a temporal brow lift or open brow lift. This procedure corrects an overly high forehead when the incision is placed along the hairline. In other cases, the incision is placed within the hairline. Excess skin is removed, and the forehead is lifted to the ideal position.
Limited incision brow lift
This approach combines endoscopic and traditional surgical techniques. It may be appropriate for those who want to smooth a portion of their forehead creases while lifting a portion of their brows.
