Different Ways to lift your Eyebrow
An eyebrow lift can be performed alone, but is often performed at the same time as a facelift. Younger adults who have a naturally low brow or who already have deep frown lines due to stress or muscle over activity may also benefit from a eyebrow lift. Eyebrow lift surgery can be performed in several different ways. One method, called a coronal eyebrow lift, involves your plastic surgeon making a cut across the top of your scalp, hidden within your hair. Through the cut, your surgeon removes excess skin, shortens the muscles that cause frown lines and lifts your eyebrows.
The changes of the forehead and eyebrow area associated with aging include the formation of deep creases across your forehead and between your eyebrows, in association with skin laxity. A brow lift helps to reverse the aging process by tightening a sagging forehead, removing and softening some creases and lifting falling eyebrows. Eyebrow lifts are commonly performed in conjunction with facelifts or eyelid surgery.
The position of the eyebrow has a major impact on facial expression. An elevated, smooth, youthful looking brow conveys a positive, uplifted state of mind. An eyebrow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is an operation to lift the level of your eyebrows to a higher position. It can also help to lift folds of skin that may hang over your eyes and smooth out frown lines between your eyebrows.
Methods of Eyebrow Lifting:-
Coronal Lift:- In Coronal lift technique, a cut is made through the scalp slightly behind the natural hairline and runs from ear to ear across the top of the head, where a headband or headset would sit. A corneal forehead lift would entail that an incision is made across the top of your head from ear to ear. After making the incision, the skin is lifted away from the underlying tissue and pulled tight, causing elevation of the eyebrows. The excess scalp tissue is trimmed away and then the incision is closed with stitches or staples. This technique is not advisable for men losing hair, or that already have a receding hairline.
Endoscopic Lift:- The technique uses a small, pencil-like camera device connected to a television monitor. The endoscope is inserted into several small, one-half inch to one inch incisions placed just behind the hairline, providing the surgeon with a clear view of the muscles and tissues beneath the skin. This technique is not recommended if you have very droopy brows or very deep creases. Excess skin will also not be removed although the brow will be lifted and your scalp will be anchored to your skull using absorbable screws.
Subcutaneous forehead lift:- This type of forehead lift is basically the same as the corneal lift, but instead of the incision being made across the top of the head, the incision is placed at your hairline. This means that although excess skin is removed, your hairline doesn't move, but you will have a surgical scar on the hairline. This technique has the benefit that your scalp may not be numb as is the case with a corneal lift but you would always have to wear your hair forward to conceal the incision scar.
