- Frown lines between eyebrows
- Horizontal lines and furrows across forehead
- Sagging, drooping brows
If age is beginning to show it’s signs through lines along the forehead and eyes, consider a brow lift by Dr. Kagan. A brow lift (or forehead lift) is a surgical procedure that corrects drooping brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows on the forehead that occur over time. A brow lift gives patients a refreshed look of minimized and softened lines, smoother skin and slightly raised eyebrows.
Most often an outpatient procedure performed under local or general anesthesia, brow lifts require the muscles and tissues to be surgically removed through a hairline incision (coronal incision technique) or a less invasive endoscope (a surgical telescope).
For brow lift patients who only need a small amount of temporal brow lift, a transblepharoplasty brow lift implant may be used. This device is used to lift brows through a traditional eyelid crease incision, which avoids the potentially visible incision on the forehead used in traditional brow lifts. The implant absorbs into the body by about seven months. By this time, the body will have healed and scarred into the new, elevated position. (Note: Botox® injections may offer a non-surgical solution for less severe cases).
