The most common sign of the aging forehead is brow ptosis (brow sagging). This can begin in our thirties. As the brow sags, the youthful arch of the eyebrow begins to flatten. In addition, the falling eyebrow can lead to excess skin or “hooding” to form along the upper eyelid. The combination of drooping eyebrows, loss of the youthful arch of the brow, “hooding” and forehead wrinkles can lead to a tired or even angry appearance.
A brow lift can raise and reshape the eyebrows, lift and tighten the forehead, and soften the vertical creases between the brows. A number of different techniques can be used to lift the brows. Dr. Albert Fox specializes in a minimally invasive browlift procedure, performed through very small incisions hidden in the scalp using a small camera or endoscope.
A brow lift can be combined with other procedures such as a blepharoplasty or facelift to achieve a more youthful appearance. Dr. Fox emphasizes a natural and balanced result. A complete facial analysis and cosmetic consultation with Dr. Albert Fox can determine if you are an appropriate candidate for this procedure.
The recovery time following a brow lift is typically 7 to 10 days. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis under “twilight anesthesia” or general anesthesia if desired.
