Browlift

Browlift is the procedure that corrects the shape and position of the eyebrows and in some cases the wrinkles in the forehead area.

THE surgery AND TO WHOM IT IS ADDRESSED

One of the main problematic features of facial aging, as recorded by facial analyses, is the relaxation of the frontal muscle with visible wrinkle formation and change of the arch (fall) of the superciliary (eyebrows).

This procedure aims to improve the appearance of the upper third of the face, i.e. the area from the eyebrows to the beginning of the scalp. That is, it includes primarily the front.

In recent years, due to the emergence of various non-invasive techniques applied to the area, this procedure has acquired very specific indications and is applied much less frequently. In cases of severe eyebrow fall and forehead wrinkling, however, it remains one of the most important tools in the hands of a plastic surgeon.

Many times the low position of the eyebrows is responsible for the excess skin on the upper eyelid. Incorrectly in this case, there may be an indication for upper blepharoplasty, while in fact the problem is corrected with the Browlift.

Therefore, the procedure is aimed at those who wish to correct the shape and position of the eyebrows, and wrinkles on the forehead.

Techniques

The procedure can be performed either with the open or minimally invasive method.

In the open method, a coronal incision is made in the scalp, approximately from one ear to the other. Through this incision we can release the tissues and correct the position of the eyebrows, correct the wrinkles of the forehead and the midface. In fact, wrinkles in the midriff are eliminated forever as we surgically intervene on the muscles that create them. Today one would say that the main indication of a coronal Browlift is a very high forehead with a hairline that starts far back. This becomes very pronounced for example in women who have these features and put their hair back in a braid.

This movement can lift the eyebrows and stretch the forehead (essentially to partially simulate a browlift), but it emphasizes even more the great height of the forehead and the scalp line.

In the minimally invasive method, which is the main method used today, an incision about 3 cm long is used. on the sides of the scalp on each side. Thus, through 2 incisions hidden in the hair, the eyebrows are raised to their new position.

This same procedure has become very popular in recent years and may even be referred to as “CatEyeLift” by changing the angle of the eyes.

WITH WHICH surgery IS IT COMBINED?

It is usually combined with upper blepharoplasty and rarely with lower blepharoplasty. This allows for a total rejuvenation of the periocular area.

The most common problem that occurs in these procedures is that 6 months to a year after the procedure the eyebrows come down again, resulting in the loss of part of the aesthetic effect. By using a special long-lasting absorbable mesh (GalaFLEXP4HB) we can largely solve this problem. The excellent enhancement offered by this technique(Super Charged Browlift) promises long-lasting results.

Information about the surgery
