WHAT IS A BROW LIFT?
The aging of the face implies that skin structures of the face fall, including eyebrows, especially along their lateral section.
A brow lift or the raising of the eyebrows, allows us to aesthetically reposition them between 2 and 3 mm above the orbital rim along its lateral portion.
TECHNIQUES FOR CONDUCTING A BROW LIFT
There are several techniques for carrying it out:
- By direct attachment during a blepharoplasty operation, be it with sutures or external fixing elements, like… Allows a very slight lift, mainly as a way of stabilizing them
- Skin resection. An ellipse of skin directly above the eyebrow is surgically removed. The disadvantage is that it leaves a scar
- Via temporal incisions. An incision about 4 cm long is made behind hairline in the temporal region, through which the whole eyebrow and the periorbital region are dissected. It enables a greater lift and the rejuvenation of this entire area
- Through an endoscopic frontal lift. By means of several small incisions in the scalp, this technique enables, among other operations, the lifting of the eyebrows
WHAT COMPLICATIONS ARE INVOLVED IN A BROW LIFT?
The complications are the same as those of any surgical operation: infection, bruising or dehiscence of the wound.
One must be very meticulous when making the attachment to avoid the asymmetries in the positioning of the eyebrows.
