A brow lift is a term that refers to lifting a sagging brow. The brow encompasses not only the hairy eyebrow itself but also the soft tissue complex that blends confluently with the upper eyelid. Dr. Lam believes that eyebrow lifts are over performed today to a large extent and prefers fat grafting to support and augment this region rather than traditional methods.
In the old days, eyebrow lift surgery meant a long incision that went from ear to ear across the scalp. Brow lift patients experienced a prolonged convalescence that included oftentimes a year or more of numbness that could last indefinitely. Loss of hair and scarring could arise along the lengthy incision. Endoscopic surgery has provided a natural method of lifting the brow with only a few, short incisions. The brow has become recognized as a critical aspect to overall facial rejuvenation. Oftentimes, the tired expression that one exhibits is a result of a descended brow rather than excess eyelid skin or fat. Accordingly, cosmetic eyelid surgery alone for a tired expression may not always be the right option.
Now that brow lift surgery has reached a very advanced state, the brow can be restored in a natural and pleasing way without notable downtime. In most cases today however Dr. Lam believes that a browlift is simply not necessary as fat grafting to restore the lost convexity of the brow can accomplish a result oftentimes much better than a traditional browlifting procedure. Discussing these options with Dr. Lam during a consultation will provide a better understanding of whether a browlift would be an appropriate recommendation for you.
