How Can a Brow Lift Change my Overall Facial Appearance?

Date 29 Sep 2023  

The forehead area is one of the first facial sites to show signs of skin aging. The constant movements of the forehead muscles can cause the skin to sag and lose its firmness. With aging, the eyebrows start to droop and cause the outside corners to hang down. Heredity, environmental factors, and excessive or frequent squinting can all contribute to drooping eyebrows. If there is excess drooping of the eyebrow (ptosis), the upper eyelid may get pushed further down and even begin to mask the eyes. 

Drooping eyebrows can result in an older, tired facial appearance which makes people conscious of their appearance. Thankfully, there is a brow lift surgery in Hyderabad performed by a cosmetic surgeon at Eternelle Aesthetics that can reverse the drooping of eyebrows and significantly change the overall facial appearance while also boosting one’s confidence.  

What is a brow lift?

Brow lift surgery, also known as an eyebrow lift or forehead lift in Hyderabad, is a cosmetic invasive procedure that targets fine lines and wrinkles of eyebrows. It can help remove extra, sagging skin from the forehead and help fix a scowling face. A certified plastic surgeon or a doctor having mastery in facial rejuvenation performs a brow lift. 

When to consider a brow lift?

A brow lift can be performed to address the following concerns:

  • Asymmetrical brows
  • Wrinkled and sagging skin on the brow 
  • A sagging or low brow that provides a tired, unhappy, or depressing appearance
  • Deep horizontal creases across the forehead
  • Frown lines or furrows between the brows or over the bridge of the nose
  • Extra skin or fatty tissue hanging over the eyes.

What does a brow lift surgery involve?

The procedure can be carried out using different surgical techniques that all work differently. Mostly, the surgery involves making an incision near or around the forehead or hairline to help lift the eyebrows and bring them to the middle. The surgeon will use one of two brow lift surgical approaches: a traditional forehead lift or an endoscopic forehead lift. The best surgical approach is determined based on the patient’s condition and aesthetic goal. 

Traditional Forehead Lift

The traditional lift, also known as an "open brow lift" or "coronal lift," involves making a continuous incision across the forehead from ear to ear. Through the incision, the extra skin is removed and the underlying muscles and fat tissues are adjusted, thereby lifting the eyebrows, The brow lift surgeon in Hyderabad makes a high forehead incision following the frontal hairline to achieve the desired results.

Endoscopic Forehead Lift

As the name implies, the surgeon inserts an endoscope beneath the brow skin during the procedure. An endoscope is a tube with a light source and camera. Endoscopic forehead or brow lift surgery lifts the position of the brows with minimal invasion and gives eyebrows a more defined appearance. It is also used to treat brow ptosis and glabellar frown lines caused by the procerus muscles.

Why should one think about getting a brow lift?

A brow lift may not be the first anti-aging procedure that comes to mind, but this surgery offers a plethora of aesthetic benefits, and many patients are usually really pleased with the excellent results.

Here are five reasons why one should think about getting a brow lift:

1. It can make a person look less fatigued and furious.

As people get older, they may develop lines and creases over their brows and across their forehead that make them look continuously fatigued or furious. These include having:

  • A drooping browline
  • Creases between the brows
  • Creases on the forehead.

A brow lift can help a person look happier, more relaxed, and younger by raising the eyebrows and smoothing away any unsightly lines.

2. It removes facial wrinkles.

This plastic surgery can remove any signs of aging on the upper face by lifting the brow and removing any extra skin or tissue. With eyebrow lift surgery, horizontal and vertical lines across the brows will disappear, and the skin will appear smoother and more youthful.

3. It opens up the eyes.

In a few instances, a sagging brow can have a major effect on the appearance of the upper eyelids and can have several other adverse effects, including:

  • Giving the appearance of being fatigued
  • Affecting the vision's clarity
  • Making it difficult to apply makeup

Raising the eyebrows with eyebrow lift surgery will clear eyesight and make eyes look more alert. That’s because the upper eyelid no longer hangs down and comes into the eye area. 

4. It provides noticeable and long-lasting results.

While anti-wrinkle injections and forehead fillers can be used to minimise forehead creases and produce the illusion of a higher brow line, their effectiveness is limited. They must also be repeated regularly. In contrast, a brow lift provides long-term results.

During a brow lift, the extra skin is removed and the underlying structure is modified to achieve a natural, youthful appearance. As a result, facial wrinkles, as well as sagging and drooping skin across the brow line, are permanently corrected.

5. It can be modified to meet the patient's specific needs.

The procedure of a brow lift is not one-size-fits-all. A skilled surgeon can personalise plastic surgery to each patient's specific demands and ensure safe, natural, and aesthetic surgical outcomes.

From an endoscopic (mini) brow lift to a full-lift procedure, the procedure can be personalised to match unique cosmetic goals.

Changes one might notice after having a brow lift

A brow lift will permanently change a person's facial appearance. The types of changes one makes with a brow lift will depend on the problems they are having and how they want to improve their appearance.

Here are a few examples of how a brow lift might improve the appearance:

  • Raising the brows creates a more youthful overall appearance
  • It gives the appearance of bigger, more open eyes by not allowing the drooping of the upper eyelids
  • It smoothes out the skin between the brows if frown lines have formed
  • It dramatically reduces the appearance of significant creases that have formed between the eyes, on the bridge of the nose, or the forehead.

Expected Results and Brow Lift Surgery Cost in Hyderabad

The extent of the surgery, the surgeon's experience and technique, and the individual's skin quality and recovery are all factors that influence the final result of forehead and brow lift Surgery and even its cost. Patients can often expect a more youthful, revitalised appearance with a smoother forehead and raised brows. 

The results of a Brow Lift Surgery in Hyderabad are usually long-lasting, but they are not always permanent. Signs of aging, gravity, and other factors can still cause sagging of the skin and tissues over time. Thus, there will be a need for touch-up surgeries to maintain the desired brow appearance for the long term.
