Brow lifts and how they’re done
Brow lifts have been performed since 1910. These days, surgeons don’t just cut out a slice of the scalp and lift the skin on the brow straight up to close the wound. Instead, skin is lifted up and to the sides, reversing the usual aging pattern in which time and muscle activity force skin to migrate down and to the center.
A brow lift is sometimes combined with other forms of cosmetic surgery to create a younger look. If the skin of the brow has sagged into the space of the upper eyelid, the procedure can fix this. Slightly different procedures can be used for men and women to maintain the masculinity or femininity of the face, if the patient wishes. There’s also the eyebrow lift, which helps the recipient look not just younger, but more awake, cheerful and energetic.
The key to the modern brow lift is a device called an endoscope, which has a tiny light and camera at the end of a flexible tube. The surgeon uses this to study the attachment of skin and muscle directly and decide how to perform the operation.
