Perhaps you’ve noticed as you’ve gotten older than your expression perpetually makes you seem older, more tired, or just plain angry regardless of how you feel. As we age, facial skin produces less and less collagen and elastin, which contributes to drooping eyebrows and forehead wrinkles. Additionally, the eyebrow muscles can begin to weaken or be stretched over time, resulting in a heavy looking brow.
Fortunately, it is possible to reduce droopy eyebrows with a surgical procedure known as an eyebrow lift or a forehead lift. There are a variety of techniques used to achieve a refreshed, youthful brow, but it is crucial to work with a board-certified oculoplastic surgeon with extensive experience in performing the procedures. Dr. Mehryar (Ray) Taban is renowned for his exceptional skill with brow lifts. Schedule a consultation at TabanMD in Los Angeles to learn more.
Surgery for Reducing Droopy Eyebrows
Drooping, heavy eyebrows can be successfully corrected with a number of different procedures. Depending on the person and his or her desired results, Dr. Taban may perform one of the following procedures:
Direct Brow Lift
One method for reducing droopy eyebrows involves making incisions directly above the eyebrows and removing an ellipses or sliver of skin. When the incision is sutured, the eyebrows are lifted for a subtle yet, refreshed effect. This procedure is ideal for those with thick eyebrows or have suffered significant muscle weakness.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
For patients who want a more dramatic eyebrow lift, as well as to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles along the forehead, an endoscopic brow lift is ideal. The procedure is minimally-invasive and requires less recovery time than traditional brow lifts. The procedure involves only five small incisions in the scalp along the hairline. The skin of the forehead and brows is loosened and adjusted before it is secured in an aesthetically pleasing position.
Pretrichial Brow Lift
A pretrichial brow lift can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, as well as adjust the position of the eyebrows. The procedure involves surgically removing an ellipse or sliver of tissue along the hairline and lifting the forehead and brows. The operation is not recommended for men with a receding hairline or for those who are concerned about deep forehead wrinkles.
Often combined with eyelid lifting procedures, such as a blepharoplasty, a brow plexy is performed through incisions in the upper eyelids. The minimally-invasive option helps stabilize the brow muscles and tissue with a suture suspension connected to the underlying brow bone. The final result is often subtle, but effective.
