Drooped eyebrows add a sense of an angry expression to a persons face – an Eyebrow lift is an operation to fix the drooping of the eyebrow and reshape the eyebrows to better suit the patients face structure. After the eyebrow lift, wrinkles around the eye will be improved which will give a tighter and younger looking appearance.
How is the operation performed?
After local anesthesia application to the area, an incisions on the hair line will be made. The nerves and tissue that hold the eyebrows will be pulled up to the hair line. If necessary, extra skin on the forehead will be removed. Once the procedure is complete, skin will be perfected and stitched. Eyebrow lift surgery is highly effective and generally permanent.
Patients must refrain from taking blood thinning medication including Aspirin. If the patient experiences extreme watering and/or dryness in the eye, they must seek advice from their doctor.
If there isn’t extreme drooping on the eyebrows, it can also be lifted with the use of Botox, which generally last approximately 6 months. (results vary for every patient)
