A browlift reduces the wrinkles in the forehead and returns the eyebrows to a more youthful position, giving a fresher, more relaxed appearance. It can also decrease the appearance of extra upper eyelid skin. As well as reducing the wrinkles on the forehead and lifting sagging eyebrows, it is also possible to permanently modify some of the muscles that form creases between the eyebrows (glabella) and crows feet, producing a more permanent solution to these lines, similar to the effect of antiwrinkle treatment injections.
Browlifts can be performed through an incision within the hairline, or with an endoscope, making the procedure possible through much smaller incisions.Dr Cope uses small incisions decreases a number of problems inherent with the older procedure, such as scarring, numbness of the scalp, and hair loss around the incision.
Browlift is performed under general anaesthetic as a day surgery or overnight stay procedure. After the surgery there is some bruising and swelling, *that usually takes 7-10 days to resolve, with *most patients returning to work after 10 days.
If you are not ready for surgery then some improvement of the eyebrow area can be obtained from Thermage skin tightening, with no downtime.
