Brow Lift Surgery
Raising eyebrows is a procedure whose execution can provide a lot of positive experience. It is one of the shortest procedures and can be performed with several techniques. The most typical way of performing this type of treatment is to make the incision in the temporal region, in the scalp and prepare the skin deep under the galea up to the edge of the eye socket, then release the ligament temporal, which allows increasing the lateral part of the eyebrow upward and further lining the bottom of the skin above the eyebrows to the periosteum to make the outcome more reliable. Finally the skin is being stretched and shorten to be sewed together in the place of the original incision.
Another operational technique is to prepare the skin over the gallea- in this case we avoid the risk of damage to the frontal branch of the facial nerve. Alternate method is to perform the same incision as to the upper eyelid surgery, skin preparation 1 cm above the upper edge of the orbit, then placing several stitches on a brow level and stitching them over the edge of the eye socket.
The wonderful outcome of the brow lift surgery is long lasting and contributes to raising the attractiveness of facial appearance. Improved in appearance can make us feel more self-confident, more open, and without age complex, which often gives a new, optimistic look to the future.
This treatment is often suggested to those who do not yet qualify for the correction of the upper eyelid. The effect of open eyes and obtaining more expressive face cause that person can be perceived as strong and vital..
