Aging results in drooping of the eyebrows that can crowd the eyes and make the upper eyelids appear full. Drooping brows can be remedied with a brow lift procedure to lift, shape and reposition the eyebrows. This recreates the refined, delicate brow arch that symbolizes youth and beauty.
The brow lift procedure can create very natural, subtle and beautiful results in the right hands. In many cases of eye area aging a brow lift is the only way to truly rejuvenate the eye area and remove the drooping brow that develops over time. A brow lift involves elevating the brow into a more youthful position. This has the effect of opening the eyes and reducing the heaviness and hooding of the upper eyelids. In some cases of severe aging of the eyes, a brow lift will be combined with an upper eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty to more effectively rejuvenate the eye area.
Besides being a very talented surgeon, Dr. Weber is kind. The same is also true of everyone in the Lonetree Facial and Plastic Surgery office. I would highly recommend Dr. Weber to anyone.
I had a previous chin augmentation and cheek lift procedure by a Dr. in Lakewood. That surgery was a terrible experience. The chin implant was misplaced, and my cheeks initially had huge swollen ridges on top, and my midface looked very hollow. No amount of makeup can hide a botched surgery. I waited for years to have the results corrected, and to be honest, I was afraid to trust another surgeon. I was very lucky to have found Dr. Weber. Dr. Weber had treated me with Radiesse as a temporary fix to the cheek area. The Radiesse helped a lot to minimize my hollow cheeks. I was very impressed with Dr. Weber, and finally decided to go ahead and have him do a permanent fix. I had a cheek augmentation, had the chin implant replaced, and had an upper blepharoplasty. The recovery was quick. I was out and about after 7 days. I am more than thrilled with the results! The overall improvement in my appearance is dramatic. Yet the results are very natural looking. Several coworkers mentioned that I looked rested, and my best friend commented that my hair looked great (my hair hasn’t changed). My cheeks and chin look good now, and my eyes no longer look tired.
There are multiple, highly effective approaches to performing a brow lift (endoscopic brow lift, tricophytic/ hairline approach, coronal approach and direct or mid-forehead). The ideal approach depends upon the severity of brow and eyelid aging as well as the hairline position. A critical part of every brow lift or blepharoplasty consultation is to determine how much eyelid aging results from brow droop vs. heavy eyelids. This is an important distinction as the optimal result, in some cases, can involve either a brow lift or blepharoplasty or a combined procedure to both lift the sagging brow as well as remove excess upper eyelid tissue.
Brow lift can address:
- Lift the drooping eyebrow
- Remove “hooding” of the outer part of the upper eyelid
- Recreate the subtle, arched eyebrow synonymous with youth and beauty
- Reduce or remove frown lines
- “Open” the eyes
- Lower the hairline
