Forehead movements are part of our face expressions that reveal our every emotion. These movements cause a temporary wrinkling of the forehead that, along with the natural fall of the brows with age, makes our face look older. As a result, permanent horizontal wrinkles appear along the forehead and vertical deep ones appear on the glabella.
Lifting the eyebrows back into the right anatomical position is of utmost importance, since this position is different for men and women. The natural position of the brows is located higher on a woman’s face than on a man’s. The fall of the brows, which makes the eyelids look heavy and tired, is also affected by fat and muscles.
These structures can be restored back to their original position through a brow lift that will eliminate the deep wrinkles of the forehead and the glabella without altering the natural appearance of your facial features. Surgical or non-surgical techniques, can be used depending on the particularities of each case. A brow lift is usually combined with a MACS lift, a Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and Lipofilling aiming at an overall facial rejuvenation.
Brief description of the procedure
This procedure is usually combined with a blepharoplasty or a facelift. The procedure usually requires general or local anesthesia, depending on the technique that is used each time. There are two main techniques that are usually preferred. The first one is the endoscopic method, while the second one requires a small inconspicuous incision over the hairline. Both techniques result in permanently restoring the eyebrows back to their original position and eliminating forehead wrinkles. Dr. Varnalidis uses many surgical and non-surgical techniques and always chooses the most appropriate one, depending on the case, in order to achieve brow symmetry without altering your face structure.
