Brow lifts, also called forehead lifts, tighten and lift your forehead, reducing horizontal forehead wrinkles that make you look older than your years.
A brow lift transforms more than your forehead. It addresses four other cosmetic concerns:
As you get older, your skin relaxes, muscles weaken, and eyebrows sag, making you look tired. Lifting your eyebrows makes a dramatic difference, opening your eyes to give you an alert, youthful appearance.
Dr. Zelken frequently enhances brow lifts with procedures that target other facial problems. You can beautifully rejuvenate your face by combining a brow lift with skin resurfacing, a facelift, or eyelid surgery.
Nearly everyone concerned about forehead aging qualifies for a brow lift. Your age doesn’t factor into the decision, but a brow lift isn’t right for everyone.
A candidate must be generally healthy and a nonsmoker (or willing to stop smoking before the brow lift). In some cases, a procedure other than a brow lift will be the better choice for your cosmetic needs.
The only way to learn if you’re a good candidate is to schedule a consultation and talk with Dr. Zelken about the changes you want to make in your appearance.
He learns about your goals and expectations, answers your questions, and lets you know if a brow lift will achieve your desired results. He also explains the procedure and starts the pre-surgery process if you decide to proceed.
During a classic brow lift, Dr. Zelken makes an incision from ear to ear, carefully placing the cut near the hairline where the scar can’t be seen. He removes excess skin and fat while tightening and lifting the underlying muscles.
Dr. Zelken also specializes in endoscopic brow lifts. This procedure uses a slim endoscope and surgical instruments designed to fit through small incisions. An endoscopic procedure tightens and lifts by changing the supporting structures under the skin but doesn’t remove any skin.
