Brow Lift in Danville
Indications for a brow (forehead) lift include visible signs of aging, such as deep forehead creases, hooding over the eyes, drooping eyebrows and frown lines above the nose and between the brows. The procedure involves mobilizing and redraping the skin to smooth the forehead, lifting the eyebrows and upper eyelids and minimize frown lines. The brow lift is performed through small incisions in the hair above the forehead. The muscles between the eyebrows are partially removed, improving the frown wrinkles. The overall eye appearance, especially the lateral part of the eyelids where the heavy brow is most visible, is improved with elevation of the brows. It is critical to consider the brow whenever evaluating the upper lid area. The browlift is frequently combined with other facial procedures, especially upper and lower blepharoplasty and facelift.
If a patient has some brow ptosis or drooping but not enough to warrant a browlift, he or she may be a candidate for the Titan procedure. The Titan is a laser procedure designed to heat the deepest layer of the skin which causes skin tightening. It will not be as dramatic as surgery but is a nice alternative for someone with more modest drooping.
