A brow lift is a cosmetic procedure to raise the eyebrows. It is also known as a forehead lift. A brow lift not only improves brows and the forehead, but also the upper eyelids By raising the forehead and eyebrows, the skin of the upper eyelids is pulled upwards, sometimes making an eyelid reduction(blepharoplasty) unnecessary.
The brow lifts the skin and muscle at the level of the frontal bone and fixed at a higher level. This is usually carried out endoscopically, which is a minimally invasive technique via tiny incisions behind the hairline. The muscles that cause horizontal wrinkles and furrows are weakened by detaching them above the eyebrow reducing their power and effect. This creates a softer overall look that is more aesthetically pleasing.
