Boulder Plastic Surgery Offers Brow Lift Procedures
For Boulder, CO residents looking to tighten sagging brow muscles and enjoy a firmer, more youthful-looking face, a brow lift procedure may be just what the doctor ordered. Brow lifts are designed to diminish the effects of aging and environmental wear and tear on the face, restoring a fresh look to the skin around the eyes and forehead. The expert surgeons at Boulder Plastic Surgery are skilled in brow lifts, and our helpful staff would love to provide you with more information about this common procedure.
How Brow Lifts Work
When skin around the eyebrows and forehead begins to sag, it is due to weakened facial muscles and overstretched skin. A simple facial rejuvenation procedure called a brow lift can correct wrinkles and restore skin to its youthful firmness.
- First, a surgeon makes incisions above the hairline and removes excess tissue from the forehead and brow area.
- When the excess tissue is removed, the skin on the upper third of the face regains the appearance it had before the effects of aging took place.
- After the excess tissue is removed, the incisions are closed and left to heal.
- In about a week, the incisions are healed, and because of their placement above the hairline, there is minimal scarring.
- The reenergizing effects of a brow lift will last 5 to 10 years.
Endoscopic Technology Makes Brow Lifts Easier
It used to be that all brow lifts were done using a classic method, performed by making one long incision above the hairline, usually going from ear to ear. While this method is perfectly adequate and still used occasionally, the surgeons at Boulder Plastic Surgery prefer to use a high-tech, endoscopic method when performing brow lifts.
The endoscopic method utilizes a small camera, which is inserted under the facial tissue for the length of the procedure and gives the surgeon better visibility to perform the work. Endoscopic brow lifts are less invasive than their classic predecessors, and patients benefit from less scarring and shorter recovery periods.
