The main results of
aging include lines and wrinkles between the eyes and across the forehead. Skin and soft tissues lose their elastic properties and because of that the distance between the eyelashes and the eyebrows becomes shorter. The result of this process is disgruntled, tired and aged look of a person, mainly because of the deep creases and low eyebrows. This problem can be solved by folding skin that usually forms between the eyelid and eyebrow in the corner area of the eye.

There are three main surgical methods that are used for brow lift. The surgeon can hide the incision by using any of these methods.

Coronal Brow Lift

The first step is to make an incision in the hairline through the top area of the head from one ear to another. The surgeon uses this procedure to lift the forehead into a brand new position. This way the scalp in the front area overlaps the scalp that is behind it. The scalp that is overlapping is removed by the surgeon. The remaining scalp is sewn together. In order to avoid the horizontal forehead lines, some of the forehead muscles need to be weakened.
Therefore, this procedure is commonly followed by a feeling of temporary numbness or itching in the top area of the head.

Endoscopic Brow Lift
Endoscope has a small camera mounted at its end and this helps the surgeon to make 4 to 6 small incisions and behind the hairline area and then move the skin on the head back. Some of the surgeons use small screws that are put into the skull bone to support the skin until it completely heals. Stitches can also be used along with the screws to fix the skin in its new position.
Hairline Brow Lift
If a person has a hairline that is receding, it is necessary to do the hairline brow lift. In this case, an incision is made between the beginning of the hairline and the top of the forehead. The skin is removed but the hairline is not pulled during the procedure. Horizontal creases can be significantly improved by using this method. During the healing process, a scar can be seen near the hairline. Those people who wear bang benefit the most from this procedure.
