Often overlooked by patients, the position of the eyebrows is an extremely important part of the facial appearance. Over time, the brows tend to drop, and this can create a tired look. This can also affected the eyelids by causing the upper eyelids to hang over the eyelashes or cause “hooding” of excess eyelid skin. While many patients think that eyelid surgery is the solution to their problems, a brow lift may also be needed to support the brows.
Many patients are afraid of a brow lift as they are worried that they will look surprised or strange. As facial aesthetic experts, Dr. Richardson and Dr. Cain specialize in creating natural, youthful results as seen in the before and after gallery.
Brow lifts can be performed several different ways. In addition to open surgical techniques, Dr. Richardson and Dr. Cain are experts in endoscopic brow lifting. This procedure is performed using several very small incisions that are hidden within the hair. Using small endoscopes, the brow is then brought into a more youthful position. In some patients, an endoscopic brow lift may not be indicated or desired, and in these patients, other techniques, such as a coronal or trichophytic brow lift may be used.
The doctors will help you decide which technique may be best for your individual concerns and overall facial anatomy during your consultation.
