What is Brow Lift?
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.
A brow lift restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes, which is often one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Also called a forehead lift procedure is performed by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Fatih Irmak to correct drooping brows and reduce the horizontal lines and furrows that often appear in the forehead. During a brow lift, the muscles and tissues that cause the drooping or furrowing are removed or altered in order to smooth the forehead, raise the eyebrows, and minimize lines.
As our eyebrows begin to droop, it can lead to obstructed vision and make us look tired, angry, unhappy, or depressed. Many factors contribute to sagging brows and wrinkles, including aging, genetics, lifestyle, and gravity.
