BROW LIFT / BROW REPOSITIONING


Dr. Lattman is an expert at helping patients who want to improve the appearance of their upper eyelids and eyebrow region. She expertly guides her patients through the process of identifying what areas of the face bother them and finding the best surgical options to meet their goals. Often, heavy upper eyelids can be corrected with an upper eyelid blepharoplasty. But in some patients, a low brow also contributes to the hooded and heavy appearance of the upper eyelids. Dr. Lattman uses the endoscopic brow lift to treat droopy eyebrows, and heavy upper lids in patients with low brows.

As we age, the brow and forehead begins to drop. Sun exposure, gravity and facial expressions all lead to frown lines, wrinkles across the forehead, and increased heaviness of the eyebrows and upper eyelids. These changes contribute to a tired, angry or sad expression that often does not reflect the way you feel. Dr. Lattman takes great care to evaluate the brow, and to reposition it in a natural position, so that the results are completely natural and not overdone.

SURGICAL APPROACH


Dr. Lattman performs brow lifts with minimal incisions hidden in the hair using surgical telescopes known as endoscopes. This state-of-the-art method provides a  natural appearance, minimal incisions, and a quicker recovery.

A brow lift is often performed along with other cosmetic surgery procedures to achieve a balanced and natural look. For instance, Dr. Lattman routinely combines an endoscopic brow lift with blepharoplasty, and laser skin resurfacing.

WHAT TO EXPECT


The endoscopic brow lift is done at Dr. Lattman’s surgical facility.  After you arrive at the facility, Dr. Lattman will mark her incisions and answer any last minute questions. The surgery takes about 40 minutes and can be done either with light sedation or general anesthesia.  You will have a small pressure bandage around your forehead which is removed the next morning.  The beauty of the endoscopic approach, is that all the incisions are hidden behind the hairline.  So there are no visible signs of surgery on your face.  Most patients go back to normal activities in a few days.  Heavy lifting and exercise can be started after 2 weeks.


Frequently Aksed Questions?

A: The best candidates for brow lifts, are men and women whose brows have fallen over time.  You can experiment yourself by first completely relaxing your forehead muscles, and then placing a finger on the inner and outer corner of the brow and gently lifting up.  If your brow moves up easily, and it alleviates excess skin on your upper eyelid, then you are likely a good candidate.  I can also manually show you where the brow will be positioned after surgery during our consultation in the office

A: You will have some bruising and swelling, but this should be minimal.  The average patient takes a few days off from work.  You will wear a pressure dressing around your forehead for one night. Most people have minimal pain for a day or two.

A: The average age is around fifty.  However there is a great range in age from 30’s to the 80’s.  The trend in cosmetic surgery is to start earlier and make small improvements.  This way the changes are less noticeable and the healing time is quicker.  So over the years I have definitely seen patients starting having brow lifts at a younger age.

When to undergo surgery is a personal decision, however, many patients do not realize how much their eyebrows droop because it happens gradually.  The body then compensates for the droopiness by holding the eyebrows up using the forehead muscles, resulting in raised eyebrows and forehead wrinkles.  In some cases this can result in headaches and fatigue by the end of the day.

A: Looking young and healthy is important for a personal sense of well being. In our society today, one’s appearance can be essential both professionally and socially. The eyebrows and forehead are distinct features of the face. When aesthetically pleasing, they can convey a sense of restfulness, attractiveness and health. However, with drooping of the eyebrows and contraction of the forehead muscle, the upper face may appear sad, tired, or angry. Furthermore, a sagging forehead can create heavy upper eyelids, browache and functional eyelid problems.

Before undertaking forehead rejuvenation, a careful evaluation of brow position and contour, forehead wrinkles, hairline and upper eyelids is essential. After physical examination and thorough discussion of the your goals and expectations, the appropriate procedure can be undertaken.

The technique I use for a Brow Lift is the endoscopic approach. The endoscope is placed below the skin through a small incision hidden behind the hairline, and then tunneled down to the brows. Using the endoscope, I can lift the entire forehead is and secure it in its new position. The main advantages of the endoscopic technique are smaller incisions which are easily hidden even in thinning hair and a quick recovery time.

Anyone, regardless of age can be a candidate for cosmetic upper face rejuvenation. The main goal of cosmetic surgery is to enhance appearance, and sometimes correct a functional problem. The decision to undergo the procedure is purely a personal one.

When to undergo surgery is also a personal decision, however, many patients do not realize how much their eyebrows droop because it happens gradually. The body then compensates for the droopiness by holding the eyebrows up using the forehead muscles, resulting in raised eyebrows and forehead wrinkles.
