Denver, Colorado Brow Lift
One of the earliest signs of aging is that our eyebrows start to come down. Sometimes people notice this because the eyebrows themselves are in a lower, more tired position. Often they come in to see us complaining that their friends keep asking them if they are tired or even angry, simply because their eyebrows make them look that way.
More often however, it's not the eyebrows themselves but the skin just underneath the eyebrows that is pushed down onto the upper eyelids by the eyebrows as they move downward. This gives the upper eyelids a very heavy look. In fact, for many of the people who come in to see us saying they need blepharoplasty in Denver, Colorado, brow lift surgery is actually the more appropriate choice. I use BOTOX® in Denver to subtly enhance the arch of the brow, but it cannot truly lift the brow to a more youthful position.
Your Denver Brow Lift Procedure
A brow lift, or forehead lift, is a very different procedure than it used to be. Older techniques required long incisions, often resulting in some loss of hair, permanent numbness, and occasionally created a surprised look (we have all seen these results). A brow lift can now be performed using several very small incisions that are completely hidden behind the hairline. A small, high-tech endoscope is then used to quickly, easily, and subtly shift the brow upwards, which opens the eyes in a very natural, youthful manner. If performed at the same time as a mini face lift or facelift near Denver, even smaller incisions may be used. Benefits of this approach include:
- Minimized scarring
- Improved patient comfort
- No changes to hairline
- Quicker recovery
The results following a brow lift are dramatic yet subtle, giving a more youthful, well rested, and natural appearance. In some cases, the addition of laser skin resurfacing in Denver can provide even more noticeable improvements. Patients state that their friends and family comment on how good they look, but because the appearance is so natural, they never even consider that they may have undergone cosmetic surgery.
