Brow lifts are designed to elevate the eyebrows to a more youthful position. This “opens up” the eyes and relieves a tired or angry look. It gives one a younger look as well. In females the brow lift can “feminize” the face by giving the brow a natural curve. This procedure also allows weakening of the muscles that create the frown lines such that a permanent Botox-like effect is achieved. By elevating the brows one doesn’t wrinkle the forehead muscles as much, thus smoothing the forehead.
Dr. McClure and Dr. Jackson were the first surgeons in the North Bay to employ the newer endoscopic techniques which enabled the brow lift to be performed through 5 or 6 small incisions placed in the scalp above the hairline; a great advantage over traditional techniques which used a continuous incision across the top of the head. This operation is usually performed under local anesthesia with sedation and may be combined with other eyelid or facial procedures such as the Lite-lift™, a Face and Neck Lift, or Blepharoplasties. The operation is safe and recovery is rapid.
