Brow ptosis, or drooping brows, is a common cause of problems with feelings of heaviness to the upper eyelids. During surgery the tissues of the forehead are elevated, allowing Dr. Lamperti to improve the position of the eyebrows. Several techniques are available for surgery and Dr. Lamperti can discuss the appropriate options with you during your consultation. For most people, the incision is hidden in the hairline. With this endoscopic approach, four to five small incision are used to perform the surgery.
With bringing the brows in a better position, patients often are able to relax their forehead muscles which can help with chronic headaches and reduce further skin creasing. Surgery does not totally smooth the forehead wrinkles, however. A Botox treatment better addresses this concern.
The goal of surgery is to gently lift the brows, helping to bring the excess brow skin off of the upper eyelids and create a more elegant arch to the eyebrow. Patients often express concern about not wanting to look over-done after having brow lift surgery. Dr. Lamperti is very cautious about not creating an artificial, surprised look.
Brow lift surgery is often combined with other rejuvenative procedures such as Blepharoplasty and Facelift. For less severe brow drooping, volume enhancement of the outer brow can effect a modest, yet natural, lift of the lateral brow.
