There are many techniques to lifting your eyebrows to a more natural position. The eyebrow position in a male is different than in a female, and this is a critical characteristic that should be understood. The brows should be analyzed looking at the forehead and the upper lids of your eyes. If the forehead has many wrinkles and it’s a long forehead my technique is to perform a subcutaneous pretrichial brow lift, which allows me to remove the wrinkles, and shorten your forehead to a more youthful look. I hide the scare right at the hair junction, and most of my patients a few months out do not even notice the scar.
If your forehead is short and does not have any significant wrinkles I use an endoscopic method to lifting your eyebrows. The incisions are made within the hair-bearing scalp and are not noticed. If you are having upper eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) done at the same time, I can perform your brow lift via the same incision in your eyelids. This technique is powerful since it will prevent another incision to be made, and I can lift your brow in the same operation.
My unique technique for lifting your brows will depend on the characteristics of your forehead, hairline, and upper eyelids. Many patients ask me what is one of the worst complications that could occur, and I stress to them that nerve injuries are probably the worst problem. Understanding the anatomy is key in preventing any nerve injuries. The second worst complication is premature recurrence of brow ptosis (descent), and this has to do with improper technique. I utilized suture that anchors your brows to the your forehead for long lasting results.
The eyebrow has different features along its length, meaning that the arch (peak) must be placed in a very particular location in relationship to your eyes for a natural result. The medial aspect of the brow must also be anchored with caution since nerves and vessels are located in this area. I pay particular attention to these areas to maximize the outcome, and minimize any complications.
