As you grow older, your eyebrows might shift from their original position, causing your skin to sag around the eyes. That makes you appear older than your age and lowers your self-confidence. At Rostami OPC, the highly-skilled and experienced plastic surgeons Soheila Rostami, MD, and Maryam Nazemzadeh, MD, provide surgical, minimally invasive, and nonsurgical Reston brow lift treatments to enhance the appearance of your eyebrows and your overall look.
Who requires a brow lift?
Aligning your eyebrows is very crucial in the functioning of your eyelid. The normal position of eyebrows for men is at the orbital rim (outer part of the eye socket), and for women, it is slightly above the orbital rim.
Rostami OPC performs brow lifts to address:
- Heavy eyebrows
- Droopy eyebrows
- Eyebrow ptosis (sagging forehead skin or eyebrow)
It is not rare to find people blaming their sagging eyelids on their eyelid skin, but the sagging might be a result of changes in the positioning of your forehead and eyebrows. Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery) cannot fix sagging eyelids caused by eyebrow ptosis. If you have droopy eyebrows, it increases the skin on your upper eyelids and develops skin folds across the junction of your nose, as well as wrinkles around your brow.
What are the brow lift techniques available?
Rostami OPC has highly qualified and experienced facial plastic surgeons who can use various brow lift techniques to enhance the positioning of your brows and restore a younger-looking appearance. They offer minimally invasive, surgical, and nonsurgical options. Some of these methods include:
Endotine transbleph procedure
With this procedure, the experienced providers at Rostami OPC utilize a small implant to restore the positioning of your brow.
Trichophytic brow lift
During this procedure, your surgeon will make tiny incisions around the side of your hairline to tighten your eyebrow. Sometimes the provider might need to make another incision in the center of your forehead or even on the side.
Direct brow lift
During this procedure, your surgeon will make small cuts in the wrinkle line on your forehead to hide the scar from your incision and lifts your eyebrow line into a younger-looking position.
With this technique, small cuts are made in your hairline and forehead, and your skin is lifted and straightened. The procedure best works for individuals with heavy eyebrows.
Minimally invasive and non-surgical techniques for brow lift might include nonsurgical facelift, dermal fillers, and Botox.
How to determine the right type of brow lift for you
The providers at Rostami OPC understand that every person has their unique needs. Before they make any brow lift suggestions, the doctors conduct a comprehensive discussion with you. They will ask you questions about your goals and concerns and closely assess the structure of your brow and skin.
After discussing different treatment options and results, you and your provider will decide the brow technique that will deliver the best outcome based on your desires and needs.
