Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift will elevate the eyebrows to a more youthful position as well as eliminate deep forehead lines, crow’s-feet and sagging skin on the upper eyelid.
Most brow lifts are done with an endoscope, a surgical procedure that Dr. Lorenc pioneered more than twenty years ago and has since become the gold standard in the field. The incision is made in the hairline so that you won’t see it when fully healed. Using an endoscope allows Dr. Lorenc to make smaller incisions and use local anesthesia in lieu of general anesthesia.
“Patients come to me wanting a change, but not something that makes them look like a different person,” Lorenc says. “With the endoscopic brow lift, you get results that make you look refreshed, younger and revitalized, but you’ll still have the facial characteristics that make you you.”
This type of brow lift can tighten and lift lax skin in the upper portion of the face. While non-surgical measures such as the injectable neurotoxins Botox and Xeomin are popular and effective in erasing creases and lines, these treatments only offer a temporary fix. In addition, neurotoxin injections are limited in their ability to halt or reverse the effects of aging, specifically in skin that has lost elasticity beyond a certain point and do not result in a lifting effect.
