Brow (Forehead) Lift

A brow lift, also called a forehead lift, surgically corrects drooping eyebrows and softens worried or angry expressions resulting from frown lines between the brows.

What is Brow Ptosis?

In general, aging around the eyes is exhibited in two areas: the eyelids and the eyebrows. The eyelid and the brow work together and their shape and location can have a big effect on the mood that you convey—regardless of how you actually feel.

Have you ever been asked if you feel tired or angry, when in fact you feel great? If so, it might be the case that your brows have fallen over time. The low position can give you that tired or angry look—a condition called Brow Ptosis. As the brow descends, it creates excess skin over the eyelid, making your eyes look puffy and older.

Endotine Forehead Implant

Endotine Forehead Implant with Five Tines

An Endotine brow lift uses an Endotine Forehead implant that gives surgeons the ability to lift tissue from small incisions along your hairline, which raises the brows to a natural position and softens creases between the eyebrows and along the forehead.

This procedure typically takes between one and two hours and is usually performed in the surgeon's office-based facility or an outpatient surgery center under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.

The best way to determine if an Endotine brow lift is right for you is by a thorough consultation with your plastic surgeon.

Direct Brow Lift

and Upper Eyelid Renewal

As your face ages, the brow can begin to droop or fall. As the brow descends, excess eyelid tissue gathers in folds above the lid, making your eyes look puffy and older. A procedure called a “blepharoplasty” removes the excess skin, and a different procedure called a “brow lift” corrects the sagging brow.

If you’re diagnosed with Brow Ptosis (a condition that creates fallen brows and excess skin over the eyelid), you may want to consider procedures that address both the brow and the excess skin of the eyelid.

Endotine Transbleph Implant

Endotine Transbleph Implant with Three Tines

An Endotine direct brow lift uses the Endotine Transbleph implant which enables your surgeon to combine both procedures through the same small incision hidden in a fold of your eyelid skin. Now you can simultaneously elevate and shape your eyebrow (a direct brow lift) and, if necessary, remove excess eyelid tissue (blepharoplasty) using the same incision.

The Endotine Transbleph direct brow lift procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia with conscious sedation and can be completed in about 30 minutes. In most situations, it is done in conjunction with conventional blepharoplasty surgery.

Are you a qualifying candidate?

The direct brow procedure may not be for those with:

  • Moderate to severe Brow Ptosis that requires more than 4mm of brow elevation to correct
  • Excessive skin laxity
  • Excessive or deep horizontal rhytids (wrinkles) on your forehead
  • Brows that require both medial and lateral elevation to correct your Brow Ptosis

Patients with any of these factors may need an endoscopic (or open) brow lift.

The best way to determine if an Endotine direct brow lift is right for you is by a thorough consultation with your plastic surgeon.
