In facial analysis, it is helpful to divide the face into various aesthetic units. The zone of the forehead and its impact on the zone involving the eyes is a very important aspect in conveying youthful beauty of the face. Certain people have overactive muscles of the forehead leading to a worried look. Some even consider these overactive muscles to be an etiology of migraine headaches.
Another aspect of this zone of the face is the loss of skin elasticity and the effects of gravity. These two factors result in the descent of the eyebrows and give the region of the upper eyelids a droopy, tired look.
Endoscopic Brow Lift is a technique that plastic surgeons may employ to release the skin and muscles as a unit off the forehead and reposition to a higher level normal in youth. Through five small incisions hidden in the hair line, an endoscopic camera and instruments can be introduced to release the forehead skin. In addition, if there are overactive muscles leading to deep furrows in the brow, they can be weakened non-invasively through the above incision to create a smoother forehead. Determining the correct vector at which the brows are re-instated to a preferred position can also have a positive impact on how the upper eyelids appear. There are situations that may require upper and or lower eyelid surgery to complete the rejuvenation process. This can be discussed on an individual basis with a complete consultation.
