Whether due to aging or genetics, many people develop deep creases across the brow, or between the brows. In addition, the forehead skin can sag causing an overhanging brow or droopy upper lids. These make a person appear older or may make you look angry or tired, even when you have had plenty of rest. A custom brow lift can resolve all these cosmetic issues and produce a smooth brow. If you are struggling with these cosmetic problems, we invite you to find out more about our New York Plastic Surgery office and Dr. Neil Tanna – an acclaimed professional in the field of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, smooths wrinkles, lines, and creases on the forehead, upper eyelids, and brows. In this surgical procedure, an incision will be placed either at the hairline near the ears or within the scalp. Similar to a facelift procedure, the skin and underlying muscle structure is tightened to smooth lines, wrinkles, creases, and sagging skin on the upper face.
A brow lift will correct overhanging, droopy brows, deep horizontal creases across the forehead, excess skin hanging over the eyes and correct unsightly, deep, frown lines between the eyebrows.
Lines and creases on the forehead are an unfortunate part of aging. Some people are more prone to deep lines and creases on the forehead or between the brows, and this condition can be unsightly and unpleasant, giving the person an unfriendly, older look. Thankfully, the condition can be resolved with a brow lift. The procedure often proves to be a powerful improvement to overall facial appearance, with creases and lines smoothed and a drooping brow resolved.
Advances in plastic surgery have led to new ways to treat an aging brow, with a shorter recovery and less risk of scarring. Endoscopic surgery is used to reposition the skin and muscle structure of the brow to a more youthful position. Every patient is unique in the degree of sagging and creasing, and only a personal consultation will reveal the scope of the procedure needed to give you a fresher, more youthful appearance.
Dr. Tanna has a high level of artistry and talent in facial surgery and holds two specialty certifications: Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology (Head & Neck Surgery). His depth of knowledge and training is rare, whether in New York or elsewhere. He is often called upon to present new surgical techniques to other professionals in his field and serves as an Associate Professor of Plastic Surgery and the Associate Program Director of Plastic Surgery at Northwell Health.
A brow lift, when performed by a talented plastic surgeon, can make you look far younger, more vital, and more expressive. Drooping eyelids, saggy brows, and a creased forehead can all be resolved, leaving you looking fresh and alert, without appearing pulled or unnatural – when performed correctly, with the most advanced surgical techniques. Our patients report a dramatic increase in self-confidence, empowerment, and self-esteem as a result of undergoing this surgical enhancement.
