INTRODUCTION

This article will answer the 13 BEST SURGICAL & NON-SURGICAL BROW LIFT FAQS (2022) you will want answers to before deciding on the pluses and minuses of Surgical & Non-Surgical Brow Lifts, and why your trusted provider should be Sandia Skin + Face.

We want you to be confident when using any Sandia Skin + Face Service or Product. Please keep reading to build your knowledge base and make an informed decision on your next steps.

As we age, we get horizontal wrinkles across our forehead from the frequent raising of our brows to reduce the fold above our eyes that can affect our peripheral vision.

A surgical brow lift is a cosmetic procedure that repositions your forehead to correct creases, frown lines, and sagging eyebrows.

The wrinkles may return with time, but they’ll never be as wide or deep as they were before the surgery.

At Sandia Skin + Face, we speak with you to understand your goals and work with you to tailor a personal treatment plan to meet your goals. Please ask us all your questions. Education on our treatments is a crucial focus we provide to our clients.

Botox Injections
One of the most recommended non-surgical brow lift options is Botox (botulinum toxin type A). Botox injections can weaken the muscle that makes the eyebrows drag downwards and prevent and reduce sagging.

Botox is a class of cosmetic injections called neuromodulators that smooth fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing underlying muscles. Botox works particularly well for glabellar frown lines, which are the deep wrinkles that can form between your eyebrows.

Botox results are quick compared to dermal fillers. However, to maintain your results, you’ll also need to get touch-up injections every 4 to 6 months. Side effects from Botox may include headaches, numbness, and difficulty swallowing.

Injectable Fillers
Another option is getting injectable fillers (Juvederm, Bellafill, Restylane, Radiesse, and Sculptra). Dermal fillers are injectables that use skin-plumping solutions that fill in wrinkles.

The filler method reduces saggy skin and improves the natural proportion of the brow. These filler injections are minimally invasive and safe in many types of skin. You can even go back to work on the day after the surgery.

The Dermal Filler treatment method takes minutes, and no downtime is required. You may experience mild side effects, such as redness. You’ll need additional injections in the future to maintain your results.

PRP Brow Lift
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) for wrinkle reduction is a conjunctive option. We may use alone PRP to improve the appearance of the brow when there is not a significant amount of sagging and hooding. PRP is sometimes effective because of its ability to rejuvenate the underlying tissues, effectively plumping them up so that the skin appears fuller and more youthful.

We may use PRP with microneedling, laser treatments, Botox, and dermal fillers.

Radio-frequency Brow Lift
The Ultherapy Brow Lift works to lift the top eyelid using advanced and completely non-invasive ultrasound (radio-frequency) technology. This restorative technology smoothes forehead wrinkles while lifting and tightening sagging skin on the forehead and upper eyelids. Radio-frequency emissions help stimulate collagen production, equipping your skin with the ability to reduce wrinkles from the inside out.

Radio-frequency treatment can take 1-2 hours, which is longer than injectable materials. Results are visible within a few days of treatment.

Laser Brow Lift
A Laser Brow Lift can smooth out the wrinkles and correct drooping brows or heavy lids, providing a younger, friendlier appearance. Compared to traditional facelifts, a Laser Brow Lift is a less invasive operation, with fewer complications and faster recovery.

Laser therapy treats wrinkles via ablative lasers to remove upper layers of your skin. New, smoother skin cells will grow back in place of the old ones.

Ideal Candidates
We intend nonsurgical blepharoplasty for people who’ve already tried over-the-counter wrinkle treatments and haven’t achieved their desired results.

Some candidates may combine surgery with non-surgical brow lift treatments for maximum results. It’s important to discuss all options with your provider, as well as any potential risks.

We intend these treatments for candidates 18 and older. Pregnant or nursing women should avoid these treatments. Limited physical activity for a few days following your treatment is common so you can allow the full results to take effect.

Our brows fall because of an involuntary muscle pull that often creates the “11’s” between the brows and genetic factors and gravity pulling the brow down.

A Surgical Blepharoplasty procedure reduces the fold above the eye by reducing fat pockets and excess skin. The overweight eye bags come forward as the skin loses elasticity and ages.

A Surgical Brow Lift raises the brow to further mitigate the fold above the eyes.

A Non-surgical Brow Lift, completed using Botox injections or Dermal Fillers (Juvederm), will last several months.

Between Botox and Fillers, the Dermal Filler (Juvederm) treatment will typically last for 18 months.

Considering the speed and simplicity of the initial procedure, we can regard this as an excellent return on your investment.

One procedure is no better than the other; instead, they complement each other.

Many patients desire the entire fold above the eye to be gone with a blepharoplasty (reducing the skin above and eye).

However, a low brow position is often causing 50% of the fold. One must raise the brow first; otherwise, removing the entire fold would lower the brows!

Combining a brow lift with a blepharoplasty can optimally reduce the lid fold with a natural refreshed, keeping your face in its natural proportions.

Our eyebrows primarily have two muscles, and they operate by one muscle pulling the eyebrows upward and the other muscle pulling the lower eyelid downwards.

One of the most common non-surgical brow lift options is Botox. The non-surgical Brow Lift treatment works by relaxing the muscles underlying the skin using Botox injections.

The Dermal Filler (Juvederm) treatment works by removing the wrinkles by filling in the creases with the dermal filler material.

Brow Lift Surgery typically takes about one to two hours.

A Surgical Brow Lift typically occurs in a hospital or an outpatient surgical facility. At Sandia Skin and Face, we perform this procedure in our office under general anesthesia.

During a surgical brow lift procedure, you’ll normally be comfortable with the aid of a general anesthetic — which renders you unconscious.

Yes! There are four (4) primary types of surgical brow lift procedures.

Transfollicular Brow Lift (Mini Brow Lift)
Dr. Tuggles’ preferred method of Surgical Brow Lift is “transfollicular” because his procedure hides the scar within the hairline.

The basis of the Transfollicular (or trichophytic) technique is a precision incision that allows the hair follicles to regrow through the scar. Transfollicular method result is an incision scar that is barely noticeable. The diagram illustrates how the hair follicles grow through the precision incision.

Endoscopic Brow Lift
Your surgeon will make several small incisions behind your hairline. They will then insert a long thin tube with a light, and a tiny camera mounted on its end (endoscope) through one incision to view your underlying muscles and tissues.

Using an instrument inserted through a second incision, the surgeon will lift your forehead tissues and anchor them in place with sutures, small screws or another technique. Your incisions are then closed with stitches or small clips.

Coronal Brow Lift
Your surgeon will make an incision behind your hairline from ear to ear across the top of your head. They will lift your forehead into its new position, with the scalp in front of the incision overlapping the scalp behind it.

They remove the overlapping scalp, and they sew together the remaining scalp. We rarely do this technique in people who have high hairlines, thin hair or who are likely to lose their hair.

Hairline Brow Lift
Your surgeon will make an incision between the top of your forehead and the beginning of your hairline. He or she will remove a small amount of skin and tissue from the top of your forehead, rather than your scalp. This results in your hairline not being pulled back.

Often used is a hairline brow lift with patients with a high receding hairline. However, depending upon healing, a scar might be visible along the hairline.

A surgical Brow Lift poses various risks, including:

  • Scarring might be visible after a surgical brow lift.
  • A surgical Brow Lift can cause temporary or permanent numbness on the forehead or top of the scalp.
  • A surgical Brow Lift can cause asymmetry, with one or both of the eyebrows appearing too high. However, asymmetry may even out during the healing process. We can treat persistent brow shape or position problems through additional surgery.
  • A surgical Brow Lift can cause a high hairline or hair loss at the incision site. If hair loss doesn’t resolve independently, it can be an option to perform scar excision or hair grafting (we do neither).
