The most visible signs of aging are seen on one’s face – frown lines, low or sagging brows, forehead creases or wrinkles. In some cases, non-invasive procedures and techniques like cosmetic injections or chemical peels can help alleviate these symptoms. Most of the time, however, a brow lift is the best option, since it completely rejuvenates the facial skin by raising the eyebrows and smoothening the forehead.
Who Should Get a Brow Lift?
The best candidates for a brow lift usually experience several signs of aging, including:
- Low or drooping eyebrows
- Frown, furrow, or glabellar lines and creases
- Crow’s feet
- Asymmetric or distorted brows
Dr. Kiener routinely performs endoscopic brow lifts, a technique that involves making short, inconspicuous incisions within the hairline. An endoscope, a thin surgical video device, is inserted through the incisions. With the endoscope, Dr. Kiener can see and work on the underlying tissues and muscles that need to be altered or removed to produce a smoother and more refreshing appearance. The procedure usually takes 45 minutes and is performed under general anesthesia.
Dr. Kiener also performs mini and lateral brow lifts.
An endoscopic brow lift requires less recovery time; most patients can resume normal activities within several days following surgery. Minimal pain and swelling may be experienced, but can be easily treated with medication prescribed by Dr. Kiener.
