is one of the most commonly performed surgeries to improve saggy eyelids and eyebrows. In KOREA and the US, it remains as a cornerstone treatment for women in their 50s and beyond. The treatment is known as endoscopic browlift.
But do you know, brows can be lifted non-surgically too?
Here are some ways to enhance results. For completeness sake,
we will discuss both non surgical and surgical options.
- Chemical browlift – Combination of dermal fillers and anti wrinkle treatment.
- Energy lift – Combination of Laser and HIFU to stimulate neocollagenesis and firm and tighten skin.
- Threadlift – Sutures to lift and reposition your saggy tissue. This gives immediate lifting, but effects can be shortlived in some cases.
Pros of Non surgical browlift:
- Instant, simple, effective
- Minimal to no down-time
Cons of Non Surgical Browlift:
- Effects are not permanent
- Works best for mild to moderate saggy brows and eyelids
- Requires combination approach for best results, hence takes time.
How does Chemical Brow-lift work?
- Anti wrinkle treatment: This lifts your eyebrows by relaxing the muscles which depress your brows, thereby allowing the elevator muscles to work unopposed, lifting your brows.
- Dermal fillers: Juvederm, Restylane, gives instant brow lifting and works nicely in areas which have had muscle relaxant injected.
Pros of a surgical endotine Browlift
- more dramatic
- longer lasting,
- with some down time required, within acceptable limits
Here are the types of Surgical Upper face lift
- upper Blepharoplasty :technique used to “lift” up the browswith suture fixation and simultaneous partial removal of the muscles contributing to brow depression
- lateral or temporal brow lift: for lateral brow lifting; can be combined with endoscopic brow lifting
- forehead lift, endoscopic: for medial and central brow lifting. This is my favourite technique.
