As we get older, it is only natural for our brow to begin to sag and develop wrinkles with the loss of elasticity. While natural, the effects of this occurrence are often seen as undesirable. A drooping of the brow can create frown lines between the eyebrows and deep furrows in the forehead. A sagging brow can also wrongfully give others the impression that you are sad or angry. A direct eyebrow lift and a lateral eyebrow lift are both effective procedures for treating these issues, but there are some key differences between the two procedures.
A direct eyebrow lift is a more invasive option than a lateral eyebrow lift. With a direct eyebrow lift, an incision is made above and along the length of the eyebrows. Excess skin and tissue is then removed from the forehead. The forehead skin is then pulled down and reattached at the brow. This procedure is effective at eliminating frown lines and smoothing furrows in the forehead. It also helps restore the eyebrows to their youthful arch aesthetics. Interested patients can contact our expert in direct eyebrow lift in Beverly Hills for more information regarding this particular technique.
A lateral eyebrow lift only involves the outer portion of the brow. Incisions are made near the hairline to loosen the tissues of the lateral brow. Excess skin is then removed, and the remaining skin is elevated to achieve more youthful arch aesthetics for your eyebrows. It is important to note that neither frown lines between the eyebrows or furrows in the forehead are treated by this procedure.
