Eyebrow Lift Surgery
The brows can be raised cosmetically with the help of a brow lift. In other terms, it is also known as forehead lift or forehead rejuvenation. The forehead, brow, and region surrounding the eyes, all look better after the treatment. The skin around the forehead and soft tissue are raised throughout the treatment. If your brows are uneven or low, you can decide to have the procedure done. A brow lift can be performed single-handedly or in conjunction with other facial operations like a facelift or eyelid surgery.

Direct Brow Lift - The skin above the eyebrows is removed during this surgery. The majority of direct brow lift patients have thick brows. Additionally, it can be performed with a local anesthetic, which just numbs a portion of the body, and is a shorter procedure.
Coronal Brow Lift - An incision is made behind the hairline over the top of the head, from ear to ear, or mostly on the top of the head during this treatment. With the scalp in front of the incision overlapping the scalp behind it, the forehead is then raised into its new position.
Hairline Brow Lift - An incision is made behind the hairline over the top of the head, from ear to ear, or mostly on the top of the head during this treatment. With the scalp in front of the incision overlapping the scalp behind it, the forehead is then raised into its new position.Step 3 - Closing the Incision
The incision is then closed with the help of microscopic or dissolvable sutures.
