The signs of aging on your face start off oh-so subtly, usually on your brow and forehead. As you age, your skin begins to lose its elasticity. You also lose fat in your temples and brow area. Factor in the sun, the wind's harsh effects and the pull of gravity, and you’ve got frown lines (vertical creases between your eyebrows), wrinkling across your forehead and heavy, drooping eyebrows. These changes can start when you are in your 30s, and may make you look angry, sad or even perplexed when you are not.

A brow lift or forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that will return the brow to a more youthful shape and position as well as minimize the creases and wrinkles across the forehead and dramatically improve the wrinkles located between the eyebrows.

A forehead lift can be performed using one of three common procedures: an endobrow lift performed through an endoscope, an open brow lift, or a temporal lift.

Open brow lift

The classic brow lift involves one continuous incision, beginning at the level of your ears and going up around your hair line. Depending on where your hair line is, the plastic surgeon will move the incision line to avoid a visible scar. For instance, if you are a man who is balding, the surgeon can make the incision mid-scalp, so the scar can be hidden in the remaining hair. After a conventional forehead lift, you may experience temporary discomfort and numbness swelling and unusual sensations, which may include itching or lack of sensation at the incision line.

Endoscopic lift
In the endoscopic lift, instead of making one continuous incision, your surgeon will make a few shorter incisions in the scalp. He will insert a scope (small camera on the end of a thin tube) into one of the incisions in order to view the tissues and muscles from a screen. At the same time the plastic surgeon will use another device inserted in another incision to make the necessary alterations. In this procedure, small anchors are used to secure the offending tissue once it's altered appropriately. Those anchors are tiny, but mighty. They'll keep your tissue under control for years. Because the incisions are smaller, this procedure is less invasive. You will experience minimal scarring and shortened recovery time.

Lateral brow lift

Lateral brow lift, also referred to by many as temporal brow lift or simply temporal lift, is among the less invasive surgical ones and mainly targets the outer eyebrows, the outer corners of the eyes as well as the temporal area. The procedure is typically performed under local anaesthesia and requires small incisions in the temple area above the hairline. Once the scars fade, they completely blend in with the hair. The outcome is immediately visible and in spite of the swelling, the recovery time is relatively short.

Keep in mind that you may need a modified or additional procedure to achieve your goals and expectations. For example, a forehead lift is often performed during a facelift, eye lift surgery or chemical peel. Your plastic surgeon in Cyprus can help develop a successful strategy, which often includes a combination treatment plan customized for each individual.
