ANDREW T. LYOS, MD, FACS
FOREHEAD AND EYEBROW LIFT
- Eyebrows are an essential feature to the beauty of your eyes. Years of facial animation result in sagging of the eyebrows and the formation of deep furrows between the eyebrows and along the forehead. The result is a tired or sad, stressed-out look. When the eyebrows are elevated, the tired look disappears completely; you look youthful and refreshed.
- A recent breakthrough in technology now allows Dr. Lyos to elevate the eyebrows and forehead using minimally invasive cosmetic surgery. The technique involves using an endoscope, a viewing instrument that allows the procedure to be performed with minimal incisions. The procedure produces smoother forehead skin, a younger and refreshed look, and a more animated appearance.
- Forehead and eyebrow lifting is frequently combined with an eyelid tuck or facelift. However, in younger patients, it may be a sole procedure. Many patients are back to their daily routines within a week. The sutures are removed within a week, and the swelling and bruising subsides within a week to 10 days.
