Brow Lift (Pretrichial)

 

This patient in her 50s is 4 months out following a full facelift which included a brow lift and eyelid surgery.  As you can see in her after photo her brows are no longer pushing her eyelids down yet they maintain a natural appearance with a gentle arch.  The appearance of her eyes has also improved although part of that is attributable to her eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty).  The incision here is known as a pretrichial incision or just in front of the hairline.  This helped to lower her hairline and at the same time raise her eyebrows.  The wrinkles of her forehead present in her before picture have also improved even though she did not have a resurfacing procedure.
