Brow lifts are designed to elevate the eyebrows to a more youthful position. This “opens up” the eyes and relieves a tired or angry look. It gives one a younger look as well. In females the brow lift can “feminize” the face by giving the brow a natural curve. This procedure also allows weakening of the muscles that create the frown lines such that a permanent Botox-like effect is achieved. By surgically elevating the brows one doesn’t wrinkle the forehead muscles as much, thus smoothing the forehead.

Dr. McClure was one the first surgeons in the North Bay to employ the newer endoscopic techniques which enabled the brow lift to be performed through 5 or 6 small incisions placed in the scalp above the hairline; a great advantage over traditional techniques which used a continuous incision across the top of the head. This operation is usually performed under local anesthesia with sedation and may be combined with other eyelid or facial procedures such as the Lite-lift™, a Face and Neck Lift, Chemical Peels (TCA),or Blepharoplasties. The operation is safe and recovery is rapid.

Browlifts are not for everybody, only those who have inherited low brows. The low brow adds to heaviness over the eye, giving one a tired worn-out look, or an older look. Those of us with low brows will unconsciously wrinkle the forehead to keep the brows up. Those born with more elevated brows wrinkle the forehead much less.

Though most browlift patients are in their late thirties or above, the problems of a low brow can be seen in those much younger. The browlift results are permanent, that is this is a “one time” operation. Younger patients with low brow problems can enjoy the benefits of surgery without the need for repeat surgery as they age.
