Traditional brow lift surgery involves an incision along the hairline from ear to ear, lifting the skin, and adjusting the muscles in the brow. More recently, the endoscopic brow lift procedure has become a popular alternative. Results are usually good, with small incisions in the hairline. For his patients with mild heaviness to their brow, Dr. Rivkin recommends trying BOTOX® Cosmetic injections prior to going under the knife.
BOTOX® Cosmetic smoothes out wrinkles by weakening and relaxing the muscles that cause skin to wrinkle. More than just smoothing out worry and frown lines, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can create a lifting effect by relaxing the muscles that pull down on the eyebrows. This not only raises the ends of the eyebrows into a more pleasing arch (correcting a downward slanting “sad eyes” appearance), but also opens the eyes, reducing the “hooded” appearance so common in middle aged eyes.
This procedure is appropriate for mild brow drooping only. If you are a better candidate for surgical brow lift, Dr. Rivkin will discuss referring you for this during your consultation.
