Have your eyebrows sagged? This can make you look depressed. Sometimes the skin around your upper eyelids can stretch to the extent that hangs over your eyes. This can make you look angry, but if it is only the outer part of the eyebrows that have sagged, then an eyebrow lift can be the solution.
The symptoms paired with sagging eyebrows are quite similar to those of hanging upper eyelids. However, when the space between the eyebrows and the eyelashes is too small, then an eyelid correction alone is not the solution.
Prior to your treatment, photos are taken for in your medical file. An eyebrow lift is performed using a local sedative and takes take about an hour to perform. The plastic surgeon takes a strip of skin and connective tissue from the hairline above the temple. A strip of skin is also removed from just above the eyebrow (on the outer side). Next, the tissue is pulled tighter and stitched, leaving scars in the hairline where you will not be able to see them. Afterwards, the wound is covered with a plaster.
The incisions, needed to perform the eyebrow lift, are stitched as nicely as possible. The scars, (where possible) are hidden in the skin folds just above the eyebrows. The scars can be very fierce in colour for the first few months. After a while, they will start to take on the colour of your skin.
