This is an elegant-but-simple procedure for patients who wish to reduce the excess skin and hooding around the lateral brows and eyelids. A lateral brow lift is ideal for those who have concerns about the look of their eyebrows or crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes.
Performed under local anesthesia as an in-office procedure, the results are immediately apparent. A lateral brow lift is considerably less invasive than a coronal or traditional brow lift, and therefore carries less risk of infection or other complications. Recovery time is very short.
The excess, redundant, hooded skin of the lateral eyebrow is tightened through a small incision in the hairline. The lateral brow lift removes excess skin, lifting the outer corners of the forehead. The lift does not consist of any muscle reconstruction, and only involves the tightening and removal of excess tissues.
