A mini brow lift is a minimally invasive brow lift that helps to tighten the skin and muscles in the forehead. The surgery involves making small incisions usually no longer than two inches that are hidden behind the hairline. The "mini" in mini brow lift refers to the fact that the incisions are significantly smaller than those in traditional brow lifts.
With the continual advancements in plastic surgery techniques, mini brow lifts can be made more effective with the utilization of lasers or radio frequency. These other tools can make mini brow lifts even more invasive as these methods deliver energy, in the form of heat, to loosen the underlying brow muscle layers. Another result of these methods is that the first few skin layers become contracted which minimizes the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
In the procedure, surgeons can reach and release the fibrous connections of the brow from the skull beneath via the incisions made. In the process of disconnecting some of these muscles, surgeons can pull back the forehead skin and adjust the smoothness of the forehead. Some excessive brow skin is excised to accommodate the stretching.
Compared to the traditional brow lift or endoscopic brow lift surgery, the results are not as dramatic. But since the procedure is much less invasive, there is a lower risk of complications and the recovery time is drastically faster. The most distinguishing advantage is the absence of any large scars. When mini brow lifts includes the used of the high-tech methods of lasers and radio frequency, which reduce the need for invasive muscle cutting, faster healing times have been noted.
Although the results are not as dramatic as the more invasive brow lifts, many people do not require these methods as mini brow lifts is sufficient to reach their desired objectives. The procedure will still give the restored impression of youthfulness and vigor. A successful mini brow lift can raise the eyebrows, smooth frown lines, and improve the symmetry of the forehead.
