Facial aging is caused by the downward pull of static gravitational forces and the dynamic, downward pull of facial muscles. These forces cause the soft tissues of the face to relax from the bony
the framework and downwards. If the eyebrows are furrowed, the person looks sad and tired. Eyebrow drooping is more common in older people, but younger people can also develop drooping eyebrows for genetic reasons.
The operation is performed under general anaesthesia and takes about 1 – 1.5 hours. Minimal incisions are made in the hairy part of the head, so the scars are very well camouflaged. This surgery not only tightens the skin and smooths wrinkles, but also lifts sagging forehead muscles. Very often, forehead and brow lifts are combined with upper eyelid surgery and fat injections in the face.
