Brow Lift Revision – Reversing Brow Lift – Lowering Hairline Operation
If a plastic surgeon is too aggressive and over elevates the brow and forehead during a brow lift surgery, the result can look artificial and sometimes the appearance can be a surprised or startled appearance. If overzealous, a procedure like an endoscopic brow lift can also elevate the hairline which can make a woman look older and like she has had plastic surgery. The best way to avoid this problem is to make sure the goals of the surgery are clear with your surgeon, and make sure your aesthetic matches with your doctor by looking at many before and after photos of his or her previous patients. Once this happens, however, there is a procedure available to reverse a brow lift and revise it to lower the forehead and the brow either to a position that looks more natural but is still higher than it was before surgery or back to its original position. Doctor Jacono has performed many revision brow lift surgeries on patients who had their first surgery performed elsewhere.
The reverse brow lift is a very specialized revision browlift procedure that requires extensive background in forehead and scalp reconstructive plastic surgery. An incision is typically made along the front of the hairline, which tends to heal very nicely with little visible scarring if done carefully with specialized plastic surgery suturing technique. The hair-bearing portion of your scalp is then mobilized and brought forward allowing the brows to move downward to a position that you have decided on before surgery. This also allows an elevated hairline to be moved down into a new lower position, looking more natural.
