Brow lift surgery at the University of Ottawa.
A brow lift (also known as a forehead lift) is an effective way to rejuvenate the upper face when lax skin causes the brows to droop.
Patients under the care of plastic surgeons at the University of Ottawa are treated to the latest surgical methods to lift and reposition the brows for a natural and pleasing outcome. Depending on the patient’s needs, either an endoscopic or coronal brow lift technique will be applied. The placement and extent of the surgical incision differs for each of these surgeries. This allows for trimming excess skin, tightening, lifting, repositioning and shaping the brow as needed. The surgery is designed to minimize scarring by accessing the underlying muscle and connective tissue from the hairline or eyelid crease. An in-depth consultation with a plastic surgeon will determine the ideal treatment plan based on the patient’s health, medical history and desired outcome. Patients are informed on what to expect pre, during and post operation to ensure their comfort, safety and optimal recovery.
