Reston is a census-designated place in Fairfax County, Virginia. It is located between the Great Falls of the Potomac River and Centreville. People everywhere are trying to improve their appearance, which goes for Reston. A Reston brow lift is one way that they can improve their appearance.
A brow lift is a procedure that lifts the eyebrows to give them a more raised appearance which helps people look younger and feel better about themselves. Most people do not know that there are various brow lift techniques, and only one can be used on them.
The following are the various brow lift techniques:
The Endoscopic Brow Lift
The Endoscopic brow lift is a technique in which a small camera is inserted through tiny incisions in the hairline, allowing the surgeon to see what they are doing and avoid any damage to the nerves that control facial expression. The procedure is done under general anesthesia and usually takes about two hours.
The Incisional Brow Lift
The incisional brow lift is when the surgeon makes an incision just above the eyebrows, which allows them to lift the eyebrows and place them in their new position. The procedure is done under general anesthesia and usually takes about two hours.
The Endoscopic-Laser Brow Lift
This technique is similar to endoscopic brow lifts, but in addition, lasers are used to tighten the muscles under the skin. The procedure tightens up the entire face and reduces wrinkles.
The Open Brow Lift
The open brow lift is a technique where the surgeon makes an incision just above the eyebrows and places them in their new position. This procedure is done under general anesthesia and usually takes about two hours. The open brow lift is one of the ways to lift and tighten the skin of the forehead and reduce crow’s feet. Crow’s feet are the lines that run from the corner of the eye to the temple.
The Mini Brow Lift
The mini brow lift is a new brow lift technique that uses a laser to tighten muscle groups under the skin rather than an open incision or endoscopic method like its predecessors. As such, this procedure only requires tiny incisions, usually around the hairline. The procedure is done under local anesthesia and takes about an hour or two, depending on the treatment area.
Direct Brow Lift
The direct brow lift is a technique that uses an open incision made just above the eyebrows. The surgeon then lifts the eyebrows and removes any excess skin. The direct brow lift is a good choice for people who have a lot of excess skin on their forehead.
Trichophytic Brow Lift
This technique is best for those with excess hair on their forehead. A trichophytic brow lift is where the surgeon makes small incisions, cuts out sections or parts of the eyebrow, and then inserts them into the new position.
The best brow lift for you will depend on the degree of lift needed and the amount of excess skin present. Your surgeon will help you choose the best technique for you.
