Who is suitable for infrabrow lift?
Infrabrow lift is the most suitable for individuals with sagging and hooding of the outer upper eyelids. As we age, the human skin loses its natural support structures like collagen and elastin. This causes the skin, including the upper eyelids, to sag from gravity. This may cause the eyelids to droop down and appear tired and listless, making one appear older. Infrabrow lift, in combination with upper blepharoplasty can remove excessive skin and hooding of the upper eyelids, giving one a more refreshed and younger look.
Infrabrow lift is typically performed under local anaesthesia.
The surgeon will make an incision along the lower brow line at the outer part or tail of the eyebrows. From this incision, excess fat, skin and some muscle are excised. At this stage, additional sutures can be placed to reposition the outer part of the eyebrows. The incision is then closed with sutures. This will tighten and lift the skin between the brows and the eyes, improving the lateral hooding and uncovering any ‘hidden’ double eyelid crease.
The whole procedure will take about 45 to 60 minutes, depending on individual conditions and the complexity of the case
