Brow lift

Brow lift

In facial feminization surgery a brow lift is almost always combined with forehead recontouring and hairline reshaping (forehead reduction), procedures using the same incision. In forehead feminisation procedures, it’s very important to correct the position and shape of the eyebrows with a brow lift after remodeling the frontal bone.

Feminizing the eyebrow

A brow lift is a well-known procedure in plastic surgery, used mostly by older genetic women to restore a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. A brow lift opens up your eyes making one look less stern and tired.

A brow lift is done by lifting the skin of the entire forehead, causing the eyebrows to raise.

In FFS, an eyebrow lift is almost always combined with forehead recontouring and scalp advancement. The arch and height of the eyebrows are related to the shape of the frontal bone that lies beneath. This is why, in forehead feminisation procedures, it’s very important to correct the position and shape of the eyebrows with a brow lift after remodeling the frontal bone.
