If you’re wondering what a browpexy is, you’re not alone. Often when we mention browpexy to our clients in Newport Beach, we get very quizical looks and it’s often confused with a brow lift. A brow lift, often referred to as a forehead lift, is better known and understood compared to a browpexy.
A brow lift corrects sagging in the skin of the forehead, upper eyelids, and eyebrows. Many of our Newport Beach clients have a brow lift done at the same time they get a face lift or cosmetic surgery on their nose. Brow lifts can significant rejuvenate the face and give an individual a more alert and pleasant appearance. Brow lifts can be done through a “classical” approach which is open or through endoscopic approaches that make tiny incisions and use laparoscopic tools. A brow lift involves lifting the entire forehead and results in a dynamic forehead with normal movements.
Browpexy on the other hand is a procedure that’s designed to elevate and stabilize the eyebrow. The procedure is commonly performed in combination with upper lid blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). Browpexies don’t lift the entire forehead, only the eyebrow. To correct saggy eyebrows that give off that angry, “furrowed brow” look browpexies are a great option as it fixes the eyebrow a stable position where it has very little movement. Often, browpexies are done in combination with blepharoplasty surgery in men with receding hairlines who want to avoid forehead scarring.
In general, a browpexy can be considered as one form of browlift and is often done as adjunct (add-on) procedure during other surgeries. Of course, both procedures have pros and cons, so if you live in the Newport Beach area and are wondering which is best for you, contact our office today so we can set up a consultation to discuss your aesthetic goals and together, you and Dr. Sajjadian can determine the best option for you.
