The natural shape and position of male brows are significantly different from female brows. Male brows are typically positioned slightly below the orbital rim, which is why conservative adjustments are required to avoid drastically changing or feminizing the patient’s appearance.
Dr. Sedgh uses several methods for male brow lift procedures. Some techniques, such as the the trichophytic brow lift and the classic coronal brow lift, involve longer incisions starting from one side of the head to the other. The exact location will vary depending on the technique used. Another popular approach is the endoscopic lift, which involves four or five short incisions in the scalp through which special instruments will be inserted to allow the surgeon to view the facial tissues and make the necessary alterations.
Temporal and direct brow lifts also involve shorter incisions. For the latter, the incisions will be made above or within the eyebrow hairs, while the former requires incisions in the temple area, usually hidden behind the hairline.
Dr. Sedgh may also use the transblepharoplasty approach, which uses an upper eyelid incision to create internal brow fixation by means of either sutures or an endotine—a small, dissolvable implant.
With every procedure, Dr. Sedgh considers the patient’s special needs and physical attributes to create the most optimal, natural-looking results. By choosing the right approach and making the most strategic adjustments, he can successfully achieve the desired lift without negatively affecting the patient’s hairline height, hair volume, and facial hair.
