What is a brow lift?

Unlike injectables like BOTOX, which may fall short in achieving the desired look, a brow lift can effectively smooth out frown lines, horizontal lines on the forehead, and creases between the eyebrows. Additionally, it gently lifts the eyebrows and eyelids for a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

What's more, a brow lift can create more impactful changes than injectables and correct 'heavy brows.' In cases where the brow hangs low or sags over the eyes, causing a tired or aged look, lifting the brow can restore a youthful appearance for up to 12 years.

Dr. Markelov's innovative drainless brow lift procedure is truly one-of-a-kind, thanks to a hemostatic net. This cutting-edge technique enables better skin redistribution and more dramatic results, all while minimizing the risk of bleeding or fluid collection.

A Minimally Invasive Approach: The Dr. Markelov Difference

Dr. Markelov's approach to the brow lift distinguishes him in the field due to his specialization in minimally invasive procedures, setting a new standard for patient care and outcomes. His expertise lies in utilizing the latest techniques, such as the Gliding brow lift, to achieve natural-looking results with minimal disruption to the surrounding tissues. The Gliding brow lift is an innovative method that involves repositioning the brow tissues using a sliding technique, eliminating the need for extensive incisions. This approach minimizes scarring and reduces post-operative downtime, allowing patients to enjoy a quicker recovery while achieving a rejuvenated and harmonious brow appearance. Dr. Markelov's dedication to advanced, effective techniques underscores his commitment to providing exceptional care and optimal patient results.

The procedure

Before performing the brow lift, Dr. Markelov considers each patient's skin quality, age, and desired look to determine the best approach. During the procedure, he makes a discreet incision either along the hairline or across the top of the head, with the incision length tailored to the specific corrections needed.

With a hemostatic net, Dr. Markelov can redistribute the skin more effectively, achieving more dramatic results with minimal risk of bleeding or fluid collections. This technique also avoids surgical drains during recovery.

Dr. Markelov is dedicated to minimizing scarring and keeping incisions as small as possible. The forehead skin is lifted precisely, and excess skin is removed from the scalp. Brow lifts are often combined with facelifts and eyelid surgeries for complete rejuvenation.
