While plastic surgeons agree that a browlift is a procedure that rejuvenates the forehead, the approach utilized can differ significantly from one plastic surgeon to the next. For example, Dr. Arie Benchetrit rarely performs a traditional brow lift these days, favoring less invasive techniques that can tighten weakened muscles and smooth the skin with minimal incisions.
Throughout Montreal, Dr. Benchetrit has become especially well-known for his signature trans-blepharoplasty browlift technique. It allows him to perform an eyelid lift and browlift simultaneously with one less invasive procedure. Read on to better understand more about this exciting advancement in browlifts.
What Is Trans-Blepharoplasty Browlift
With trans-blepharoplasty browlift, Dr. Benchetrit makes a single small incision along the crease of the upper eyelid. Excess brow fat can be removed or repositioned through this incision. Most importantly, Dr. Benchetrit carefully places a suspension suture that elevates the brow to its most aesthetic position. The suture dissolves over the course of several months, but the brow remains at the proper elevation thanks to the scar tissue that has formed under the brow. The scar tissue is very solid and keeps the brow in position for many years.
Because signs of aging typically manifest on the upper eyelids and forehead at around the same time, many patients use this opportunity to have Dr. Benchetrit perform upper eyelid surgery through the same incision. This surgery tightens the eyelid muscles and removes loose skin so that the upper eyelids can open wider for a younger, refreshed appearance.
Benefits of Trans-Blepharoplasty Browlift
The leading benefit of this browlift technique is the ability to perform two procedures simultaneously without requiring many incisions. This reduces the costs associated with two separate procedures and helps to rejuvenate the top portion of the face more thoroughly in a way that looks natural.
Because the procedure is less invasive than other forms of browlift, the recovery is shorter with less post-surgical discomfort. Additionally, the scar hides easily along the eyelid’s crease. While other forms of browlift put the incision along the hairline, many patients (especially men) experience a receding hairline at some point in their lives, which no longer hides the scar.
This surgical approach is best for patients with mild to moderate signs of aging. People with advanced aging may be better candidates for a more invasive procedure.
