Direct Brow Lift

I had an upper eyelid lift about 12 years ago. I went for a consultation, and the surgeon said the skin above my eye is too thin,so I can't have another upper eye lift. He suggested a direct brow lift, where the incision is made in my eyebrow, or directly above. The stitches disappear in about a year. This is the second surgeon who independently recommended this. This procedure is different from the usual brow lifts where the incision is either at the hairline, or in the scalp. Second question. My eyebrows are very light and thin. I was thinking about getting permanent eyebrows done. If anyone has experience with either of these, could you comment?

I had my eyebrows tatooed about a year ago because although I have plenty of hair, it is so light you can't see it. I LOVE them! I have eyebrows all day long now. Although I wish I would have had a little more 'lift' in them, I can pencil that in and it still is a 200% improvement. I have a pretty high pain threshold and still found it a little uncomfortable, but nothing needed for pain after at all. Would like to have my lips lined but can't even imagine how much that would hurt!!

I agree with you. I had my eyebrows tattooed many years ago and loved it. In time it faded, however. I decided I am going to have mine done in a week. The person is going to follow my natural brow line, and then we will see about any further cosmetic surgery to lift my brows or forehead. I also experienced a bit of pain, and I know it will hurt to get my lips done, but they are so faded, and lipstick disappears before I leave the house. I asked about having a pain block for my lips, so it hurts a little less.

I have found Revlon's Colorstay lipstick really does last a long time, you might want to give it a try first. Let me know how the lip tat goes!
