Have you found yourself looking less friendly and happy lately? Over time, the effects of gravity cause the soft tissues of the forehead to loosen and sag. A brow lift can be used to reverse these effects by tightening the soft tissues in the forehead, restoring a more youthful appearance.
A brow lift can improve the appearance of your eyebrows, upper eyelids and forehead skin. There are a few different approaches to the brow lift, so it’s important to make sure you’re receiving the best approach for your unique situation.
The location and length of the incisions depend on the type of approach that is used. In some cases, the procedure might even involve the use of an endoscope. While at rest, a youthful brow should be positioned above the orbital rim with gradual lateral arch.
As you age, your brow will begin to assume a horizontal or flat position. If you find that you have a sagging brow inhibiting your facial expressions, then it’s time to consider getting a brow lift.
When Should You Consider This Procedure?
If you have a sagging eyebrow giving you a grumpy, sad or tired appearance, then you should consider a brow lift. The procedure can help if you have deep horizontal creases across your forehead. Also, if you have fatty tissue or excess skin hanging over your eyes, then a brow lift may be a viable option.
The Pros and Cons of a Brow Lift
While a major benefit of the procedure is that it repositions sagging or low brows to provide a youthful, alert appearance, it’s important to understand that the results you’ll get from a brow lift are highly dependent on the skill of the surgeon, which is why we recommend you contact Dr. J. Anthony Stephensand schedule a consultation.
What Results Can You Expect?
It can take up to six months to see the full effects of a brow lift. After six months, the incisions should’ve healed completely, and you should be enjoying a much more youthful, happy appearance.
While the aging process can negatively affect the results over time, wrinkle lines around your brow area should never be as bad as they were initially. By maintaining a healthy lifestyle and avoiding too much sun exposure, you can make sure the results last as long as possible.
