Most commonly, people will seek out a face lift procedure to improve on visible signs of aging. A face lift, however, will only treat the loose and wrinkled skin on the lower area of the face. For people experiencing greater signs of aging on the upper half of their face, a brow lift procedure is ideal. A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, focuses on treating the wrinkled, sagging skin found across the forehead and around the eyebrows. Brow lift surgery will restore youthfulness to the forehead and brow area allowing patients to better match their appearance with their age and personality.
Reasons For A Brow Lift
Just as in other areas of the face, the skin on your forehead will begin to sag losing shape and taking aesthetic vitality with it. The forehead area is one of the most expressive parts of a person’s face making it even more susceptible to natural side effects of aging along with stress and sun exposure.
Benefits of a brow lift procedure include:
- Rejuvenated appearance
- Reduced appearance of wrinkles and frown lines across the forehead and/or between the eyes
- Raising or repositioning of low, drooping eyebrows creating a more alert expression
- Improvement of excess skin hanging over the eyes
Brow lifts have also proven to be beneficial in improving sad or angry expressions resulting from wrinkles or sagging brows; lifted smoother forehead skin gives patients a renewed youthfulness in their appearance that better matches their disposition.
