How a brow lift can help improve an aging appearance
- Posted on: Apr 15 2021
A sagging or heavy brow can contribute to an aged appearance, as well as make patients look as though they have a permanent scowl. When patients are interested in combatting this problem, they often turn to their local plastic surgeon to learn about a procedure known as the brow lift. The brow lift, sometimes referred to as a forehead lift, can address the position of the eyebrows as well as reduce wrinkles and folds on the forehead. This surgical procedure may also alleviate wrinkles between the eyebrows, known as the glabellar lines.
What is done during a brow lift?
Dr. Homayoun Sasson of Sasson Plastic Surgery describes the brow lift procedure as a specific way of addressing the position of the eyebrows by removing excess skin and muscle from the forehead area. This is done using small incisions along the hairline to reduce the appearance of any scarring that might be left behind following this procedure. The brow lift can make patients look more relaxed, awake, and youthful.
Can the brow lift be performed with other surgeries?
While brow lift surgery can be performed all on its own, many patients combine the brow lift with other facial surgeries such as the facelift or neck lift. This ensures dramatic, noticeable results without looking fake. Our surgeon is focused on all procedures having natural-looking final results, so patients never look as though they’ve had “work done” when they return to work and social activities.
What are the benefits of undergoing a brow lift procedure?
Below are a few of the more common advantages that are considered when patients are thinking about undergoing the brow lift treatment:
- Elevation and smoothing of a drooping forehead
- Smoothing of wrinkles and furrows around the eyes and brow area
- Increase in self-esteem and confidence
- Better framing of the face with repositioned eyebrows
- A well-rested expression and a more youthful overall look
