Are you tired of looking older, and the creases and lines that have appeared on your forehead? A brow lift can resolve these problems and provide significant facial rejuvenation. While many people have relied on BOTOX or dermal fillers to treat the problem, in some cases, only a surgical procedure will create the smooth, unlined brow that signals youth.

Are You a Candidate for a Brow Lift?

If you are genetically programmed to have a drooping, creased brow, you may be a candidate for a brow lift. The issues that are resolved include overhanging upper lids, drooping or heavy brows, or when the eyebrows have drifted below the brow bone. Frown lines between your brows, eyes may appear droopy with an overhanging, heavy look.

Drooping brows are a common symptom of aging skin, but modern surgical techniques give you the opportunity to improve on what nature dictates. Many people see their brows drifting below the brow bone, leaving them looking less vital and attractive, and choose to undergo a brow lift to rejuvenate the entire upper face. Candidates are those with the following conditions:

  • Eyebrows are now lower than they were and have drifted below the eye socket rim due to aging skin.
  • Brows are now too close to upper lids, affecting facial appearance.
  • Your upper eyelids and a furrowed brow make you appear tired or angry.
  • You have heavy, overhanging brows that you feel make you look less attractive.
    If you have a receding hairline, a specialized surgical technique can be employed to resolve the condition. Smokers are not good candidates for surgery.

What Causes a Furrowed Brow?

You may be very expressive, and have continually raised your brows in laughter, surprise, or concentration. Unfortunately, these constant facial expressions lead to deep creases or lines on the brow which can make you appear older, tired, or angry. Aging skin loses its natural flexibility as collagen production diminishes, and a once youthful, firm brow now appears heavy and lined. A brow lift smooths the brow, while lifting the upper eye structure for a more open, approachable, and youthful look.

Brow Lift The Procedure

A forehead lift or brow lift involves repositioning the muscle structure beneath the brow to lift and smooth the brow, with the added benefit of lifting the upper lids. This procedure involves removing some excess skin and tightening the underlying muscle structure to create a more open, youthful look. This surgery requires a high level of surgical skill, as a poorly-performed brow lift can create a strange, surprised look that may be difficult to correct – choose your plastic surgeon carefully.

Recovery from a Brow Lift

After your brow lift surgery is complete, you will wake up with your forehead bandaged or in a compression bandage, which will be removed within a day or two. To help speed healing and limit swelling and bruising, apply cold compresses. Most patients can return to all normal activities after about one week. The stitches or surgical staples are removed after about ten days. The brow soon settles into the right appearance and any unevenness smooths and resolves, as these effects are temporary.
