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.
