As we all know, wrinkles and lines on the face can make you look older than you really are. You may be most concerned about lines around the eyes and mouth, but lines in the forehead can also make you look old and perpetually worried. If you are concerned that your brow is making you look older than you are, a brow lift can help.
What happens during a brow lift?
Because of the effects of time, exposure to the sun, lifestyle, and other factors, the face naturally begins to look wrinkled and saggy – and this can include the upper part of the face as well!
A brow lift is a relatively simple procedure that can make a big difference. During a brow lift, the surgeon removes excess skin and tightens up the remaining skin to remove wrinkles and help to tone up drooping eyebrows, placing them in a higher (and more “youthful”) position. This procedure can be combined with other procedures, such as a facelift, to give you toned and line-free skin.
What are the benefits of a brow lift?
Besides the dramatic results that you’ll see after a brow lift, other benefits include a quick recovery time (patients can typically return to work in about a week) and the long-lasting results. Brow lifts typically last longer than other plastic surgery procedures, such as Botox injections.
Another benefit is the almost invisible scars. The surgeon can typically make any incisions discreetly, hiding them within the hair line or someplace that can easily be hidden with bangs.
Most patients see swelling and bruising in the upper part of the face, but this subsides about 3 to 4 days after the procedure – after which you’ll see younger looking and toned skin, free of wrinkles and worry lines.
A brow lift is a simple way to see long-lasting results. You may not even think of the brow when considering a plastic surgery procedure, but toning and tightening this part of the face can really make a difference. Call Jeffrey C.
