How a brow lift takes years off your face

It is no surprise that so many people want to know how a brow lift takes years off your face. The forehead and around the eyes is generally among the most distinguishable areas of the body when it comes to revealing the signs of aging. This is largely because the forehead and the brow is the cornerstone of human facial expressions. This region of our face has remarkably strong and resilient muscles that are constantly in use. The skin that is associated with these muscles, over time, will eventually stretch and wrinkle after years of use.

Just as with any other facial plastic surgery procedure, brow lift patients are carefully evaluated to ensure that they are qualified to undergo the procedure. Your facial plastic surgeon will discuss your goals with you, and will determine if the procedure is the best solution for your particular case. He or she wants to ensure that you have reasonable expectations of the procedure, and that you will be extremely pleased with the results.

Determining if you are a brow lift candidate

Most patients who want to improve the appearance of their foreheads and the regions around the brows qualify as a candidate for brow lift surgery. Brow lifts are designed to correct the following problems:

  • The presence of lines between your eyebrows
  • Creases or deep folds in the forehead
  • Brow skin that has begun to sag downward over the eyes
  • The upper eyelids are beginning to droop
  • The skin directly above your nose is beginning to sag
  • Looking perpetually tired or upset
  • Patients in good enough health to undergo an invasive surgical procedure
  • Patients with reasonable expectations of the surgery
  • People who are willing to commit to a healthy post-surgical lifestyle
