A brow lift is sometimes called a forehead lift because it addresses the upper part of the face—areas not typically included in a facelift. While a facelift is an amazing procedure that can lift the mid to lower regions of the face (and is especially effective around the nose, cheeks, and mouth), it cannot address wrinkles across the forehead, nor can it take care of drooping covering up parts of the eyes. This is where the amazing benefits of the brow lift come into play.
What Is a Brow Lift?
This is a surgical procedure designed to lift and smooth out the forehead and the space between the eyes. Over time and with age, the eyebrows tend to start drooping. This can lead to sagging tissues over the eyes. We can raise the eyebrows back into correct positions while removing extra tissues that are causing the sagging.f
What Can a Brow Lift Do for You?
You may not be aware of the many benefits that this seemingly tiny procedure can do for you. However, it is extremely beneficial in making you appear more youthful. First, it can smooth the entire area around the eyes. If you have been looking tired whenever you see yourself in the mirror, you may be surprised at how much more open and happier your face appears after a lift. This procedure can also be customized to your needs to open up the eye area, reveal your upper eyelids again and get rid of horizontal and vertical lines in the area.
Is a Brow Lift Permanent?
A brow lift is considered to be a permanent procedure when compared to such options as dermal fillers. Many different factors affect how long this procedure will last, so your Restore SD surgeon will discuss a comprehensive aftercare program with you to help maximize the results.
You may be a good candidate for a brow lift if you are unhappy with the look of lines, wrinkles and furrows across your forehead and between your eyes. You should be in good health, should not smoke and should have realistic goals for what this procedure can do for you. Keep in mind that it can only address the topmost portion of your face. If you need to address other parts of your face, you will want to ask your practitioner about other treatments that may also be able to help you when used in conjunction with this lift.
