Brow Lift: Look and Feel Younger
Does a drooping brow make it difficult for you to make other expressions other than frowning? Are you tired of people not talking to you because they are afraid of your grumpy appearance? Maybe it's time for you to consider having a brow lift.
What is Brow Lift?
Brow lift, also called forehead lift, is a simple surgery used to lift and tighten the sagging soft tissues of the forehead. This procedure helps make the skin on the forehead, upper eyelids, and eyebrows smoother, making your face look much younger. The two types of brow lift surgery are open brow lift and endoscopic brow lift. Your surgeon will tell you which is more appropriate for your case.
This procedure involves:
Removing unwanted fatty tissue
Tightening muscles that have been stretched over time
Tightening any loose skin in the forehead area
Who Should Consider Having a Brow Lift Surgery?
The Center for Facial Appearances says that if you have one or two of the following problems, then you are an ideal candidate for a brow lift.
Low or drooping eyebrow position that makes you look sad, tired, or grumpy
Your forehead has deep horizontal lines across it.
Frown lines or furrows can be seen between your eyebrows.
There is an excess skin or tissue covering your eyes.
Of course, like any type of surgery, you need to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon and you should be in good general health.
Benefits of Brow Lift
After undergoing a brow lift surgery, there will be a significant change in your demeanor. People will see you as more approachable; hence, you will gain more self-confidence and self-esteem. Additionally, you will look younger.
A brow lift is usually done for cosmetic reasons, but in cases where the drooping brows and upper eyelids are already affecting your vision, the procedure becomes a necessity. Whether your reason is cosmetic or medical, you should only have the surgery done by a highly experienced board-certified plastic surgeon.
