Our personalities, lifestyles, and daily habits can eventually lead to the development of lines and furrows across the brow line that can make us look angry, tired, or sad. These lines and wrinkles, or “droopiness” can occur due to aging, stress, and repetitive muscle activity, and can even show up due to genetics if they tend to run in your family.
Having a droopy brow line can often make you appear older than you really are, which can affect your confidence and self-esteem, and the way you feel about your overall appearance.
Fortunately, there are cosmetic facial rejuvenation procedures that can help improve a droopy brow line, and add years to your appearance.
What is a brow lift?
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is when the muscles and tissues that cause a drooping brow line are removed or changed to restore a youthful, refreshed look to your brow. The procedure can help make your skin look smoother, and your features more animated.
A brow lift can be performed on individuals of all ages, but is performed most often on patients over the age of 40 who want to reverse signs of aging. In many cases, brow lift surgery can be combined with eyelid surgery or facelift surgery to help achieve an overall youthful appearance and smoother skin.
What is eyelid surgery?
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is when excess skin and fat tissue is removed from your eyelids, and skin is tightened to create a smoother, more youthful look around the eyes. While eyelid surgery may not directly address a droopy brow line, this procedure can lend to a younger-looking appearance by correcting drooping upper eyelids and puffy bags under the eyes.
What is a facelift?
A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, helps improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck, such as that caused by the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and stress. During facelift surgery, your plastic surgeon reshapes skin and excess fat on your face and neck, and tightens underlying muscles to produce a fresher, younger-looking appearance. If a droopy brow line is caused by excess skin, a facelift can address this problem area, and help rejuvenate your face as a whole.
