When you think of a youthful face, you may think of smooth, wrinkle-free skin. But wrinkles are just one part of the equation. The position of certain facial features often has a strong effect on how young a face looks, and on how happy you appear to be.
Gravity takes its toll on skin and facial structures, bringing them out of line from their original location. The forehead and brow areas are often the first areas to be affected. Eyebrows sink lower on the face, interfering with the appearance of your eyes, which can cause your face to look sad, angry, or tired, and detracts from the beauty of your other features. You may look as if you have a slightly furrowed brow at all times. And, it doesn’t just happen later in life. People in their 30s may start noticing this difference.
Benefits of a brow lift
Also known as a “forehead lift,” a brow lift gives you a natural, rejuvenated look that can make you appear happier and more rested. It smooths out lines on the brow and eliminates any sagging or furrowing that overshadows your face.
A brow lift is beneficial for both men and women. Many professionals find that having their foreheads and brow lines restored to a more harmonious location has a positive impact on their career, as they appear more relaxed, approachable, and alert.
If you have a naturally heavy brow or lines above the nose, a brow lift can help make these areas look younger. Some people actually notice feelings of heaviness from a brow that weighs on their eyes, which even alters their vision. These individuals find relief from the sensation of heaviness after brow lift surgery, and can see better while also looking younger!
Pairing it with other procedures
For some patients, a brow lift is more effective when combined with procedures such as a facelift or eyelid surgery. The surgeries complement one another, as they combat the effects of gravity on different parts of the face. And, all procedures can usually be done at the same time to provide patients with a convenient and efficient way to get a complete facial makeover.
