Aging lines and wrinkles between the brows and on the forehead can make a person appear older, tired or angry. Brow lift cosmetic surgery is a safe, proven and effective procedure to restore a smoother, youthful appearance of the brows and create a fresh looking upper face.
During the pre-op consultation, the surgeon will carefully determine the patient’s candidacy for brow lift. Some patients may need both brow lift and eyelid lift, while some others may benefit simply from a non-surgical Botox procedure. The surgeon will give appropriate recommendations according to the patient’s upper face anatomy and their unique cosmetic needs.
Dr. Eugene Kim is a board certified plastic surgeon providing brow lift and various other cosmetic procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding communities.
Most people seeking brow lift surgery are above the age of 40. At this age, the brow lines and eyelids typically begin to sag and noticeable wrinkles and fine lines begin to appear along the forehead. Some people may experience these issues in their 20s or 30s, if the problem runs in the family. Anyone considering brow lift cosmetic surgery should have realistic expectations and know clearly what it can or cannot do for them.
Brow lift candidates often initially assume that they require eyelid lift surgery to improve drooping above the eyes. After a consultation with the aesthetic surgeon they may realize that a brow lift could minimize such problems more effectively. Individuals with the following concerns usually make good candidates for brow lift:
- Drooping brows
- Angry or tired appearance
- Horizontal lines across the forehead
- Deep furrows between the brows
- Heavy upper eyelids
Having Forehead Lines
Lines and wrinkles in the forehead may develop over the years due to repetitive expressions. An individual may feel self-conscious due to the appearance of these obvious signs of aging. These deep lines can be improved with Botox or dermal fillers only for a temporary period. If the candidate wants to have a long term solution to forehead lines as well as the lines that form across the nose bridge, they may choose brow lift surgery.
Tired and Sad Look
The underlying forehead muscles may sag with age and create a less than alert appearance of the upper face. This will, in turn, also cause the brows to fall. Even if the person is feeling refreshed and cheerful, this condition will create a tired and sad look on the face. If an individual wants their outer appearance to match with the way feel from within, they may be a good candidate for brow lift.
The candidate should be in good general health and have a positive state of mind and clear aesthetic goals. They should be a non-smoker or have the commitment to stop smoking for a specified time period before and after the brow lift surgery as per the surgeon’s instructions.
