When looking at ourselves in the mirror, or at others for that matter, we are drawn to ones’ eyes. The eyes express how a person feels, however, as we age, how we feel on the inside isn’t always visible on aging face. Over time, the skin of the brow and muscles surrounding the eyes begin to sag, making us look tired, angry and older than we actually are. In extreme cases, these changes can even interfere with a person’s vision. If you want to look and feel refreshed and alert again while restoring a youthful appearance, a brow lift may be just right for you.
A brow lift, also referred to as a forehead lift is a relatively simple cosmetic surgery procedure which can have lasting effects for up to ten years. Brow lifts are a common response to the effects of aging, which can be seen in the areas around the eyes and brow.
Brow lifts are most often performed on both men and women from ages 40 to 60 who are experiencing hooding of the upper eyelids and sagging and drooping of the brow.
While the brow lift will not halt the aging process, it can potentially decrease the visible signs of aging, while at the same time tightening and smoothing the muscles on the forehead and brow. In raising your eyebrows your brow lift will give you the appearance of looking more relaxed, younger and alert.
The brow lift is a beneficial cosmetic procedure that is utilized in connection with other cosmetic facial plastic surgery procedures, such as eyelid surgery and facelifts, to achieve the ultimate youthful look. The brow lift does not take long to recover from as the stitches can be removed as early as 7 to 10 days after the operation. Some patients may experience some bruising and numbness of the brow which is quite common, and will most likely disappear within a few days following surgery.
