Aging is a natural part of growing older, but there are ways to prevent aging early by implementing proper diet habits, exercise routines, and skincare regimes into your lifestyle. If you’ve noticed signs of aging, however, and are looking for ways to reduce its effects, there are a few procedures that can revive a more youthful appearance.
A brow lift is one of these ways to restore a youthful appearance by reversing a heavy brow line or wrinkled forehead. These signs of aging can make you look older than you feel by making you appear tired, upset, or stressed. If you’re considering a brow lift to rejuvenate the upper face, it’s important to look at both the surgical and non-surgical options available as well as the pros and cons of each.
What Is a Surgical Brow Lift?
According to the Orange Country Facial Plastic Surgery Clinic, a surgical brow or forehead lift is “intended to reposition the tissue of the upper face to a higher, more youthful location and reduce excess skin.” There are different forms of surgical brow lifts, but often the most common is the endoscopic brow lift, which involves a few small incisions to minimize scarring.
Some of the concerns that a surgical brow lift addresses include horizontal forehead lines, sagging skin, crow’s feet, and vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows. This procedure may also help to lift drooping eyelids.
