Having drooping eyebrows can stop those beautiful eyes of yours from standing out. They could also make you feel older than you are and affect your overall attitude towards life. With a simple plastic surgery known as a brow lift, people who have sagging skin around their eyes can greatly enhance them by removing the excess tissue and making them appear more vibrant and youthful.
What Is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift is often referred to as a forehead lift. The brow lift can help pull up your sagging brows, and removes deep furrows, making you look younger and rejuvenated. You can expect wrinkles on your forehead and on the bridge of the nose to reduce dramatically through this lift as well.
During the procedure, your doctor will lift the eyebrows to a higher, more youthful position, that will bring people’s focus back to your beautiful eyes.
The Best Candidates for a Brow Lift Surgery
A healthy, non-smoker is an ideal candidate for this surgery. It needs to be remembered that while the lift reduces wrinkles and can make you lose some years from your face, they aren’t going to completely go away. Also this type of lift only works on the upper portion of the face. If you are worried about lines under the eyes or have drooping eyelids, or have any other issues on the face that you want to correct, you can combine it with the brow lift.
Choosing the Right Surgeon
This is perhaps the most important step before going under the knife. Do ample research, ask for recommendations and go with the doctor with the best recommendations and one you feel comfortable with, even if the process may delay your procedure a bit.
• Always choose a skilled surgeon who has experience performing the procedure.
• Choose a surgeon you are comfortable with and someone who understands your your needs.
The choice of the surgeon will affect how you look after the surgery. A good surgery will make you look youthful and vibrant, whereas a bad surgery can make you look permanently worried or surprised. It may also give you an unnatural look that you will come to dread.
The Brow Lift Procedure
The traditional brow lift method requires the use of an anesthetic during the treatment process to help ease discomfort. An incision is made across the forehead below the hairline to gain access to the underlying issue.
The remaining skin is then pulled up in a way that the wrinkles diminish and eyebrows are raised to a better position. Then the excess skin is removed and the incisions are closed. This traditional technique is called coronal brow lift.
After the surgery is completed, a tube to drain out the excess blood and fluids maybe attached under the skin. It may take between 10 to 14 days for you to be able to resume work though it may take weeks for the swelling to completely go down and the incision lines to fade. Complete recovery should be expected in a couple of months.
The Benefits of a Brow Lift Surgery
The brow lift surgery is a safe and effective surgery procedure that can:
• Make you look and feel more youthful
