Are you a good candidate for a brow lift?Posted on June 20, 2019
Wrinkles and aging lines on the forehead and between the brows can make an individual appear tired, angry or older.
Brow lift plastic surgery is a proven, safe, and effective procedure to create a smoother and more youthful upper face appearance.
At the time of the initial consultation, the surgeon will carefully evaluate the patient as a candidate for brow lift. Certain patients may require both brow lift and eyelid lift. Others may need limited correction involving a non-surgical Botox procedure.
The surgeon will provide suitable recommendations depending on the patient’s upper face structure and their unique aesthetic needs. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides forehead lift to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
A majority of people seeking brow lift surgery are over the age of 40. At this age, the lids and brow lines usually start to droop, and visible wrinkles and fine lines begin to become noticeable along the forehead.
If the problem is hereditary, some people may experience these issues in their 20s and 30s. People considering brow lift plastic surgery should have reasonable expectations and understand clearly what to expect from this procedure.
Initially, brow lift candidates often assume that they need eyelid lift surgery to improve the sagging above the eyes. Following a consultation with the plastic surgeon, they may understand that a brow lift could minimize such issues more effectively.
People with the below mentioned concerns are typically ideal brow lift candidates:
- Sagging brows
- Heavy upper eyelids
- Horizontal lines across the forehead
- Tired or angry appearance
- Deep furrows between the brows
Having Forehead Lines
Wrinkles and creases on the forehead may occur over the years because of repetitive expressions. A person may feel self-conscious due to the appearance of these obvious aging signs.
These deep lines can be treated with dermal fillers and Botox only temporarily. In case the candidate seeks a long-term treatment for forehead creases and the lines that develop across the nose bridge, they can consider brow lift cosmetic surgery.
Tired and Sad Appearance
The underlying forehead muscles may droop due to aging and create a less alert upper face appearance. This condition will also lead to the sagging of the brows and create a tired, sad facial appearance even if the person is feeling cheerful and refreshed.
For people who want their outer appearance to reflect the way they feel inside, brow lift surgery may be an appropriate option.
The candidate should be in good overall health and have a positive mindset as well as clear cosmetic goals. They should not smoke or be willing to quit smoking for a specified duration before and after the brow lift surgery according to the surgeon’s guidelines.
