You might appear tired, angry or sad, but you’re actually happy and full of life. Why the contradiction? Because the effects of time, sun, wind and gravity may have caused your face to develop frown lines, deep-set creases in your forehead, sagging brows and heaviness in the eyelids. There’s no reason to come off as a sourpuss. A number of different methods can be used in this surgery, and Dr. Adams is expert in communicating the best approach for you.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a type of plastic surgery designed to uplift the appearance of your forehead and brow line. This technique focuses on the skin above your brows, smoothing the effects of gravity, aging and heredity. Dr. Adams can recommend a technique that’s minimally invasive cause less downtime with significant results.
Brow lifts typically focus on the brow line and the facial skin above this line. During the procedure, Dr. Adams will trim away excess muscle, fat and skin. In some cases, the eyebrows are lifted to a higher position on the forehead. The remaining tissue will then be contoured to make your brow line appear smoother. Brow lifts are intended for patients with sagging or wrinkles above their eyes. Some of the changes that can result from a brow lift include:
- Elevating droopy brows
- Smoothing deep forehead creases
- Smoothing lines between the eyebrows (frown lines)
- Removing excess forehead skin
If you are considering a brow lift, Dr. Adams will help you to decide whether this is the right procedure to achieve your goals. Often, brow lift surgery is combined with other procedures, such as an eyelid lift to reduce sagging and wrinkling around the eyes. If you’re looking to change the appearance of other areas of your face, such as your jawline or cheeks, you may be better served by facelift surgery.
Do you look like you’re frowning or upset when you’re really not? If you feel that your brow line makes you look tired, angry, or older than your true age, you could benefit from a brow lift. This surgery is popular among both men and women. Many of Dr. Adams’ patients chose a brow lift because they were starting to see the effects of aging, such as sagging eyebrows and visible forehead lines. Other younger patients just happened to have inherited a heavy brow line. If you are over the age of 40, this popular procedure could significantly improve your appearance.
