A brow lift, also called a forehead lift or eyebrow lift, corrects the skin wrinkling and loss of tone that causes sagging of eyebrows and hooding of upper eyelids. A brow lift softens the deep creases across the forehead, reduces horizontal frown lines at the top of your nose and vertical lines between your brows. The result is a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. It is the only procedure that can increase the distance from the lateral brow to the upper eyelashes.
A brow lift is often performed along with a face lift or other facial rejuvenation procedures. Some people have brow lifts to correct aging problems, while others have inherited traits that cause them to seek treatment in their 20s or 30s. You may be a good candidate for a brow lift if you have any of the following types of conditions:
- If you have drooping lateral brows that are close to or below your orbital bony rim
- If you feel you always look angry or scowling
- If you like your appearance and your brows and eyelids when you pull up your forehead with your fingers at your hairline above your lateral brows
- If you desire the ideal benefits of facial rejuvenation and you are already considering a face and neck lift
