One of the most obvious signs of age develops as the brow droops downward on the face. A slumped, or overly-furrowed brow can make you look exhausted or unfriendly. A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure designed to raise your eyebrows and solve this problem. Facial procedures such as a brow lift are one of the top services at The Maercks Institute in Miami, and after undergoing this surgery, patients say that they feel more confident and youthful.
A brow lift makes you look younger
If your goal is to achieve a more conventionally attractive, friendly, and refreshed appearance, a brow lift could be your answer to looking younger. The procedure reduces wrinkles, improves frown lines, and places the eyebrows in a youthful position. Reduced forehead wrinkle lines, as well as reduced wrinkle lines on the bridge of the nose between the eyes, go a long way in making you look younger with smoother skin. Another benefit to a brow lift is that you get corrected “hooding” of the eyes, which happens when the eyebrow and soft tissue surrounding the eyes sag and cause a bulge that can hide the upper eyelid. Your eyes will appear more opened and enhanced, crow’s feet will be reduced, and you receive a more refreshed and youthful appearance overall.
Tightened facial skin and muscles are what turn back the clock
As we age, unsightly wrinkle lines may appear on the forehead, which continue to deepen as the years go by. Because the forehead is also one of the most expressive parts of your face, it is, unfortunately, the most vulnerable to fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and poor skin elasticity.
This becomes a problem because frown lines between brows can make us look angry, "too serious," or older than we are. If skin relaxation causes the eyebrows to drop, hooding our upper eyelids and making us look tired and old, skin tightening is the answer to turning back the clock and achieving a more youthful facial appearance. With the help of a brow lift, you can tighten the skin and muscles on your forehead to get rid of those creases.
Brow lift results are impactful and long-lasting
By raising the soft tissue and skin of your forehead and brow, a brow lift can give you the impactful and age-defying results you want. Early results from your brow lift will be visible at about three weeks, with final results appearing around four months. Once you fully recover and your results are finalized, you can enjoy a more refreshed and youthful appearance for many years. While treated wrinkles can and will return over time, they will no longer be as deep and wide as before your brow lift, helping you defy the aging process for the long term.
You can combine a brow lift with other procedures for extra anti-aging benefits
A brow lift will visibly improve the look of your forehead and your entire face. The lift will raise your eyebrows, making you appear younger, more awake, and happy and friendly. With this in mind, some people decide to do multiple procedures at once to achieve optimal results. The following procedures can be done at the same time as a brow lift:
- Skin resurfacing
- Upper or lower eyelid surgery
