A brow lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that lifts the forehead skin. As we age, our foreheads begin to sag. This can be caused by excess amounts of fatty tissue or the effects of gravity. Frown lines often appear between the brows, making us look tired or very serious. Skin resurfacing techniques often do not solve this problem because healthier skin growth does not remove the fatty tissue, nor does smoother skin remain taut if the supportive tissues that lie beneath have become weakened.
A brow lift solves the problem because the excess skin is removed. This reduces the appearance of forehead wrinkles and horizontal folds. We recommend this procedure for those who are generally in good health and are concerned about their facial appearance, particularly the existence of age-related skin folds above the eyes.
Who is a Candidate for a Brow Lift?
Depending on the amount of wrinkling and the thickness of the skin, a brow lift may completely or partially minimize the appearance of fine lines and forehead folds. This is why we recommend a consultation so that we can look closely at the forehead features. We may ask the client to perform several facial expressions so that we can determine to what extent a brow lift can help.
The consultation will also help us decide how the procedure will be performed. This decision is made after identifying the cause of the skin folds and their exact location. Regardless of the technique used, most brow lift procedures involve pulling the skin and/or tissue upward and removing and/or repositioning excess skin.
What the Client Should Know
Before the brow lift procedure is performed, we will give our client instructions on how to best prepare. We need to know the individual’s medical history, including any medications currently being taken. Some medicines and painkillers may have to be avoided for a short time prior to the surgery.
