Here’s Why a Brow Lift Can Help an Aging Face

The consequences of an aging face include wrinkles and sagging skin. No part on the body shows this more than the brow. Here, horizontal lines emerge, while the forehead droops, pushing the brows down into the eyes. These effects add up to a tired, worn, and older look. A sagging brow can also obstruct your vision.

A brow lift fights gravity by rejuvenating the upper face and lifting drooping eyebrows. It is one of our most popular cosmetic procedures at Connecticut Facial Plastic Surgery. Many of our patients combine eyelid surgery or a facelift with their brow lift to maximize facial enhancement.

Here’s how a brow lift helps our patients look younger and turns back the clock.

Reverse a Tired Appearance

Deep crevices along the forehead, lines between the eyebrows, and a sagging brow line can make a man or woman look older than their years. It can also produce a permanent scowl if not corrected, making you look angry all the time. Raising the brow and resolving those lines will give the patient a brighter, happier, and friendlier expression.

Smooth Over Facial Creases

Lifting the brow and removing excess tissue and skin can resolve those telltale signs of aging. Vertical lines between the eyebrows and horizontal lines across the brow disappear for a more youthful facial appearance.

Open the Eyes

A sagging brow may droop down over the eyes to obstruct vision and make it harder to apply makeup. Raising your brow will open your eyes, resulting in an alert and approachable appearance.

A Customized Procedure

If unwanted brow tissue is hanging over your eyes and making them look hooded, you might be an excellent candidate for a brow lift. If your upper eyelid skin is obscuring your vision, a lift, combined with a blepharoplasty, may solve this problem.

Here is a simple process to test if you are a candidate for an eyebrow lift. Looking in the mirror, gently use the tips of your index fingers to raise your eyebrows. If this trick improves your overall appearance, you could benefit from the procedure.

Long-Lasting Benefits

Injectable treatments like BOTOX® reduce creases, and dermal fillers can give the look of a raised brow. However, there are limits to what these treatments can achieve, so we typically only recommend them to patients with mild to moderate sagging skin and wrinkles on the upper face. They also require patients to return for periodic touch-ups to maintain results.

A brow lift offers long-term correction to facial creases, as well as sagging, drooping skin across the brow line. Your surgeon will excise excess skin and adjust the underlying musculature for a natural, youthful outcome. The results are dramatic and long-lasting.
