5 Remarkable Benefits of a Brow Lift

As you age, skin loses its elasticity, and wrinkles, creases, and lines appear. You may find skin sags in ways that make you look tired, angry, or just old before your time.

A brow lift offers a solution to drooping, wrinkled skin on your forehead and around your eyes. By raising the soft tissue and skin of your forehead, plastic surgeon Dr. Husam Elias of Southern California Center for Surgical Arts revitalizes your appearance so you look younger, more alert, and greatly relaxed.

When exploring cosmetic solutions to an aging face, consider a brow lift for these five remarkable benefits.

Look happier

A sagging brow, along with forehead creases and lines between your brows, can make you look permanently angry or grumpy, even when you’re not. With a brow lift, your expression brightens and wrinkles smooth out so you look more approachable and relaxed.

Enjoy wrinkle-free skin

One of the first areas of your face that show the signs of aging is the area around the forehead and between your brows. Deep furrows from years of inquisitive looks and frowns cause creases and fine lines to form. A brow lift removes excess skin and tightens what remains so your frown lines and worry lines disappear. Your brow looks smooth and youthful as a result.

Open drooping lids

As you age, the delicate skin on the eyelids may begin to droop. This can create a hooded look that makes you look tired, interferes with vision, and makes it difficult to apply makeup (if you wear it). 

While an eyelift, called blepharoplasty, specifically targets the eyelids, a brow lift in conjunction with it opens up your eye area so you look alert, focused, and youthful. Sometimes, a brow lift alone – without an eyelift – is enough to make a dramatic change in the way your eyes look.

Appear as well-rested as you feel

Hooded eyelids and a furrowed brow can make you appear tired, even if you feel rested and energetic. A brow lift allows you to reflect your real energy levels so you appear engaged and alert.

Get long-lasting results

While Botox injections may smooth forehead lines, their effects are temporary – lasting just 3-4 months. Dermal fillers may help you raise a sagging brow line, but start to wear off in as soon as six months. Repeat injections are needed to maintain the effects.

With a brow lift, you get long-term correction for creases, sagging, drooping, and lines. When combined with good skin care and sun protection, your results can last up to 10 years. During the procedure, Dr. Elias removes excess skin and adjusts the underlying structure to create a long-term youthful look.

Your forehead and brows make up a full third of your face. How these areas look make an impression on those around you.
