Benefits of a Brow Lift
Often times, happy and friendly individuals reveal their personalities with animated facial expressions. Over time, these repeated movements, paired with gravity and the natural aging process, can cause brows to sag and become furrowed even when the face is at rest.
Subsequently, these women and men begin to look angry or sad, and their faces no longer match their emotions.
Fortunately, a brow lift is a safe and effective way to elevate the brows to restore a cheerful, refreshed, and youthful appearance.

What Is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift is a surgical procedure that addresses gravitational effects of aging including forehead wrinkles and skin laxity in the upper 1/3 of the face.
What Are the Benefits of a Brow Lift?
One of the key benefits of a brow lift is that it can rejuvenate your appearance so that it matches your true disposition. In fact, the treatment is an excellent option for patients that are bothered by a heavy brow that presents a sad or angry expression.
It can also correct a saggy outer brow, laxity in the central portion of the brows, and droopy eyebrows that extend over upper eyelids.
Plus, it can successfully eradicate forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and furrows, and is well-suited for individuals that want more a permanent smoothing-solution in this area of the face.
How Is a Brow Lift Performed?
A classic brow lift involves making an incision from ear to ear and excising skin in the hair bearing region or brow line.
With an endoscopic brow lift, small incisions are made in the scalp and surgical dissection is performed using an endoscope. The brow is elevated under the skin and held in position with sutures or absorbable implants.
A mini brow lift is similar to a classic brow lift, but incisions stay on the sides of the face/hair region.
Depending on the degree of sagging, some patients may elect to undergo a non-surgical Botox brow lift, which relaxes the muscles that are pulling brows downward.
