Brow Lifts: Surgical and Non-Surgical Options
When you see a random photo of yourself, are you surprised that your expression looks sad, tired or even angry, even when you were having a wonderful time? Age can add lines, wrinkles and a heaviness to your brow that can cause a perpetual change in expression. A brow lift can remove years from your appearance and give you back a happier, more energetic expression. There are two options: surgical and non-surgical, both with their own benefits.
Surgical Brow Lift
For a permanent improvement of the brow and forehead area, a surgical brow lift is a great option. For those with pronounced lines on their forehead or eyebrows that have sunk to overshadow the eyes, a brow lift can have a dramatic effect. A browlift can be combined with an eyelid lift to give you back a more youthful appearance. There are different options available, including minimally invasive procedures for quicker recovery and almost invisible incisions.
Non-Surgical Brow Lift
If you are hesitant to have cosmetic surgery or just want a slight improvement in your brow and forehead area, non-surgical browlift options are available. While these may be temporary, many injections like dermal fillers and Botox can last for months, even years. Botox can diminish the appearance of the “11” wrinkles between the eyebrows and forehead lines. Dermal fillers can reduce bags under the eyes and help with small lines that add years to your appearance and can make you look tired.
If you are ready to turn back the hands of time with a brow lift, contact your local facial plastic surgeon for a consultation. Both surgical and non-surgical brow lifts can have a dramatic impact your expression and help boost your self-confidence.
