Is a Brow Lift Right for You?

If you’ve been noticing sagging in the forehead, a “heavy brow,” or even heaviness around the eyes, you might think a facelift is in order—but many times, you’d actually benefit from a brow lift. Dr. Sudeep Roy of RefinedMD specializes in brow lifts, facelifts, and eyelid lifts for a comprehensive solution to aging. Many people are surprised to learn that facelifts exclusively focus on the lower half of the face and neck. If you’re concerned with droopiness and wrinkles on the upper half, and particularly around the brow, a brow lift is probably a better choice for you.

Brow lifts make you look instantly more alert, naturally younger, and brighter. The thin skin around the eyes, and including the brows, is particularly susceptible to early signs of aging. This droopiness can make you look tired and even angry. Many patients benefit from combining a brow lift with an eyelid lift (upper eyelid lift, lower eyelid lift, or both). Some patients opt to include a facelift, too. The best procedures for you will depend on the current state of your skin and your goals.

There are various types of brow lifts, but all feature incisions that are easily hidden near the hairline. You never have to worry about visible scarring or looking “overdone” when you trust a quality cosmetic surgeon. Today’s brow lifts use the latest techniques so that the results are gorgeous but natural-looking. The people in your life will definitely notice you look happier and refreshed, but will never suspect surgery is the cause—and those are the results you deserve.

The Brows Have It

It’s no secret that today it’s all about the brows. From microblading for a thicker, fuller, more youthful brow to having “brow goals” trending on social media, we’re paying more attention to the brow area than ever before. However, for those with a heavy, droopy brow, you’ve probably been focusing on diverting attention from this area. A brow lift removes excess skin and elevates the brows so you can properly frame your face with beautiful brows.

Many people who opt for brow lifts are facing signs of aging, but any healthy adult may be a good fit for a brow lift. Sometimes genetics plays a role, and sometimes excessive furrowing of the brows or squinting can lead to early wrinkles or sagging in the forehead and brow. No matter your age, if you feel like your brows would benefit from elevation, it’s worthwhile to schedule a consultation with your local, leading brow lift expert.

How Long Do Brow Lifts Last?

Unlike temporary solutions like Botox (which can slightly elevate brows for a few months), technically a brow lift lasts a lifetime. Cosmetic surgeries are permanent. However, the aging process will continue. Brow lift patients can expect to enjoy their results for many years and even decades, but no cosmetic surgery stops the overall signs of aging.

There are best practices you can follow to extend the results of a brow lift. It all starts with a personalized skin care routine, and your doctor can help you create a regimen that works for you. Taking care of the skin around the eyes is critical. It’s also important to stop or avoid smoking, as this is a major cause of early aging and wrinkles. Non-surgical solutions such as chemical peels help sustain the results of cosmetic surgery on the face and can be a great maintenance treatment a few years after treatment. Finally, other non-surgical solutions like injections can also boost or maintain results.

It’s the start of a new decade and you deserve to embrace your best self.
