Drooping brows can make your face look dull and tired, causing others to misread your emotional state and your age. You don’t have to look tired all the time when you can get a brow lift done to correct your sagging eyebrows. The results of this simple plastic surgery procedure can be quite remarkable.

Why Come In for a Brow Lift?

No matter how flawless your facial skin is, dull and limp eyebrows can leave your face looking weary and lifeless. And droopy eyebrows don’t just make the face look dull – they also drastically change one’s facial expression. If there is a sag in the corner of your brows, it can give your face a permanently sad look. A drooping center of the eyebrow causes you to look angry.

When the brows are lifted to a more natural position, these issues are taken care of. This procedure makes the face look more positive and alert, younger, and full of life.

If you have premature signs of aging like wrinkles or fine lines in the forehead near your brows, a brow lift can be used to correct the lines. Even crow’s feet and frown lines can be corrected with this procedure.

If your upper eyelids seem to have excess sagging skin, a minor correction above the brows can correct the condition. It can also be paired with blepharoplasty surgery when the eyelid sagging is more severe.

A brow lift can be combined with a facelift procedure in order to achieve a great deal of facial rejuvenation. This can include reduction of excess skin in the upper, mid, and lower face.

The Brow Lift Procedure

To begin the brow lift procedure, either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation is administered to the patient. The choice of anesthesia to use during this procedure is made in advance as part of the preliminary consultation with the surgeon.

Next, either within or at the hairline, a single incision is made reaching from one ear to the other. Excess skin and other tissues are removed as needed to smooth out the region and raise the brows. Once this is done, the incision is sutured closed with surgical stitches.

Even for those with eyebrows that are extremely dull and droopy, this surgery can work wonders. A lot of changes can be made in the skin and muscles of the brow area if needed.
