If you have ever looked in the mirror and thought you looked older, unhappier, or more tired than you actually are, it may be due to a heavy brow.

Keep reading for a closer look at the benefits of brow lift surgery, and find out whether you may qualify for this popular facial rejuvenation procedure.

My eyebrows make me look angry

A heavy brow or drooping forehead can certainly impact your image and often makes a person look upset, worn out, tired, or simply older than they actually are. In many cases, this is caused by a descent of the brow due to aging, gravity, genetics, and other factors, while some patients have had a naturally heavy, strong, or low brow line throughout their lives. In either case, brow lift surgery can be a fantastic option for softening and refreshing your face.

What does a brow lift do?

Also known as a forehead lift, the brow lift is a highly beneficial facial surgery that aims to lift and tighten the brow to give patients a smoother, lighter, and more youthful appearance in the upper face. Common concerns that can be significantly improved or even reversed with brow lift surgery include:

  • Heavy brow
  • Drooping brow
  • Forehead lines
  • Furrowed brow
  • Lines between the brows
  • Downturned eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Hooded eyes

Who qualifies for brow lift surgery?

Ideal candidates for brow lift surgery should be in good health, nonsmokers, and have moderate to severe signs of upper facial aging, including those listed above. During your initial consultation for a forehead lift in Beverly Hills or Las Vegas, Dr. Myint will carefully examine your upper face, discuss your personal goals and concerns, and explain all of your options at length. Depending on your facial structure, skin laxity, degree of concerns, and other factors, Dr. Myint may recommend one of the following types of brow lift surgery:

  • Traditional brow lift
  • Trichophytic brow lift
  • Lateral brow lift
  • Endoscopic brow lift

Perhaps the most notable difference between each kind of brow lift surgery is the type and location of the incision used. Based on your concerns, your risk factors for a receding hairline, and other variables, Dr. Myint will recommend the most appropriate brow lift approach for you.

How long does a brow lift last?

Patients considering a brow lift should keep in mind that plastic surgery can’t completely halt the aging process, and subtle changes will occur over time. However, most men and women can enjoy their brow lift results for years, if not decades, when performed by a highly experienced surgeon.
