Facial skin loses elasticity and gains wrinkles with age, causing drooping brows as well as creases and lines that can give you a sad, old or tired appearance. Many factors can intensify those negative effects, including sun exposure, weight fluctuations and heredity. A forehead lift can address these problems by surgically altering the muscles and tissues that cause wrinkling and/or drooping in the area above the eyes.
Browlift is most commonly used to minimize the appearance of aging in people over the age of 40. It can also help people of any age who have developed furrows or frown lines due to stress or muscle activity. The surgeon elevates the skin and underlying tissues of the upper face, and may remove part of the muscle that causes frown lines between the brows.
The result is a more youthful, relaxed, and refreshed appearance. People with inherited conditions, such as a low, heavy brow or furrowed lines above the nose can also achieve a more alert and refreshed look with this procedure.
