It happens to all of us. Over time, the skin that keeps the upper portion of your face firm and youthful begins to succumb to the aging process, resulting in forehead wrinkles, sagging eyelids, vertical lines and puffiness between the eyes, and more. Many of us who find that we are experiencing various signs of aging notice a specific one that can change the entire shape of our face: the drooping brow line.
While small on their own, the effects of a sagging or drooping brow line can change the appearance of your entire face. It’s no surprise, then, that brow lifts are becoming one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the industry.
Not only can a brow lift improve the lift and appearance of your brow line itself, but it can do so much more. The brow lift procedure can also smooth out fine lines in your forehead, reduce or eliminate the appearance of sagging skin in the upper-half of the face, and improve the appearance of the bridge of your nose. People have even undergone brow lifts in the event that their eyelids unevenly sag or droop, improving both vision and appearance.
The brow lift procedure is so effective because it involves making one or two small incisions, depending on your needs, at the hairline that are then manipulated to smooth and tighten the skin. Most patients are candidates for insignificant incisions that can be conveniently hidden, so scarring is not terribly common among patients who undergo the brow lift procedure.
While the brow lift procedure is commonly followed by bruising and swelling immediately after surgery, most patients only need an average of 5-7 days to recover. The long-lasting results are worth every moment and you’re sure to feel more confident in your appearance after healing.
