5 Benefits of Brow Lift Surgery

The brow lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to rejuvenate the forehead and eyes for a naturally refreshed, youthful appearance. Although many patients worry that lifting and tightening their brows will create a consistent look of surprise, you will actually appear calmer and more rested. These are five reasons why we and our patients love brow lift surgery.

What is Brow Lift Surgery?

Brow lift surgery, sometimes called a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure that lifts sagging brows and smooths the skin on the forehead to rejuvenate a more youthful appearance. The muscles and facial tissues are tightened to lift sagging skin and smooth the skin above and around the eyes. At FacesFirst, we offer several different techniques such as the coronal brow lift and temporal brow lift. The specific technique used to perform brow lift surgery will vary depending on each patient’s specific needs and cosmetic goals.

Benefits of a Brow Lift

The brow lift improves signs of aging, restructures the face, and restores your natural youthful appearance. These are five benefits that brow lift patients can expect from board-certified plastic surgeons Drs. Picerno and Cote:

1. Tighten the Forehead

At FacesFirst, we use an endoscopic brow lift technique to tighten the muscles and underlying tissues through tiny incisions along the hairline. As we age, the skin and muscles naturally lose elasticity, and this leads to a sagging brow and a more aged or tired appearance. Tightening the muscles and underlying facial tissues lifts the brows for a smoother, more youthful look.

2. Smooth Forehead Wrinkles

As the forehead is lifted and tightened, vertical forehead lines, deep furrows between the brows, and crow’s feet around the eyes are smoothed. Glabellar lines have earned the nickname “frown lines” for a reason and by smoothing those deep lines between the brows, you can expect a more relaxed appearance.

3. Reposition the Brow Line

During the brow lift procedure, the eyebrows are moved back in line with the natural brow ridge, restoring the natural arch of your brows and a rejuvenated appearance. For women, this restores their brow arch for a softer, more feminine appearance compared to straight or narrowly arched brows.

4. Lift Sagging Eyes

Sagging skin on the forehead and upper eyelids weigh heavily on the eyes, creating a consistently tired or aged appearance. By improving the appearance of sagging or drooping eyes, you will look more energized and refreshed. Lifting the eyes also has the benefit of improving eyesight which might be impaired by sagging skin or low brows.

5. More Proportionate Facial Features

The shape of the brows changes your entire look. Eyebrows that sit low or lack an arch can give you an angry or sad appearance. Brow lift surgery moves the eyebrows up to prevent the eyes, brows, and nose from clustering together in a scrunched, angry appearance.
