Am I a Candidate for a Brow Lift?

The average forehead takes up about one-third of the space on its face, more than any other facial feature. And because foreheads tend to be smooth and featureless throughout our youth, they tend to be one of the first places the signs of aging become noticeable. If the skin on your forhead has begun sagging downward, you may want to consider a brow lift.

The lateral brow lift is a fairly quick and simple procedure, often requiring only 90 minutes to finish. Its goal is to tighten the skin around the eyebrows, giving your face a more pleasing expression and hiding evidence of any sagging in the forehead. It may be helpful to have the surgery done in conjunction with a forehead lift or Botox injections.

Candidates for a brow lift might have one of the following issues:

  • loose skin in the forehead
  • sagging “sad” eyebrows
  • a facial expression that looks angry even when it’s neutral
  • lines or creases in the forehead from age or stress
  • excess skin between the eyes and eyebrows

If you meet any of these criteria, and you have a healthy outlook and realistic expectations for the procedure, then a lateral brow lift could be the right step for you!
