Am I a Good Candidate for a Brow Lift?
By Sheryl Pilcher on February 07, 2017
When people first notice fine lines and wrinkles developing, they may feel a little bit of pride knowing that they’ve earned those lines through wisdom and experience. But as the number of lines increase, and as the wrinkles begin to deepen, most wonder how they can reverse these effects of aging.
Plastic surgery allows patients to do just that. By tightening and smoothing the skin, patients can enjoy a more youthful outer appearance that better matches the energy and vitality they feel on the inside.
One popular facial cosmetic surgery is the brow lift. A brow lift tightens and smooths the skin of the brow line and forehead to revitalize the appearance of the face. For those who are ideal brow lift candidates, treatment at our San Antonio, TX practice can be safe and effective.
Brow Lift Procedure
When people think of facial plastic surgery, one of the first procedures that comes to mind is a facelift. A facelift is effective in tightening and defining the features of the lower face. However, many patients are concerned with lines, creases, and sagging skin around the eyes and upper face. A brow lift can address these types of concerns.
During a brow lift procedure Dr. Pilcher makes small incisions in the skin along the hairline. These incisions allow Dr. Pilcher to remove excess skin, make necessary manipulations to the underlying facial muscles, and pull the skin tight before closing the incisions with sutures. Overall, a brow lift can smooth and lift the skin from the brow line, all the way up to the hairline, giving patients a more alert, refreshed, and youthful appearance.
Brow Lift Candidates
As with any plastic surgery procedure, safety is the first priority when determining candidacy for a brow lift. It is important that any patient who is considering undergoing brow lift surgery be in good overall health and free of any medical conditions that may increase the risk of surgical complications. It is also important that the patient is in a good place emotionally, and has realistic expectations for the results of surgery. Finally, the patient must be willing to devote the necessary time to brow lift recovery, as well as adhere to all the post-surgical care instructions provided by Dr. Pilcher.
If these guidelines are met, a brow lift should be ideal for patients with any of the following aesthetic concerns:
- Horizontal lines and creases across the forehead
- Droopy skin along the forehead
- Low, saggy eyebrows
- Vertical lines between the eyes
- A constant appearance of being worn down, tired, or angry
A brow lift can address all of these concerns to help patients achieve the more youthful appearance they desire.
