Brow Lift

A heavy, sagging brow can make a person appear tired, angry and far older. Unfortunately, the forehead and brow area are among the first places to show the signs of aging. Exposure to the elements, the effects of gravity, and loss of skin elasticity over time often leads to forehead wrinkles, frown lines and drooping brows that can add years to a person’s appearance. At Schaffer Plastic Surgery in Birmingham, AL, Dr. Christopher Schaffer performs brow lift surgery to lift the brow, smooth away wrinkles, and restore a more youthful appearance.

What Is a Brow Lift?

Also called a forehead lift, the brow lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed to rejuvenate the face above the eyes and create a refreshed appearance. In this procedure, the plastic surgeon removes excess, sagging skin and repositions underlying muscles and tissue to eliminate deep furrows, lift the brow, and restore a smoother, more youthful appearance to the upper section of the face.

Benefits of a Brow Lift in Birmingham

An aging forehead can have a dramatic effect on facial appearance and expressions. Furrows, sagging, and heaviness in the brow area can give the impression that a person is constantly tired, worried or angry.

A brow lift procedure can:

  • Smooth away vertical lines between the eyebrows and grooves on the forehead: Removing excess skin and tissue and lifting the brow can significantly reduce frown lines and horizontal lines on the brow.
  • Reduce the tired, angry look and make you appear more approachable: Raising the brow and smoothing away lines on the forehead and between the eyebrows can help create a happier, more relaxed, and friendlier appearance, which could make you appear more approachable to others.
  • Open up the eyes: A sagging brow can impact the appearance of the upper lids in many cases. Lifting the brow can open up the eye area for a more alert and youthful look.
  • Produce dramatic, long-lasting results: BOTOX and dermal fillers can be used to reduce the appearance of scowl lines and wrinkles on the forehead and make the brow appear lifted. However, they are limited as to results and must be repeated periodically. A brow lift offers long-term correction with dramatic, natural-looking, long-lasting results.
