Benefits of Eyebrow Lift Surgery

Facial plastic surgery can help rejuvenate your appearance. One type of procedure that could be beneficial for you is an eyebrow lift. This type of surgery lifts your brow and tightens the muscles in your forehead to reduce wrinkles in that area. Whether you have an endoscopic or coronal brow lift, the results can transform your face and help you look younger.

Here are some of the benefits of a brow lift:

Reverse Signs of Aging

Your forehead and eyebrows are often the first areas of your face to show signs of aging. You may notice a sagging brow that makes you seem angry or tired. Frown lines and other wrinkles in the skin of the forehead are also common concerns. If most of your wrinkles are on or near the top of your face, an eyebrow lift can make a dramatic improvement.

Reposition Brow Line

As you age, your brow line may begin to drop below your natural eyebrow ridge. This can affect how the rest of your face looks. A brow lift can return your eyebrows to their original positions, helping you look younger in the process.

Lasts Longer than Non-Surgical Methods

The results of a brow lift can last for several years. The exact length of time varies depending on the type of method (coronal vs endoscopic) and other factors. Comparatively, botulinum toxin injections, which can also help reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles, last for approximately three to four months. There are some situations where injectables are a more ideal solution, but an eyebrow lift does have the benefit of longevity. Our board-certified plastic surgeons can help determine what the best option is for your specific needs.

Eyebrow Lift vs Facelift

An eyebrow lift has similar benefits to a facelift or mini facelift. The best way to determine which to choose is to discuss your desired results with your surgeon. In general, brow lift surgery is suitable if your main concern is forehead wrinkles or a sagging brow line. A mini facelift, which is a less involved version of the full surgery, is a good fit for patients who are most interested in reducing wrinkles around their ears or jawline. Finally, a standard facelift is an ideal choice for total facial rejuvenation.

Other anti-aging surgeries or non-surgical treatments may be helpful depending on your circumstances and you can combine these with your brow lift. For example, if you notice sagging eyelids in addition to a lower brow line, you may wish to undergo blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery).
