Nearly everyone has heard of a brow lift surgery. Yet, few know exactly what a brow lift does. The name may seem straightforward, but a brow lift does more than lift the eyebrows. Among one of the questions we see in consultations is what does a brow lift do?
A brow lift is a plastic surgery that addresses aging in the upper third of the face. This area encompasses the space between the eyebrows and hairline. Due to the importance of the forehead and brows in showing emotion, this area tends to show age quickly. Like the jowls and lower face, the brows can sag. However, a common concern of this area is the formation of deep wrinkles.
BOTOX can prevent and treat wrinkles. Skin will eventually thin and other aspects of aging will begin to affect the area in ways that BOTOX cannot treat. Dr. Santos can then perform a brow lift to remove extra skin and tighten the facial structures for a more youthful look. Many patients can continue with BOTOX following a brow lift surgery.
After a brow lift in Seattle, any sagging of the brows or upper face is gone or minimized. Patients may also find that their forehead looks smoother; wrinkles are not as prominent or no longer present.
