A brow lift is a facial plastic surgery that corrects sagging of the brows. Many men and women receive brow lifts every year. However, when it comes to their goals and results, brow lifts for men vs. women tend to differ. Dr. David Santos of Seattle Plastic Surgery performs multiple brow lifts every year on a diverse set of patients. Therefore, he understands the small nuances between men and women and their goals for brow lift surgery.
Brow Lifts On Women
A woman’s brow tends to have a higher position and arched appearance. This means that women with brow sagging often require more of a lift and correction. Luckily, modern technology makes brow lifts less invasive with the use of an endoscope. This cuts down on trauma to the skin and tissue as well as surgical time. In turn, patients often enjoy a shorter recovery after an endoscopic brow lift.
Brow Lifts For Men
In contrast to a woman’s brow, men tend to have lower and less arched features. This makes men more susceptible to upper eyelid sagging, an upper eyelid surgery and brow lift can address this. Many men fear looking “feminine” after a brow lift. Botched brow lifts on men are typically due to overcorrection, or using brow lift techniques meant for women.
The procedure requires careful precision and understanding of how brow lifts for men vs. women work. Dr. Santos will take his time to customize your Seattle brow lift. To schedule a consultation, call us at 206-324-1120 or contact us online.
