Facial plastic surgery is for when you’re older, right? While many people get face and neck lifts or other procedures in their 60s and 70s, plenty of people are having these procedures at a younger age to reverse visible signs of aging. This goes for a brow lift especially.
A Brow Lift Can Be Best Before You’re “Old”
Signs of aging creep up on all of us. While you’re busy living your life, gravity is taking its toll to change your appearance in ways that are subtle from day-to-day but can add up significantly over the years. The fact is that many people in their 40s and 50s can see a much improved look with a brow lift procedure.
When the brow skin and tissue droops, it can cause hooding above the eyes. The position of the eyebrows also lowers, and deep wrinkling can occur where the forehead skin used to be smooth. The net effect is a tired or even sad looking appearance. All of these signs of aging can be corrected with a brow lift. By having a brow lift in middle age, you can enjoy the results for many years. In fact, many older patients who have brow lifts find that they wish they had their surgery sooner, since the refreshed look this surgery brings can be dramatic.
But Not Necessarily Too Young
Some people may benefit from a brow lift while in their 30s but there are many other options that tend to be a better fit for this age group.
- Eyelid Surgery – For many people, signs of aging on the upper and lower eyelids appear before significant drooping of the brow area. While eyelid surgery and a brow lift can be performed together, in some cases blepharoplasty, particularly upper eyelid surgery, can create the refreshed, youthful look you want without the effort of having to hide incisions in the hairline.
- Dysport® – If your main concern is vertical lines/wrinkles on your forehead, this injectable can give excellent results without surgery. A BOTOX competitor, Dysport temporarily relaxes the muscles responsible for the wrinkles caused by repeated facial movements. Forehead lines are one of the most common types of targeted wrinkles.
It’s a Personal Decision
If you are bothered by hooding above your eyes, sagging eyebrows, and/or forehead wrinkles, no matter what your age is, your best approach is to come in for a consultation. Dr. Davis can review your facial anatomy and discuss all the options that may work best for you.
