There are some things in life that are obvious like looking both ways before you cross the street and wearing a seat belt every time that you get in the car. There are other things, however, that are also less obvious like when you may need to get a brow lift. If you want to continue looking young and feeling young while aging gracefully, then a brow lift may be one of the things that you should consider getting done. But, because it’s not always so easy to identify when you will need one, let’s take a closer look.
Your Forehead Is Wrinkled
Having a few fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead are easily treated with Botox, but if you notice that you need a lot of Botox or if you feel like your fine lines and wrinkles have gotten deeper, then we may recommend a brow lift. During a brow lift or a forehead lift, we will list and tighten the skin on the forehead and around the browline to give patients a more youthful appearance.
Your Eyelids Aren’t Droopy
One of the things that patients often mistake for needing a brow lift is blepharoplasty. Often, patients start to lose elasticity in the skin below the eyebrows and above the eyes, which can lead to droopiness. Although you may think that an eyebrow lift would help with that, it’s actually an upper blepharoplasty. If your eyelids aren’t droopy and the skin under your eyebrows are in good shape, but your forehead and above your browline need a little bit of help, then you can tell that you may need a brow lift.
