As we get into our mid-30s and 40s, most of us start to notice the signs of gravity and life experiences on our skin…especially when we look in the mirror. One of those areas is the forehead, where deep furrows and lines form due to repetitive muscle activity; our eyebrows and lids may even start to sag a bit, making us look tired even though we’ve had a good night’s rest.
Now that you’re ready to do something about your forehead and brow area, you’re trying to decide if a brow lift or forehead lift is more appropriate for your needs and goals.
What to Keep in Mind
There is more than just one type of brow lift surgery or non-surgical option to consider (such as Botox and facial fillers.)
Some types of brow lifts have nothing to do with the skin on your forehead, but are more appropriate in issues involving ptosis (droopy eyelids.) Others, such as a pretrichial brow lift tighten the skin next to the hairline, lifting all of the forehead areas as well as the eyebrows.
There are variations of each type of brow and forehead lift, so it’s important to understand the advantages of each.
Let your oculoplastic surgeon know if you want to address issues such as:
- Nonsurgical alternatives
- Longer results
- Less invasive techniques
- Higher eyebrows
- Scarring (or location of the scars)
The only way you can know for certain which variation is right for you, is to talk with a trusted expert.
