As a result of the aging process, we see changes in the upper face which include forehead creases, drooping eyebrows and the hooding over the eyes and frown lines. Often this gives patients an impression of looking tired, older or even angry. A brow lift is designed to correct all of these aging features, restoring a more youthful, rested appearance with uplifted contours which look natural and not obvious. Reversing these changes and creating a better facial balance can be achieved with a forehead or brow lift.
For the majority of patients, their desired outcome can be achieved using modern endoscopic techniques and small incisions hidden within the hair line. This endoscopic technique is sometimes called a mini brow lift. Some patients may require a full brow lift or direct brow lift to achieve the best result.
There are non-surgical options as well, like BOTOX® injections. These injections relax the muscles in the forehead, easing the tension that causes brow wrinkles. Dr. Clark, a board-certified plastic surgeon with advanced cosmetic training and experience, will perform a complete evaluation and discuss which option would be best for you.
I always strive to achieve results that enhance each person’s natural beauty while preserving individuality and uniqueness. I aim for a sense of personal harmony, culminating in patients who still look like themselves – only better!
– Steven J. Clark, MD, DMD
We often evaluate the eyes and position of the brow together. For some patients, an eyelid liftmay also be recommended to achieve their desired result. Others may benefit from a faceliftand/or necklift, allowing for facial rejuvenation in the upper, mid and lower face.
