As we age, things start to sag or droop downwards. We lose facial fat and skin elasticity over the years, especially after the age of 40. While everyone ages differently and genetics and lifestyle play roles in the aging process, eventually time catches up to each one of us.
If your face has changed and you no longer look “fresh” and “youthful” like you did in your twenties, you may be thinking, “Hm, maybe it’s time to consider cosmetic surgery, but where do I begin?” The right answer will depend on a variety of factors, such as your age, skin elasticity, and of course, your individual goals.
A Brow Lift May Be an Option
If you’re considering Botox, injectables, or a facelift, a brow lift may be another procedure to look into. Brow lift surgery, also called a “forehead lift” addresses the area above the eyes. It rejuvenates the face, making it look younger and more refreshed. It smooths lines and softens wrinkles, creating a more youthful contour above the brow. If you like Botox but aren’t sure if it’s enough, a brow lift may offer a longer-lasting solution.

Why Choose a Brow Lift?
We already know a brow lift can provide longer-lasting results than injectables like Botox, but it can affect make us look happier too. The issue is that an aging forehead can impact facial expressions. It can make someone look angry, worried, or like they’re constantly tired. It can make someone look like they’re frowning, even when they’re happy. So, a brow lift can address that, making a patient look more alert and no longer angry or worried.
