If gravity has taken a toll on the upper half of your face, and you have sagging brows and wrinkles across your forehead, you may want to think about having a brow lift. Nowadays,men and women are choosing to undergo plastic surgery at a younger age, so at what age is it best to consider a brow lift? A lot depends on your anatomy.
What is a brow lift?
A brow lift is a surgical procedure that is done to restore the natural contours to the forehead and upper eyebrows. It involves the raising of the eyebrows, as well as the tightening of the muscles and tissues of the forehead.
Best age for a brow lift
Doctors don’t all agree on the best age to undertake a brow lift, or any other type of plastic surgery, because it really depends on the individual. However, a brow lift is best suited for people with upper browptosis(drooping) of the brows.
A droopy brow is often the result of changes that take place due to aging, as the skin loses elasticity, and wrinkles and frown lines form in the forehead. A brow lift is generally recommended for people between the ages of 40-60 years. However, younger people with inherited conditions such as a low or heavy brow, sometimes opt to undergo a brow lift to refresh their appearance.
If you have signs of aging brows and are contemplating a brow lift, it’s best to consult with a knowledgeable plastic surgeon.
