The eyes are often the first place to show signs of aging and the brows are a crucial component to the overall appearance of the eyes. In cases where low brows are causing the eyes to look puffy and tired, a brow lift is recommended.
Many patients lift their brows subconsciously to reduce heaviness on the eyelids, causing wrinkles to appear in the forehead. The constant effort can also cause headaches and forehead fatigue. Surgery to lift the brow may be combined with eyelid lift surgery.
Brow & Forehead Lift – Before & After
What to Expect
A surgical brow lift elevates the eye brows away from the eyes, tightens the forehead, and smoothes the frown area permanently. As with any surgery, swelling and bruising may occur and usually subsides within the first week or two. Serious complications are rare.
A non-surgical brow lift is performed using Thermage FLX®. It is an in-office procedure that produces a subtle, immediate result that continues to evolve and improve over the ensuing six months. Thermage FLX® involves no downtime and has very rare, if any, side effects.
