Who is a Good Candidate for a Brow Lift?
- Posted on: Apr 30 2020
Recently, people have begun to become more aware of the way their eyes affect their entire appearance. We look to the eyes as a sign of friendliness, vitality, and emotion. When aging makes the eyes look heavy and closed off, a person can look more fatigued and closed-off than they truly are. Aging eyes can be addressed in a variety of ways. Sometimes, the best way to refresh this part of the face is with a brow lift.
Brow lift surgery may also be called a forehead lift or eyebrow lift. The procedure involves repositioning the muscles and tissues on the upper part of the face to restore proper height to the eyebrows. Youthfulness is indicated by a brow line that sits just above or on the upper orbital rim on the female face. On the male face, the brow line may sit along or just below the upper orbital rim. When the brow line falls below this point, it can compress the delicate tissue on the upper eyelid.

Every face has its own unique structure, which we consider as we determine the best brow lift technique to use for each patient.
What Makes Someone a Good Candidate for a Brow Lift?
Several factors may make a person a good brow lift candidate. Primarily, brow lifts are ideal for people who exhibit the signs of aging including frown lines, worry lines on the forehead, creases at the outer corners of the eyes, heavy upper eyelids, or drooping eyebrows. The eyebrows may droop more at the outer or inner edges, making the face look sad or angry.
There is no ideal age for brow lift surgery. Some people have inherited low-lying eyebrows and wish to have them lifted to give their face a more friendly and open appearance. Ideal candidates are in good health, do not smoke, and can understand the potential and limitations of this procedure. Smokers can undergo plastic surgery but will need to avoid tobacco and nicotine use for several weeks before their procedure and throughout their recovery.
