When signs of aging become more prominent, cosmetic surgery may be an option to reverse these signs. While a facelift is a great option to treat the mid-face, jowls, and neck, it does not address the forehead or eyebrow position. Many patients also complain of sagging brows and a tired or angry appearance of the peri-orbital region.
If you feel that your sagging brows are making you look older or more tired than you feel, then a brow lift in Fort Worth may be an option for you. Often this procedure is combined with a blepharoplasty for optimal rejuvenation of the pre-orbital region. This surgery tightens the skin and underlying muscles to rejuvenate the appearance of your upper face. Many factors, including skin elasticity, can affect the results of your procedure, so it is important to schedule a consultation where Dr. Steele can listen to your goals and assess whether this procedure is right for you.
People in Fort Worth undergo brow lift surgery for various reasons. A brow lift can correct numerous cosmetic and medical concerns, including:
In many cases, a brow lift may be combined with a facelift procedure to complete a full facial rejuvenation. Pairing these procedures will maximize your overall improvements and reduce recovery time. Dr. Steele can help you determine whether combining a brow lift with a facelift is an option for you during your initial consultation.
There are two types of brow lift surgery that individuals in Fort Worth could undergo: traditional hairline or limited incision. A traditional brow lift approach requires a more extensive incision across the hairline to address the excess skin and overactive muscle. Alternatively, a limited incision approach uses a 5 cm (2 inches) incision in the lateral scalp to elevate the outer brow into a more aesthetically pleasing position. Different approaches are better suited for different patients, as Dr. Steele can explain.
With either the traditional or limited approach to surgery, a brow lift operation tightens and repositions the underlying muscles and the skin above. Dr. Steele trims extra, loose skin away from the forehead before lifting the skin upward to tighten it. This minimizes wrinkles and skin laxity while raising the eyebrows’ position on the forehead to make the eyes appear more youthful.
The recovery after either approach typically takes a few weeks.
Aging signs may be indicative of a life well-lived. While many choose to embrace the changes that come with age, others would rather minimize wrinkles, loose skin around the eyes, and drooping eyebrows that give an angry or tired appearance. If you are ready for a refresh and are looking for long-term results, a brow lift in Fort Worth will smooth and tighten the forehead’s skin and muscles to revitalize your appearance.
While most forehead lift patients are typically in their 40s, 50s, or 60s, this procedure can be a great option for anyone dealing with deep wrinkles and skin laxity of the forehead.
