Patients who suffer from a droopy brow that may cause an unhappy or aged appearance should consider brow lift surgery to meet their aesthetic needs.
Brow Lift, Facelift, or Botox?
Many times, the effects of aging take place in the forehead region alone. If wrinkles, loose skin, and sagging eyebrows exist on the forehead, then a brow lift may be sufficient. For drooping jowls and wrinkles along the lower area of the face, then another procedure such as a full facelift may be worth consideration. Sometimes these procedures can even be combined for maximum results.
If you’re wondering if Botox® would be enough to address your aesthetic concerns, you may be right. Botox is a great non-surgical option that can improve the wrinkles and fine lines of the forehead. However, it will not lift the forehead and improve sagging and drooping features if they exist. If you’re contemplating a brow lift, you may want to try Botox first and see if the results satisfy your cosmetic goals. If Botox proves ineffective, then a brow lift will probably help in this area.
This can be discussed in detail during your initial consultation.
