Drooping brows may cause you to appear angry, tired or older than you feel. In addition to other features on your upper face, the brow expresses a wide range of emotions. If you’ve noticed that your brow has started to sag as you’ve gotten older, you may be sending unintentional emotional signals that can affect your personal and professional interactions.

What Is a Brow Lift?
Sometimes called forehead lifts, brow lifts are facial surgery procedures designed to tighten the skin and tissues on the forehead to establish a more youthful, rested appearance. Some patients are concerned that brow lift surgery will cause them to look perpetually surprised. However, it’s important to realize that the goal of any cosmetic procedure is to help you appear naturally beautiful, not “worked on.”
Dr. Lee takes pride in his long-lasting reputation for excellence, and works diligently to ensure that every patient looks elegantly refreshed and revitalized.
During your brow lift, Dr. Lee will make minuscule incisions above the hairline and elevate the brow. This procedure will help to minimize the appearance of forehead furrows as tissues are affixed to their elevated positions.
Brow lifts can help restore your youthful beauty, but the procedure is functional as well. Drooping skin on your forehead can obstruct your vision by pushing down your eyebrows. Many of Dr. Lee’s patients elect to combine a brow lift with a facelift or eyelid lift to eliminate excess skin and fat from the eyelids and create an even more youthful appearance.
The Effects of Aging on Your Brow
Just like any other part of your body, your brow is susceptible to the effects of aging. As you get older, the skin and tissues of your upper brow become lax, resulting in a drooping brow. This in turn causes your eyelids to hang lower, which further contributes to a stern, tired-looking appearance.
In addition to sagging, your brow may grow increasingly wrinkled as you age. In these cases, Dr. Lee may recommend cosmetic injectables to smooth out the area of your upper face.
Whether your unique goals require a surgical facial procedure, injectable treatment or both, Dr. Lee will explain all your options during your initial consultation. During your confidential discussion with Dr. Lee, he will assess your condition, answer your questions and work with you to develop a customized treatment plan that matches your individual needs, budget and lifestyle.
