Brow lift procedures are a very popular way to reduce wrinkles around the eyes and in the forehead area. Many men and women suffer from premature aging due repeated exposure to the harsh Tampa, FL sun. A brow lift is a cosmetic procedure that can remove these lines by tightening up the skin in the forehead and around the upper facial region. This will often correct the most visible signs of facial aging. Learn how a brow lift procedure can reduce the signs of aging, and whether this is a solution that will work for you to restore a naturally younger appearance.
How a Brow Lift Reduces Signs of Aging
The lines that appear on the face are a result of age as well as environmental factors. As we get older, we lose the collagen and elastin in our skin tissue. Our facial muscles get weaker and the outer layer of skin begins to pull away from the underlying tissue. Our skin dries out and becomes loose, creating lines and creases around the areas with the greatest facial movement. Usually the first signs of aging appear around our eyes and in our foreheads. This happens because we create many of our facial expressions with our eyes and we also squint frequently to block out the brutal sun in Tampa. External factors such as pollution, sun exposure, diet and water intake can also have an impact on how quickly wrinkles develop.
With age, the brows start to sag, the upper eyelids develop a hood and women are often left with a permanent scowling expression. A brow lift raises the eyebrows to restore a more youthful appearance and give you a well-rested look. The procedure relaxes the forehead muscles and tightens the skin to reduce frown lines and forehead lines. “After recovery from a brow lift, the patient will notice a significant reduction of frown lines, smoothing of the deep forehead furrows, a wider eye opening, and reduction of drooping eyebrows.” says Dr. Dominic Castellano, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Tampa.
Natural Looking Brow Lift Improves Appearance
While many women consider the idea of having a brow lift to reduce lines around the eyes and on the forehead, many also worry that the results won’t appear to be natural. Many plastic surgeons today do endoscopic surgery for brow lift procedures, but Dr. Dominic takes a more trusted and traditional approach. Dr. Dominic prefers to use a scalpel to make a small incision in the scalp at the hairline. This allows the skin and underlying muscle to be lifted more easily and provide a longer lasting result. According to Dr. Dominic, “endoscopic surgery is great for knee surgery or for an appendix but, in my opinion, it does not offer the precision necessary for facial surgery. When working on such delicate tissue, only a skilled hand can make the tiny incisions necessary to create the naturally younger appearance that my patients prefer.”
The technique used at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery is simpler and less invasive. This means that the recovery times are shorter and there is a smaller scar under the hairline. “I believe our procedure does not leave the patient that ‘overworked’ look that is a result of more invasive surgery. We want the patient to both younger and naturally refreshed following the brow lift.
