Everyone wants to find new ways to make themselves look younger. While you could try to prevent or reduce the signs of aging with topical treatments and over the counter products, they most likely won’t have much of an impact on the appearance of your skin. For sagging and deep wrinkles, topical treatments just won’t cut it. If you really want to look younger, you’ll need to look into getting cosmetic surgery.
A problem area for many as they start to age is their forehead. When the skin on your forehead starts to sag, it pushes down the skin around the brows and eyes as well. To combat the effects of aging around the forehead, the best solution is a brow lift. During a brow lift, your surgeon will remove excess skin and pull the remaining skin to tighten it and remove any wrinkles and creases.
Brow lifts are an extremely common cosmetic surgery, but what makes so many people want to get it? Here are three benefits of getting a brow lift.
1. Improve your vision
You might not realize it until your skin starts aging, but sagging skin could negatively impact your vision. When the skin on our forehead and brow start to sag, it pushes the skin down around your eyes. If your skin starts to sag enough, you could start to notice it in your vision.
The sagging skin will begin to push down around your eyes. For some who have a large amount of excess skin, this can become a major issue. Even if you don’t have a lot of sagging, hanging skin around your eyes could make your everyday life more difficult. You might feel like your eyes don’t look as open anymore and you can’t see as much if it’s putting pressure on your eyelids. It can also make it difficult to apply makeup. People with naturally hooded eyes could experience this at any age and choose to have it taken care of. After a brow lift, the skin hanging around your eyes will be pulled away and you’ll be back to having wide, open eyes.
2. Look happier and younger
When the skin around your eyes starts to sag down, you might notice that you always end up looking angry or tired, no matter how you’re feeling. Some people even think this makes them less approachable in public. Creases along your brows can make you look like you’re in a perpetual state of frowning.
Having no control over your appearance can be annoying, especially if you always look upset. No one wants to have people constantly ask them what wrong just because their skin makes them look angry. You want people to know that you’re happy or alert and know that they feel comfortable around you. However, sagging skin doesn’t always let you show your true feelings. A brow lift will fix these issues and help you look happy and awake by fixing your wrinkles and pulling back the skin.
3. Results are long lasting
Anyone who has had a cosmetic procedure, like dermal fillers, in the past knows how annoying the upkeep can be. While smaller procedures like this are quick and require no recovery time, they can become a lot of work. Botox and fillers aren’t meant to last forever. You can get great results from this, but in a few months, you’ll need to do it all over again. They’re also only really intended for people who only have mild to moderate wrinkles and sagging, so they won’t be very useful for some people.
For the most effective treatment, you should consider getting a brow lift instead. A brow lift can give you the long term results you’re looking for. The results of a brow lift will also be much more noticeable for even deeply wrinkled skin. Of course, eventually the remaining skin will still age, but you’ll have the effects of a brow lift for much longer than some other options. For really dramatic results, some people choose to get a brow lift done at the same time as another procedure, like eyelid surgery. Different brow lifts are also designed to treat different levels of severity, so you can find something just right for you.
