Aging can impact several areas of facial appearance, and one of the most significant for many people is the brow area. The eyebrows and forehead often show lines, wrinkles or other signs of aging that many people want to get rid of.

At Mobley MD, we’re here to help if this is happening to you. We boast one of the most well-known and reputable brow and forehead lift programs in the country, and many of our patients cross state lines and travel hundreds of miles just for these services from Dr. Mobley. But how do you know if the time is right for such a procedure? Dr. Mobley will sit down with you for a consultation to go over all the details here – and here are a few of the areas he might cover with you at that time.

Procedure Benefits

A brow lift or forehead lift is all about making your appearance more youthful, and this is done by improving the way the brow or forehead looks through multiple expressions. The aging process can cause several effects in this area, including making you look tired or angry due to sagging skin that creates a “furrowed brow” look even when you don’t mean to have one.

A brow lift, however, tightens the skin in these areas and removes these kinds of mistaken appearance issues. It’s known to draw more attention to your eyes rather than your forehead, and helps with self-confidence and decreasing appearance-related stress for many people. If you regularly have issues with looking awake or alert, the brow lift can go a long way to helping you out in this area as well.

Signs It’s 20:01:17

Some of the most prominent signs that it might be the right time for you to get a brow lift include the following:

  • The skin on your forehead or brow area has begun to sag down and appear heavier on your face. In many cases, this causes you to appear tired, angry, worried, stressed or some other negative emotion even when you aren’t.
  • Extra sagging skin may droop down over your eyes – in the very worst cases, this may even impact your vision or line of sight.
  • Severe creases may form across your forehead that are highly noticeable.

Types and Expectations

What will happen during your brow lift depends on which type of lift you’re getting. A few options include:

  • Endoscopic lift: The least invasive type, involving incisions behind the hairline and a surgical camera that helps guide the surgeon while they remove extra fat and reposition muscles.
  • Temporal: Also called a limited incision, this involves lifting tissue and repositioning muscles in the outer area of the brow.
  • Classic: Also known as the coronal lift, this is a long incision behind the hairline that stretches from ear to ear, allowing for fat removal and muscle positioning. For most patients this is not the ideal option. But in some special circumstances, such as a naturally high hairline; this may be the best choice.

Regardless of which type you get, you’ll be told to avoid any strenuous physical activity in the week or two following your brow lift. This is to allow proper healing and prevent any infections or other issues.
