Who Makes an Ideal Brow Lift Candidate?
The forehead and brows are very expressive parts of our facial features. Because of this, signs of aging along the forehead or brows often give off negative impressions that patients don’t wish to convey. For instance, many patients who come to plastic surgeon Patricia Berbari for cosmetic enhancement of the forehead area complain that frown lines, sagging brows, and creases between the eyes have made them appear constantly tired, angry, or upset. Clearly, these are not the impressions that our patients would like to make. For those of our Gatineau patients who are brow lift candidates, this procedure can address these imperfections and give patients a more refreshed, alert, and pleasant appearance.
Brow Lift Candidates
The term “brow lift” may indicate to some patients that this procedure is concentrated solely on lifting or correcting the eyebrows. However, brow lift surgery is also known as a forehead lift because the procedure actually enhances the appearance of the brows and forehead by lifting the brows and altering the facial muscles of the forehead to create a softer and smoother appearance. Any patient who is concerned with signs of aging on the upper third of the face should discuss with Dr. Berbari possible candidacy for brow lift surgery.
As with any plastic surgery procedure, the first step in indicating whether a patient is a good candidate for brow lift surgery is to evaluate their health and medical history. In her commitment to minimize the risk of complications and ensure safe and effective surgical results for all patients, Dr. Berbari will only perform brow lift surgery on healthy individuals free of medical conditions that could make surgery an unsafe procedure. In general, brow lift candidates are male or female patients within the 35 to 70 year age range. Brow lift surgery is the ideal solution for patients who are concerned by the presence of the following characteristics:
- Drooping eyebrows
- Deep horizontal creases across the forehead
- Frown lines
- Furrows between the eyebrows
- A tired, worried, or angry expression
If Dr. Berbari does determine that a patient is a good candidate for brow lift surgery, this procedure can create a softer, more relaxed, and refreshed appearance for patients.
When signs of aging are concentrated along the forehead and brow line, brow lift surgery can be very effective in enhancing a patient’s appearance. However, in some cases Dr. Berbari may conclude that more extensive correction is required or that an alternate procedure may be more effective in producing the patient’s desired results. We offer a full range of facial plastic surgery procedures to address signs of aging and revitalize facial features. At a consultation, Dr. Berbari can evaluate each patient’s unique needs and desires to determine the best form of cosmetic enhancement.
