6 Benefits of a Brow Lift

A brow lift is one of the many cosmetic surgery procedures available to manage the signs of aging and to give your face a more symmetrical and tighter, younger look. Easing fine lines and wrinkles is just one of the benefits of getting a brow lift. 

From saving money on cosmetic products and additional procedures as you age to feeling better about how you look, a brow lift can literally transform your face and your sense of confidence and self-esteem.

At Rick J. Smith, MD, our plastic surgeon Dr. Rick Smith and our team offer a range of surgical and noninvasive cosmetic procedures at our office in East Lansing, Michigan. 

6 benefits of getting a brow lift

The decision to undergo any cosmetic procedure, whether it’s a brow lift or Botox injections, is deeply personal, and everyone chooses to invest in plastic surgery and aesthetic treatments for different reasons. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 17 million Americans underwent some form of plastic surgery or cosmetic procedure in 2018, and the number continues to grow.

If you’re considering a brow lift, the first step is to schedule a consultation. Dr. Smith and our team will perform a comprehensive evaluation, answer all of your questions, and make recommendations based on your goals and personal circumstances. 

With any cosmetic procedure, the most important thing is to work with a board-certified plastic surgeon to ensure your health and safety and get the best results. 

Here are some of the benefits that you can expect from your brow lift procedure:

1. Smooth fine lines and wrinkles 

The area around the eyes and the forehead is usually where the first signs begin. These include crow’s feet, wrinkles, and sagging skin around the eyes. A brow lift targets this area to tighten the skin so it looks smoother without more invasive procedures like a face lift. 

2. Lift sagging skin

The delicate skin around the eyes is thin and tends to age more quickly than other areas of the face and body. Even if you don’t have crow’s feet, sagging eyelids and crepey skin around your eyes can make you look older. A brow lift is a subtle and effective treatment to address the signs of aging on the most delicate part of the face.

3. Make your brows look more symmetrical

Standards of beauty and attractiveness vary from person to person and culture to culture, but studies have found that most people associate beauty and attractiveness with more symmetrical features. In addition to fixing the most common signs of aging, a brow lift can also make your brow line look more even and symmetrical. 

4. Address multiple skin problems at the same time

A brow lift targets some of the most common and frustrating signs of aging, including:

Think of a brow lift like a mini facelift that targets the top half of your face.

5. Feel more confident

If you’re unhappy with your appearance, chances are that it’s affecting your life in several negative ways, both personally and professionally. Many people choose to get cosmetic surgery procedures like a brow lift for personal fulfillment as well as aesthetic improvement.

6. Less invasive than a full facelift 

A brow lift is typically an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Smith makes discreet, small incisions behind your hairline to pull the skin back and adjust the underlying tissue for a firmer and tighter look. The procedure usually takes an hour, and you may experience some bruising and swelling for about a week after the procedure.
