Sagging eyebrows can make a person look grumpy, tired, or more aged, all while potentially obstructing vision as well. Unfortunately, there are no forehead exercises that can be used to lift sagging brows, and creams and ointments are limited in their efficacy. Surgical options are often the most reliable and effective way to obtain desirable results – but which surgical procedure corrects eyebrow drooping?
A forehead lift, also known as a brow lift, is designed to address sagging eyebrows. With brow lift surgery, eyebrows can be lifted into a more aesthetically pleasing location, producing a look that is more awake and alert while helping to clear vision that has been diminished by drooping brows.
In addition to lifting the eyebrows, a forehead lift can be used to smooth the spaces in between the eyebrows (known as frown lines or “the 11s”) and eliminate vertical creases across the brow. The procedure is suitable as a stand-alone treatment but is often combined with other procedures, such as facelift and blepharoplasty, for complete facial rejuvenation. During your initial consultation, we will carefully assess your areas of concern to help you determine the best course of action.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical facial rejuvenation option that can help to lift sagging eyebrows as well. BOTOX® Cosmetic can also be used to smooth forehead creases and to smooth the space in between the eyebrows and is a good alternative for people who are interested in softening their appearance, but are not ready for a surgical procedure. During your time in our care, we will provide honest information about all of your options – surgical and non-surgical – to help you choose which treatment will best meet your needs.
