If you’re in the Denver area and are unhappy living with forehead creases, drooping eyebrows, hooding over the eyes, or excessive frown lines, consider a facial rejuvenation procedure from Boulder Plastic Surgery. More commonly known as brow lifts or forehead lifts, these procedures take only two hours and use general/outpatient anesthesia.
Areas the Brow Lift Procedure Targets
Brow lifts are performed on the upper one-third of the face, where aging can cause transverse forehead wrinkles, vertical lines between the eyebrows, horizontal wrinkles at the top of the nose, and drooping of the eyebrows, upper eyelids, and upper nasal tissue. A brow lift will target these abnormalities and work to make them less apparent or eliminate them altogether. The results of this procedure will depend on several factors.
Factors to be Aware of When Considering a Brow Lift Procedure
While the natural aging process does cause the above symptoms to manifest over time, the degree and intensity at which you animate your face with many facial expressions can cause an acceleration of forehead wrinkles and glabellar frown lines. Contrary to popular belief, this procedure will not make you look 20 years younger, but the end result will foster positive self-image thanks to a more relaxed and a less tired, sad, or angry look.
Side Effects of the Brow Lift Procedure
All procedures involving an incision will leave a scar, and the brow lift may cause your forehead to feel tight and numb for several weeks. This is caused by the stretching of your nerves and will subside anywhere from a few weeks to a few months post-procedure.
