Lifting Those Brows
- Posted on: Apr 15 2018
When talking with another person, we utilize various facial cues to help us interpret non-verbal signs. This is especially true of the area around our eyes because the eyes are the focal point of the face. If your brows droop and sag, they can give the impression that you’re very tired or even angry even when you’re not.
Sagging brows are a result of years of repeated facial expressions such as squinting, frowning, and smiling. These expressions all involve the skin and other tissues on the upper third of the face, and over time they begin to slacken. Throw in sun damage and the natural loss of muscle tension in the area and your brows become saggy. Creases form between your eyebrows (the 11s), and the heavy brow skin pushes your eyelid skin lower, giving you a hooded appearance.
A brow lift from Dr. Saltz is the only way to reposition your brows and take away the fatigued, perpetually angry look.
Would a brow lift help me?
Proper brow position is critical for beautiful eyes, but often we don’t realize the degree our brows have descended. This is because when we look in the mirror, most of us subconsciously raise our eyebrows. A brow lift is a great procedure for patients who have sagging or low eyebrows. It’s a good answer for people with the 11s, and for those with deep lines on the forehead. During your consultation, Dr. Saltz will show you how your brow position is impacting your outward demeanor, and how much it is aging your face.
Dr. Saltz employs different techniques in his brow lifts, depending on the individual situation of the patient. This surgery demands a certain artistic ability, combined with surgical expertise, to create the balance needed for natural-looking results. Many women avoid brow lift surgery because they are worried that they will end up with overly raised brows or a surprised look. You’ve no doubt seen celebrity photos with this effect.
With an eye on keeping a natural look, Dr. Saltz is very cautious with his brow lift procedures. He addresses the brow shape along its entire length for a more natural and soft enhancement. Dr. Saltz is also very mindful of incision locations so that they don’t adversely impact a patient’s future hairstyle options.
