Should You Consider an Eyebrow Lift If You're Unhappy with Your Current Appearance?


As the saying goes, "old age doesn't come alone." In other words, you may be increasingly concerned about your appearance and have noticed that the skin on the upper part of your face and particularly around the eye area has changed significantly. A lot of the skin in these areas is very sensitive and as people age, wrinkles will appear and the overall structure around the eyes will begin to sag. If you're relatively happy with the appearance of the rest of your face, but certainly want to do something about the area around the eyes, perhaps you should consider an eyebrow lift? What does this involve?

Looking at the Options

With maturity, eyebrows will tend to change their shape. However, many people prefer them to have a more natural "arch," rather than a flatter appearance, as this tends to make the person appear more tired. In order to rectify this, a certain amount of skin can be removed using one of three procedures, to recreate that youthful appearance once again.

Once you've had a consultation with a surgeon, he or she will recommend the best approach to take. This will determine where the actual incisions are made, to remove a portion of skin and recreate the look.

Different Techniques

In many cases, this incision will actually be made very close to the hair line. In one technique, a row of smaller incisions is made which are quite unobtrusive, or the surgeon may choose to make a larger incision if the particular condition of the brow calls for this and you may have more pronounced wrinkles. Alternatively, you may be a candidate for a direct brow lift, also known as the "gull wing." Here, a small portion of skin and tissue directly along the top of the eyebrows is removed and this may also be the preferred approach if you happen to have a high forehead or your hairline has receded.

What about the Recovery?

With all of these procedures, a certain amount of swelling or bruising can be expected in the days following the procedure, but this will quickly recede and in the vast majority of cases, it will be impossible to detect the presence of the scar.

What's Right for You?

As each case is different, it's important to schedule a consultation with the expert first, to determine the best course of action. Have a word with your surgeon now, so that you can stop worrying about your appearance and enjoy your life fully once again.

Maintaining Your Health and Wellbeing

Yo! Welcome to my blog. The most important thing you have in life is your health. You can have a big car and a nice house and a great career but without your health, all of this is worth nothing at all. I didn't realise this until my dad became unwell and a man who seemed like a giant among the men of this world was suddenly stuck in a hospital bed. I nursed my dad and supported him throughout his recovery. During this time, I learnt a lot about the health and medical world. I hope you like this blog.
