Am I a Good Candidate for a Browlift?

Am I a Good Candidate for a Browlift?We all get tired, but for some of us, constant brow sag, or ptosis, can present a daily challenge. Fortunately, a browlift can make the tired look of a sagging brow a thing of the past. Phoenix browlift surgeon Dr. Richard Brown has years of experience helping patients achieve a more youthful and vibrant appearance through browlift surgery.

Browlift, also called forehead lift, raises the brow in one of several ways. In a bicoronal procedure, an incision is made across the top of the scalp in order to tighten forehead tissue. Dr. Brown also offers minimally invasive endoscopic procedures in which small incisions are made within the hairline or along the upper eyelid. Dr. Brown will consider your individual needs and aesthetic goals in recommending the procedure that’s right for you.

Good candidates for browlift include those whose sagging eyebrows produce a tired or even sad look. Patients with furrows between the eyebrows, frown lines, or creases in the forehead can also benefit from browlift. Anyone considering a browlift procedure should not smoke (or quit smoking six weeks before and six weeks after surgery) and should be in overall good health.
