A sagging brow can cause you to look tired, angry or older than you feel. Along with other features of the upper face, the brow communicates an array of emotions. If your brow has begun to droop as a result of aging, you may be sending unintended emotional signals that can seriously impact your personal and professional interactions.
If you live in Denver and would like to correct sagging issues in your brow or forehead, schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Zwiebel today by completing the form on this page or calling 303-470-3400. In your consultation, Dr. Zwiebel will listen closely to your goals, carefully assess your facial structure and recommend the best strategy to achieve the look you want.
Your brow, just like every other part of your body, is susceptible to gravity. As you age, the tissues and skin of your upper brow grow lax and cause your brow to hang lower. When the brow droops, it can cause your eyelids to sag or fold, compounding your tired, stern appearance.
A wrinkled brow is different from a sagging brow, although some people have both. Brows wrinkle where persistent muscle action has created furrows and creases in the skin. In these instances, BOTOX® cosmetic injections can effectively smooth the brow. In some cases, Dr. Zwiebel may recommend a more long lasting surgical procedure that can weaken or remove the muscles responsible for creating deep furrows, known as the "11s". Your consultation and anatomical review are critical to assessing these options.
Brow Lift Procedure and Results
Many of our patients from Denver and Highlands Ranch are concerned that brow lift surgery will create perpetually surprised expressions on their faces. However, the goal of the brow lift, much like the goal of any cosmetic surgical procedure, is to achieve a beautiful, natural result. Dr. Zwiebel understands these concerns and focuses on repositioning the brow in a way that enhances the appearance of your eye without leaving impression of an emotional expression.
In brow lift procedures, tiny incisions are made above the hairline in which small tools are inserted to elevate the brow. The procedure will smooth furrows in your forehead and tissues are affixed in their elevated positions.
Eyelid surgery is often combined with a brow lift to eliminate excess fat and skin from the eyelids to create a fully refreshed appearance.
The results of a brow lift can be both aesthic and functional. Not only does hanging forehead skin make you appear older, it can also obstruct your vision by pushing your eyebrows down.
