Will A Brow Lift Make You Look Surprised?

Posted in Brow Lift

The brows frame a person’s eyes, which means that they can dramatically affect a person’s appearance. Over time, as the collagen and elastin begin to break down in the skin, the brows can start to sag and create a constant angry or sad expression even when the person is happy. Also, the aging process usually brings expression lines and wrinkles to form on the forehead and between the eyebrows. Brow lift surgery can eliminate these signs of aging and restore a more pleasant facial appearance, but a common concern or misconception surrounding a brow lift is that it will cause a permanent look of surprise.

Dr. Christopher K. Livingston and his exceptional team at Livingston Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX, want to put some of your brow lift concerns to rest. We are confident that a well-performed brow lift can help you look more like how you feel.

What Is the Purpose of a Brow Lift?

A well-performed, conservative brow lift can make you look rested and rejuvenated. By subtly lifting heavy or drooping brows, the procedure can make the eyes appear more “open,” giving your whole face a more approachable look. The operation can even help improve your vision if your brows droop severely and hood your eyes.

Unfortunately, brow lift mistakes are known to occur. Common mistakes that can leave someone looking overdone including pulling the brows too high on the face and lifting the inner brow too high that it doesn’t look cohesive with the outer brow. Therefore, it is incredibly important to do your research and find the best plastic surgeon in your area and study the results they’ve created.

What Happens During a Brow Lift with Dr. Livingston?

Incisions will be created using one of two different techniques. Your surgery may be performed endoscopically through a small incision along the hairline. Through this method, Dr. Livingston will remove muscle and tissue and reposition the rest with the use of a special device in order to reduce the creases along the forehead.

Alternatively, Dr. Livingston may recommend a coronal brow lift to target the specific areas of the brow that need to be corrected. For this method, Dr. Livingston will create an incision within the scalp from ear to ear. From there the forehead will be lifted by removing the excess skin from the scalp. Although this method does require a longer recovery time, areas that are troubling you will be more precisely corrected.
