    Who is a good candidate for a brow lift?

    Who is a good candidate for a brow lift?A person can appear tired, older, or angry due to the presence of wrinkles and aging lines between the brows and on the forehead. 

    Brow lift plastic surgery is a safe, effective, and proven procedure to restore a smoother and more youthful brow appearance creating a rejuvenated looking upper face.

    At the time of the pre-operative consultation, the surgeon will cautiously assess the patient as a candidate for brow lift surgery. While some patients may require both brow lift and eyelid lift, others may need only a non-surgical Botox procedure. 

    The surgeon will provide suitable recommendations depending on the patient’s upper face anatomy and their unique aesthetic goals. 

    Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides brow lift (forehead lift) to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.


    Good Candidates

    A majority of people seeking brow lift cosmetic surgery are over the age of 40 years. The brow lines and eyelids usually start to sag and noticeable wrinkle being to appear along the forehead at this age. 

    If the problem is hereditary, some people may experience these problems in their 20s and 30s as well. People considering brow lift plastic surgery should have reasonable expectations and understand clearly what the procedure can and cannot achieve. 

    Initially, brow lift candidates often assume that they need eyelid lift surgery to improve sagging above the eyes. But a consultation with the plastic surgeon may help them realize that a brow lift could address such issues in a more effective manner. 

    People with the below mentioned concerns typically make ideal candidates for brow lift surgery:

    • Sagging brows
    • Tired or angry appearance
    • Horizontal lines across the forehead
    • Deep furrows between the brows
    • Heavy upper lids


    Having Forehead Lines 

    Over time, wrinkles and lines on the forehead may occur due to repetitive expressions. A person may feel self-conscious because of the presence of these obvious signs of aging. 

    These deep lines can be reduced with Botox or soft tissue fillers only for a temporary duration. In case the candidate wants a long-term solution for forehead lines and the lines that develop across the nose bridge, they may choose brow lift surgery.


    Tired and Sad Appearance

    The underlying muscles in the forehead may sag with age leading to a less alert appearance of the upper face. This will also cause the brows to droop. In a person wants their outer appearance to match the way they feel inside, they may be ideal candidates for a brow lift.


    Other Requirements

    The candidate should be in good overall health and have a positive mindset with clear cosmetic goals. They should not smoke or be willing to quit smoking for a specified duration before and after the brow lift procedure according to the surgeon’s guidelines.
