Sagging Brows: One Problem, Two Possible Solutions

Browlift, Haxelton, PAAs we age, we face a number of changes that we may have never expected. Facial aging may begin with a few lines and creases around the eyes and mouth, but, at some point, progresses into laxity that creates the appearance of weight at the lower face (jowls) and may dramatically alter the way in which the eyes represent us. If your aging process has led to drooping brows, you know exactly what we mean.

The eyebrows serve as a frame to the eyes. By nature, they are supposed to sit on top of the bone that encompasses the eye, called the orbital rim. When the eyebrows fall below this ridge, the eyes may begin to look sad, angry, or tired. Which appearance your eyes take on depends on the area in which the brow is being pulled downward. The good news about drooping brows is that they can be lifted. The question is how.

Lifting with Surgery

A surgical brow lift, or forehead lift, is a procedure in which only the tissue on the upper face is repositioned. Dr. Kimmel performs brow lifts using an endoscopic technique. This means a few short incisions versus one long incision that travels from ear to ear behind the hairline. An endoscopic brow lift uses tiny instruments to reposition the tissue on the forehead so the brow line once again sits across the orbital rim.

A surgical brow lift can:

  • Restore optimal height and curvature to the brows
  • Rejuvenate the eyes by reducing weight on the upper eyelids
  • Remove worry lines and frown lines
  • Make the eyes appear friendlier and more vibrant
  • Complement blepharoplasty to achieve more dramatic results

Lifting with Botox

Botox can solve quite a few cosmetic concerns, including a drooping brow. Treatment involves injections into tensed muscle tissue at specific points on the forehead. Within a few days after injections are administered, the treated muscles relax and allow the brow to sit higher on the forehead.

A Botox brow lift can:

  • Reduce or eliminate worry lines and frown lines
  • Reposition the brow line to sit closer to the orbital rim
  • Offer convenient and affordable treatment
  • Achieve results that last approximately 4 months

Schedule Your Consultation

Both the surgical brow lift and Botox brow lift offer specific advantages and each has disadvantages, too. To discover which approach may be best for your aging brow, schedule a visit at our Pottsville or Hazleton office.
