Every day, we are exposed to the sun’s UV rays and environmental pollutants such as second-hand smoke, car exhaust, and other toxins. Physical and psychological stressors also take their toll. Hormonal shifts and fluctuations, alcohol and drug intake as well as poor nutrition are also among the countless contributors to premature aging.
One of the most telling signs of old age is the wrinkling of the forehead and a lowered brow. Fortunately, surgery procedures, specifically, the forehead and brow lift, are available solutions. Forehead and brow lift procedures are well-practiced and we have had much success with these procedures in our very own Austin clinic.
As we lose elasticity in our skin and other tissues, the effects of gravity are more apparent. As a result, the brows are lowered, and the skin sags. In addition to the effects of gravity, lines form across our forehead as well as between the eyebrows, making for a kind of angry or depressed look. Another undesirable result of aging is sagging skin around the eyes, adding to the whole tired and angry look.
The forehead and brow lift procedure is an excellent long-term solution that will restore a more youthful- looking expression. This procedure used to be done by creating a long incision across the scalp, from ear to ear. As you can imagine, this caused scarring and uneven hair growth along the incision line.
Today, this surgery procedure has evolved into what is known as an endoscopic brow and forehead lift, which is a much less invasive procedure. It involves just a few small incisions and tiny cameras which afford the doctor much more controlled precision of skin and tissue manipulation.
To make the most of the forehead and brow lift procedure, patients often times will also get the skin around their eyes and other lifting procedures done to match. As you can imagine, the result is a much more natural look. Contact our clinic for surgery in Austin to set up a consultation, and we can tailor a treatment plan that will best suit your needs.
