If you’re just beginning to notice signs of aging, you may be starting to panic a little. While aging is an inevitable part of life, it can be scary to realize you don’t look as young as you feel. Early in the process, many people start noticing minor signs of aging in the forehead in the form of lines and sagging skin. If you’re considering plastic surgery to fight aging, you’ve probably considered several different invasive and non-invasive facial procedures. With all the options available, however, picking right the procedure for you can be intimidating.If you’re looking for something a little more permanent than Botox, but aren’t quite ready for a facelift, a brow lift could be a good option. The following are a few reasons why:
While all plastic surgery carries expense, the more in-depth procedures, such as facelift, command high price tags. A brow lift, though not as cheap as non-permanent solutions like injections, is less expensive than many surgeries. In addition, there is no ongoing cost associated with the procedure.
Unlike Botox and fillers, brow lifts provide lasting results for patients. The surgery doesn’t need to be redone every few months, and though surgery can’t stop the aging process, it can certainly slow it down.
Since the brow is often among the first features to develop signs of aging, it makes sense to treat that area first. People who elect for brow lift surgery often do so because the lines and sagging skin give them a perpetually angry or serious expression. The results of a brow lift are generally very long lasting, which makes it a great procedure for middle aged patients.
Are You a Candidate?
Not everyone is a candidate for brow lift surgery. You must be in general good health with realistic expectations. There may be additional requirements, which prospective surgeons will discuss with you. If you’d like to have your candidacy evaluated, and learn more about the procedure, contact board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Robert A. Mounsey of Revesse(416.438.2499) in Toronto to set up a consultation.
