Are You a Candidate for a Brow Lift?

By tmccall on December 10, 2015

Beautiful older woman with healthy skin Do you long for a younger, more alert appearance? Are you troubled by horizontal creases in your forehead or frown lines? If so, a brow lift may be right for you. In many ways, this procedure is similar to a facelift, although it targets different areas. Dr. Tracy McCall will raise drooping muscles and eliminate sagging skin to greatly enhance your appearance and help you look years younger. If you are considering a brow lift, Dr. McCall will schedule a complete evaluation. She will examine your overall health and skin quality to determine if a brow lift is suitable for you. She will also consider your unique cosmetic goals. Patients can rely on Dr. McCall’s unfailing honesty. She will always make treatment recommendations that will meet your needs and give you an important boost of self-confidence. To find out if you are a good candidate for a brow lift, contact our Milwaukee, WI practice.

What Is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift will enhance your forehead and the area around your eyes. Typically, you will receive general anesthesia before your procedure. Then, Dr. McCall will create an incision along your hairline. Thanks to her careful placement, post-surgical scarring will be virtually invisible. Gently lifting up your skin, Dr. McCall will raise the muscles underneath. By addressing this area first, she can achieve dramatic, yet highly natural results. Then she will trim away excess skin before laying the tissues back down and closing the incisions. Following your brow lift, you should take at least a week to rest and recover. Though there will be some swelling and bruising, these effects will dissipate within a few weeks, and you will enjoy the beautiful results of your procedure.

Cosmetic Considerations

Before recommending a brow lift, Dr. McCall will determine if the procedure is going to meet your goals. This treatment can be a good way to address:

  • Horizontal creases in your forehead
  • Frown lines between your eyebrows
  • Drooping eyebrows
  • Sagging skin on your outer forehead, giving you a sad or tired look
  • Sagging skin in your mid forehead, giving you an angry look
  • Sagging skin over your upper eyelids

Health Considerations

Of course, as with all procedures, Dr. McCall will also evaluate your overall health. To qualify for any form of cosmetic surgery, you should have a healthy immune system. Brow lifts are low-risk procedures. However, an autoimmune or blood disorder may make unnecessary surgery inadvisable. Smoking can also affect your body’s ability to heal. Therefore, you must be willing to stop smoking for several weeks before and after your brow lift.

Finally, Dr. McCall will examine your skin quality. You will enjoy optimal treatment results if you still have some remaining skin elasticity. For this reason, most brow lift patients are typically between the ages of 40 and 60. Nevertheless, many men and women over age 60 have enjoyed stunning results from this treatment.
