Brow Lifts Done Right

Brow lifts don’t have to leave patients with a permanently surprised look. While there are many types of procedures available, a recent study concludes that one particular operation offers the best results.

big browBrow lifts are a popular procedure for creating a more youthful look, but depending on the surgeon’s skills, the operation can produce uneven results. Some patients who get a brow lift end up looking constantly surprised.

Now, a new study shows that a certain technique can provide the proper look.

The study focused on two groups of women undergoing brow lift surgery. The first group ranged from age 20 to 30, and the second was between ages 50 and 60. The study examined the facial measurements of the women in both groups before and after their brow lift. The overall findings were that the eyebrow area becomes naturally elevated with age. And surgery on the mid and medial brow area produced results that didn’t look youthful or aesthetically pleasing.

Doctors concluded that elevating the lateral brow area can offer the most natural look. And surgeons who take this approach can save their patients a lot of surprise.

The study appears in the current issue of the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
