The brows frame the entire face and an aging brow can dramatically affect your entire look. Men and women visit us at The Plastic Surgery Group to learn more about their cosmetic options for fixing droopy brows and hooded eyelids. They can either opt for the surgical route via a brow/forehead lift or choose the non-surgical approach through Botox injections.
Quick fix with Botox and dermal fillers
Botox or Dysport is ideal for individuals looking for a quick fix to their droopy brows. These injectables act as muscle relaxants. When the brow depressor muscles are relaxed, their pulling force is greatly diminished, resulting in a more youthful look. Botox can also address forehead creases and wrinkles on the outermost corners of the eyes (commonly known as crow’s feet). The lack of downtime of this approach is what draws many to choose the non-surgical route.
If volume loss is obvious below the brow bone and above the upper eyelids, subtle amounts of hyaluronic acid fillers can dramatically improve the appearance of the upper third of the face.
Permanent fix with brow lift surgery
If the temporary effects of injectables do not meet your brow-enhancement needs, brow lift surgery is the answer. At our practice, we employ the endoscopic brow lift technique in which a series of tiny incisions are made instead of one long incision (the traditional approach). This allows for less scarring and minimal downtime post-surgery.
A personal consultation here at our practice can help you decide which brow-enhancement option will suit you best. Call (585) 922-5840 to schedule an appointment today.
