Most of us are aware of the importance of facial expression in displaying our feelings and sending a message to the people around us. We frown to show discontent or anger, and we smile to show happiness and joy. Unfortunately, as we age our face may adopt a permanent expression of anger or fatigue, even though we feel happy and full of energy. This is characteristic of people with the descent of the brow-forehead unit.
We know of several factors that play a role in the position of our brows, such as gender, genes, and the loss of facial fat that comes with age. This loss of fat is most important because it causes the brow to sag under the weight of gravity. The genetic factor is also critical, especially in young women whose mother or sisters have the same issue.
Fortunately, there is an operation that addresses all the elements of brow descent. The endoscopic forehead and brow lift is designed to treat droopy brows, frown lines, and crow’s feet permanently. This is the best surgical procedure for patients that exhibit these tell-tale signs of aging. In the past, a forehead lift was an extremely invasive and lengthy surgery that put the patient at risk for several potential complications. Happily, there is now available a procedure that is safe, minimally invasive, and allows the patient to recover speedily and with little downtime (watch video). This surgical procedure is the best alternative to rejuvenate the upper third of the face and address unwanted signs of aging.
