Brow Lift Surgery or Botox?

cosmetic-surgeryWe all want our face to accurately express how we are feeling. However as we age, our muscles and skin tend to droop, which can make us look grumpy, upset, angry or worn-out. The first signs of aging tend to occur in the crows feet and forehead area.

What Is Brow Lift Surgery?
The brow lift, sometimes referred to as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure designed to elevate the brow to a more youthful position relative to the eyelids. Since most people focus on the area of the eyes when talking to you, it can, by itself, make your whole face appear younger.

Benefits Of Brow Lift Surgery
• Raising the eyebrows to a more alert and youthful appearance
• Improving a heavy brow to brighten the face
• Repositioning a low or sagging brow that is hooding the upper eyelid
• Minimizing wrinkles that develop across the forehead, or high on the bridge of the nose
• Improving frown lines, vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows
• Correcting asymmetry of the eyebrows

Brow Lift Surgery Or Botox
When Botox Cosmetic is injected into the forehead, it temporarily reduces unwanted lines, creases and folds for about three to four months. With the right technique, it can also create a lifting effect on the eyebrows. But when forehead wrinkles, folds and creases are too deep, a forehead lift may offer a more permanent and dramatic result.

Advantages Of A Botox Brow Lift
Botox Cosmetic injections are minimally invasive, the procedure costs less than surgery and there are not as many risks involved. Recovery is also much easier and quicker. Botox Cosmetic brow lifts improve the shape and position of the eyebrows, providing a subtle, natural and temporary lift to the forehead. Frown lines and wrinkles near the eyes disappear, leaving a beautiful, smooth surface and delaying the need for a surgical brow lift procedure as Botox Cosmetic not only reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles but slows down the creation of new lines and wrinkles, slowing the aging process.
