Should I Add a Brow Lift to My Facelift?

Aging typically impacts multiple areas simultaneously, so most people generally develop several concerns about their appearance. Combining facial rejuvenation procedures like a facelift and a brow lift can provide comprehensive rejuvenation.

At Zinsser Plastic Surgery, Dr. John Zinsser and his team of experts are here to help you determine which procedures will best address your unique situation and help you effectively achieve your aesthetic goals.

What Can a Facelift Do for You?

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgery that addresses the visible signs of aging in the mid- and lower face. While facelifts reposition tissue and remove excess skin, the procedure does not change your unique appearance.

Your customized facelift plan can include the following enhancements:

  • Smoothing lines and creases
  • Minimizing heavy folds such as those that cause jowls
  • Removing sagging skin
  • Repositioning lax skin
  • Redefining your jawline or neck

How Does a Brow Lift Work?

While a facelift is the gold-standard anti-aging procedure, the changes Dr. Zinsser makes will only target the lower two-thirds of your face. A brow lift surgery is a procedure designed to elevate your brows and smooth your forehead.

By reducing forehead wrinkles and repositioning your eyebrows to a more youthful position, you can achieve a younger appearance. A brow lift can improve the following concerns.

  • Eyebrows that have lost their arch
  • Vertical frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Horizontal creases on the forehead
  • Drooping or uneven eyebrows
  • Furrows on the bridge of the nose
  • Eyes that look hooded

Why Consider Combining These Two Procedures?

There are several benefits to adding a brow lift to your Richmond, VA, facelift. Your optimal facelift results may rely on enhancing other facial areas—like the forehead or brow—to achieve full facial rejuvenation. A brow lift opens the orbits, allowing you to look more refreshed and youthful.

As the upper third of the face ages at the same rate the same as the lower third, not addressing the forehead or brow area at the same time as your facelift can result in an overall imbalanced appearance after a facelift alone. With this dynamic duo, you can significantly improve the appearance of aging skin in the upper, middle, and lower facial areas and achieve dramatic, natural-looking results with only one recovery period.

Pairing a brow lift with your facelift means you will achieve dramatic facial rejuvenation results faster than having separate procedures. Combining procedures also adds the cost-effective elements of not paying multiple facility or anesthesia fees.

For dramatic facial transformation, Dr. Zinsser may recommend adding other procedures to your Richmond facelift, including:
