Athena Clinic in Hawaii – Brow Lift
Also known as a “forehead lift,” a brow lift reduces the appearance of wrinkles and creases that develop in the forehead and brow area. This procedure rejuvenates the upper one-third of the face and is often performed in combination with a facelift or eyelid lift to achieve even better results.
Good Candidates For A Brow Lift
If you feel that the signs of aging on your forehead and upper face make you look sad, tired, angry, or older than your age, you are likely a good candidate for a brow lift. Ideally, you should not smoke or take any medications that may increase risks and complications, such as anti-inflammatory medications (aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen), which can increase your risk for bleeding. Smoking greatly affects healing. Candidates should also be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about their results.
