Baltimore Plastic Surgeon James Vogel, MD Explores the Benefits of Brow Lift Surgery
Dr. James E. Vogel explains how a full brow lift procedure can restore a smoother, more youthful appearance to the forehead, brow line, and upper face.
Baltimore, MD – For many men and women, facial aging in the brow and forehead area can have a fairly dramatic effect on the way others perceive them. Individuals experiencing skin laxity combined with overactive forehead muscles are commonly described as looking more tired, angry, or older than than they truly are. According to Baltimore plastic surgeon James E. Vogel, MD, it is possible to effectively reverse several signs of aging with a dynamic procedure like brow lift surgery. This popular technique is designed to rejuvenate the forehead and brow region by surgically addressing several key factors that contribute to an aging facial appearance. Dr. Vogel explains that a significant advantage of brow lift is that it can be custom-tailored to suit the unique needs and anatomical features of the patient while delivering the precise degree of enhancement required.
When properly performed by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vogel says a full brow lift procedure can help:
- Smooth forehead wrinkles and creases
- Reduce “hooding” of the upper eyelid
- Elevate the brow line to a more youthful position
- Restore the natural arch to the eyebrows
- Reduce the appearance of furrows (vertical creases) between the brows
- Smooth knotted musculature between the brows
- Eliminate excess skin
Depending upon the depth and degree of skin laxity, soft tissue, and muscular aging present, Dr. Vogel may present his patients with the option of choosing full brow lift surgery to provide the most extensive level of rejuvenation (benefits listed above), or two less invasive options for enhancing the brow. If a patient is experiencing only mild to moderate wrinkles and furrows along the forehead and brow line, he notes that a non-surgical brow lift solution using wrinkle reducers can often provide adequate, albeit temporary, improvement. Another variation on the brow lift is an option named a mini-brow lift, which provides a small surgical lift and longer-lasting wrinkle reduction results when compared with the non-surgical lift. Regardless of the method chosen, Dr. Vogel explains that the results of any brow lift technique can usually be further enhanced by combining complementary procedures and treatments, some of which may include an eyelid lift to provide comprehensive rejuvenation of the eye area, injectable treatments to restore volume and reduce wrinkles throughout the entire face, and/or IPL therapy to improve the tone, texture, and elasticity of skin.
Ultimately, Dr. Vogel says facial plastic surgery is a delicate art that requires a comprehensive understanding of anatomy, facial aging, surgical techniques, non-invasive treatments, and the overall aesthetics of a youthful face. As a result, he suggests choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon who not only exhibits an experiential knowledge of all these vital components, but one who will develop a highly individualized treatment strategy for rejuvenating one’s appearance in the safest, most effective way possible.
