Have You Considered a Brow Lift?

Dr. Michael Gray of the Michigan Cosmetic Surgery Center and Skin Deep Spa has earned a reputation as the go-to cosmetic plastic surgeon in Michigan for face lifts. But did you know that while face lifts are one of the most popular options for women, a very important (although less popular) procedure is the Brow Lift.

For those who are interested in looking younger — and let’s face it, who isn’t? — a brow lift can achieve dramatic improvement. Are expressions don’t only convey our mood, they also give people a good idea of how old we are… and how well we are aging. If you want to know whether someone is feeling happy or sad, just look at the top third of their face. We might be able to force a smile with our mouths, but our eyes will always be the obvious sign of how we really feel. That’s why poker players often wear sunglasses. If their opponents can see their eyes and brows, they will see “the tell” — the way that player is feeling about his hand.

Brow Lift - Dr. Gray

Happiness and sadness, as well as feeling awake or tired, are related to the tilt and position of the eyebrow. However, the normal aging process of humans can complicate our expressions. The eyebrow then becomes wrinkly, because the skin wrinkles with movement, causing people to look sad, tired or angry. You might be in a great mood, but your wrinkle lines tell a different story.

The brow lift is the ideal solution to this problem. World renown cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gray lifts the brow line and hides the incisions within the hairline leaving a younger, natural look. This simple procedure is the way to restore a youthful appearance to the eyes and forehead. When you’re happy, everyone will know it.

During a brow lift procedure, Dr. Gray makes an incision in the hairline (to hide the scar) that allows him to lift the brow. When performed on women, the minor scar is hidden in the hair. Recovery is very quick and most patients recover for only a week and resume normal activities after three weeks. An eye tuck (Blepharoplasty) can be combined with or without brow lifts when indicated. Many patients also choose to combine a brow lift with a face lift. “It’s important to understand that wrinkles will become true wrinkles in time and then those true wrinkles require a laser to iron the wrinkle,” Dr. Gray explains. “However, wrinkles due to muscle can be treated with Botox, as these are not true wrinkles yet.”

For those interested in nonsurgical options, Dr. Gray recommends Botox, Thermage, Fraxel, CO2 repair, CO2 or Pearl Laser, which can often lift the brows non-surgically.
