Let’s face it, no one really wants to look their age as the many wrinkles and creases begin to show up. Many people consider a wide variety of cosmetic surgery procedures, including an eyebrow lift, to reduce the signs of aging. The forehead is one of the first places to show these common signs of aging and an eyebrow lift can help. But, before you make the decision to have this type of cosmetic surgery, there are a number of things you should consider.

How will the surgery be performed?

There are two different methods of eyebrow lift surgery. The first and more traditional method involves making an incision that starts at one ear and goes all the way across the forehead just behind the hairline and ends at the other ear. This is a coronal brow lift during which excess skin and fat are removed before the incision is stitched closed.

The other and far less invasive form of eyebrow lift is the subcutaneous eyebrow lift through which Dr. Sonny O will remove excess fat and tighten the muscles with minimal scarring. This method can be used to achieve amazing results, is far less invasive, and has a much shorter recovery time.

Optimum results take time

As with many forms of cosmetic surgery, with eyebrow lift surgery you should not expect to see optimum results immediately. It will take some time for the muscles to settle into their final position and for the swelling to go down.

Finding the right cosmetic surgeon

You will find it pays to invest a fair amount of time researching any cosmetic surgeon you are considering to ensure he or she is the right choice. Dr. Sonny O is more than happy to sit down with you, go over his qualifications, and show you his before and after portfolio to help ensure you are happy with your choice of cosmetic surgeon for your eyebrow lift.
