Forehead Lift VS. Botox®: How to Decide Which One is Right For You

Forehead Lift VS. Botox®: How to Decide Which One is Right For You

Forehead Lift Highlands, NCAs a patient, it can sometimes feel overwhelming to look at all of the cosmetic procedures that are available to you. However, here at the Center For Plastic Surgery, we make it our goal to make sure that all of our patients feel confident and informed each and every time they are seen. Two procedures that some of our patients have a hard time choosing between are either a forehead lift or Botox. So, what are the differences and how can you decide which one is right for you?

Botox

If you suffer from fine lines and wrinkles across your forehead and around your eyes— welcome to the aging club. Botox can correct these and also elevate the brow as long as the tissues can be held up against gravity. Because of this, Botox has remained one of the most popular non-invasive procedures amongst patients desiring to rejuvenate the brow and peri-orbital area because it is fast, safe, and frequently very effective. Also, because it’s non-invasive, you don’t have to worry about recovery time. The major drawback is that it only lasts an average of 3-6 months and there are some patients that are just not candidates.

Forehead Lift

If you are looking for something that’s a little more permanent than Botox, then a surgical procedure like a forehead lift may be right for you. It is also indicated if the brow is so lax that the forehead muscles cannot elevate it once the muscles pulling it down are eliminated.

When it really comes to choosing between something non-invasive like Botox and something surgical like a forehead lift, it comes down to the type of procedure you want and the results you desire. During your initial consultation, we will help determine which one of these procedures (or even another procedure) is going to give you the best results possible to meet your needs.

A Brow Lift – The Perfect Gift To Give Yourself This Spring

browlift Highlands, NCNobody likes to be told they look tired. Or grumpy. Or sad. Or stressed. If this has happened to you, and you would like to refresh your look in a minimally invasive way, a brow lift may just the ticket.

Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift is cosmetic surgery that can correct a deeply furrowed or sagging brow and reduce the frown lines that develop across the forehead and on the bridge of the nose. It can also raise the eyebrows to a more alert and youthful position. At The Center for Plastic Surgery, a brow lift is a popular procedure and is often performed along with eyelid surgery, a facelift or skin resurfacing techniques.

What are the benefits of a brow lift?

A brow lift procedure can make you look younger, more relaxed, and more refreshed. It removes or improves the horizontal lines and furrows on your forehead that may be making you look tired, worried, or angry, even when you are not. It’s true that other people react to how you look, and may treat you as if you are angry or worried no matter how happy or relaxed you actually are. A sagging forehead also makes you look years older than you are or feel. A brow lift can make you look younger and more refreshed, and can give your self-confidence a boost as well.

Here are some things to keep in mind before opting for a brow lift:

  • If you are concerned about the area around your eyes, you may want to discuss other options with us, such as eyelid surgery.
  • The effects of aging or any major change in your weight following surgery could affect your results.
  • Cosmetic surgery is not covered by private health insurance companies.
  • Smokers are at increased risk of complications from any surgery.

We also offer non-surgical alternatives to a brow lift, such as dermal fillers, injectables and laser resurfacing. Call for a consultation appointment and let us discuss with you the many options available to give you the youthful, fresh look you deserve and desire: (828) 526-3783 or toll-free: (877) 526-3784.
