Toledo brow lift plastic surgery for a younger, fresher look.

The effects of aging are inevitable, and, often, the brow and forehead area show the first signs. The skin begins to lose its elasticity. Sun, wind, and the pull of gravity all affect the face, resulting in frown lines, wrinkling across the forehead, and an increasing heaviness of the eyebrows. For men and women in Toledo, brow lift (forehead lift) plastic surgery can offer the outcomes they desire.

To modify the brow, a surgeon tightens loose skin and removes the excess forehead wrinkling and drooping. The procedure is called a forehead lift or brow lift. If necessary, the surgeon removes part of the muscle that causes vertical frown lines between the brows. The result can be a smoother brow and a more youthful expression. Forehead lifts are an option if you have a sagging brow or deep furrows between the eyes.

Incisions can be placed at the hairline, behind the hairline, or in some cases, above the brow or in the mid-forehead. Your surgeon can help you select the best technique suited to your particular situation.
