Would you like to address signs of facial aging such as wrinkles, skin laxity, crow’s feet, or droopy brows? A brow lift and facelift can both rejuvenate the face and give it a fresher more youthful appearance. But how does a brow lift compare to a facelift.
Brow lift vs. facelift
A brow lift and facelift are both facial rejuvenation procedures, but they target different areas of the face.
Difference between a brow lift and a facelift
Contrary to what many people believe, a facelift does not rejuvenate the entire face, it focuses on the lower third of the face. A facelift corrects sagging in the midface, jowls, and wrinkles and folds around the mouth. The results of a facelift last about 10 years. A facelift does not address the brows or the area above the cheekbones.
On the other hand, a brow lift corrects droopy brows and rejuvenates the forehead area. It improves frown lines between the eyes as well as forehead wrinkles, and also provides a subtle lift for sagging upper eyelids caused by a droopy brow. A brow lift gives the eyes a more alert appearance, and makes the entire face look rested. The results of a brow lift typically last 5-10 years.
Do I need a brow lift or a face lift?
