header-browliftPeople use facial cues to interpret your communication. This is especially true of the area around your eyes because the eyes are the focal point of the face. The position of your brows can give the impression that you’re very tired or even angry when you’re actually anything but.

Sagging brows are a result of years of repeated facial expressions such as squinting, frowning, and smiling. These expressions all pull your brows downward at some point. Throw in sun damage and the natural loss of muscle tension in the area and your brows become saggy. Creases form between your eyebrows (the dreaded 11s) and the heavy brow skin pushes your eyelid skin lower, giving you a hooded appearance.

This is the time when a brow lift from Dr. Kolstad is the only way to reposition your brows and take away the fatigued, perpetually angry look.

Ideal candidates for a Brow Lift

Proper brow position is critical for beautiful eyes but often we don’t realize the degree our brows have descended. Why? Because when we look in the mirror most of us subconsciously raise our eyebrows. A brow lift is a great procedure for patients who have sagging or low eyebrows. It’s a good answer for people with the 11s, and for those with deep lines on the forehead.

During your consultation, Dr. Kolstad will show you how your brow position is affecting your outward demeanor, and how much it is aging your face.

Brow Lift methods

Dr. Kolstad employs different techniques in her brow lifts, depending on the individual situation of the patient. This surgery demands a certain artistic ability, combined with surgical skill, to create the balance needed for natural-looking results. Many women avoid brow lift surgery because they are worried that they will end up with overly raised brows or a surprised look. You’ve no doubt seen these situations in celebrity photos of plastic surgery gone wrong.

With an eye on keeping a natural look, Dr. Kolstad is very cautious with his brow lift procedures. He always seeks to address the brow shape along its entire length for a more natural and soft enhancement. He is also very careful about incision locations.
