A brow lift can subtly refresh your appearance, making you look younger and beautiful yet perfectly natural. Or the changes can be more dramatic, in a good or bad way.
Some people want striking, noticeable changes in the shape or placement of their eyebrows. Others end up with an overly aggressive brow lift, leaving them with unwanted results like a wide-eyed, startled appearance.
Rafael C. Cabrera, MD, FACS, is a master of the brow lift at Plastic Surgery Specialists of Boca Raton. He successfully creates the changes patients desire, building on his long-standing reputation for surgical skill and producing exceptional results.
What makes the difference between a good or bad brow lift, and how can you be confident in your results? There are three essential steps toward ensuring you get the brow lift you desire.
Step 1: Define your goals
The first step toward results that make you happy is knowing what you want to achieve. It’s important to communicate with Dr. Cabrera, explaining what you don’t like about your brows and forehead and describing what you want to change and how you want to appear when your brow lift is finished.
Most people want natural-looking plastic surgery, and that’s what we have years of experience creating for patients. Our patients never leave the surgery suite with anything other than beautiful, natural results.
But some people do want to make a noticeable, striking change in their eyebrows. We can do that, too, but only if you’re sure that’s your goal.
During your consultation, we listen to you, carefully examine your skin, and ask questions to be sure we fully understand the changes you want to make. Then we discuss whether a brow lift is the best choice and what you can expect to achieve.
You can depend on Dr. Cabrera to be direct and honest. He clearly explains the benefits of a brow lift and whether it may fall short of your expectations. He can recommend a different procedure if it’s better suited for meeting your needs and giving you the appearance you want.
Step 2: Understand what a brow lift can accomplish
You’ll only be happy with the results if a brow lift can target the problems you want to improve. Brow lifts are also called forehead lifts because the surgery can target any of the following cosmetic concerns:
- Forehead wrinkles (the furrows running horizontally across your forehead)
- Wrinkles at the top of your nose (between your eyes)
- Frown lines (creases between your eyebrows)
- Unbalanced eyebrows
- Sagging eyebrows
Combining a subtle brow lift with tightening and lifting your forehead to diminish wrinkles takes years off of your appearance.
You can also have other procedures during a brow lift to create a cohesive change in your appearance. For example, a brow lift doesn’t take care of sagging eyelids, so you may get the best results by doing both at the same time.
Or sagging eyelids may be your only concern, in which case, you would need eyelid surgery rather than a brow lift. (That’s why Step 1 is so essential.)
Step 3: Screen your plastic surgeon
In the end, the results of your brow lift depend on your surgeon’s experience and ability. You need a plastic surgeon with top-notch surgical skills, a refined artistic sensibility, and the experience to create consistent results.
You can begin by reading his bio, but you should also feel free to ask Dr. Cabrera any questions you may have about his plastic surgery qualifications and experience. And you can look at his gallery of before-and-after photos.
He has been a leader in the field of plastic surgery for years, always searching for ways to improve each person’s experience. For example, he offers innovative anesthesia choices, and he created TheSmarterLift™.
