Have you looked at your reflection lately and wondered why you seem to appear a bit angry or overly tired? For many patients of Dr. Craig E. Berris MD at the Center for Cosmetic Eyelid and Laser Surgery in Sacramento, CA, the answer to this riddle is simple – their brow tissue has started to sag!

The loss of elasticity in the skin is unavoidable and it impacts the brow area as well as other parts of the body. Add that to our tendencies to frown, wrinkle the brow or even raise the eyebrows and it can lead to more exaggerated brow sagging. Fortunately, among the different plastic surgery options that Dr. Berris provides to our clients, is the option for a brow lift.

What is the brow lift? It is actually not just a single type of plastic surgery but a range of different procedures. Unlike some plastic surgeons, though, Dr. Berris is going to make a point of reviewing the different techniques used for the brow lift in order to show you the one that he will employ when performing this plastic surgery for you.

When done, regardless of the method used, you will notice that your eyebrow area will be back in a more youthful and appealing position. It will reduce frown or wrinkle lines on the forehead and brow, eliminate lines between the brow and provide a more rejuvenated appearance to the face.

Because Dr. Berris wants patients to enjoy the best results from any plastic surgery, he also reviews the additional surgical or non-surgical options that can be used along with the brow lift to create the best results. Not all patients are candidates for multiple treatments at once, but if the doctor feels you can benefit from a combination of treatments, he will review them with you.

As an example, during the brow lift, some patients also have their upper eyelids treated with a blephoroplasty. The doctor will discuss any options with you as you work on your treatment plans.

When obtaining a brow lift, it is of the utmost importance to work only with plastic surgeons who have experience and a commitment to educating their patients about the right options and choices.
