A recent report released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) revealed that more patients are seeking browlifts than ever before. According to the 2011 report known as “Trends in Facial Plastic Surgery,” browflifts (forehead lifts) were one of the top 10 sought after cosmetic plastic surgery procedures during 2011.

This may shock some, but La Peer Health Systems facial plastic surgeon, Carlo Honrado, MD, FACS, understands why browlifts are steadily increasing in popularity. “Browlift surgery is a great way to rejuvenate a patient’s facial appearance,” said Dr. Honrado.        

“Your forehead ceases to become a reflection of your mood, and instead becomes an aesthetic burden that can interfere with your confidence and clarity of expression,” explained Dr. Honrado. Women have been exploring the benefits plastic surgery can offer for years, and now both men and women are discovering the anti-aging advantages of a brow lift.

According to the study, forehead (or brow) lifts were unquestionably more popular with women, and with older patients, with 58 percent in the 35 - 60 year old age group, followed by 40% in the 61 and older demographic.

While everyone is at the mercy of aging, one can definitely grow older gracefully and benefit from the continually advancing plastic surgery techniques. Brow lifts can quickly help to soften the face. “Browlifts are safe, effective, and impressive, and the results can be significant,” said Dr. Honrado. All in all, most of the time the goal of a browlift is to smooth the forehead wrinkles and lift drooping brows by tightening or removing excess loose skin. However, more importantly is the positive impact a browlift can have not only on a patient's overall appearance, but the improvements in their self-confidence.
