Brow lift surgery is an effective option for patients in Stockton who want to reduce the look of being tired or angry that results from lowered brows.

Dr. Gerald Bock of California Skin and Laser Center is a dermatologist who offers many plastic surgery options to patients in and around the area of Stockton. When patients are faced with forehead lines, wrinkles, and other imperfections of the face, they often turn to experienced dermatologists and plastic surgeons to learn about the options available for them in enhancing their appearance. Those with low, sagging brows and hooding of the upper eyelids may want to speak to a professional about their options, including brow lift surgery.

Brow lift surgery, also referred to as a “forehead lift,” is a plastic surgery procedure that is used to reduce the sagging of the eyebrows and lift the brows upward, while also reducing the appearance of wrinkles and folds across the forehead. Instead of a traditional face lift that addressees both the upper and lower portions of the face, this treatment is dedicated to improving the upper area. Horizontal creases along the forehead and vertical folds between the eyebrows are greatly reduced with this particular procedure.

Brow lift surgery is one way for patients to improve their appearance dramatically. However, brow lift surgery is not the only option for patients who are faced with fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead area. In some instances, Dr. Gerald Bock may suggest a less invasive procedure that can help temporarily improve the appearance. This may include injectables.

Cosmetic injectables are commonly used in dermatological practices to address the unwanted signs of aging. When patients are specifically concerned about the glabellar lines (lines between the eyebrows, sometimes called the “elevens”), and forehead folds, Botox® and Dysport™ are two injectables that may be recommended. These neuromodulators reduce muscle contractions and can provide many months of improvement for mild to moderate forehead and eyebrow folds. They are definitely options for patients to consider as an alternative to surgical intervention.

Either neuromodulators or brow lift surgery can be used to enhance one’s overall appearance. If you want to find out if either option is the best choice for improving your appearance contact Dr. Gerald Bock and his professional team today to book a consultation appointment.
