Is there a typical age to have a browlift?
Thirty-five years of age and older. An endoscopic brow lift is not necessarily an age-related procedure since younger patients often have inappropriately low-set eyebrows. There is no arbitrary age at which a patient is too young or too old for brow lift surgery. Patients have different genetic endowments and different lifestyles. Premature aging caused by smoking, sun-damage, and yo-yo weight changes significantly affect facial aesthetics. Facial bone structure, inherited skin thickness and eyebrow characteristics such as shape and density, have major implications. The most dramatic feature would be someone with little or no eyebrows. The surgeon should base his surgical plan on the anatomy and an artistic appreciation of facial aesthetics. Arbitrary rules as to age and measurements serve as guidelines but are not rigid. Every patient is unique.
