How Will a Browlift/Lower Facelift Effect Part of the Face that Were Untouched By Surgery?

about lifting the face. how does all this work. for eg if one person gets a brow lift and leaves the rest of their face alone doesnt that mean that the face will age irregularly? or if they get a lower face lift and dont get anything else done etc etc im confused. secondly, can a browlift be done in the mid twenties to actually manipulate the angle of the brow ?. im a male and i would like my brows more angled. will this or do browlifts in general have a major impact in ones appeareance?

Browlift/ Lower facelift.

The purpose of the lower facelift is to rejuvenate that part of the face that ages first. Most of the time, this is the chin, jowl and neck. There is more elastic tissue there. That alone will not cause much asymmetry. A lateral browlift can alter the brow angle so long as the suture suspension is done to a fixed point. That can be done at any age. All the best

           A male in his twenties is usually not a great candidate for a brow lift.  However, an exam would be necessary to make any determination in this respect as well as a discussion of your goals and expectations.
