Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner are known for their striking facial features. In recent years, this look has become an inspiration for many millennials across the globe.
While surgical brow lifts were previously sought after by an older generation, the procedure is now dominating a younger demographic. Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Sagar Patel believes this is because of celebrities like Hadid and Jenner, who have a fierce, almost feline gaze. In 2021, all eyes are on this area of the face following the pandemic and frequent mask-wearing.
To achieve a lateral brow lift or “cat-eye” brow lift, board-certified facial plastic surgeon Sarmela Sunder raises a patient’s lateral third of their eyebrows or the tails. This creates an elongated, piercing look.
While surgical brow lifts are an unconventional choice for millennials due to various non-surgical options, some people grow impatient with the idea of repeat treatments, seeking out instant gratification and lasting results. But, despite the recent demand, many plastic surgeons have reservations about performing surgical brow lifts on younger patients. Just like all surgeries, a surgical brow lift comes with risks. Many plastic surgeons recommend seeking out less permanent options to start to see if a brow lift is truly what they want.
At Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery, there are several options for those interested in a brow lift. The traditional brow lift can reverse the effects of gravity on the face, creating a more youthful appearance. If you’re not ready for surgery just yet, our team offers alternatives that can also help reverse signs of aging, such as Botox injections and a Liquid Facelift.
