Question

I'm 33 years old and I have one very deep vertical frown line and it's getting worst as I age.

Is this something that can be operated on as it not horizontal frown lines also what sort of price is it?

Answer

In essence, the most common treatment for vertical frown lines is using wrinkle relaxing injections with botulinum toxin. The effect can be amplified using injectable fillers.

The surgical intervention that reduces the muscle volume and activity in the frown region can be part of a forehead lift or, and upper eyelid blepharoplasty.

My view is that for an isolated problem of this type, surgery should not be the first choice, and an attempt to improve the appearance using nonsurgical treatment may be the best first step.
