With the passage of time and the effects of gravity, the upper face or brow and forehead regions can contribute to a tired and worn appearance. Sagging of these tissues can lead to an appearance of fullness in the upper eyelids even when the eyelids themselves are otherwise fine.
A brow lift is a surgical procedure designed to focus on the signs of aging specifically on the forehead area, and can also referred to as a forehead lift. This procedure will lift the brows and address horizontal lines across the forehead.
What does a brow lift do?
Aging causes the face to wrinkle and droop in many places, including the forehead. A brow lift can help with the following concerns on the forehead.
Your plastic surgeon will give you an honest assessment and let you know if you are a good candidate for a brow lift, but in general you should be in good overall health with no medical conditions that can impair healing, must be a nonsmoker or willing to quit smoking, and have realistic expectations.
How to maximize your brow lift results

Your plastic surgeon will provide tailor-made recommendations to you depending on the extent of the signs of aging, age, lifestyle and desired results.
