Brow Lift

Brow Lift in Newport Beach

A brow lift, also known as forehead lift, is a cosmetic procedure that helps restore the position of the eye brows creating a youthful contour. Sagging eye brows can result in a tired and sad appearance. Deep creases in the forehead and frown lines will develop as the forehead muscles compensate for a lower brow position. A brow lift will elevate the brow to restore normal eye contour, aid in reducing excess upper eyelid skin, help eliminate forehead wrinkles and frown lines. Forehead rejuvenation is often combined with other procedures such as facelift and upper eyelid surgery.
