Brow Lift – Oklahoma City
What is a brow lift?
A brow lift, or a forehead lift:
- Reduces the wrinkle lines that appear across the forehead, as well as those that develop on the bridge of the nose.
- Improves frown lines, the vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows
- Raises sagging brows that cover upper eyelids
- Places the eyebrows in a youthful position
Other cosmetic procedures that may be performed with a brow lift include:
- Upper and or lower eyelid lift
Brow lift candidates
You may be a candidate for brow lift surgery if you:
- Are physically healthy
- Have a realistic outlook and good goals
As we age, fine wrinkle lines may appear on the forehead. Frown lines between the brows can make us look angry, even when we are not. Skin relaxation may cause the eyebrows to drop, making us look tired. If you’re bothered by these signs of aging, a brow lift may be right for you.
