What Is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift is a surgical procedure that can enhance your eyebrows and the forehead. Age can cause your brows to shift, pushing them further down. This is coupled with a loss of skin elasticity that can cause the eyebrows to move closer to the eyelashes. 

A brow lift can target these areas and help you achieve a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
