Eyebrow and Forehead Lift
An eyebrow lift, also referred to as a brow lift or forehead lift, worry and tension lines on the forehead are softened and the brow is raised to provide a more youthful, energetic appearance. This procedure is often included with a facelift and/or eyelid surgery.
The scars may be at or hidden behind the hairline. The muscles that produce the frown lines are removed and the eyebrows are positioned at a higher level. This improves a “tired” or “angry” look and often replaces the need for an upper eyelid lift by improving upper eyelid skin hooding. Dr. Steven Yarinsky can significantly rejuvenate areas of the upper face with this effective procedure.
