Brow Lift Animation

The skin, the body's largest organ, is a fairly resilient and elastic tissue. However, aging, stress, and environmental factors can affect the appearance of the skin over time. A surgical procedure called a brow lift can help correct sagging eyebrows, as well as furrowed lines between the eyebrows and across the forehead that result from aging. During a brow lift, an incision is made in the hairline and the skin of the forehead and brow is freed from the underlying tissues. While the skin is lifted, fat and, if necessary, excess skin is removed. Following the surgery the incisions are generally hidden in the hairline and the face is left with a more youthful appearance. There are several potential complications associated with this procedure that should be discussed with a doctor prior to surgery.
