What Is A Male Brow Lift?
As we age, the eyebrows can droop. This heavy appearance can cause a hooded effect over the eye, making you appear worried, grumpy, and tired. Environmental factors such as sun exposure and stress can create deep lines on the forehead. A brow lift is a procedure that raises the eyebrows and reduces creases and furrows on the forehead. It can be performed by itself or along with other procedures, such as a blepharoplasty or facelift.
Benefits of a Male Brow Lift
A brow lift can restore the natural position of the eyebrows as well as improve and soften wrinkles on the forehead. This makes you appear rested and relaxed. Tightening and lifting sagging eyebrows and eyelid skin can improve wrinkles and lines. Many patients experience a boost in self-confidence and esteem, which can energize social and professional experiences.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For A Male Brow Lift?
