Is Brow Lift Surgery Right For Me?

Aging is a part of life but we don’t have to let that stop us from looking our best. As we age our muscles lose their elasticity and as a result our skin will begin to sag. A NJ brow lift will prevent you from looking as though you are tired or angry all of the time. Brow lifts, or forehead lifts as they are sometimes called, will raise your eyebrows and tighten the skin on your forehead. This will reduce the appearance of any lines or wrinkles on your forehead.

If you feel you meet this criteria then you may be the perfect candidate for a brow lift procedure.

The best NJ candidates for brow lift surgery are otherwise healthy adult men, who are nonsmokers and who feel that their sagging or low eyebrow position creates a sad or tired look to their eyes that does not reflect the way they feel inside.  A brow lift procedure is also ideal if you have deep horizontal lines across your forehead or on the bridge of your nose.  Often brow lift patients who request an upper eyelid surgery because of hooding of skin over the upper eyelids really need a brow lift instead.
