1. WHAT ARE SURGICAL BROW LIFTS?

A brow lift can surgically correct sagging skin, hooding of the eyelids and even lines on the forehead. If you have heavy eyes, a wrinkled forehead, a brow lift may be for you. Dr. Esmail has a minimalist approach to the brow lift. Using 4 small 2 cm incisions, the attachments of the brow are released and relaxed. The brow is then fixated in a higher position.
