Plastic surgeon Dr. Deborah Ekstrom understands that brows sag as you age, and deep wrinkles can be created on the forehead from years of facial expressions, which is why he offers brow lift surgery, also known as a forehead lift, at Salisbury surgical center in Worcester, MA. A brow lift procedure is designed to restore the appearance of the eyebrows and forehead. However, the degree of achievement depends on the severity of the initial deformity and the elasticity of your skin tissue. The overall goal is to reduce the wrinkles and frown lines that develop across the forehead skin, between the eyes, and the bridge of the nose. The procedure also raises a sagging brow, which covers the upper eyelids to create a more alert and youthful appearance.
