Brow Lift Surgery

Ageing can cause the brow to droop giving the face an older and tired look.

It is not uncommon for the skin above our eyes to start to droop as we get older, causing what is often referred to as the hood effect, and this make eyes look tired and the face look old. Brow lift surgery is a simple procedure carried out to lift the area directly above the eye, opening up the eye area and making the face look younger. It involves lifting the brow itself and tightening the muscles which have been stretched over time, as well as tightening any loose skin in the area and reducing excess fatty tissue. While brow lift surgery is often performed for purely cosmetic reasons, drooping brows and upper eye lids can affect vision in the most extreme of cases and this can be a quick and simple way to rectify the situation.
