A forehead lift or "browlift" is used to correct a drooping browline (eyebrow area) reducing the horizontal lines and furrows (worry lines) that often make a person appear angry, sad or tired. The browlift procedure creates a refreshed, youthful appearance to the forehead area above the eyes. It is most often carried out in conjunction with facelift and eyelid surgery to give a complete sense of balance to facial rejuvenation.
