A brow lift, which is also regarded as a forehead lift, raises sagging brows that are hooding the upper eyelids. It places the eyebrows in an alert and youthful position and reduces the wrinkle lines that develop horizontally across the forehead. Brow lifts also improve frown lines and vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows.
