Eyebrow lift is an aesthetic procedure applied to save the person from low eyebrows and a tired facial appearance. It is generally preferred by individuals between the ages of 30 – 60.
As a result of aging, the skin loses its elasticity. Sagging and wrinkles are seen in various parts of the body. The forehead and eyebrow area are also the first places where signs of aging are seen. The sagging of the eyebrows and upper eyelids can accumulate on the eyes over time, making it difficult for the person to see. As a result, a tense, angry, tired facial expression may occur. In this point, the eyebrow lift provides a solution for this problem.
