Forehead lifts correct a variety of aging problems

You can use a forehead lift to make yourself look younger, more energetic and more attractive if you have creases across the forehead and frown lines between the eyebrows. If you have low or sagging eyebrows or excess skin over your eyes, if you think you look older and more tired than you want to look, and especially if you’re having trouble keeping your eyes fully open, a forehead lift can help you with all this. In fact, if you have a medical need for a forehead lift to open your eyes all the way, you might be able to have some of the cost covered by insurance or Medicare.
