Many people have sagging eyebrows giving rise to a tired, and unhappy appearance. Low eyebrows often exacerbate the appearance of fullness and excessive loose skin of the upper lids.
Upper eyelid surgery by itself is not always appropriate to remove the excessive skin of the upper lids, especially when the eyebrows are in a low position.
An increasing number of people are turning to lip lift surgery as a relatively simple way to take years off their appearance.
As we age, the upper lip lengthens and the upper teeth show less with smiling and talking. Many people (both men and women)
