Beverly Hills CA Deep Plane Facelift

Are you tired of investing in anti-aging treatments that wear off after a few weeks or months? Perhaps you are ready for a more permanent solution but think you are too young for facelift surgery.

The tail and front of the brow will also tend to recede, and it is not uncommon to find white or grey hairs in the eyebrows as you reach your 50’s or 60’s. The loss of hair color in the brows will also cause them to be coarser than they used to be. Finally, and most notably, the eyebrows lose their youthful arch as we age, which can pull down the eyes and make them look droopy or sad. … Continue reading
