When seeking the best eyebrows for your face shape or yearning to appear younger, a brow lift might be the perfect procedure for you. “Brow lifts help rejuvenate the upper face and forehead. When done correctly, the procedure helps make the patient appear more awake and vibrant without an unnatural surprised look. The forehead skin is smoother and the brows sit in a more youthful position. The procedure can be combined with a skin resurfacing procedure such as laser or chemical peel to help with pigmentation and fine wrinkles,” says plastic surgeon and RealSelf contributor, David Shafer, MD.

Never heard of it? Here are eight more plastic surgery procedures you didn’t know existed. Kybella is an injectable treatment that helps to reduce fat under the chin. Yes, with this procedure you will be able to take the perfect selfie, the first time, every single time. Dr. Shafer says that it “helps reduce double chin or submental fullness. It is an in-office procedure with a few injections under the chin which help melt the fat. The procedure does require several treatments over several months, but it’s great for patients who do not want to go to the operating room for procedures such as neck liposuction or do not have time for the recovery of a surgical procedure. You can see from the after picture a nice cervical-mental angle with a defined jawline and natural contour to the neck.”
In this patient’s case, three different procedures were done and spaced one month apart, and the fat has been completely removed from under her chin for a completely dramatic transformation that every woman strives for.
