Dr. Rivela’s office is so peaceful and everyone is so welcoming! I first met Dr. Rivela and he was so kind and personal. I had chemical peels and derma-pen done, and everyone went so smoothly! Wendy did all my procedures and she is absolutely amazing! She knows what she is doing! She will bring you a blanket and make you feel at home during the procedure. 🙂 I highly recommend Rivela Plastic Surgery to anyone, don’t go anywhere else except here!
Good candidates for a brow lift are non-smokers in good physical health with realistic expectations regarding the outcome of surgery.
A brow lift (or forehead lift) is a commonly performed procedure designed to raise your eyebrows to a more aesthetically pleasing position. In addition, it improves lateral hoods, softens horizontal wrinkles on the forehead, and will smooths scowl lines between the eyebrows.
For skin subjected to years of damage from environmental effects, lifting the brow is a popular choice to help reverse the signs of aging. This procedure is often used in conjunction with a facelift and eye surgery, a brow lift helps create a more youthful, refreshed overall appearance. This can also be a great option for younger candidates who have inherited traits, such as a low brow.

- Why you want surgery, expectations, and desired outcome
- Medical conditions, drug allergies, and medical treatments
